Home to the wealthier and more luxurious residences in Vasiliádon, the southern quarter of the inner circle of the city is home to the royal and noble families, close to the sea and in view of beautiful sunsets dipping below the horizon.

The palace of Vasiliádon is the crowning jewel of an already beautiful city. Taking advantage of the smooth land of the island, the palace occupies a huge square foot area, with shallow pools and columned promenades in white marble. Against the temperate and balmy blue sky, it really is a palace of dreams, and is home to the currently ruling noble family.
Instead of a huge, stuffy hall in which to negotiate, the politicians of Vasiliádon prefer to practice their debate and bluster in an open arena forum. The structure sits in the centre of a long spiral pathway. The creator argued that his design was deliberate - in order to give the men plenty of time to consider their points and remove all emotion from their arguments, before arriving at the Arcus itself.
The second manor Condos offers a hint of the beauty that the primary homestead is so famous for. The original manor of Condos in their home province of Doralis is large and almost feminine in its beauty. The second, that they occupy when in the capitol is just as so, but on a slightly small scale; designed to offer the lavish and elegant comforts of home, while also whetting the appetites of any guest that visits who may be curious as to the great beauty that awaits any traveller to Doralis.
The Dimitrou manor in Vasiliadon is kept as such more for the fact that it is required than because the family need a second home. Their original archontiko back in Meganea is home enough for all of them, barring Lord Iason who keeps his own in Chaoedia. As such, the manor is functional, immaculately clean and offers the basic, yet well crafted, essentials that any noble family would require. It's not designed to be a home that impresses or entertains, and is probably the royal home least in use within Vasiliadon.
The Leventi estate lies on the very outside edge of the Vasiliadon city walls. With acres of land out behind it, the estate offers two manors that are often in almost constant use. While other royal families live most of their lives in their own provinces and use their capitol manors as a means of habitation when business calls them to the city, Leventi operate their business from within the capitol's walls and keep their interests close at hand...
The Mikaelidas family were not always the ruling house of Taengea and, as such, retain their original House Manor, prior to the royal palace becoming their new home and being renamed the Mikaelidas Palati. This manor is now occupied by Lord Irakles. His wife Myrto lives in a separated wing of the manor whilst Irakles has instated his mistress Lady Meena under his more immediate roof. This Mikaelidas manor is under the direct management and control of the Head of the Mikaelidas House.
Music and the arts are incredibly important to the Taengeans and, as such, their capital holds the greatest music and arts school in the known realms. Located in the wealthier area of the capital city, the school is exclusive and only open to those who can pay a high tuition for the privilege of attending.
