"Franconia" is one of the most highly regarded Art Deco buildings in the locale, with an imposing street entrance and luxurious wood panelled common areas which are the envy of all who visit. Properties here are typically tightly-held due to their impressive and generous scale and proportions. This Manhattan-style 2 bedroom apartment is positioned high on the fifth floor, on the peaceful side of the building away from bustling Macleay Street. The immaculate patterned ceilings and rich polished floors take you back to a time when homes were built to last. Both bedrooms, which are large, have a spectacular view towards the city skyline and Harbour Bridge. The spacious kitchen, which incorporates a dining area, is a rare pleasure indeed. A classic bathroom with original tiles and surfaces, tells the story of a property which is in excellent condition, but still with opportunity to personalise or transform into something even more magical. This is a residential opportunity not to be missed.
"Franconia", 123-125 Macleay Street dates from around 1930. Its spectacular, if squat, "Gothic" entry forms a theatrical incident on the street. The base of the building appears to be made from synthetic stone, a material that had originated in America in the last decades of the nineteenth century but was introduced into Australia only around 1927 or 1928. This is, therefore, a very early application of the material, especially for a tall apartment building. It is also quite rare.
