39623 Old Yale Road, Abbotsford, British Columbia, Canada, V3G 1X7
One of the oldest buildings in Abbotsford, British Columbia is still looking for a buyer after several years on the market and a failed auction in 2019. The Sumas Substation on Old Yale Road was originally constructed in 1906 to power the Interurban train from Vancouver to Chilliwack. After falling into a state of disrepair for several years, the property was brought back to life with a total renovation converting the towering structure into a unique private residence. Today, the residence offers just under 13,000 square feet of space with two additional rental apartments and a third two bedroom suite perfect for a nanny or extended family. There are a total of 8 bedrooms and 8 full bathrooms throughout. It’s built of concrete and brick and features acid stained concrete flooring, exposed brick, floor-to-ceiling windows, five kitchens, two large lofts and a home theatre. The unique property is scenically situated on 2.35 acres and borders a 30 acre greenbelt forest with mountain views, clean air and water with a beautiful stream flowing beside it year round. The converted substation was previously on the market as much as $6.38 million CAD. The property is currently on the market for $2.9 million CAD with Sara Gillooly of Re/Max All Points Realty.
