Each week, BCBusiness takes you inside one of the most outrageously upmarket real estate offerings in the province
Address: 719 Eyremount Drive, West Vancouver
The skinny: Seven-bedroom, eight-bathroom, 11,322-square-foot house on a 28,000-square-foot lot in the British Properties.
The bling: New Year, new you, right? Out with the old, and in with the brand spanking new. You’re feeling all shiny, bright and optimistic, so it’s natural to want your home to reflect the spectacular being called you before "you" unleash it into the world at large. And what better neighbourhood in which to revel in how special you really are than the gloriously, unapologetically posh environs of West Van’s British Properties? Built last year, clearly with wannabe Disney princesses like yourself in mind, this magnificent monstrosity boasts oodles of marble, a double sweeping staircase for maximum entrance impact, and a black-and-white colour palette that will perfectly set off your carefully curated couture. Pink pumps today, sequined sandals tomorrow. Oh, the possibilities for fabulousness are simply endless. It’s 2017. The rich can only get richer. So why not hang your designer hat on a nouveau riche palace—only a fool or a peasant would let this opportunity pass them by, after all. You, on the other hand, you know your true worth.
The hidden extras: Wine cellar, wet bar, media room, billiard room, huge swimming pool, hot tub and a guest suite (even billionaires enjoy a bit of mortgage relief, right?).
