Someone just snatched up what must be one of the city's sparkliest penthouse suites, and there's no doubt the buyer believes in taking care of themselves, a balanced diet, and a rigorous exercise routine.
Described as "Architectural Digest-worthy," Ph27 - 637 Lakeshore Boulevard West recently sold for $3 million -- a pretty penny, albeit less than the property's original asking price of $3,149,000.
Spanning two storeys, the penthouse unit could be described as minimalist... but to the max. Featuring 180-degree views of the surrounding cityscape (including the CN Tower looking close enough to reach out and touch), framed by floor-to-ceiling windows throughout, the space sparkles as sunlight gleans off many a slick, silver surface.
Each of the address's rooms could hold its own as the star of the show. The living room, for example, is framed by views you're unlikely to see outside the realms of a big-budget movie, or perhaps your wildest dreams. With the lake in one direction and the CN Tower in the other, whichever direction you look, you're captivated. The kitchen, too, is stunning. With the cooking space separated from the sleek island and dining area, sitting down to eat must feel particularly luxurious, as the work done to provide such a meal experience is hidden behind a dividing wall.
This is all without mentioning a bedroom suited to an urban royal, with windows that match those in the living room and ceilings that soar high overhead, plus bathrooms that look like they were carved directly out of glass and marble. Even the office, studious as it may be, provides distracting city views and holds within itself an air of importance that alludes to only the most prestige of contracts being signed there. And, of course, we can't not mention the stairs. Futuristic and floating, the ascending structure can (and will!) glow purple, when the mood strikes.
Meanwhile, location-wise, the penthouse could have sold itself. Nestled below the intersection of Lakeshore West and Bathurst, there isn't a desire this buyer isn't about to have at their fingertips.
The lake, parks, downtown's bustling energy, plus the offerings of both King and Queen West are only steps from the front door of this condo building. Serving as a place to play (when such activities are back on the table), stackt market -- with its beer and eats and local purveyors -- is mere minutes north of the address.

And, in addition to the top-tier neighbourhood, the unit's 2,200 square-feet of pure luxury are finished with a large terrace, which looks to both the lake and the CN Tower. This private outdoor space serves as the ideal environment for hosting, when at-home gatherings become a thing of the present yet again.
Without a doubt, this home's recent buyer is, upon move-in day, going to be a happy camper. Rockin' and a rollin', you might say. Let's just hope they have the right business card to match...
