Boasting over 1,000 square feet of interior living space, this upscale condominium unit offers a fantastic opportunity for ownership in "the Villagio Kensington" – a SAM Award-Winning upscale collection of stately boutique condos located in the heart of Calgary's prestigious Kensington community.

The Villagio Kensington condos are a unique Calgary landmark, utilizing insulated concrete form technology. The building was built using large slabs of concrete layered with polystyrene insulation, and it became a leader in concrete construction for Western Canada. This design allows for superior energy efficiency, soundproofing and an extremely fire-safe design, ensuring all residents' and visitors' safety and comfort.

One of just four units on the 2nd floor of this 12-unit concrete masterpiece, this executive condo features plentiful windows, allowing for abundant natural light. Boasting 2 large bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms, and an underground parking stall with an extra storage locker, this is a fantastic opportunity to acquire a generously sized property in a high-end, well-maintained building. 

Step into a world of sophistication as you enter this thoughtfully designed home. Gorgeous real cherrywood floors grace the entry, creating a warm and inviting atmosphere. The formal front entrance features large built-ins, offering a modern storage solution for coats, shoes, and extras, setting the tone for the meticulous attention to detail. To the right, a convenient 4-piece bathroom with tiled flooring and a fully tiled tub/shower combo awaits, providing both style and functionality.

The heart of this residence is the stunning kitchen, a culinary haven that boasts an impressive U-shaped design bordered by ample beautiful, full-height modern cabinets. It also boasts granite counters, a complete stainless steel appliance package including a 5-burner gas stove and a fridge with ice/water maker, and a large central island overlooking the living room and dining area, providing plenty of space for bar seating and easy entertaining.

An open and inviting layout seamlessly connects the dining area to the spacious living room. The dedicated dining area, bathed in light from French doors leading to a private balcony with a gas line for BBQ, sets the scene for relaxed gatherings and warm summer nights of grilling. The spacious living room with a built-in entertainment center is the focal point, matching the custom furniture throughout the home. This area is designed for cozy evenings with family, with bookshelves, a nook for the television, and a warm, natural gas fireplace.

Adjacent to the living area is a bonus space surrounded by beautiful bay windows. This space offers versatility as an office or a reading/sitting nook. Light spills in from every angle, enhancing the overall sense of openness and brightness.

Discover the bedrooms at the end of the home – a primary retreat that combines beauty and functionality. This space exudes ambiance with an entire wall of matching built-in closets, coffered ceilings, and recessed lighting. The 5-piece ensuite is a spacious and airy sanctuary, featuring tiled flooring with in-floor heating, a large vanity with storage, a tiled stand-up shower with a rainfall shower head and glass enclosure, and a perfectly sized drop-in soaker tub for relaxation after a long day.

The second bedroom, ideal for kids or overnight guests, features matching built-in storage and is kept bright and cheery with a large window.

Completing this upscale condo is the in-suite laundry with a full-sized stackable washer/dryer, a recently installed central A/C unit, an underground parking stall in the heated and secure parkade, and a storage locker providing additional space for your belongings. Every detail in this turn-key home reflects a commitment to quality and style.
