This Lavish Home in West Vancouver Was Custom Built to Relax and Entertain

And if the $13.9M listing price is a bit too steep, you can get your fair share of both the “relaxing” and “entertaining” just by touring this amazing home. Ready? Let’s get at it.


There’s no shortage of luxury homes in the Vancouver metro area. Despite the market showing signs of a slow-down, with prices cooling off and inventory picking up, Metro Vancouver is home to some of the most expensive properties in the country — including a $38 million condo!

And while picking the shiniest gem in a deep coffer full of jewelry is no easy task, we dug through some of the most eye-grabbing, dream-inducing Vancouver listings, and stopped as soon as we found this beauty.

Built to relax and entertain

The custom built home is exactly that: custom built to relax and entertain its residents.

Okay, let me elaborate on that: giant windows open to sweeping ocean views, also bringing in plenty of natural light. The open and spacious family room is literally sun-drenched, and comes equipped with eclipse doors that open to a beautiful back patio (same for the living room).

The master bedroom is the ultimate spa retreat, creating a peaceful, relaxed and sophisticated atmosphere. The freestanding bath tub set against rich tile overlooks the stunning ocean view.
