"Presidio is impressive (pure craftsmanship and 360° views would be worth maybe even double in New York on Central Park)"

- billionaire visitor from Asia 

Stepping off one of two elevator banks servicing this prestigious residence designed by award-winning architect Richard Henriquez you will immediately recognize the level of craftsmanship and detail that defines this spectacular home.  Push through the custom built, three inch thick leaded glass doors, and your time here truly begins.  Moving from the foyer you are greeted with one of the most breathtakingly beautiful sunsets in the world filling one of two great rooms with soft golden light.

Gently tapping the touch screen controls the Lutron Lighting system which comes alive and fills your entire home with the sound of your favorite music.  As the sun finally drops into the sea, you turn towards the kitchen and walk across the honed marble floors gently warmed by the hot water in-floor radiant heating with seven individual control zones.

The kitchen itself features premium quality, commercial grade stainless steel appliances including two Sub-Zero refrigerators, two Viking Professional Dishwashers and a full size, dual-oven, commercial grade Viking Professional range and custom built stainless steel range hood.  There is of course, much more, including four Sub-Zero wine coolers and a custom red wine cabinet designed to hold up to 600 bottles.  Continuing through the kitchen, three inch thick Terrazzo stone counters and island lead you into an intimate home theatre with the heart of the home's integrated audio visual system.

Leaving the kitchen, it is impossible not to admire the brushed steel floating staircase leading upstairs.

But first, the master bedroom, a room that is truly a masterpiece.  The room itself is flanked by both a sunrise and sunset side verandas that make up only a small part of this home's 1300+ square feet of outdoor living space.

The master ensuite is a study in forethought and elegance.  The walls gently arc around a double-wide sink, heated towel racks and fabulous custom art glass shower room with two massive overhead rainshower heads and a completely private toilet.  Even in the shower, it is impossible to escape the stunning views found in every corner of this world class home.

Heading upstairs, the attention to detail invested into this home continues to astound.  The limed oak walls and marble pillars follow you into the second and larger great room encased in commercial grade floor-to-ceiling windows revealing unparalleled views of the majestic North Shore Mountains and Stanley Park, one of the world's few true urban gems - a 1000 acre of trails, sandy beaches, hidden lagoons, old growth trees, playing fields, tennis courts and a delightful 9 hole par-3 golf course.  Without a doubt, this spectacular residence offers the subtleties of West Coast living at their absolute finest.

Tearing yourself from the views, the living space flows freely through a fully featured wet-bar and second bedroom that would rival most master bedrooms found in most of Vancouver's most desirable homes.  The ensuite captures many of the same architectural details found in the master ensuite including the art glass shower walls and free standing sink.  This room also boasts large walk-past closets and direct access to the huge south facing patio, complete with a fully featured stainless steel kitchen, built in barbeque and heaters and elevated lounge area.

One of the many secrets of this immaculate home can be found on the equally impressive north facing patio.  Here you will find an Infinity hot-tub designed to reach a sultry 114 degrees before the ice in your drink melts.  And finally, tucked away in the North east corner is a large, truly private and completely detached oval office wired and ready to meet the needs of the most demanding business person.  The Presidio Penthouse at Stanley Park is unquestionably one of the most exclusive residences in Canada and possibly the world: a magnificent home perched on the edge of the magnificent scenery of Vancouver, British Columbia.
