BCBusiness takes you inside one of the most outrageously upmarket real estate offerings in the province
Address: 4611 Pendlebury Road, Richmond
The skinny: Five-bedroom, six-bathroom, 3,906-square-foot house with a resort-like yard in Richmond
The bling: Do you like golf? How about marbles? Either way this Richmond unit has you covered. There's a little pitch-and-putt green in the backyard. Meanwhile on the inside, you'll find more marble on the floor than you saw in Home Alone. Shiny and slick, that's your deal right here.
There's marble in the kitchen, the dining room, the living room, et cetera. The bathrooms are of course covered in marble, just like the rest. You should probably hang up signs all over the house reading “BATHROOM” or “NOT THE BATHROOM” in case you get confused. Accidents might be embarrassing.
There's also an entertainment room (weird, round, orange upholstered thing not included) where a really strange flick seems to be playing. Have a look—it might be a home movie of Danny De Vito taking a nap. You are free to play your own movies, of course—perhaps one of George Clooney flossing?
But then it's back to all that marble. This place must have acoustics like an empty flour tin. Then again, all the echoes might drown out the curses coming from the pitch-and-putt out front. No problem—if you get tired of golf, there's always skateboarding. This place would be perfect for that. You could probably do some sick moves off the quartz countertops on that kitchen island. Maybe get some socks with traction, just to be safe.
The hidden extras: Three gas fireplaces, surrounded by a certain material—what do you call that stuff, you know, hard, smooth, shiny, prominent in ancient Rome—never mind, it'll come to me.
