c.1912 First Shaughnessy Heritage B Mansion Reduced to $17.8M
3690 Selkirk Street, Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada
A gorgeous Heritage B listed mansion in Vancouver’s posh First Shaughnessy neighbourhood has come back on the market for $17,800,000. It came on the market at the beginning of 2016 for $18,800,000 and oddly jumped to $21,000,000 just months later. Clearly this marketing strategy failed to work and the home dropped to $19,800,000 shortly after. It was removed for a short while and has come back on for $17,800,000. It was built in c.1912 and a little research revealed that it once belonged to Walter and Irene Maccaud Nelson. There are a variety of photos from August 1959 on Vancouver.ca, the website includes beautiful vintage photos that should be viewable here near the bottom of the page. Spanning 7,204 square feet, the home sits on a generous 32,000 square foot private lot in close proximity to renowned private schools. The interior of the home includes extensive original woodwork including wainscoting, columns, crown and an impressive grand staircase providing access to all levels. There are 6 bedrooms & 5 bathrooms throughout, and an older listing noted that there is a bonus 1,513 square feet of unfinished space awaiting your creative design. It’s on the market for $17,800,000 with Jeff Benna.
