“The top-floor penthouse in the newly completed Porteno complex served as the flagship showcase for this boutique development. All fixtures, from the window furnishings to the high-spec Miele appliances in the kitchen and laundry, are included in the sale,” stated agent Luke Newby.
A majority of the 41 apartments within Porteno have been purchased by owner-occupiers transitioning from spacious family homes in Seaforth, Clontarf, and the lower north shore. Developers engaged with focus groups during the design phase to understand the needs and preferences of potential buyers, customizing the units to suit their lifestyles. For instance, many buyers requested multiple bedrooms with private ensuites to accommodate guests and visiting family, as well as keyless entry for easy beach trips with just a towel.
These features have been seamlessly integrated into the apartments, which also boast 2.7-meter high ceilings, outdoor entertainment areas, and breathtaking views spanning from St. Patrick’s to the harbor, overlooking Manly Oval. Secure, direct elevator access takes you to the two parking spaces allocated to this unit, along with additional storage and electric vehicle charging capabilities.
The Porteno penthouse is at 702/26 Whistler St, Manly.
The apartment has 2.7m ceilings.
This apartment offers the Manly Beach lifestyle without the premium price tag of beachfront properties. Residents can also enjoy a communal rooftop terrace that provides remarkable panoramic views.”
