Vancouver Mansion For Sale: $31.9 million

The highest listing price in Metro Vancouver is currently a house at 2190 Camelot in West Vancouver which is on sale for $39.9 million.

High-end homes often take a while to sell, because of the limited buyers who can afford it. In fact, the $31.9-million Shaughnessy home was for sale last year for $17.9 million, but didn’t sell.

Property records list the owners as K. Fan Hiu and H.F. Chi, who purchased the home in April 2004 for $6 million. Ted Wang of Royal Pacific Realty said the couple have decided to downsize to an apartment.Wang said the owners decided to raise the listing price after looking at the high prices mansions are commanding in Shaughnessy. He noted that a house he sold last year on Angus Drive for $5.7 million was recently assessed at $9 million.

The house definitely has some selling points.  For starters, It’s big, with 10,516 sq. ft of space spread over three storeys. There are six bedrooms, eight bathrooms and five fireplaces, along with a wine cellar, a games room, a gym and staff quarters.Naturally, there is a “grand entry, sweeping staircase, massive living room, separate formal dining room, library, coffered ceilings, crown mouldings, panelled den, [and a] gourmet kitchen.” There’s a backyard pool, a koi pond, a greenhouse, and large, beautifully landscaped grounds; the home is on an acre lot.

There are six more Shaughnessy mansions for sale for north of $10 million, including a 10-bedroom house at 1398 The Crescent for $23.998 million.
