One of the Most Spectacular Views in the World: The Bay Watch House – Sydney
January 21, 2013 - Australia
"It's like a constant show and it changes several times a day", says the current resident of The Bay Watch House - Sydney about the uninterrupted 180 degrees view of the famous Harbour Bridge and Sydney Opera House: "always the same, never the same!"
Because of its position on the north-west hill of Rose Bay, The Bay Watch House faces directly the Sydney Harbour and its historical bridge.
In the morning, you have the lingering mist which seems to be wrapping up the majestic Harbour Bridge in a gigantic bowl of cotton. Then, around lunch time, the brightest aqua-marine light comes up and stays all afternoon before the sunset brings the most incredible colours of red, to orange and purple in the sky. It never stops.
Only a handful of houses in Sydney enjoy such a spectacular sight.
But the view is not the not only asset of this prestigious property.
Over the years, the owners, who frequently travel to Asia, have brought a distinctive atmosphere of Chinese culture inside and outside the house. From the Ming and Tang dynasty statues, to the Imperial robes of the Qing dynasty and to the running cascades down from the Xian soldiers, the house provides a constant atmosphere of peace and tranquillity of the most authentic Zen philosophy.
The house has been impeccably maintained. You have to see it to understand its beauty and feel the serenity it provides.
The Bay Watch House - Sydney has its own website (with about 30 pictures) which describes the various features of this unique property which will provide endless happiness for its new owners: www.TheBayWatchHouse.com
