A wondrous of piece of elegance nestled in an urban setting – this in a nutshell describes the Elysium Penthouse, a full fledged condo situated in Yaletown, Vancouver. In Greek mythology, Elysium was a state of afterlife where only heroes and demi-gods could gain admission and live out their blessed and happy ‘life’. Symbolizing this state of luxuriance and bountifulness, the penthouse is surely a landmark for opulent living. In terms of structure, the building exhibits three separate levels that extend functionally as seven accessible terraces. These are complemented by exquisite architectural elements like vaulted cathedral ceilings and a fabulous 360 degree view of surrounding mountains and ocean offered from the main attic floor.
Coming to the interiors of the 4,718 sq ft Elysium Penthouse, the piece de resistance would surely be the aforementioned attic floor that comprises of the master bedroom, en suite private elevator and the adjacent bathroom. This spatial expanse is accompanied by a private foyer that has two additional elevator lifts. The details of high end craftsmanship are prevalent through the porcelain floors, exotic Mozambique mill work and a lavish meeting gallery.
The Elysium Penthouse also boasts of its fair share of technological features, which include – climate controlled wine storage area (crafted from glass), Gaggenau appliances, geothermal heating, smart air-conditioning, ethanol fire places and a security system (with bio-metric fingerprint recognition). Finally, these advanced albeit ritzy attributes are bolstered by host of utility zones like a concierge, indoor/outdoor pool and spa fitness facility.
