Big Fat Deal: $18 million to get cosy with seven fireplaces on Vancouver’s Point Grey Road

Inside a four-bedroom, five-bathroom, 5,269-square-foot waterfront home in Vancouver

BCBusiness takes you inside one of the most outrageously upmarket real estate offerings in the province

Address: 2707 Point Grey Road, Vancouver

Price: $17,800,000

Listing: R2351412 

The skinny: Four-bedroom, five-bathroom, 5,269-square-foot waterfront home in Kitsilano

The bling: How many fireplaces do you need to get by? In a pinch? Could you manage with, say, four? Couldnt that lead to hypothermia, or at the very least fist fights amid the jostling crowds of Saturday night hot dog toasters?

Well, stop sweating about such hypothetical nightmare scenarios. This Point Grey waterfront property offers you seven fireplaces. That’s probably enough for any contingency, not counting kilns and hibachis.

Of course that kind of fireplace-sufficient peace of mind doesnt come cheap—the asking price works out to roughly $2.5 million per fireplace. But dont think of it that way. You get some other stuff, too, like a sprinkler system. Thats handy in case of fire. Also more than 5,200 square feet of potential marshmallow storage.

Theres a skylight in case you get bored with all that romantic fireside glow, a huge patio deck (with plenty of room to set up a barbecue), plus a kitchen with an “embedded oven” in case you get tired of smores for breakfast, lunch and supper. And air conditioning because, lets face it, seven fireplaces going full-blast in August can make things a bit sticky.

Still, its a very handy set-up. After you cough up almost $18 million and close to $100,000 in annual property taxes, youll probably be eating a lot of hot dogs and campfire beans. Here youll have your choice of seven rooms to cook them in.

The hidden extras: Located along the Point Grey bike path, which will be handy if you can manage to steal a bike.
