Description

View a VIDEO CLIP of this coveted south west corner suite in one of Beach Avenue's most prominent addresses. Since 1912, this building has attracted a very sophisticated clientele; however only 21 savvy occupants can call the Kensington "home".

Features

The Kensington featured a roof top lounge, maid's quarters, dumb waiters from a central kitchen and gentleman's cigar lounges. There were oak hardwood floors, 9'ceilings and crown mouldings with captivating water views from several vantage points. The old-world charm is still reflected in formal salons and dining spaces large enough for state functions. Today many of the condominiums have been beautifully modified, modernized and personalized. This suite maybe rare as it is relatively untouched. The floor plan still offers the authentic butler's pantry and the original maid quarters (which is very useful as a bedroom, guest room or an office). The present owner has utilized the massive spaces in a 2 bedroom and den configuration. They have created a 26x14 living room and dining room combination with an adjacent family area that with double doors to close it off. You can enjoy wonderful water views from the master bedroom, den, most of the main entertainment spaces and the 14 foot long balcony. The overall condition of this condominium can be considered very clean, well kept and the decor is simply stunning. As in most suites in the building there are potential for updating in the bathrooms and perhaps the kitchen.

The building has been mechanically upgraded over time and does maintain a proper forecast for the near future. The monthly fees include professional management, gas, hot water and contributions to reserve funds. There is one secured underground parking with additional spots available for reasonable rental. Although primarily owner occupied, there are a limited number of investment rental opportunities. Most pets are curently welcome under the strata bylaws.
