If you’re tired of the “Vancouver Specials,” or cookie-cutter Yaletown condos when it comes to real estate options in Metro Vancouver, then this unique piece of property might be just the place for you.

Listed by Remax, and located at 39623 Old Yale Road in Abbotsford, the $3.75 million property is a luxury restoration of an old BC Electric substation.

The original substation was built in 1906 of concrete, steel and brick by BC Electric Corporation.

It sits on a 2.35-acre property with a 30-acre greenbelt forest.

Nowadays, the substation-turned-luxury home features eight bedrooms, eight bathrooms, as well as two large lofts.

If you still need further enticing, there’s also a theatre room, five kitchens, large living and dining area that are more than suitable for entertaining with four large balconies.

So if it’s time to make your way out of the city to a one-of-a-kind place to call your own, this might be the place for you.

Oh, and in case you were wondering what kind of energy and power an old electric substation uses, the home in this case uses Electric, “Forced Air,” and Natural Gas.
