The “Sold” sign placed on a Langdale estate this week marked a record-breaking event in real estate sales on the Sunshine Coast. Listed by Sotheby’s International Realty and sold by Pacific Place – Arc Realty LTD, the massive estate is the most expensive property ever sold (on MLS©) in the area. Designed by Stuart Howard, the English Country Manor House is jaw-dropping for more than the price tag.

Built to resemble a late 18th Century castle, this 22,319 sq.ft home is surrounded by luxurious privacy and western water views. Completed in 2005, the estate graces 53 acres of land, complete with old-growth forest, expansive entertaining patio, and private lake with dock. The majestic entrance is postcard perfect, with a tranquil water feature gracing the perfect symmetry of the home’s exterior.

Stately double doors open into an open foyer graced by twin curved staircases and impossibly soaring ceiling. The Sound of Music’s ballroom dance scene comes to mind, updated by a near-century by gorgeous hardwood and contemporary colour palette. Perfect for entertaining a crowd, 12 bedrooms and 8 baths offer comfort and a private retreat, while shared living spaces offer a range of comforts: library, media room, games room, exercise centre, indoor pool and more.

Amazing West Coast views seal the deal as an absolute bargain for the value of the full estate. A quick scan of Greater Vancouver listings reveals many options in the $6.6mil range, including a 7,800 sq.ft home in West Vancouver’s British Properties. In Vancouver’s equally prestigious Shaughnessy neighbourhood, $6.6mil will currently buy a 4,620 sq.ft, four-bedroom home on a 12,550 sq.ft lot, with a note to buyers, “home can be demolished.”

$6.6mil should buy a dream home, not a demolition scene , and the Sunshine Coast sets this record straight.
