Real estate portal Point2 Homes has released a list of the most expensive homes in Canada, with properties in BC, Ontario and Alberta all making the cut.

To compile the annual list, researchers mined the Point2 Homes’ database, as well as other national portals and brokerages’ listings, according to spokesperson Cristina Jisa.

Topping the resulting list is a palatial estate in Vancouver, listed at a total of $63 million, complete with gardens inspired by the Palace of Versailles.

If that’s a little too steep for you, how about the last house on the list, another Vancouver residence, set amid old growth forest, listed at a bargain $25 million?

Here’s the full list for you to enjoy:

Belmont Estate, Vancouver, BC – $63 million

Situated on 1.28 acres, this custom-designed 21,977 square-foot property is the family home of billionaire Canadian philanthropists Joseph and Rosalie Segal.

The palatial home features five bedrooms, twelve bathrooms, and three storeys all served by an elevator, as well as a three-tiered garden inspired by the French gardens of Versailles.

It even includes a private Porte-Cochère entry into two gallery halls with seating 100 guests for private concerts, and what we imagine is the sweeping staircase of our dreams.

1238, 1242, 1248 Tecumseh Ave, Vancouver, BC – $46.8 million

Another luxurious property still up for grabs!

This 5.6 acre gated estate set amid old growth forest features a 8,537 sq.ft. mansion, with four bedrooms, five bathrooms, six fireplaces, and a river running right outside.

Oh and one more thing….

Thought that was it? We have one more treat for you. The actual most expensive home for sale in Canada right now is still Chelster Hall.

However, Point2 Homes couldn’t include it in their list, because they did not receive permission from the brokerage managing its sale to include it on their list.

We thought we’d include it here though, in case you have an extra $65 million to spare:

Chelster Hall, Oakville, ON – $65 million

Chelster Hall, Oakville (Christopher Invidiata)

This “modern-day castle” has been on the market for a while, and was previously featured in a list of expensive properties earlier this year.

It was built by Hugo Powell for his family, inspired by a real-life English estate hundreds of years old. However, after a decade living there, it’s time to sell.

Chelster Hall offers a main home covering 39,000 sq.ft. with six bedrooms and eight bathrooms, as well as a gate house, lakeside house, and chapel on a lot of 10.3 acres.

Also for your enjoyment, a two-storey library, an indoor and outdoor swimming pool, a bowling alley, a home theatre, a state-of-the-art wine cellar, a sauna, and heated floors.

Still worth every cent, we reckon!
