Location: Beijing, China
Price: CNY75 million (US$14.7 million)
Once a nation vehemently closed to the west, China today displays an openness and enthusiasm for the international community that’s most clearly reflected in its rambling metropolises. Beijing, in particular, has become an exemplary symbol of this modernization with a boom of new shopping, dining, and cultural opportunities that cater to both residents and visitors. In no place is this more palpable than in the district of Chaoyang, where much of the city’s embassies, luxury hotels and Olympic sites reside.
Looking out from the window of “The Palace,” the luxury apartment on Chaoyang Road, onto the angular zigzag of the recently built China Central Television Building, the rapid progress the country has undergone in recent decades can be seen… quite literally.
In keeping with the high modernization of this ancient city, the residence frames its contemporary style with traditional Chinese elements that hearken back to its cultural heritage. Thus, vibrant lacquered wood runs throughout the residence in pops of red highlighted by marble and textured walls with gold and silver accents and intricate detailing. At the same time, the residence boasts ornate chandeliers, recessed lighting, a sleek kitchen and large windows that look out onto the vast, ever-changing Beijing skyline.
The 4,058-square-foot apartment has three-bedrooms and two-and-a-half bathrooms.
Unique for such a busy city, the residence includes access to a quaint semi-enclosed garden that offers moments of peace away from the vibrant city that surrounds it. Meanwhile, the residence has a bar with a marble countertop, and a large walk-in-closet with a display case for clothing.
The surrounding neighborhood offers a plethora of shopping opportunities, restaurants, and cultural venues for residents and visitors alike. Perhaps unsurprisingly, the high concentration of embassies and hotels in the district mean it’s also a favorite of expats and foreigners, who can often be found enjoying a drink or meal in the long “bar street,” Sanlitun. Additionally, the district is also home to the Olympic Green: the “Bird’s Nest” stadium, the National Aquatics Center, the Olympic village, and the Olympic Observation Tower.
