Every once in a while, a very special condo comes to market – the one with space, luxury and brilliant view. Penthouse 1607 at King George Square is such a place.
A boutique style building, King George Square is nestled neatly at the corner of King and Jarvis streets, with a discretely set back approach to the entrance and lobby. With only 15 floors, the intimacy can be felt from the moment you enter the front doors. Each floor has been renovated to appeal to a warm but modern sensibility, and the Penthouse floor is no exception.
This Penthouse suite dazzles – upon entering you are greeted by a contrast of light and dark with soft grey toned wood floors and white walls bathed in recessed light, rough and polished textures of split faced marble walls with perfectly inset mirrors to magnify the space, custom designed doors with frosted glass sidelights and custom hardware – the list goes on.
Once inside, the fabulous gourmet kitchen appears before you – set against a window with the cityscape as a backdrop – no better way to spend time preparing a meal. Jenn-Air top end stainless steel appliances abound including wall ovens, fridge, dishwasher, and even a bar fridge. Custom millwork and quartz counters exemplify the clean cool urban edge while the island has lots of room at the counter to pull up stools to enjoy socializing. Double stainless steel sinks are set in front of the window with the view of St James Park – a truly special feature.
The open concept Living-Dining Room is wrapped in windows and walls of mirror and split faced white marble – featuring a built in “eco” ethanol fireplace from Summerhill Hardware. The views to the north and west are incomparable – there is just nothing better than watching the sunset from your living room, or west facing terrace while the city lights twinkle as night approaches. Recessed down lights highlight walls for your art collection, while the grey tones of the wood floors add warmth and luxury.
At the end of the hallway and set privately away from the public spaces, the Master Bedroom has built in closets; broadloom and a stunning glass and marble Ensuite with custom millwork. Designer faucets and details are everywhere.
At the other end of the condo is the second bedroom, currently a “ManCave”, which has built in closets and an entertainment centre with lots of room for a bed or you can keep it set up as a media room. The second bath just outside the door is trimmed in warmer toned marble with custom millwork and designer faucets and hardware.
The den or nursery located outside the Master Suite features a beautiful bank of built in closets – storage for the most serious wardrobe, and a western view across the park to the downtown core.
With no detail left untouched, this customized Penthouse provides incredible value for space, view and luxury living, while maintaining privacy and intimacy not found in large towers. Two parking spots, locker, concierge, St James Park, the St Lawrence Market, Air Canada Centre, the King East Design District, Starbucks across the street and fabulous cafes and bistros everywhere – this condo has everything you need to enjoy urban living at it’s absolute finest.
