View a VIDEO CLIP of this Kensington south west corner suite. 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. The old-world charm is reflected in the massive reception rooms, oak hardwood floors, high 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. 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 a note of grandeur on the stairs. Recessed balconies and adventurous use of concrete add touches of originality to the theatrical Edwardian facade.


There is an impressively large foyer to properly greet your guests. This then leads to the enormous entertainment rooms which have been adequately utilized by many of Vancouver's artistic and celebrity circle. In the 1940's the principal rooms formed part of the Lieutenant Governor's Residence. The 14x25 Livingroom opens through French doors to a large west facing balcony offering park and water views plus an interesting perceptive of pedestrian activity below. There is quiet elegance within the 14x18 formal dining room with soaring ceilings and two sets of mullioned windows. The kitchen was moved to the original maid's quarters and this has created a comfortable den or TV room. To the south, the two main bedrooms have views of Kits Point and the sparkling waters of English Bay.

For the Buyer, the Kensington lends itself beautifully to any styles - including the most up to date trend or convenience. The strata complex has been upgraded thru time and features an outstanding ochre exterior paint scheme. There is secured underground parking with several additional spots available for a very reasonable monthly rental.
