The view from Dover Heights: ‘It’s like you’re coming in to land over Sydney in an A-380’
Standing in the living and dining rooms of this six-bedroom Dover Heights property and looking out at the view is a surreal experience.
The photos don’t quite capture it, but it’s as if you’re coming in to land over Sydney in an A-380.
And it’s even more pronounced on the rooftop terrace, where you can see the waves crashing at Bondi Beach on one side, through to the towers of Bondi Junction, the city skyline, the Harbour Bridge, Opera House, the harbour itself, North Sydney and beyond.

Bronte house sells $800k over reserve
Designed by Andrew Schultz of ASA Architects, the luxurious property at 11 Loombah Rd has five bedrooms and three bathrooms in the main residence over the top two levels and rooftop terrace; plus a self-contained apartment on the ground floor (rented out at $900 a week).
There’s also a six-car garage in the basement.
Balconies and terraces wrap around each level. There’s a lift, and high quality fixtures and fittings have been used in the interiors.
I was impressed by the state-of-the-art Miele gas kitchen, with a wall of white cupboards, leading out to the north-facing low-maintenance barbecue area that’s surrounded by walls of star jasmine.
The lounge has a stylish Heat & Glo gas fireplace. There are terrazzo vitrified tiled floors, recessed LED lighting, designer pendant lighting, video intercom entry, CCTV security alarm and remote-controlled electric blinds.
If the fifth bedroom isn’t required, it’s currently set up as a television room.
This concrete bunker is a far cry from the three-bedroom, one-bathroom red-brick home that once stood on the 342 sqm corner site.
The developer owner, who is moving on to his next project after building the amazing home Two-and-a-half years ago, had a party for 60 of his best mates on the rooftop for New Year’s Eve and they saw fireworks from Sans Souci in the south to Chatswood in the north. “The Vivid display has also been spectacular,” he said.
