If you’ve ever wanted to own a piece of Vancouver’s regal history—and you’ve got a few million dollars to spare—you’re in luck.

The Tudor-style mansion at 1250 W 54th Avenue was once home to former Lieutenant Governor Clarence Wallace. And now it can be yours for $19,800,000.

Up for sale by Rennie’s Christopher Boyd, the magnificent property is located on a 1.06-acre corner lot in South Granville.

When Wallace sold the home to businessman Sonny Wosk for $121,500 around 1960, the sale made headlines as one of the largest real estate deals in Vancouver’s history.

A tennis court, swimming pool, porte-cochère, and circular driveway can be found throughout the sprawling property.

Devonia “retains a stateliness that appealed to the governors and moguls counted among the previous owners,” Boyd said.
