Private Island Getaway - $29,800,000

Located just a short boat ride from West Vancouver is your own private island getaway.  This is a rare once in a lifetime opportunity to own Greater Vancouver's only fully serviced & secure private island.  No expense was spared in the building & finishing of this island home.  The spectacular architectural elements include heavy wooden beams, wood paneling on the walls, skylights, large expanses of glass & a wonderful flow for indoor/outdoor entertaining. The great room, open plan features Travertine marble floors, a luxurious high end kitchen complete with two Miele dishwashers, side by side Subzero fridge and freezer, Dacor gas stove . The outdoor living space is simply amazing with flat lawn, slate covered decks, gorgeous pool setting and steps leading down to the two completely private beachfront guest suites.

Upside:  You live on your own island, have view that is worth a million dollars (in this case, tens of millions!!), plus you won't have any pesky sales people coming to your door.  Tons and tons and tons of rich woods and stones.

Downsides:  If your into cars than this house may not make your top ten list.  The $29,800,000 asking price is for a house and an island, which'll need to find somewhere else to store your car collection!  Small square footage for the price & also a small pool.

Price: $29,800,000

Square Feet: Just over 5,000

MCal's Thoughts:  All in all it's an incredible opportunity to own an island home just minutes from Vancouver - however the styling of the house, the size, and the lack of garages just doesn't do it for me.  I'd much rather buy a $5,000,000 house on a nice lot with a larger floor plan.  To each his own.
