Vancouver’s Landmark c.1912 ‘Hendry House’ Lists For $16.998M

3802 Angus Drive, Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, V6J 4H7

A large 12,000 square foot Tudor Revival mansion on one of the most prominent corners in the heart of Vancouver’s ritzy First Shaughnessy has hit the market for $16,998,000. The imposing home was built in 1912 and was the first commission in Shaughnessy Heights for renowned local architects Samuel Maclure and Cecil Crocker Fox. Vancouver Heritage notes that the original owner was J. E. Tucker, a Texan by birth and the president of Vancouver Lumber Co., who had already commissioned a new home by the time the Tudor Revival was finished. He sold it in 1914 to John Hendry, who lived in the home for one year before his death. Vancouver Heritage also noted, “Shortly after purchasing the house, Hendry commissioned Maclure & Fox to make some alterations or repairs. Aside from redecorating schemes, the major alterations since that time have been the removal of a service elevator and chimney adjacent to the kitchen, and reconfiguration of the kitchen walls.” 

The functional floor plan incorporates 9 bedrooms, 6 bathrooms and 6 fireplaces, and exquisite detailing including fine plasterwork, stone masonry, inlaid hardwood floors, elaborate banisters and woodwork, coffered ceilings, and intricate leaded glass feature windows. Extensive restoration, structural and mechanical upgrading and renovations over the years have enhanced the home’s grace, comfort and hospitality while maintaining the beauty and distinction of its rich heritage. Some of these upgrades have included new plumbing (2001), a new cedar shingle roof (2017), restoration of exterior woodwork (2017), complete exterior painting (2017), a new swimming pool & spa (2001), an entirely new foundation to raise the home and allow a full height basement (1991-1992), as well as many other upgrades. The property is on the market for $16,998,000 with Macdonald Realty
