Huge Okanagan mansion with epic views listed at $16.8M (PHOTOS)

A million bucks of that value is in the imported Maharaja palace door collection. Yes, really

Recently listed on the Okanagan MLS is this mega-mansion on a five-acre estate in Coldstream, just south of Vernon, which has hit the market at $16,868,000. That makes this property the priciest home for sale in the North Okanagan region and the second highest-priced listing in the B.C. Interior (there’s a $20 million listing just south of Kelowna).

The five-bedroom, 10-bathroom, custom-built home is laid out over 16,000 square feet, and includes a double-height great room with gallery, a gourmet chef’s kitchen, library, games room, gym, office, home theatre, wine cellar, wet bar and a separate guest suite designed after a Scottish bothy (but fancier).

The house has many ultra-luxe features, including complete home automation controlled from your smartphone, Swarovski crystal light fixtures, custom millwork, American Black Walnut cabinetry, maple inlay flooring and imported tile. And arguably the most opulent feature is the million-dollar collection of rare, handcrafted, antique doors imported from Maharaja palaces in India.

Outside, the expansive terraces and large pool take in incredible south-westerly views of the Okanagan Valley and Lake Kalamalka. There’s also an oversized triple garage, including room for an RV, and a vast driveway with parking space for 20 cars, plus a stone fountain.

The property is also currently home to a spectacular art collection featuring busts from Africa, hand-carved stone elephants from India and custom art from South African artists – all of which are negotiable to purchase along with the home, as are the current furnishings.

The 2007-built house and five-acre lot were valued by B.C. Assessment in July 2017 at $5,487,000. (We guess B.C. Assessment hasn’t seen its imported door collection...)
