Villa Di Fonti – magnificent Tuscan-inspired estate on 76-acres of Surrey farmland is making headlines around Greater Vancouver after hitting the market for $28 million CAD. Built just two years ago, the property was the dream of a B.C. couple who frequently rented it out for private weddings and film shoots, and according to The Province, the owners are considering retirement and are looking to downsize. The estate boasts a 15-acre vineyard and cavalcade of luxury features that some realtors say they’ve never seen the likes of in B.C. Other amenities include two lakes, (one stocked with trout, and the other with a man-made beach), a heli-pad, parking for 40 vehicles, an outdoor dining patio with pizza oven, golden fields and landscaped gardens, a koi-fish pond, and a variety of pools and fountains.
The 14,225 square-foot mansion comes with 8 bedrooms, including 4 VIP guest suites, 11 bathrooms, and over 5,000 square feet of outdoor entertaining space. Inside, you’ll found copious quantities of world-class wood and stone building materials, a spa accessed by elevator and a climate-controlled wine cellar.
B.C. assessment documents say residential-zoned land on the property is valued at $986,000, and farmland is valued at $76,000. Buildings on the property are valued at $1,84 million. It is one of the most expensive & opulent properties to ever hit the market in Surrey and the surrounding area.
