An historic landmark with history dating back to 1906, the Sumas Substation on Old Yale Road was originally constructed to power the Interurban train from Vancouver to Chilliwack. After falling into a state of disrepair for several years, the property was brought back to life with a total renovation converting the towering structure into a private home. Today, this is amazing place to live, just less than a one hour drive to Vancouver! Built of concrete and brick BC Electric Corporation, it has been restored and renovated to the highest standards. Private acres of forest, birds and butterflies, a beautiful stream flowing by all year and clean air and water.
Now, the residence offers over 13,000 square feet of space with two additional rental apartments, and a third two bedroom suite perfect for a nanny or extended family. It’s built of concrete and brick and features acid stained concrete flooring, exposed brick, and floor-to-ceiling windows. The residence is nestled against Vedder Mountain, while railway tracks line the front yard. The unique property had previously been listed as high as $6.388 million CAD, but can now be yours for just $4.988 million CAD.
