Vancouver’s Historic c.1929 ‘Gables Estate’ Goes Modern After Extensive Remodel, Lists For $38-Million
2106 SW Marine Drive, Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada V6P 6B5
Two years ago you could have purchased this sprawling 6 bed, 9 bath Tudor for a little under $11-million, today it’s going to cost you a whopping $38-million. Welcome to what is considered the largest estate property available in 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 87 years. This stately and iconic 10,000 square foot Tudor mansion recently underwent a substantial renovation, merging old world architectural detail with new modern design & convenience. It sits on an impressive 4.25-acre estate lot 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 European modern 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. Will it find a buyer at $38-million? We’ll have to wait and see. It’s listed with Greg Carros.
