For Sale: Daniel Graystone’s Caprica House – Yours For Only $12 Million

written by John Chow on August 4, 2010

If you’re a fan of the reimagined Battlestar Galactica series, then no doubt you’ve watched the new Capria series. Caprica takes place 50 years before the events of Battlestar Galactica and centers around two families, the Adamas and the Graystones. The Adamas are average everyday folks (for the most part). The Graystones are a super rich family who happen to live in a super swanky house. Well, it seems that Daniel Graystone has fallen on hard times and must sell his waterfront estate. And it can be yours for only $11,980,000!

Like Battlestar Galactica, Caprica is filmed in Vancouver. For the pilot episode, the producers went to West Vancouver, home to some of the most expensive real estate in Canada (and where I live), to find a house that would be worthy of Caprica’s richest citizen. They found it at 6955 Isleview Place.

The house was only used for the pilot episode. After the network picked up the series, the show reproduced most of the house on a studio set. From the outside, the Graystone house in Caprica is a lot bigger than the actual house in West Vancouver. The producers CGI in a tennis court plus Graystone’s lab and CGI out the rest of the neighborhood to make the house look like it was sitting on 20 acres.

I should note that this house has been for sale long before it appeared on Caprica. It’s a hard house to sell because it doesn’t really appeal to the people who can actually afford houses in this price range. Most super rich are married with family. A house that has windows for bedroom walls and a glass bottom walkway isn’t very family friendly. However, if your name is Bruce Wayne or Tony Stark, that’s another story.

If you’re a single billionaire or multimillionaire looking for the ultimate Caprica party pad, this house is for you! Give Jason Soprovich a call and tell him I sent you. I wonder what the commission on a $12 million house is?

Jesus! The lifestyle this guy must have to own a house like this is beyond my wildest dreams.

Thanks for posting John

ZK @ Web Marketing Blog August 5, 2010 at 6:12 am

Yes we would love to have such life style.

Simply amazing and have a look at the view of outside. Simply amazing.

Online College Courses August 5, 2010 at 4:54 pm

Yeah, being on the ocean’s edge must be a sight to wake up to each morning..

PPC Ian August 5, 2010 at 10:54 pm

ZK, you are on your way! Your blog is doing really well , just keep ramping!

ZK @ Web Marketing Blog August 22, 2010 at 10:54 pm

Thanks Ian … I would love to have such kind of house and reading your blog in front of such view will be simply great … :)

Online College Courses August 5, 2010 at 4:51 pm

Musician is my guess…

Tinh August 4, 2010 at 7:31 pm

Can a blogger like me be affordable to get this? No way!

d3so August 5, 2010 at 12:12 am

I wonder if John can afford it ;)

Nigel Chua August 5, 2010 at 8:53 am

Me too me too…wondering the same. Haha. =p

Online College Courses August 5, 2010 at 4:55 pm

It all depends on how much John REALLY makes…since he stopped posting his revenue income each month…not really sure.

Shabbir August 5, 2010 at 9:15 pm

At 40k per month it will be 300 month’s of earnings.

ZK @ Web Marketing Blog August 7, 2010 at 3:27 am

I am sure his earning increase in many folds.

He added new sites and new ventures as well.

PPC Ian August 8, 2010 at 4:24 pm

I bet John can afford it! Like ZK said, he has many other ventures. Just one small example: Standout Comments, an ultra cool plugin that I use on my blog.

Carl Coddington August 4, 2010 at 7:35 pm

That is just way too much money for anything. Beautiful house though :)

Online College Courses August 5, 2010 at 4:56 pm

Any relation to Matt Coddington?

ZK @ Web Marketing Blog August 7, 2010 at 3:29 am

@ Carl

If you want to buy such kind of awesome home than you will have to go for that much amount money.

Jamie Faidley August 4, 2010 at 9:12 pm

Sweet pad with a great view, but just a touch out of my price range!

d3so August 5, 2010 at 12:14 am

Out of most peoples price range.

ZK @ Web Marketing Blog August 5, 2010 at 6:53 am

Yes … but these kind of homes and life style can be motivational for many people.

Insurance Izzy August 5, 2010 at 9:55 am

Yeah doesn’t it just motivate you to blog more? And get enough traffic and income that you too can own a waterfront mansion?

Online College Courses August 5, 2010 at 5:03 pm

I wonder if those with the actual money to pay for it, would spend it on it…my hunch is that they would spend it on things that would potentially make them more money…probably online.

d3so August 4, 2010 at 10:23 pm

Definitely a nice party pad! I would hate for it to get broken into with all those glass windows ;)

Irish Garden Home August 5, 2010 at 12:14 am

Yes, and imagine all the insurance fees you have to pay for it. SY

Online College Courses August 5, 2010 at 5:04 pm

John should rent it out for a night and host a jc.com party there…how bout it John?

Irish Garden Home August 8, 2010 at 10:56 am

Great idea, I wonder what the rental cost for a night would be, but then, on the other hand, what a splendid mansion to hold the ultimate affiliate networking event in, SY

Tej Kohli August 4, 2010 at 10:41 pm

I want to Buy …. Its Very Cool House to Live

ZK @ Web Marketing Blog August 7, 2010 at 3:33 am

Yes that’s the dream of every people.

