Casa Mia – SOLD


This 20,728 Sq. Ft. Mansion has been a part of Vancouver’s history since the 1930’s and it’s up for sale again.  Named Casa Mia, the Estate consists of 1.5 Acres with meticulously maintained gardens and an inviting outdoor swimming pool with views of the Fraser River & Richmond.  The Mansion was built in 1932 for George Reifel, the businessman who opened the Commodore Ballroom.  Later in the 1940’s, Reifel had Louis Armstrong and Dizzy Gillespie play shows for him at this home which features a full stage with back room on the lower level.  Reifel spared no expense on the home including having a Disney Cartoonist visit the property to paint murals in the kids’ bedrooms.  There is also a 2 storey Grand Staircase and a Ballroom with Men’s and Women’s Bathrooms.  The Mansion was previously listed in 2007 for $12,000,000 and a year later at $10,500,000.  The current asking price is a steal, since the BC Assessment on the home is nearly $12,000,000!
