Think you need to move to the skyscraper-dominated skies of New York or London to find the perfect penthouse apartment? Think again. You’d be hard-pressed to find a more appealing property than Edmonton’s most expensive condo currently on the market. At $2,295,000, it is a lot cheaper than something you might find in New York, but may also be ever so slightly out of your price range. But everyone’s allowed to dream, aren’t they? And this property would offer you everything you could want, as well as quite a bit more.
CTV News just released a list of the most expensive properties currently for sale in Alberta’s capital.
And, not to get you overly excited about this condo, but it is listed alongside an actual castle and other properties that wouldn’t look out of place on MTV Cribs.
This super-luxurious penthouse apartment is set over two storeys and 3,500 square feet.
It includes three gas fireplaces, three private balconies, and a wine room. Yes, a wine room.
Do you need anything more? Well, it also has four bedrooms, three bathrooms and, should they be required, four parking stalls.
The condo has floor-to-ceiling windows, offering incredible views over the city of Edmonton and the scenery beyond, and its high ceilings and a sleek staircase add to the apartment’s stylish interior.
The apartment's rooms sit on handsome mahogany hardwood flooring, with extensive marble finishing.
It has countless other luxury features, including a walk-in wardrobe and a ceiling-high shoe rack.
“The views from every room can only be described as stunning,” says realtor Larry Hahn.
You can even enjoy incredible views from a bathtub in one of the property's washrooms.
It's no wonder the views are so good. The apartment block towers over neighbouring buildings to ensure it offers the best panoramas of the surrounding area.
The penthouse is in the Pearl Condominium building, which has a concierge service, high-tech security, a private gym, and an owners’ lounge with an outdoor patio.
The property is ideally located for hikes on the nearby river valley trails and is minutes away from shops and restaurants, or a short drive from Downtown and the University of Alberta.
The $2,295,000 price tag may sound like a lot.
But that’s nothing compared with a castle-style home that is on the Edmonton market for $8.5 million.
Not to mention the Vancouver condo that was selling for $38,888,000 last summer.
