Sure, everybody agrees “location, location, location” is everything in the real estate world. But I’d like to add the caveat: with a view. It’s not always the case that a home features both, but this listing, in Vancouver’s newest luxury condominium, One Burrard Place, is giving Michelle and Barack Obama-level power-couple energy with its combo of great locale (straddling downtown and English Bay in the West End) and jaw-dropping 270-degree panoramic vistas (soak in English Bay, False Creek, the North Shore mountains and the vast horizon with one spin).

How is this possible? Just the physics of being the corner suite of the third-tallest building in Vancouver. (The top neck-craner is Living Shangri-La, in case you were wondering). Suddenly the $3,525,000 price tag makes a little more sense: a bargain, really, when you consider the 24-hour Pay-Per-View windows that come with it.

This condo might have the best view in the city

With looks that could kill (I can’t get over these views, honestly), this condo listing is also dressed to impress with furnishings and decor from Inform Interiors, who have infused a dreamy and sleek sophistication to every 1,687 square foot of this space. My if-I-win-the-lottery-despite-not-ever-buying-a-ticket future home is spatially limited, like most Vancouver listings, but it more than makes up for it with its open-concept living design ethos. That, combined with its impressive 9’3” ceilings and floor-to-ceiling windows (that sometimes are more window than wall—let’s call them “walldows”), opens up the concept to include the entire sky.

During the day, you’ll never have to turn a light on with the amount of natural light pouring in (but I guess you’ll ultimately offset any electricity bill savings with Windex costs).

Marble and wood wall accents in this $3.5 million dollar home

The custom millwork in this sophisticated West End apartment is extensive and notable, particularly the feature entry wall that continues into the great room. Another wall achievement: the marble stone slab wall in one of the two bathrooms.

The bathrooms are exceptionally stylish, with Zucchetti wall-mount faucets and a signature pedestal sink from Antonio Lupi Corian in the powder room. The primary ensuite features Italian-designed vanities, an enclosed water closet and a smoked-glass shower enclosure.

Hardwood flooring flows throughout; in the kitchen, find Miton cabinetry, a Caesarstone waterfall island in the kitchen. If you can take a break from staring out the window for a minute, you’ll find an Italian Kiko wardrobe system in the bedroom.

If you do decide to leave your apartment (but why would you?), One Burrard Place has a 30,000-square-foot recreational “Club One” that includes a full-length lap pool, indoor/outdoor yoga areas, a wine-tasting room, a personal shopping salon and a children’s playroom.

This home is as stunning on the outside as it is on the inside and a perfect place to entertain: the floor plan maximizes the living and kitchen area and take advantage of the knockout views. Somebody needs to buy this place and invite me to the housewarming party so I can see this view firsthand.
