Rich in history and star power, a spectacular New Westminster mansion just hit the market for $2,198,000.
The basement of the 132-year-old Queen Anne-style mansion served as a speakeasy during the prohibition era.
Called “Breezehurst,” the home has four bedrooms, three bathrooms, and five fireplaces within its 5,363 square-feet of living space.
The master bedroom features the original wallpaper from when the house was built in 1889.
The grandeur of the wrap-around veranda is rivaled by the foyer’s soaring 22-foot ceilings, polished woodwork, and stained glass windows.
On the main floor you’ll find a formal living room, dining room, billiard room, and light-filled conservatory.
The spacious kitchen includes a commercial-grade gas range, large centre island, and granite countertops.
Outdoor space and nature abound – in addition to the sweeping backyard, Queen’s Park is just steps away. A second-floor porch offers views of Mount Baker in the distance.
The breathtaking Breezehurst offers rich history within its walls while still providing modern upgrades.
