“Hold, Renovate, or Build!”

5689 McMaster Road, Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada

If you’re planning to live anywhere near UBC you better have a fat wallet.  This fine piece of real estate located at 5689 McMaster Road is conveniently located walking distance to UBC Campus, schools, and shops.  The 2,300 square foot home offers three bedrooms, two bathrooms and is set on a 0.51-acre lot in the University Endowment Lands.  The age of the building is withheld, and instead the terms “old timer” are posted, however it was likely built in the 60s/70s.  Regardless of its age, this home is considered a teardown.  In fact the listing includes those dreaded words, “Hold, Renovate, or Build!” So what would you pay for a teardown on a 0.51-acre lot in the University Endowment Lands?  Well this property is listed at $6,280,000 CAD / $5,755,923 USD.  Ridiculous right?  We’ve found a beautiful 22,596 square foot mansion on a 2.82-acre estate in the Sugarloaf Country Club in Duluth, Georgia listed well below this UBC teardown.  Scroll down to see it.
