Panoramic Penthouse in Fairview

In a city as beautiful as Vancouver, you want a home that maximizes the amazing view. Imagine getting to see the mountain-lined horizon with all the sparkling downtown skyscrapers in the foreground, all as you sip your morning coffee on the generous balcony. This is exactly what you get in the stylish, sunny penthouse at 977 West 8th Avenue.

Located on the top floor of a boutique building in the beautiful Fairview neighbourhood, the penthouse was designed by acclaimed architect Arthur Erickson. Erickson cleverly used floor-to-ceiling windows in place of a wall in the main living area to fully embrace the view.

You won’t want to keep a view like this to yourself. Fortunately, entertaining is made easy with the open concept floor plan. The professional kitchen, featuring Bosch appliances and high quality finishes, flows seamlessly into the dining area. The balcony is also easily accessible from both the kitchen and living area, perfect for parties on warm summer evenings where guests can dine while taking in the enviable cityscape panorama.

On less carefree days, the separate office offers a sanctuary for getting important work done. It is conveniently sized for holding small meetings with colleagues, and the entertainer’s flavour of the home makes it simple to hold such meetings.

When it’s time to retire for the day, the skyline panorama follows you to the master bedroom. With another floor-to-ceiling window situated right next to the bed, you can watch the twinkling lights of the downtown skyscrapers as you drift off to sleep.

This is a true modern residence, perfect for those who value comfort and convenience. It features two bedrooms, two bathrooms, geothermal heating and air conditioning, two parking stalls, and a security system.

This penthouse is beautiful on the inside with huge, sun-filled windows and a stylish open concept. Surrounded by both nature and urban landscapes, it’s impossible for it to not be beautiful on the outside as well. With a full panorama of the North Shore mountains and the skyscrapers of downtown, this is the perfect home for anyone who appreciates true beauty.
