Those not privileged to live in the area known as “First Shaughnessy” may wonder how it earned that moniker.This area between West 16th & King Edward, Arbutus & Oak, was originally developed by the CPR in 1907, and was designed as the Vancouver’s most exclusive residential enclave. It was an area of large lots where a building of $6,000 minimum value was required. Now, you have a rare opportunity to own luxury 1/2 duplex in this unique neighbourhood. An award winning “Heritage A” mansion encompassing two luxury units which have never been on the market at the same time is now on sale for whopping $35 million.
This exquisite luxurious estate which was the home of the former Lt. Governor is now on offer as connected mansion for easy access, but can easily be converted back into two independent units. A total of 12,216 sq ft (1st – 4686 sq ft and 2nd – 7530 sq ft) features 9 bedrooms, 13 bathrooms and 3 kitchens. Beautifully restored two-storey heritage residence includes formal rooms, 2 wine cellars, oak floors, stained glass windows, gourmet kitch, oak panelled elevator and art deco parkade.
