Impressive corporate suite? Lush live-work pied a terre? Ingeniously convenient full-sized downtown home? Or will you see simply a value-savvy investment, timed just ahead of 2018's new subway and hotel investments driving West Downtown's renaissance.

Consider the setting – a prime location close to Parliament Hill. Stellar site lines led legendary developer William Terron to select this showpiece site. Terron – best known for creating Kanata and Toronto's Harbourfront – took maximum advantage of the site's elevation to afford 151 Bay its long parkland views.

Bill Terron's passion for livability defines the project's layout. A curved entry courtyard is surrounded by an oasis of lush green landscaped terraces. It's a pleasure to arrive here. The extensive use of natural-toned brick ties the building to the city's vernacular and accentuates a warm natural ambiance.

Rather than straight condominium hallways, common areas here are designed with generous lounge seating. A concave façade varies each home's point of view and creates shaped spaces. Boring rectangles are banished by huge bay windows and shaped balconies.

Entering this fabulous 2600 sq. ft home your first impression will be of light. Gradually you'll realize you've stepped inside a glamorous art deco-inspired work of art. The entire home is a "spare-no-expense" decorative masterpiece – conceived by famed interior designer Marcel Brunet. It's part Golden Age Hollywood, part 1980's Miami. You'll smile, imagining the pleasure your interior designer will have updating this ingenious creative canvas.

Notice the reception area's marble floors. Entry highlights include authoritative brass hardware; and a glazed mirrored beveled glass French-door closet. A "wow at first sight" crystal entry chandelier, set in a mirrored ceiling recess impresses.

Walk into the living dining areas through a wide, welcoming hallway. Again your first impression will be of light and space – all accentuated by the strategic use of mirrors and custom lighting.

The quality kitchen is warm and practical – a semi enclosed space with an open half-wall. Natural blonde hardwood cabinets complement contrasting black granite countertops. Notice the beveled edge - a 'quality-first' theme here. Less obvious – the kick-plate drawers that add to kitchen storage. Flooring is custom crafted marble .

The formal dining space is elegant and generous, easily seating eight or more . The adjoining formal living room takes full advantage of bayed windows to deliver a relaxed modern feeling, bathed in natural light. Outstanding views of the lovely Christ Church Cathedral and the Ottawa River parkland reward. A huge corner balcony provides a retreat with a view.

Take the discrete hallway near the dining room to discover a jewel of this great space. It's a light-filled, very private office. Across the hall – a full bathroom in granite and tile - which also serves as a powder room.

Beyond, double doors reveal an expansive guest suite with private bathroom. Corner windows bring in light from two sides. Details astound: custom teak molding, huge custom bed with inset headboard lighting. A walk-in closet takes "guest" to the next level.

Off the reception hall, French doors open on a dazzling party room space. There's a wet bar, plus enough space to make the room's white grand piano seem "petite". Designer Brunet used light to maximize the celebratory mood -with classic recessed down lighting and exotic illuminated crown molding plus a mirrored recessed ceiling. It's a show stopper, with a full wall of windows and doors to the enormous 27'x 9' entertainment–ready balcony. Fabulous deco custom glass block walls and fluted Roman columns hold the exotic mood. It's cool – and beyond! At today's prices this room would cost a fortune to recreate. You'll want to preserve its glamour with strategic updates.

Russian oligarchs, and playboy princes take note: this master suite is pure personal indulgence. Reach this room along an elegant shaped hallway flooded with natural light. You won't notice the playfully concealed secret cabinets here. That's why they're secret. One can only guess what treasures the original occupants sought to hide.

Step up to this raised master bedroom. Brunet's design language is in overdrive with a massive custom bed plus walls of built in drawers and media cabinetry, illuminated custom crown moldings and an unabashedly ostentatious vanity. The walk in closet is celebrity ready too.

The adjoining master ensuite was conceived as a marble pleasure palace, sparkling with glass block walls, and illuminated moldings. More champagne? You'll never be lonely in this three-person tub, set in palatial marble. A curved marble shower with brass body jets soothes.

Again, think practically about this location. There's a full sized and updated pool. Same floor laundry and double storage are ultra convenient. You have three indoor parking spaces. Bike paths, parks and walk-to cultural attractions are yours. Neighboring bistros and restaurants await. You'll never find a better value. But hurry. Plan your personal viewing adventure today.
