BCLiving takes you inside one of the most outrageously upmarket real estate offerings in the province
Address: 20030 Second Avenue, Langley
The skinny: Five-bedroom, eight-bathroom, 8,357-square-foot house on half an acre in Langley.
The bling: You may never have actually been on Her Majesty’s secret service, but—as your doctor knows—never say never again. The world is not enough for you, we understand, and, while the spectre of moving to the suburbs would once have scared the living daylights out of you, it’s time to really consider the quantum of solace relocation could bring. That gold finger of yours has never let you down before, and this fully loaded executive mansion is for your eyes only. It’s time to live, and let die the thunderball of panic a long commute would once have inspired: the skyfall of your nightmares can die another day. Here is a licence to kill off all the hangers on who take up so much of your time and concentrate on developing useful contacts, perhaps from Russia, with love and fresh energy. Remember: tomorrow never dies and you only live, um, once twice.*
The hidden extras: All the things: a bazillion sitting rooms, golf simulation room, media room, steam room, candy room (no, really: look at the pictures), gym, games room, lake and, of course, a garage fit for your Aston Martin.
