Each week, BCBusiness takes you inside one of the most outrageously upmarket real estate offerings in the province
Address: 5363 Kew Cliff Road, West Vancouver
The skinny: Five-bedroom, four-bathroom, 31,600-sq.-ft. waterfront estate in the lower Caulfield area of West Vancouver.
The bling: This property boasts more bling than Kim and Kanye on a hot date. Sure, it’s got the setting, the size and the serious style, but anyone with a few million bucks can throw that together. What really distinguishes this spot is the unapologetic excess: a massive moat-style koi fishpond out front and an even bigger swimming pool for people out back. Then there’s the indoor spa, pool and hot tub and a massive garage—for your yacht. Yep, a 50-foot building for your boat, with its own elevator system. It doesn’t get much more hoity-toity than that. Well, except for the heated five-car garage, perhaps, or the in-house elevator to help you schlep around this three-storey behemoth.
The hidden extras: Acres (well, almost 13,000 square feet) of interiors bursting with slate, Brazilian cherry and floor-to-ceiling glass. There’s also geothermal heating, a media room, library, office and workshop. The recreation room—currently home to a pool table and extensive exercise equipment—has its own kitchen, saving you from running upstairs (or taking the elevator) mid-workout to grab that coconut oil, chia seed and spirulina smoothie you so desperately deserve.
