c.1912 Shaughnessy Mansion Takes $2-Million Price Cut (PHOTOS)
3589 Granville Street, Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada
Vancouver, B.C. has a reputation of having some of the highest priced homes in North America. In many cases these homes do not live up to their $20-million+ price tags in terms of size, quality, and architectural detail. This is not the case with this lovely heritage mansion in Vancouver’s posh Shaughnessy neighbourhood. A recent $2-million price reduction has dropped this spacious 8,895 square foot residence to a more affordable $11.988-million, at least for the uber rich. If it’s character, quality, and detail from a bygone era that you’re looking for – then prepare to be impressed. Built c.1912, this Heritage-A designated mansion sits on a large 3/4-acre park-like lot complete with porte-cochère and detached garage with coach house. It’s known locally as the Rocklands Mansion, also called the Walsh House on the City of Vancouver Shaughnessy walking tour, and it was totally renovated by a European designer while keeping many of the heritage detail intact. Spanning four stories, the home includes elegant formal rooms with original detail, leaded glass windows, oak & mahogany panelling, and a sun-drenched solarium-style kitchen complete with Sub Zero & Miele appliances. Wiring, plumbing, heating, & air conditioning have all been upgraded. You’ll find a total of 8 bedrooms throughout the mansion, and a total of 8 bathrooms. The lower level includes a definition media room, recreation room, a wet bar, and exercise area. You will not find a more appealing home in all of Vancouver for the money. The property is listed with Dan Mosher of Sotheby’s International Realty.
