It may be pricey – the most expensive new listing on the Lower Mainland’s MLS last week – but it’s tough to imagine a more idyllic family home than this ranch in Vancouver’s Southlands, especially for the summer.
So for those of you who love an aspirational look around a fabulous house and grounds, here’s a peek at this gorgeous property, which was listed on June 19 for $16.8 million.
The home boasts more than 8,000 square feet of living space, at least 7,000 of which is on one sprawling level.
The main floor benefits from a huge, vaulted-ceiling great room that combines a gourmet kitchen with dining and lounging areas.
In addition to the great room, there’s also a large separate formal living room, a formal dining room and separate family room/den.
In total the property has six bedrooms – four of which are in the main house, with three (two ensuite) on the main floor, plus a loft suite designed for a nanny. It also has seven bathrooms in all, five being in the main house.
The master suite has a huge dressing room, a generous ensuite bathroom and French doors out to one of the many terraces.
Outside there are more than two acres of grounds, with expansive landscaped gardens, terraces around the house, a large swimming pool, a huge barn/stable block with a separate street entrance, a riding ring and paddocks.
There’s also a pool house that contains another of the bedrooms, plus a living space and a bathroom, and there’s a one-bedroom suite above the stable block.
B.C. Assessment valued the property in July 2018 at $10,517,000, which was down from the previous year’s $11,381,000. Property taxes on the home in 2018 were $24,160.35.
