Expansive Estate in Sought After Southlands Neighbourhood
Located on the border of Vancouver’s exclusive Kerrisdale and Southlands neighbourhoods, this stunning, expansive, and private seven-bedroom, 11,200 square foot estate provides the peace and quiet of the countryside with all of the conveniences of city living. As you descend the long, sweeping driveway amongst old-growth trees providing privacy from the road, the front of the home comes into view at the end of an impressive roundabout with two garages for a total of seven vehicles.
The grand front entrance invites you in past the beautiful water features and meticulous landscaping which is found over every inch of the grounds. Through the front door, you are immediately presented with an immaculate, welcoming grand foyer with exposed iron throughout, flanked by an intimate sitting room and a spectacular office. Passing the staircase, the room opens into a large library with another open office featuring views of the stream.
As you enter the dining area the true scale of this open concept, Julie Hodgson designed home truly becomes apparent. The massive entertainer’s kitchen features a 25-foot-long quartz island with seating for six, top-of-the-line appliances including steam ovens, three dishwashers and an espresso machine, and ample storage for the most seasoned home chef. This flows down into the Great Room with an amazing stone fireplace that extends the entire length of the room, and folding doors that open from wall to wall leading out to a large patio with a retractable awning, providing the ideal spot for summer evening relaxation.
Downstairs, the luxury amenities continue with a full gym, games room with a pool table, large media room, wet bar and full, turquoise blue spa with a steam shower and infrared sauna. Two incredible bedrooms can also be located on this floor, both opening to the pool.
The resort-like landscaping, masterfully designed by Paul Sangha, culminates at the pool area featuring a waterfall that cascades from the front of the house, incredible stonework, immaculate landscaping, and a barbeque pavilion with room for plenty of guests to dine outside. After dinner, walk down to the firepit and gaze over the rest of the grounds from the elevation of the Southlands ridge. From here you see the expansive lawn, full-sized tennis court and putting green with sand traps. This is a true luxury estate in the middle of our beautiful city.
