AREAA Vancouver Investment Summit – A Luxury Properties tour.

Mayfair_Exterior_Arch3-605x468

Last week I participated in a Vacouver Luxury Properties Tour in which we toured several properties valued from $9-$22million all put together by the AREAA- Vancouver Chapter and Luxury Homes.
As expected, most of these properties were situated in West Vancouver and the British Properties.
One of the homes that stood out for me was the 22m home in Shaunessy, not because of the breathtaking beauty of it but because of my recognition that in Vancouver, we have grown accustomed and immune to stratospheric home pricing.

House #1 (Pictured above)
130 x 190 foot property 10,000 square foot home 4 Bedrooms 6.5 Bathrooms Taxes: $26,481.03 (2012) Asking Price: $22,800,000
Nestled in the heart of Vancouver’s historic Shaughnessy neighbourhood offering unmatched access to the city’s best amenities & education institutions, The Mayfair is west coast luxury at its finest, a celebration of artistic brilliance, state-of-the-art technology & astounding detail. The Mayfair blends classical Tudor Architecture with touches of Art Deco, original artisan highlights & the very latest conveniences. An absolutely stunning 4 bedroom, 6.5 bathroom estate home on a spectacular 24,700 S.F., resort-style property complete with gorgeous botanical garden, pool, hot tub, cabana, outdoor kitchen & dining terrace – even your own putting green.

This was a home that desite its size and allusions to grandeur, was family friendly and cosy and happy. All in all, usually a very difficult effect to acheive in homes that size but this one did.
