Sounds like you would want a steady cam or gimbal with the operator on the front of a vehicle that can follow the actor while walking and biking then step off and move with him up the stairs.  Doesn't sound like there are any chances to hide cuts in the wide open like that.

Following the walker / biker could be done with Steadicam / gimbal operator on the nose of a camera car, but to rise up to a second floor balcony would require the operator to step up onto a crane, so unless you can frame out the crane parked in front of the house by the terrace so that the operator can back onto it, you might have to find a way to hide a cut.

Or maybe shoot this with a drone.

Ah didnt realize you had to raise up, then yes a drone would be your best bet here since it will allow the camera to travel up with out a crane etc.  Semi long lens would be helpful just to give you some buffer from the actor.  Will you need location sound at all?
