New residential development, Paragon of Pyrmont, is the kind of luxurious living we thought was only possible in movies. Setting aside the inner-city views, private rooftops, and impeccable design and architecture, it’s the futuristic home automation and ‘smart’ features of the houses that caught our eye.
Comprising a collection of 1 and 3 bedroom apartments and 3, 4, and 5 bedroom terrace houses, Paragon of Pyrmont is a new benchmark of luxury, inner-city living in Sydney. Designed by renowned architecture and design firm, SJB, the residences are beautifully crafted with timber, marble, and glass throughout. They also feature top of the line appliances and fixtures, like a sleek Gaggenau French door fridge and freezer in the kitchens, and streamlined Rogerseller-style ‘touch activated’ cabinetry in the living areas and kitchens. Not to mention the 50″ plasma TV in the living rooms too.
Each of the 31 residences that form Paragon of Pyrmont is stacked with cool features. The home automation especially is really neat, with everything from lights, air-conditioning, to security and even power consumption able to be controlled from a tablet or smartphone. Moreover, each apartment and terrace have their own private basement garage, which also features ‘smart’ technologies. They can recognise when their resident’s car is nearby, subsequently opening the garage door automatically, turning the lights on, and ensuring the private lift (yep – private lift), is ready to take them up to their home. The garages have ample space for extra storage too, as well as a temperature-controlled wine cellar that can hold up to 1,000 bottles. It’s these kinds of features that take the development to the next level.
Remaining at the fore of new technologies and innovations, Thirdi Group – the people behind the residences, are in talks with TESLA to install Tesla PowerWalls and Tesla PowerPacks in the buildings, allowing the residents to secure power and store off-peak times for private consumption.
Construction of Paragon of Pyrmont is set to begin this September, with completion expected at the beginning of 2019.
