Description

View a VIDEO CLIP of this massive 3 bedroom the on the prized southwest corner at the Kensington. Circa 1912, The building's conception was luxury apartments over looking lovely meadows or out to English bay.

Features

It is written that the Kensington's original architect drew his exterior inspiration from several European villas and the old-world charm is reflected in that. There are massive reception rooms with oak hardwood floors, high ceilings, crown mouldings and irreplaceable open flame gas fireplaces. In the early days the building featured a roof top lounge, maid's quarters, dumb waiters and gentleman's cigar lounges with an classic "Upstairs Downstairs" social order. Today, each individual suite lends itself beautifully to any number of styles - including the most up to date decorating trend or convenience. The property has been upgraded thru time and the current monthly strata fees includes professional management, gas, hot water and contributions to the overall upkeep.

Voila! This particularly gracious home is the quintessential posh Parisian pied de Terre. A commanding marble foyer perfectly directs the flow from the sophisticated spaces to the more casual corners. The scale of the principal entertainment rooms in the Kensington are majestic and this suite certainly lives up to the legend. The present owners usage of the expansive floor plan is brilliant and in particular with the creation of the formal music room. This sunny room has become one of the more favoured spaces as it offers some of the best water views which are set over a blanket of cherry trees. Nearby, the silhouette of the dining table is simply striking against the bank of French doors which open out to the 14 foot long balcony (with more views of English Bay). For those who have experienced the romance of a typical Paris apartment - that does mean that the new owner should expect to deliver imagination and further investment to bring the property to their personal taste.
