Riverside living and contemporary style meet in this secret Sydney enclave

Putney is one of those suburbs in Sydney that can go under the radar. Positioned near the better known and possibly more desirable neighbourhood of Hunters Hill, it is ideally located along the Parramatta River with easy access to ferries, waterfront parks and Ryde Shopping Centre. While the adjacent suburb of Gladesville has an abundance of apartments, contemporary family homes can be harder to find. 

Like many more coveted parts of the city, it is also experiencing a renewal of housing stock, as evidenced by this contemporary home at 111 Charles Street. Last sold in 2018 for $2.15m, the property on a 670.3sqm site has been transformed from a single storey 1970s brick residence into a five-bedroom, four-bathroom resort style home. 

Interior and exterior spaces have been treated as one, with an integrated alfresco, pool and outdoor entertaining area to the rear surrounded by well-maintained gardens.

An architect’s eye is obvious in this design, with careful attention paid to access to natural light, including double height voids over the formal living area at the front of the house, as well as the open plan living space at the rear. While finishes, including natural stone and glass balustrading, add a sense of luxury, custom designed joinery and Miele appliances ensure it is a highly functional family home.

All bedrooms are on the upper floor, with a spacious master suite with dressing room leading into the ensuite, as well as three additional bedrooms, including one with an additional ensuite.

At a time when trades are difficult to pin down and construction costs are still a concern, this property offers considered contemporary living with nothing to do. For Sydneysiders, it doesn’t get much better than that.

UAE Initiates State-Owned EV Charging Initiative to Boost Electric Vehicle Acceptance

The United Arab Emirates is improving its electric vehicle infrastructure with a new government-owned EV charging network.

Wed, May 22, 2024 2 min

The UAE Ministry of Energy and Infrastructure (MoEI) alongside Etihad Water and Electricity (Etihad WE) have collaborated to form UAEV, a new joint venture aimed at strengthening the electric vehicle (EV) charging framework throughout the UAE. This venture is the first EV charging network entirely owned by the government, aimed at broadening access to EV charging facilities across the country.

The project seeks to revolutionize the UAE’s transport sector by enabling broader adoption of EVs via a robust and widespread charging infrastructure. This initiative is expected to strengthen communities, generate employment, and promote eco-friendly transportation options.

Suhail bin Mohammed Al Mazrouei, Minister of Energy and Infrastructure, said: “UAEV embodies the power of partnership between government and industry, and aims to provide vital electric vehicle infrastructure to boost adoption of EVs, energize communities, and unleash the economic potential of the UAE.

“We hope that this partnership will further accelerate the transition to cleaner transportation and significantly reduce emissions from the transportation sector, thereby helping to bring our Net Zero 2050 Strategy within reach.”

Sharif Al Olama, who has been appointed Chairman of UAEV, said: “In 2023, we saw a rise in EV adoption in the UAE. By expanding our EV infrastructure, we ensure the country is equipped to support those who have already purchased an EV and make the prospect of switching to EV attractive.

“Together, MoEI and Etihad WE form a powerful force that can help future-proof the UAE and achieve the twin objectives of economic growth and climate action, which underpin UAEV.”

The UAEV is also a perfect platform for Etihad WE, the largest employer in the Northern Emirates and a company with a customer base of over 2 million households, to use its core competency and enhance its product offering.

Yousif Ahmed Al Ali, CEO of Etihad Water and Electricity and Board Member of UAEV, explained: “It is part of a deliberate strategy to diversify our operations, using the knowledge and experience acquired from our role as long-standing pioneers in the energy sector, to explore new products, services, projects, and investments which will benefit our customers.

“UAEV charging infrastructure will contribute to the modernization of the UAE’s transport network, help energize communities by creating new jobs, and empower our customers to make more sustainable choices.”
