When it comes to luxury real estate, there’s little in New West to rival the kinds of multimillion-dollar properties habitually seen in Whistler or West Van.
But there’s still a market for the high-end home in New West, as evidenced by a recent sale.
A rebuilt 1931 home on Fourth Avenue in Queen’s Park recently sold for $3.15 million after just five days on the market, according to its Zealty.ca listing — just a shade below its original asking price of $3.195 million.
The 4,280-square-foot, four-bedroom home was taken down to the studs and had a three-storey addition added in 2006, its listing notes. It also comes with an array of high-end features including chef-style kitchen opening to a large family room, double French doors leading to an outdoor entertainment area (with built-in barbecue, fireplace, speakers and heater), two home offices, a temperature-controlled wine cellar, home gym, media room and more.
There’s even a custom-built treehouse complete with TV, WiFi, trundle bed, heat, lighting, porch and slide.
Though that property is now off the market, there are still a few high-end single-family homes listed for those in the market to spend in the $2.5- to $3-million range.
