View to perfection in Kennedy Road
LUXURIOUS, convenient and well appointed, Regent on the Park is situated on leafy Kennedy Road, a pleasant walk to Pacific Place.
The hall with a marble entrance leads through an archway to the lift lobby.
A smooth ride to the 33rd floor in the sky lift gives visitors a taste of what to expect - brilliant views.
The agent, Chesterton Petty, said that such a high floor unit was rarely on the market.
To the right of the large living room and dining area is a green view of a mountain; to the left, a spectacular open view of the city stretching across the harbour to Kowloon.
The living room window is floor-to-ceiling with a wide central panel and forms a bay window on one side allowing for a wide-angled view.
In the immediate foreground is the Hotel Conrad and Pacific Place, with the bigger picture taking in the harbour beyond and running the full sweep of Causeway Bay, Happy Valley and the mountain behind Kennedy Road.
It is even possible to watch the planes taking off and landing at Kai Tak.
At the opposite end of the room, the dining area, with its deep bay window, reveals a peaceful green view of Bowen Road and the Peak. It is easy to see why so few of the apartments in the block have curtains.
The master bedroom shares a cross-harbour view similar to that of the living area. This is reflected in the sliding-mirror doors of the built-in wardrobe, which makes the room seem twice as large.
Beige marble surfaces and dusty-pink floor tiles make an inviting en suite bathroom.
Adjacent to the living area and next to master bedroom is a nursery, which is also fitted with built-in wardrobes.
On the opposite side of the corridor is the second bedroom, which has a deep bay window showing the green panorama of the mountain and the family bathroom with its smart beige fixtures and tiles.
The kitchen-cum-breakfast room has white cross-hatched tiles and opens on to a utility area with ample room for the washing machine and dryer. A maid's room also adjoins the kitchen.
The property has central air-conditioning.
Regent on the Park is about nine years old and the apartment is on sale for $29.5 million.
Residents enjoy automatic membership of the private club with sports facilities, which include a fabulous indoor pool.
