The Apartment Suite
Enter into a spacious foyer and down a hallway (the perfect gallery wall) opening into the large open-plan living room/dining room and kitchen. The main spaces are oriented south, allowing light to pour in throughout the day. The current owner has carefully and tastefully renovated the entire apartment introducing a new bespoke kitchen and two luxurious bathrooms. No space was overlooked and the suite shows a sense of style that is achieved only by a complete renovation. Gutted and redone the suite is clean and understated, bearing all the hallmarks of todays modern amenities and lifestyles. A wall of new windows and door view and open to the south-facing, treetop and private balcony. Large enough for dinner parties.
The spaces of this bright three-bedroom apartment are designed on a linear plan into two separate wings, for living and sleeping, linked by the main hallway with the bedrooms to one end of the suite allowing for privacy and a true division of spaces.
The principal rooms are accented by recessed lighting , wood floors ( throughout) a wood burning fireplace with custom tiled floor to ceiling mantle façade and hearth. These rooms are wide and provide exceptional space.
Any chef or homeowner will appreciate such the outstanding kitchen. With new custom cabinets made with Russian birch, Caesarstone countertops and island , new double sink, with hot water dispenser, high end appliances ( Liebherr fridge with icemaker, Bosch cooktop, AEG oven, AEG microwave)and accents such as the tile work and hidden gems like the built in step ladder.
What once was a small powder room has been redefined into a sophisticated 3 pc bathroom that stay true to the color scheme and quality of the rest of the renovation.
On the other side of the Foyer are the three bedrooms. Fully and tastefully redone to the palette of rest of the renovation. There is excellent closet space. The Main Bedroom allows for a King size bed and lots of dressers if needed- there is a full wall of closet. Two other bedrooms provides an owner a quest room or offices - they have closets, pretty sunny window alcoves and built in display shelves. The main bathroom is fresh and crisp providing two sinks and a walk in shower as well as a make up vanity area. Beautifully appointed.
This is a perfect home for the busy executive couple or single who want a great lifestyle.
Added are such items as mini duct air and heating units, an abundance of recessed lighting , solid core designer doors, designer switches and plates, the list goes on and on .....
Well run building and a status certificate is on file.
