And the master:
Which has a pretty snazzy ensuite:
The unit is one of four penthouses atop the 40-storey Vela at Harbour View Estates tower, built in 2005. In a former life, the place was featured in season 4 of Sarah Richardson’s HGTV show, Design Inc. It’s typically leased to professional athletes, and is currently being repainted and having its marble re-polished in preparation for the next tenant (it becomes available July 1).
As members of the Harbour View Estates “superclub,” tenants have access to 30,000 square feet of amenities, including a gym, massage spa, Olympic-size swimming pool, tennis court, basketball court and bowling lanes. Plus, getting on the Gardiner literally takes less than a minute.
Possible deal breaker
The balcony has a great view and is set for a small barbecue dinner, but at 95 square feet, it’s too cramped for a true party.
