Vast Surrey villa re-listed for $28.8M, 10 times assessed value (PHOTOS)

This massive, resort-style “Tuscan villa” in Surrey raised eyebrows and hit media headlines last summer with its record-breaking listing price of $28 million, 10 times its assessed value – later adjusted to $26 million and did not sell at the time. Not to be deterred, the owners have now listed their spectacular property again – at an even higher price.

“Villa di Ponti” was put back on the market March 19 for $28.8 million, making it by far the Lower Mainland’s priciest new residential MLS listing last week (March 19-26).

The new price is still just shy of 10 times the home’s assessed value, which as of July 2017 was $2.92 million – $1,095,000 for the land, and $1,825,000 for the house, according to B.C. Assessments.

Built in 2014, the multiple-construction-award-winning home is truly jaw-dropping. It sits on nearly 77 acres, around a 15-minute drive to White Rock, and has a 10-acre vineyard, two “docked and stocked” private lakes with a white sand beach, a golf putting green, a helipad, an amphitheatre, an infinity pool plus hot tub, a koi pond, and parking for more than 50 cars.
