An iconic Vancouver estate owned by Canadian philanthropist Joeseph Segal has been put up for sale, and if you have $63 million laying around the property could be all yours.
The custom-commissioned and designed 21,977 ft² Belmont Estate is situated on 1.28 acres; and at a cool $63 million, its list price sets a new record for Vancouver realty.
The property overlooks amazing ocean views of Spanish Banks, the Strait of Georgia, West Vancouver, Downtown Vancouver, and the North Shore Mountains.
The estate’s design was inspired by the French gardens of Versailles and has a massive three-level garden.
With five bedrooms, 12 bathrooms, an elevator, pool, sauna, six-car garage, you really can’t go wrong with this place.
“Belmont Estate represents a rare opportunity to own a residence that is iconic to Vancouver and British Columbia, on one of the most prestigious streets in Canada,” said Christa Frosch, listing agent with Sotheby’s International Realty Canada.
“No other property of comparison has been offered in Greater Vancouver to date; the fact that its long-standing owners are beloved in our community for their philanthropic dedication to the City of Vancouver only adds to the home’s heritage. I believe that the buyer of this home will have a passion for art, history, luxurious landscapes and timeless design.”
Joe Segal and his wife Rosalie are well known in BC for their philanthropy and entrepreneurial ventures.
Segal’s business ventures include Zellers and the Bay. They have made significant donations to various charities and organizations in Canada.
