Former Lululemon CEO Chip Wilson's new waterfront home in Vancouver is the most expensive house in British Columbia, according to figures released by B.C. Assessment today.
The yoga pants palace, which took five years to construct on three waterfront lots in the city's Kitsilano neighbourhood, took over the top spot with a value of $54 million, after construction was completed.
And despite property values dropping an average of five per cent across the province, the top ten priciest abodes in B.C. all exceeded $20 million each by a comfortable margin.
1. 3085 Point Grey Rd., Vancouver – $54,206,000
Last year, Wilson's 30,600-square-foot Point Grey residence was under construction and number two on this list. The two-storey house was custom built in 2008 with seven bedrooms and nine bathrooms.
