This recently expanded and renovated mansion property in Vancouver’s Shaughnessy neighbourhood marries architectural styles from different areas, with the restoration of a 1922-built heritage structure and the construction of a contemporary addition at its rear.
Designed by Airey Group, the luxurious property — 12,413 sq. ft. of living area on a 25,340-sq-ft lot — in the northeast quadrant of the First Shaughnessy area has been listed by Manyee Lui with Macdonald Realty for $44 million.
With the complete rebuild of the heritage structure’s basement and the new rear additions, the property’s living area grew by approximately 33% in size.
There are seven bedrooms, seven full bathrooms, two half bathrooms, and garage space that can park three cars. It features a large dining room — overlooking a koi pond and Japanese garden — that can seat 18 people, as well as an elevator, fitness gym, and a massive entertainment area with a giant liquor cellar, lounge, and oversized aquarium.
Floor-to-ceiling sliding glass walls open up the indoor kitchen area to a covered heated patio, which also has an outdoor restaurant-quality kitchen.
The backyard is complete with a large swimming pool and a self-contained accessory building for guests.
High-quality finishings are used for the high level of detail given to every aspect of the renewed and expanded property’s interior, exterior, and landscaping.
According to BC Assessment, the property’s assessed value as of July 1, 2018, mid-stream during construction, was $9.2 million, with $6.2 million for the land and $3 million for the then-unfinished structures.
