Itâ€™s no secret some of the most beautiful and expensive houses are located in West Vancouver, where scenic roads reveal magical views of the ocean, downtown, and the Lionâ€™s Gate Bridge.
The public rarely gets access to these exclusive homes, but we got an eye-popping tour of one British Properties stunner and its incredible 20,000 sq.-ft. Japanese garden.
Previously featured on a Vancouver Museum modern home tour, the Eyremount Drive compound includes two swimming pools, a waterfall, guest/pool house, cabana, pergola, and numerous private sitting areas throughout the park-like setting.
But the Japanese design and creek are the real show-stoppers.
The greenery and flowers were planted in sequence so that colours continue to blossom through the seasons, explained real estate agent Aimee Middleton, who has the property listed for $4.9 million.
Special rocks were strategically placed along the creekâ€™s stream to produce different sounds and tones as the water cascades down, producing a soothing ambiance.
Built in 1957 and fully renovated in 2005, the 4,036 sq.-ft. house is filled with treasures and details such as custom liquor cabinets, handmade faucet knobs, handmade tiles imported from Japan, and a custom, sunken walk-in shower.
But who needs to stay indoors when youâ€™ve got a garden like this?
