Realogics Sotheby’s International Realty’s And Sotheby’s International Realty Canada’s Jeff McDonald Lists Incredible Vancouver, BC Estate

By Lauren Haslett |

Jeff McDonald, broker with Sotheby’s International Realty Canada and Realogics Sotheby’s International Realty (RSIR) in Seattle, WA, has just listed an incredible newly constructed property in the heart of the city of Vancouver, British Columbia. The exquisite estate is located on a prime parcel of land in the sought-after suburb of Shaughnessy and has just listed at CAD $28,880,000.

This jaw-dropping home oozes new-school luxury from every feature and finish. The two-story entry immediately strikes you in with a sweeping spiral staircase and oversized windows at soaring heights, providing an abundance of natural light. Sparkling Schonbek chandeliers in the entry and formal dining room lend this space a look of modern yet classic grandeur that is hard to achieve, but when pulled off exquisitely—as in this home—is the epitome of refined living.

Comprised of three floors, with seven bedrooms—including an incredible master suite with his-and-hers separate walk-in closets and two private terraces. This opulent master retreat is offered in a soothing but eye-catching neutral palette with marble surfaces and thoughtful details throughout. The highlight of this suite, though, is the his-and-hers bathrooms and vanities with a gorgeous connecting spa-inspired, walk-in marble shower, with Bluetooth music systems and luxury rainfall showerhead.

Mirrored ceilings in the kitchen and family dining areas reflect the already abundant natural light and make this open-concept space feel absolutely enormous. The kitchen is adorned with spectacularly designed Italian book-match patterned porcelain tiles that cover the flooring, backsplashes, and countertops. The extensive dining island and bar offer incredible seating for five and are anchored by three stunning brass chandeliers. A separate wine fridge and chef-quality range will please even the most discerning cook, while several other appliances are hidden by white fronts that blend perfectly with the rest of the kitchen’s cabinetry. The kitchen and dining areas flow seamlessly into the family room which has a gas fireplace, additional built-in storage, beverage station, automatic cascading patio doors, marble-painted ceilings with intricate recessed lighting, and beautifully carved crown moldings.

A separate entertaining area surprises you with a warm and intricate color scheme with all of the opulent touches: deep brown brushed oak flooring and matching hand-painted ceilings, movie theater, gym, guest room, games room, a six-person bar with a champagne vessel, a massive wine room, a pool table, and a custom-made velvet-upholstered lounge backed by a black marble accent wall and capped by gas fireplaces at each end.

Windows from the bar illuminate the space and look out to a shimmering waterfall and indoor pool with indoor and outdoor access grotto. This home is built to perfection for every master entertainer’s needs and as a graceful hideaway that feels simultaneously like it is a world away.


The Neighborhood

This breathtaking home is just blocks away from the VanDusen Botanical Garden, a spectacular green space built on an old golf course site, and minutes from the Bloedel Conservatory, a unique tropical paradise situated at the top of Queen Elizabeth Park, and the highest point in the city of Vancouver. Home to more than 100 exotic birds who are allowed to fly and roam freely, over 500 different species of plants, and a distinctive dome that houses areas for three wildly different climates—Tropical, Subtropical, and Desert—the botanical garden and conservatory are two of Vancouver’s top attractions. The vast amount of protected park space near this home also ensures the neighborhood directly surrounding it can never be overly built up, and your enjoyment of this peaceful place will remain the same for years to come.
