West Vancouver Mansion

Yesterday I was given the opportunity to tour the fabled “Italian Designer Mansion” in Caulfield, West Vancouver (North Shore).

Holly Wood, an Award Winning Realtor, and I met at the “Together in Motion” Event organized by Brian Jessel BMW to celebrate 30 years of German Unity and she invited me to tour this European designed mansion and write about it. In the 10+ years I have had this blog, I have always taken advantage of any opportunities like this, and have had a chance to sail in a Bavarian-style yacht, to tour Canada’s particle accelerator centre (TRIUMF UBC), to attend numerous events as “media” like Vancouver Fashion Week and now view this beautiful mansion up close.

It was definitely worth it!

My heart has always yearned for ocean views and natural vistas and this was definitely the place for it. My dream is that someone I know purchases it and invites me over for the housewarming party. The German or Swiss Consul? A member of the German Canadian Business Association? A client who has needed my help with public relations?

Or maybe you would like me to write something about your European or German-related real estate? Feel free to contact me! 604 828 8788.

This place, according to Sothebys, who is taking care of the marketing, is described as an “ultraluxe residence features 7 bedrooms, 8 & 1/2 bathrooms (7 ensuites) with patios, multiple terraces and breath-taking panoramic ocean and mountain views.”

Twenty-foot ceilings, an array of windows and skylights really showcase the chandeliers and gives the home a feeling of spaciousness and abundant light. The entryway gives you amazing views from all 4 directions.

This place is suitable for a large family or professionals who need to entertain as part of their careers. This mansion has been home to a member of the consular corp. and a family with 4 children since 2018. Imagine being able to entertain indoors or outdoors on the 4500 sq ft west facing deck sharing your residence with friends or clients.

There are also amazing patterns and designs throughout the indoor space, with Milano, Monaco and Miami infused decor demonstrating waves of Tiffany green and turquoise ocean-inspired colours.

We took the elevator to the second floor. There were 4 bedrooms on one side and the master bedroom on the other. The master bedroom also had a sitting room with a giant TV, a King-sized bed with a giant TV, a walk-in closet, an ensuite bathroom featuring a jaccuzi tub and even a yoga room in close proximity!

There is also a two-car garage with plugins for your electric car. The home is surrounded by almost 1 acre of perfectly manicured lawns with geometric hedges, topiaries, custom stone work, palm trees, and blooming flowers and plants – a gardener’s dream palette. This 3 level, one of a kind custom built European-style luxury mansion encompasses 12,254 square feet of living space and majestically sits high above the West Vancouver waterfront with beautiful breath taking ocean views.

This home is built on a rock in the shape of a dragon starting from the east corner of the lot, the most powerful symbol of Yang Energy symbolizing authoritative power, nobility, success, divine protection and wealth and plentiful opportunities.

Here are some neighbours.

Priced at $22,800,000, it is definitely meant for connoisseurs of designer luxury property. With 7-bedrooms, ocean views, proximity to ski hills, ferry boats, parks and beaches and details, such as over 100 sqft of custom wrought iron railings, gate & fencing make this a home for someone who appreciates the finer things in life. It also contains 3 home offices along with all the other rooms, such as a weight room, a sauna, a pool room, and an elevator that can help you with accessibility or moving furniture.
