Condo of the week: 500 Queens Quay West

This condo looks more like a luxury holiday rental than a home but who wouldn’t want their home to feel like a vacation?

500 queens quay west torontoThis stunning two-storey penthouse condo has sweeping views of the lake and a gigantic terrace with a hot tub. How blissful would it be to sit in the hot tub sipping on a beer in the summer?

500 queens quay west toronto While I’m not a huge fan of the decor throughout the home the place has good bones.

500 queens quay west torontoThe open plan living room and dining room have soaring 18-foot ceilings with floor to ceiling windows that provide ample natural light and a great view of the harbour.  

500 queens quay west toronto The family room and kitchen are also open plan but the kitchen is a bit of a let down in terms of size. You would think that almost $4 million would get you a bigger kitchen.

500 queens quay west torontoUpstairs there are two bedrooms, including the master bedroom and an office.

500 queens quay west torontoThe master bedroom has a gas fireplace and an en-suite bathroom with a massive soaker tub, which looks big enough to fit two people (naughty!).

500 queens quay west torontoThe second bedroom is spacious and also has an en-suite bathroom.

500 queens quay west torontoThe odd thing about the bathroom is the drive-thru window that would let you talk to someone in the room if you were having bath time. I’m not sure I’m a fan of this. I like bath time to be alone time but to each their own.

500 queens quay west torontoBut the big selling point of this place is truly the 500 square foot terrace. The professionally designed terrace comes complete with a hot tub and gas line BBQ, making it perfect for summer parties.

500 queens quay west torontoGood For

A family that loves hosting summer BBQs. With a patio like that, it would be a shame not to take full advantage of it.

500 queens quay west torontoMove On If

You aren’t okay with a dinky kitchen. For a place that costs almost $4 million plus the nearly $2,000 in monthly fees, it would suck to have to reno a kitchen on top of everything.
