Chic, industrial and exposed might be your style, but so might having a proper painted ceiling over your head that isn’t just piping and mouldy cement. Introducing this lovely little apartment in Sydney’s Surry Hills that is currently asking for $550 a week. Cue coffee spitting right about now.
Currently, the listing for this absolute dreamboat of a property on Hutchison Street describes it as having “unique interiors in a stylish boutique block,” which I must say is a charming way of describing an upstairs loft that will leave anyone over 5’5 scraping their scalp on some concrete.
Have a look at these charming pictures. Steel piping comes included, for that modern chic look that you really don’t see enough of in Surry Hills.
“With a chic industrial edge & set amongst the Surry Hills design precinct, this generous apartment is located in the acclaimed De La Vega designed warehouse conversion,” reads the description for this apartment.
I mean, if you whispered “De La Vega designed warehouse conversion” into my ear, my heart would race a little, but that doesn’t change the fact that this apartment has the ugliest fkn ceiling ever.
The fact the place is going for $550 a week is probably the most insulting part of all this. For something in Surry Hills, you’d expect just a little bit more refinement? A little more structure? A little less piping just wagging around in front of your face all the time?
The outside of the apartment however is super chic. I might just get this place to tell everyone that I live inside the building, without specifying where exactly.
I mean look at how sexy this picture makes everything look. Pretty on the outside, but she’s harbouring dark secrets. Aren’t we all, Miss Hutchison Street?
And unlike some horror houses we’ve seen in the past, this apartment actually has a nice bathroom! Fancy that!
When my western Sydney mother warned me about Surry Hills, I didn’t know she meant crazy shit like this.
