Back in the day—1907, more specifically—Vancouverites lined up to purchase empty lots in a brand-new neighbourhood, listed for sale for the reasonable price of $3,700 for three full lots.Today, that neighbourhood is known as Shaughnessy, and it's safe to say property values have risen pretty significantly since then.
Case in point, this "stately stone-clad manor," situated on a sweeping corner lot in the high-profile enclave. It was recently listed on REW for a not-quite-as-attainable $19.8 million.
The seven-bedroom, seven-bath home clocks in at more than 8,600 square feet, and sits on a 14762-square-foot lot. Built in 2017, the property was designed by Vancouver-based architectural firm Formwerks, with interiors conceptualized by HB Design.
When it comes to those interiors, the designers worked to "pair traditional influences with a rich contemporary material palette"—think lots of neutral colours, bright walls, dark metal and wood accents and clean lines.
The home also offers a ton of amenities aside from the aesthetics, including a state-of-the-art fitness studio, a climate-controlled wine cellar that accommodates 1000 bottles, an outdoor kitchen and fireplace, and, last but not least, a stunning zero-edge pool surrounded by landscaped gardens. Sounds like an ideal place to sit and drink all of that wine all summer long, if you ask us.
The property, conveniently located 10 minutes from Downtown and 15 minutes from the airport, also holds a laneway home that's perfect for hosting all of the guests this property is sure to attract post-pandemic.
