Condo of the week: 55 Prince Arthur Avenue
Located at 55 Prince Arthur Avenue near Bloor West, this swanky 11th floor dwelling is the ultimate pad to host that New Year's Eve party overlooking the posh streets of Yorkville and the CN Tower's light show.
The three-bedroom, four-bathroom condo feels like you've entered a sublime spa. A very, very large spa spanning over 4,700 square feet and featuring two balconies. White patterned walls in the main foyer and arched ceilings flow room-to-room with sliding doors and a built-in sauna.
The massive curved space can fit over 100 guests comfortably and behind one of the sliding doors is a secret home theatre. One can easily convert the private cinema into another bedroom, but why bother? The floor-to-ceiling screen is a main attraction at any party or home screening.
The sleek kitchen has been upgraded, now featuring wood panels and an eat-in area, and down the hall the combined living and dining room is great for entertaining or just admiring the intricate decor and city views.
Individual climate controlled rooms. If your partner is always cold or vice versa, climate controlled spaces are a useful feature to regulate temperature. This unit includes two electric heat pumps for each room and upgraded baseboard vents.
MOVE ON IF
You want an ultra modern brand-new residence. Let's be honest, this unit is more than unique -- its peculiar style and decor is not for everyone. The condos at Prince Arthur is an older development, built in
, and the brown brick facade shows its age. The hotel-style lobby (and swimming pool) could use a facelift, along with the unit itself. There are plenty of newer glass towers in the area (
) but likely, the square footage will be drastically smaller than these older buildings.
