Sunday, 04 January 2009

elite apartmentsNo wonder that a lot of people purchase elite apartments abroad: it is much more fun to stay in your own dwelling than at a hotel, even a luxurious one. There is a huge selection of exclusive residences in the world, and making the right choice is not easy, but we will provide you with information about the most refined, elite and comfortable apartments!

1. Century City has been the American millionaires' dream. This commercial and residential area in Los Angeles has long ago become the choice that wealthy people of all nationalities make looking for a second home. Its history began 50 years ago, when there was a need for "20th Century Fox" film studio and film production. A vacant site was found, and the construction began. "Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer" followed, and later luxurious hotels and business centres popped up. Thus, Los Angeles got its new exclusive district. The consruction has never stopped. Every year more appartment buildings are added to the Century City, and the day is coming when not every millionaire will be able to afford an appartment here. Century Tower appartments have made a real sensation and have caused estate buyers' madness. There are exclusive penthouses and well developed infrastructure with private schools and clinics, spa centres with swimming pools and running paths on the roof, designers' boutiques and supermarkets on the ground floor. This hi-tech building has become a pearl of Century City, and one can be staying at the most expensive Century Plaza Hotel in California for several years for the price of an apartment there which varies from $3 mln to $30 mln.

2. Madison residence: Palaces under Dubai sun. Dubailand, which is known as Arab Manhattan, continues to astonish by the height of its buildings.

It sits away from the main Dubailand in the Emirates Road, in a quiet environment but with all conveniences of civilization: there is a park zone, sport areas, art gallery (where lectures in arts are available), a theater, Spa and fitness centers, swimming pools, multibrand boutiques and up-scale restaurants. The Madison Residence complex consists of several 4-storeyed western style buildings with elements of Oriental decor: fountains, carved marble ceilings, balustrades and Arab moldings. Each house has small apartments with elegant interiors and exclusive spacious apartments with studios, several bathrooms and bedrooms. The proximity to the Jebel Ali airport (just 10 minutes of driving) is another Madison Residence advantage. Prices start from 195,000 British pounds.

3. "Egadi": houses in the Italian Eden. When one hears "Italian real estate", the mind readily pictures villas and castles, but elite apartments are also in great demand in this country. More often they are not skyscrapers with hundreds of apartments, but small cottages (townhouses) with a fewl apartments. This is exactly how the Egadi Residence is laid out. It was built in Calabria, on the Ionian sea shore. One glance is enough to fall in love with the local beauties: snow-white houses with transparent walls in the greenery of gardens, Scvilache bay view from the balcony, and sweet-scented bougenvilles flourishing everywhere. Besides being convenient (the newest technology, several bedrooms and bathrooms), life in Egadi Residence is also full of entertainment with bars, restaurants, and seasonal national festivals. Prices start from 238,000 Euros.

4. Alden Residence III: Turkish luxury. Alden Residence III recently built in Alania at the Meditterranean sea shore, will draw a lot of beach and Oriental fans: indeed, window s of any apartment have a picturesque sea view (there are 144 apartments in each of four 12-storeyed residential buildings). By the way, standard apartments in Alden Residence III only have two balconies, while penthouses have a terrace instead of several balconies! There is no place for boredom in those spacious rooms with marble floors and built-in cooking equipment in the kitchen, and otside there are swimming pools, sauna, tennis courts, a fitness center, a fascinating garden and plenty of eateries serving local and western food. Not to mention safety - a twenty-four hour patrol is on guard. Furthermore, there is 24/7 video recording of everything on the premises, and an additional guard watches the parking lot. The beach across the road is only for residents and their guests. Prices start from 110,000 Euros.

5. Aleph Residence: Argentinean surprise by Foster. A famous British architect Norman Foster is building the most expensive residential complex in Argentina, and 30% of its unfinished apartments have been already sold to foreign millionaires! The foundation for Aleph Residence is laid in the prestigious region of Buenos Aires. It is supposed to be a Gothic 9-storeyed building with 57 apartments. The complex will be surrounded with gardens, swimming pools and restaurants, and its ground floor will accomodate a Luis Borges cultural centre (his novel gave the name to the residence). Architectural details have been kept in secret, but, no doubt, it will be only available to those chosen ones. Prices start from $6,000 per sq.m.

As you see, life is great not only in a presidential suite or an elegant villa, but on the balcony of your own apartment as well!
