This exceptionally modern and stunning home up for sale sits on a half-acre that has ties to one of the oldest and most prestigious families in Vancouver’s history.
Behind a secluded driveway in Altamont, one of West Vancouver’s most exclusive neighbourhoods, sits 2910 Parklane. The luxury estate offers sweeping, 180-degree oceanfront views from each of its three levels, the foundations of which were built on land formerly owned by a member of Vancouver’s notable Woodward family.
Once an apple orchard, the land now hosts a myriad of high-end features such as outdoor infinity pools, three private Zen garden courtyards, a barbecue pit and access to your own private waterfront with storage space for kayaks or a boat.
The home itself is called the Elemental House and has the capability to be net-zero with the addition of solar power which it was designed to accommodate. If you’re sick of fiddling with the thermostat, the Elemental House uses a geothermal heating and cooling system which can control the temperature of any room in the house through a smart device.
The Elemental House’s features read like a laundry list of luxury. Designed by architect Paul Grant the home was built over five years with construction ending in 2008.
Each of the five large bedrooms comes with ensuites; throughout the home, there are seven spa-inspired bathrooms. The entertainment-size principal rooms come with floor-to-ceiling glass windows framed with rare edge-grain fir.
During the winter months, warm yourself up at any of the home’s five fireplaces or maybe even the steam room. And why use stairs to get to those fireplaces when you can use the elevator? If you’re feeling inspired you can take the elevator down to a soundproof professional-grade music studio.
If that still wasn’t enough, there’s also a large, corporate-style office, a four-car garage, indoor/outdoor speaker sound system built into the ceilings and motorized blinds, because really, who has the time?
Altogether, the Element House has a whopping 9,432 square feet of formal and informal living space.
More into the culinary arts? No problem. The home also boasts a fully-loaded open-plan European-style kitchen, a deluxe pantry, with professional-grade Gaggenau and Miele appliances. The home’s upper north wing features a self-contained luxury guest suite that comes with its own small kitchen.
Sometimes words don’t do justice to extravagance, so here’s your chance to virtually walk around the $26,880,000 home yourself.
As for nearby conveniences, the home is just a short walk from the seawall, restaurants, Dundarave Village, shops, cafes, schools and beaches. By car, you are close to the BC Ferries, hiking trails, golf courses and ski hills.
