Your own ‘White House’ in West Vancouver – for $22M

Described by the listing agent as “West Van’s most impressive residence” – and that’s saying something – this Altamont house is the Lower Mainland’s priciest new listing of last week (February 5-11) at $22 million on the nose.

The home – reminiscent of the White House with its white stucco exterior and colonial columns – sits on a 39,204-square-foot lot and has a double-gated driveway with a dramatic waterfall pond.

Inside, it’s absolutely vast, at 16,245 square feet of interior living space, with eight to 10 bedrooms, as many bathrooms, several huge living spaces and a large chef's kitchen. It also has entertainment space for days, including a games room, media room and recreation room plus bowling lane, each with a bar.

The home’s interior proportions are huge, with 28-foot ceilings in the entrance foyer, from which hangs a massive chandelier. There are two sweeping staircases, one of which has a cylindrical aquarium rising up through it. There's also a 20-foot-high curved wine wall that can hold 1,500 bottles.

But the "games room" is arguably the most jaw-dropping part of the house, with soaring 20-foot ceilings and a central firepit (yes, in the middle of the room) with a huge suspended chimney flue hanging over it.
