The most expensive house in Vancouver is also the most expensive house in the whole of Canada. The name of the avenue on which this house can be found is quite significant. The three-building estate you’ll get for the listing price is more like a modern castle than a normal house. The property is located in West Vancouver with a view of the Lower Mainland, downtown, the U.S., and Vancouver Island.

Travelling to and from the property is also relatively painless. It takes only ten minutes to get downtown by car, and the property has direct access to Highway 1. This enables the owner to be on the US border in an hour or wander off to Kelowna or Okanagan, which are approximately a four-hour drive. If you decide to head west, you can be in one of world’s best ski resorts, Whistler, in one hour and 20 minutes, or take a ferry to Gulf Island from the Horseshoe ferry terminal, which is only ten minutes away.

The property currently features a doll house with walking trails, stables, a tennis court, and charming forest surroundings, with a 5,000-square-foot house. The property is approximately 5.44 acres. The current zoning of the property enables the potential buyer to build three structures to a maximum size of 49,055 square feet, 5,774 square feet, and 15,489 square feet, respectively. The future owner may place all three structures as ranchers (one-storey buildings). The main rancher house has been designed at 21,091 square feet, the guest house at 7,000 square feet, and the office/maids’ quarters at 2,580 square feet. All houses have separate driveways.

The main house is a miracle of modern architecture. Imagine three waterfalls, a vast hot tub, a negative edge pool, both indoor and outdoor pools, six bedrooms, a wine cellar, a massage room, a gym, a billiards room, and a 15-car garage inside one house. Welcome to real-estate paradise. If you wish to sit outside, just open one of the glass walls and enter an outdoor kitchen, cabanas, viewing area, or just sit by the fireplace.

The guest house consists of four private en-suites with patios. The guest house also features a media room, a negative edge pool, and a three-car garage.

The last of the buildings has more levels and includes a two-bedroom maids quarters and an owner’s office consisting of a waiting area, kitchen, board room, reception area, and bathrooms. The top-floor office also includes a bar and a commanding view.
