Looking at the calm, bright yellow exterior of Metro Vancouver’s most expensive house, you almost forget about its $28 million price tag – almost.
Built in 2011, this West Vancouver mansion looks just like a European villa complete with seven bedrooms, six designer bathrooms, an ocean-view veranda, plus an indoor/outdoor pool.
There’s also a self-contained nanny quarter for extra help to keep an eye on any kids running around the 2.3 acre estate.
Its eight-figure asking price also qualifies it as Canada’s most expensive house currently on the market for the second month in a row.
Since the property was first listed in January, the mansion has remained unclaimed in the country’s most expensive real estate market.
For most people – unless you’ve just won the $63.4 million Lotto 6/49 jackpot or happened to inherit a large fortune – this West Coast mansion is likely out of reach. It makes for great real estate eye candy, but may not be a pragmatic choice for the average homebuyer with an average income.
Vancouver's real estate market continues to lead the country as the most expensive for average first-time homebuyers, according to data released by the Bank of Montreal last week.
Homebuyers in Vancouver are expected to spend $443,000 on average for their first house, while those prospecting in Toronto are paying nearly $100,000 less.
