It may be bounded by the Roaring Twenties’ charm of the restored Hotel Georgia, but the Private Residences at Hotel Georgia are all about achingly chic modernity and state-of-the-art sustainability that includes high-efficiency heating and cooling systems and photovoltaic cells that contribute power to common areas.
From the lobby’s expansive Swarovski chandelier to the home’s clean-lined interior by award-winning Mitchell Freedland Design, the recently-completed 48-storey Private Residences at Hotel Georgia are described as a “legacy landmark” by listing agent Yvonne Drinovz.
Take one of three dedicated high-speed residential elevators to the sub-penthouse floor where this four-bedroom suite’s floor-to-ceiling windows showcase a 270-degree view over its surrounding downtown environs (in this prime location, it scores a nearly perfect Walk Score ranking) as well as the Pacific Ocean and Mount Baker.
The newly-decorated home gleams with custom oak cabinetry, polished quartz countertops and marble floors. With bedrooms on either side, the open-concept living area provides a central focus with a gourmet kitchen resplendent with superior appliances including a built-in coffee maker, cup-warming drawer, wine fridge, and dining and living rooms separated by a double-sided fireplace. A windowed den—albeit with distracting views—doubles as an office space.
With a predominantly southwest- and east-facing exposure, sun shades help control how much natural light hits home. Wake up to ocean vistas across to Vancouver Island from the master bedroom, or lie in bed and watch the sun set before movie time in the private media room. If late-night guests turn up, a private bedroom complete with its own entry will ensure the rest of the household remain undisturbed.
And, as the name suggests, privileged hotel services such as valet parking, spa treatments, maid service, fine dining and 24-hour concierge are all just a dial away.
