Each week, BCLiving takes you inside one of the most outrageously upmarket real estate offerings in the province
Address: 2250 Indian River Crescent, North Vancouver
The skinny: Four-bedroom, five-bathroom, 8,537-square-foot house on a 5.6-acre private estate in North Vancouver.
The bling: It’s OK. We know these are trying times. It’s so hard being a billionaire with a net worth capable of influencing citizens in their daily choices: what to eat, what to wear, who to vote for… Not only does everyone want a piece of you, your every move is under scrutiny. Seriously, these people seem to think they have a right to see you hard at work shaping the world in which they live. Well, we may have a solution: a discreet gated hideaway, surrounded by trees to protect from prying eyes. The house may be modest, but the lack of marble, gold leaf and frou-frou just adds to its air of anonymity. Seriously, no one would expect anything of interest to take place in this dull abode. Here you can lobby, plot and pressure away to your heart’s content, with never a worry that the hoi polloi might suspect any nefarious goings on. This is deep cover near Deep Cove. There’s even a private lake. Just sayin’.
Hidden extras: Games room, expansive grounds, private lake, seclusion.
