In 2014 one of the largest estate properties in Vancouver, British Columbia could have been yours for $10,980,000 CAD. Those times are long gone. This sprawling 6 bed, 9 bath Tudor sits on a large 4.25 acre estate on one of the city’s most coveted streets and under 20 minutes to downtown Vancouver. It is known as ‘The Gables’, and was built c.1929 for the President of B.C. Electric, W.G. Murrin, and has had only three owners in the past 89 years. Following the sale in 2014, the 10,000 square foot home underwent a substantial renovation, keeping some of the original detail and adding a whole lot of modern. It hit the market in October 2016 for $38,000,000 CAD and with no takers the historic property was reduced to $29,800,000 CAD in May 2017. Fast forward to May 2018 and a few more million has been shaved off the list price. It’s now on the market for $24,750,000. It sits on an impressive 4.25 acre estate property and includes features such as towering mature trees, panoramic views that stretch to the Gulf Islands, stone pathways, a private lake with viewing dock, fire pit, an exclusive golf practice & training facility and substantial 65′ infinity edge swimming pool. As for the inside, several parts of the home have retained the original architectural detail, including the oak panelled formal entrance, dining hall with fireplace and large formal living room, however some areas of the home have gone completely modern with a glass-encased open riser staircase, walls of glass that fold away and a kitchen with a very modern European feel. The lower level hosts an array of amenities including a gym, a home theatre, and a wine cellar with tasting room. Whether or not the renovation is to your taste, there is no doubt that the land is appealing. It’s listed with Greg CarrosClick here to see a series of pre-renovation photos.
