This is what a $27 million Tudor-style mansion looks like in Canada
For those among the 1 per cent who prefer a more historic, even medieval-inspired aesthetic to the popular concrete-and-glass contemporary or even marble-clad (a la Drake) architecture and design, there is a beautiful Tudor-style mansion for sale in Vancouver for a cool $27 million.
The heritage Tudor-style estate is basically a private little castle, built in the early 1900s by a Whiskey baron and recently restored to its original glory.
The renovation took years and costed millions, with "no expense spared nor any detail overlooked" — you know, the usual for anyone trying to renovate their home on absolutely no timeline or budget whatsoever.
Prospective buyers will have to find ways to fill the 9 bedrooms (plus 3 in an attached coachhouse), 12 bathrooms and 16,655 square feet of open space, which includes 11 fireplaces and 20 foot ceilings in parts.
Accents include a front gate (obviously), beamed ceilings, panelled walls, vintage fittings and tiles, grand oak staircases, gold chandeliers and separate "catereres kitch" for all those formal dinner parties you don't feel like cooking yourself.
Though the home is situated in the reputable residential area of Shaughnessy bordering East Vancouver and Kitsilano, you'll be the the cream of the crop among your neighbours, who make a paltry $79,403 per year, on average. (Your monthly mortgage payments alone will be $20,000 more than that — hah!)
If you've got the $26,988,000 asking price to spare and are a fan of large, echoey open spaces and ornate, historic woodwork in frankly excessive amounts (if there is such a feeling as wood-induced claustrophobia, the above image encapsulates it perfectly), luxury international realtor Sotheby's is the one to contact.
