Vancouver is the world’s hottest luxury real estate market, according to a recent report. These 10 pricey homes make it easy to see how it earned that title.
10. 1138 Matthews Avenue — $18,880,000
If you need some extra help around the house, this five-bedroom, five-bathroom home in Vancouver’s Shaughnessy neighbourhood has you covered. Its two-car garage has a self-contained studio above it that’s perfect for a nanny or housekeeper.
9. 1603 Matthews Avenue — $18,980,000
You’ll feel like royalty when you drive up the fully gated circular entranceway to this mansion in Shaughnessy. Situated on 21,588 square feet of landscaped grounds, the home has seven bedrooms and eight and a half bathrooms.
8. 1469 Matthews Avenue — $19,190,000
Another Shaughnessy mansion, this home was built over a century ago in 1912. But don’t let its age deter you — the current owner spent millions to rebuild the home from studs with a new foundation, deeper basement and rainscreened exterior. Other modern additions include a professional home theatre and six-car garage. Talk about a fixer upper.
7. 3241 Point Grey Road — $19,888,000
Looking for a little privacy? This Point Grey property may be just what you’re after. It includes a grandfathered dock with direct access to the beach, and future traffic control measures are expected to keep the neighbourhood quiet. The unobstructed 180-degree ocean views aren’t bad either.
6. 3426 Osler Street — $19,980,000
The entranceway of this Georgian-style manor will let you impress your guests right off the bat with its high ceilings and Slovakia “Bohemian” crystal chandelier. The home, another offering from the Shaughnessy area, also includes a wine cellar and a commercial-grade kitchen.
5. 4619 West 3rd Avenue — $19,980,000
Built in 2012, this four-bedroom, six-bath home is one of the newer houses to make this list, and it’s got all the amenities you might expect. Highlights include an outdoor swimming pool, professional garden and roof deck with mountain, water and city views.
4. 3405 Point Grey Road — $22,500,000
With three decks, a private waterfront patio and floor-to-ceiling windows, this home in Point Grey was built to showcase its location on the water. But if you ever get tired of the outdoors, don’t worry — inside you’ll find a deluxe kitchen, bar and entertainment-size rooms that are “perfect” for hosting large or small parties.
3. 2883 Point Grey Road — $22,988,000
The 9,887.5-square-foot lot that this Point Grey home sits on is a key selling point, billed as an “opportunity to develop a world-class, trophy residence.” But that’s doesn’t mean the house itself isn’t impressive — brought to life by architect Paul Grant and interior designer Robert Ledingham, its unique floorplan makes for some interesting rooms.
2. 3998 Granville Street — $28,800,000
The listing for this luxurious Granville Street house is light on detail, but with both a spacious wine cellar and a basketball court, it seems to have been built with both adults and kids in mind.
1. 4726 Belmont Avenue — $33,800,000
You’ll want to make sure you get the master bedroom in this Point Grey estate — not only does it have two divided walk-in closets, it also includes a gym and a view deck with a firestone fireplace. Outside features include a pool, water fountain, fire pit and eating area.
