Vancouver, BC vs. Beverly Hills, CA

1_260301990_1“Private & Prestigious Lot” – $19,800,000


1784 Drummond Drive, Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, V6T 1B6

By now it’s probably no surprise that the prices in Vancouver, BC can be just a tad bit inflated.  Take this 1.74 acre (75,180 square foot) lot for example.  It’s currently listed at $19.8 million and includes a 3,430 square foot teardown in a state of disrepair with peek-a-boo ocean views.  Personally I would love to restore the current house and bring it back to its former glory (click here to see a photo of it).  Sadly it’s future doesn’t look too good as it will likely be torn down.  The listing mentions that the property is close to UBC, golf courses, Spanish Banks, and is situated within the Queen Mary Elementary and Lord Byng Secondary catchment.  Not long ago we contacted the listing agent with the hopes of getting permission to enter the property and photograph the crumbling mansion – sadly that request was turned down.  Click here to see the listing.  Scroll down to see what you can get in BEVERLY HILLS 90210 for just $150,000 more!
