Aeroplanes are not the only things taking off at Mascot. Property values are also heading skywards.

Aeroplanes are not the only things taking off at Mascot. Property values are also heading skywards.

A three-storey, six-bedroom 'super-penthouse' will smash price records for the suburb by more than half a million dollars if it achieves its asking price of $2.4 Million.

The 314m² penthouse has been created by combining apartments of two separate titles. It spans top three floors in Futra, Australia's most intelligent residential building.

The developer Longton says the amalgamation was done to further enhance the cache of Futra and to offer home-like living in a single apartment.

The floorplan cleverly combines spacious entertaining areas with discreetly-located rooms offering the utmost privacy, and taps into a demand for comfort, substance and prestige.

"Three generations of the one family could live in the penthouse because there are several self-contained zones," said the Managing Director of Longton, Steven Yu. "The penthouse would also suit someone who liked entertaining on a grand scale, and who wanted the room to have guests stay over."

The large terrace is perfect for parties or for a relaxed alfresco family breakfast, and because Futra is bounded by a park on two sides and has a 25-metre separation from any other building the penthouse gains commanding views in all directions.

Futra is a curvaceous building at 103-105 O'Riordan Street in Mascot scheduled for completion by the middle of 2014. Entry is by fingerprint recognition, an electronic noticeboard in the lobby displays social media information, residents' tweets and select Facebook messages, and an iPad controls most functions within each apartment.

Tech-savvy buyers have rushed Futra, with 48 apartments selling in the first six weeks. Just six apartments remain, including the penthouse, which offers an unmatched lifestyle for Mascot.

The designer kitchen has quartz benchtops and splashbacks, and Delonghi appliances. The master bathroom is pure indulgence, with a sumptuous freestanding bath, twin ceramic wash basins and vanities, natural stone floors and an overhead rainfall shower.

Marble is used for integrated joinery, suspended shelving and appliance bays, and a Manhattan-style fireplace in the living area enhances the ambience.

"The quality of the finishes is exemplary, and we have carefully considered every aspect to make the penthouse feel like a bespoke home," said Mr. Yu. "We are also including a furniture package of a premium brand in the asking price."

The top price for an apartment in Mascot is $1.83-Million in 'The Sublime' at 109-123 O'Riordan Street, purchased in August 2008.

The Futra display suite is within the Longton corporate office on the 27th floor of Darling Park Tower 2, corner of Sussex and Druitt Streets, Sydney. It is open for inspection seven days a week by appointment through 1300 669 667.
