Description

View a VIDEO CLIP of this prized suite in "The Kensington". Circa 1912, The building's conception was a beach side luxury apartment with roof top lounge, maid's quarters, dumb waiters and gentleman sitting rooms.

Features

Certainly one of English Bay's most distinctive addresses. The old-world charm is reflected in the massive reception rooms, oak hardwood floors, high ceilings, crown mouldings, and irreplaceable open flame gas fireplaces. "Robin Ward's Vancouver" suggest that the Kensington's architect drew his source of inspiration and interpretations from Italian Villas. The design shows imagination rather than academic imitation, particularly in decorative details: A multitude of ferocious lions' heads snarl from the cornice. There are ornamental iron lamp standards that strike notes of grandeur on the stairs. Recessed balconies and adventurous use of concrete add touches of originality to the theatrical Edwardian facade.

Amenities

For the past 20 years, this heritage condominium has been furnished to embrace the style of a classic Paris apartment. The most perfect pieces have been collected from world travel or exclusively from Three Centuries Antiques. This particular suite simply has no wasted space and feels much bigger then the square footage suggests. The kitchen was cleverly moved to the original maid's quarters and thus creating a comfortable family room while leaving the huge entertainment rooms for a bit more formality or quiet moments enjoying the water views. The Master and the powder room have been upgraded with Marble finishes. For the Buyer, the Kensington lends itself beautifully to any styles - including the most up to date trend or convenience. The strata complex itself has been upgraded overall and has a fresh ochre exterior paint scheme. There is secured underground parking and if required there are several additional spots may be available for resonable monthly rental.
