Description

View a VIDEO CLIP of this outstanding suite primarily on North East corner suite of the Kensington. Circa 1912, The building's conception was a sought-after luxury apartment over looking Kensington Meadows

Features

It featured a water view roof top lounge, maid's quarters, dumb waiters and gentleman sitting rooms. The old-world charm is still reflected in the massive reception rooms, oak hardwood floors, 9'ceilings and crown mouldings. Excerpts from the book "Robin Ward's Vancouver" suggest that the Kensington's architect drew his source of inspiration and interpretations from Italian Villas. For the Buyer, the Kensington lends itself beautifully to any styles: Character lovers will appreciate the architectural details evident in all of the spacious rooms, including exposed beams, and golden oak and fir flooring. Non-conformists can add modern statements as evident in several other suites.

Suite 56 enters thru an impressive foyer that houses the central fireplace and offers a cosy spot to have after dinner drinks or have a simple writing desk. This then leads to the large entertainment rooms. There is a sense of refinement within the generous rooms that are adorned with museum quality pieces from Three Centuries Antiques. You will find quiet elegance within both the formal dining room and the sumptuous sitting room. The kitchen has incorporated the original maid's quarters and is now modern but keeping within the atmosphere. There is a gas stove, tons of cupboard space, bright windows, including the insuite laundry area and the attractive powder room. The partial renovation was featured in a past issue of Canadian House and Home. Down the hall are the large bedrooms, with one facing north and one facing south. There is a glimpse of the lovely trees that line Beach Avenue from both the south facing dining room and the second bedroom. There is secured underground parking with additional spots available for a very reasonable monthly rental. Some Pets and investment rentals are permitted.
