1453 Laurier Avenue, Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, V6H 1Z2

When a new listing pops up in Vancouver with these three dreadful words, “Hold, Renovate, or Build”, the outlook is never good even at $7,188,000.  The chances of any home with those three words lasting another year is very slim.  This 5,117 square foot gem in Shaughnessy dates back to 1912 – the same year the RMS Titanic sank in the Atlantic Ocean yet it is still considered somewhat of a tear down. The listing says, “Large 20,000 square foot lot, close to the best schools and minutes to Downtown.”

The mansion features 7 bedrooms & 5 bathrooms, a grand entry, formal dining room complete with fireplace & built ins, original hardwood floors, a remodelled kitchen with classic AGA stove, a beautiful tiled sunroom, and oodles of gorgeous leaded glass windows.  If that’s not enough this beautiful heritage home sits on an estate sized property with enough room for swimming pool, and formal gardens!  Unfortunately whoever buys this 1912 gem will look past all this beauty to simply tear it down, subdivide, and resell.  It’s listed at $7,188,000 with Ravi Chadha of Homeland Realty.
