Million dollar homes are nothing new to the City of Vancouver. But this rare opportunity to own both sides of this award winning “Heritage A” Mansion located in 1st Shaughnessy is on another level of opulence.

This luxurious estate was the home of the former Lt. Governor. The house is actually two separate units and until now these two units have never been on the market at the same time. However, since the current owner has connected both for easy access, they have been listed as one.

The units can easily be converted back to two independent units (#1 – 4686 sq ft /#2 – 7530 sq ft) combined total of 12,216 square feet.

Vancouver's Most Expensive Home

 

This beautifully restored heritage residence includes formal rooms, 2 wine cellars, oak floors, stained glass windows, gourmet kitch, oak panelled elevator and art deco parkade. Combined number of 9 bedrooms , 13 bathrooms , 3 kitchen. The secured underground parking spaces makes it easy to just lock & leave the estate.

Apartments in the Knightsbridge complex cost more than $11,000 a square foot, nearly three times the typical price of luxury London real estate.
BloombergApartments in the Knightsbridge complex cost more than $11,000 a square foot, nearly three times the typical price of luxury London real estate.

London’s One Hyde Park is one of the wealthiest and most secretive residences in the world.

Apartments in the Knightsbridge complex cost more than $11,000 a square foot, nearly three times the typical price of luxury London real estate.

But relatively little is known about the people who own homes there. Of the 76 apartments sold in the 86-unit building, 64 are registered to corporations and just 17 are listed as primary residences, according to Nicholas Shaxson, who wrote a greatexposé of the building in this month’s Vanity Fair.

Even so, Shaxson and others have found out who some of One Hyde Park’s owners are. Get to know some of the sheikhs, oligarchs, and global rich who own apartments at the world’s most expensive apartment building.

 

One Hyde Park, located in Knightsbridge, is adjacent to Hyde Park and the Mandarin Oriental hotel.

The per-square-foot price of a unit at One Hyde Park is 10 TIMES the price of average residential real estate in London, and nearly three times more than luxury real estate in the city.

Among other perks, there’s a stainless steel ozone pool, an entertainment suite, a golf simulator, and a spa run by the Mandarin Oriental.

There are also three retailers on site: Rolex, McLaren, and Abu Dhabi Islamic Bank.

Security in the building is insane. There are panic rooms, bulletproof glass, and guards trained by British Special Forces, according to Vanity Fair.