Nabeel | Create Your First Website August 4, 2010 at 10:47 pm

The house looks beautiful. But you are right John, not very family friendly. The walls are of glass? Do you guys think that is a good or bad concept?

d3so August 5, 2010 at 12:10 am

It has it’s plus and minuses. The view is great but without blinds or curtains privacy could be a problem. Also, it depends how durable the glass is.

Insurance Izzy August 5, 2010 at 9:51 am

It would have been perfect if they installed that glass that has the electricity running through it, so you flip a switch and it darkens. Or one way glass :)

ZK @ Web Marketing Blog August 7, 2010 at 4:01 am

Come on Glass is not the problem …

There are many other options for the glass problem … you can easily avoid that.

Irish Garden Home August 5, 2010 at 12:15 am

Depending on how much window cleaners charge in that area ;-) SY

ZK @ Web Marketing Blog August 7, 2010 at 4:03 am

If any person can afford such kind of home that for him window cleaning charges will be no problem.

Online College Courses August 5, 2010 at 5:05 pm

It’s super modern with sleek lines and corners…just my style :-)

Evoire August 5, 2010 at 2:48 am

At 3% that will be 360k in commission for agents. Wow. No wonder he pays for this review, John.

Online College Courses August 5, 2010 at 5:07 pm

This was a review…damn, I missed that…lol

John Chow August 5, 2010 at 7:53 pm

No this was not a review. However, if Jason sells the because of this post, I am expecting a big gift!

ZK @ Web Marketing Blog August 7, 2010 at 4:04 am

Lollzzz :)

Dan Lew August 5, 2010 at 4:31 am

What a bargain price!, took 4 years to design and build and just the view is worth 12 mill alone!

Pete Carr August 5, 2010 at 5:46 am

Ok I’m in. Where do i sign?
Only kidding.
Beautiful house. A little pricey though.
Pete

ZK @ Web Marketing Blog August 23, 2010 at 3:28 am

Beautiful house and I think this one deserve that much value.

John Burnside August 5, 2010 at 5:50 am

This is a beuatiful house. Haven’t quite made enough to have it yet but i’m getting there!

John Burnside August 5, 2010 at 5:50 am

This is a beautiful house. Haven’t quite made enough to have it yet but i’m getting there!

Online College Courses August 5, 2010 at 5:06 pm

Don’t worry, you’ll be there soon…cough…cough…

:-P

TrafficColeman August 5, 2010 at 5:52 am

That house looks good, but I think I’ll stick with my shack I have now…Its not bout to fall down just yet..

“TrafficColeman “Signing Off”

Paul August 5, 2010 at 7:01 am

Beautiful home. A little bit out of my price range but, still a really nice house. I can see why it is so pricey though, Caprica is a beautiful area.

Bradley Nordstrom August 5, 2010 at 8:01 am

The view in the front of the house inside is awesome.I hope I can afford it when I grow up.

ZK @ Web Marketing Blog August 7, 2010 at 4:05 am

Best of luck my little friend …

Nigel Chua August 5, 2010 at 8:58 am

It’s ultra beautiful! Would say it’s worth every single dollar for the home…now when can i afford this… perhaps within 10 years…would there be more inflation by then?

Wayne John August 5, 2010 at 9:16 am

WOW! Amazing home, I can only hope at this point that I’ll someday have enough money to live and party like a rock star. This house would be top of the list!

I wonder what the taxes would be like…outrageous no doubt. Still, looks worth it!

John@Retail Fixtures & Store Displays August 5, 2010 at 9:48 am

Very fancy dream house could i imagine

Insurance Izzy August 5, 2010 at 9:53 am

I wonder if some uber fan will buy the thing at full price just to own the Caprica house… I guess we’ll see.
It’s definitely gorgeous. Love those views and all that open space. I can definitely see why you wouldn’t want to live with your family there though :)

Online College Courses August 5, 2010 at 4:50 pm

Are you house hunting John? Didn’t we just see another open house you went to not too long ago?

John Chow August 5, 2010 at 10:20 pm

As a matter of fact, I am house hunting. But in the US, not Canada.

Insurance Izzy August 6, 2010 at 9:59 am

Woot woot! I’m guessing California? But I could be wrong :)

Irish Garden Home August 8, 2010 at 10:59 am

Why do want to live in the US? I mean, if I had the choice between Canada and the US, I would choose Canada without any question! SY

John Chow August 8, 2010 at 4:49 pm

There are more investment ops I. The US than Canada right now.

PPC Ian August 5, 2010 at 10:46 pm

All I can say is WOW! I love the blown glass flowers on roof! Like the Bellagio!

John Chow August 6, 2010 at 9:03 am

The glass was made by the same person who made the glass for the Bellagio.

PPC Ian August 8, 2010 at 4:30 pm

That is too cool! I visited that artists gallery with my wife, the new one at City Center.

Bsnl broadband August 6, 2010 at 12:46 am

All i can say im really love it for whole structure ,great post john

biofinity contact lenses discount August 6, 2010 at 2:39 am

Hi John,

Jesus christ. who on earth can afford it? Oh yeah, Bill Gates or Warren Buffett but I don’t think they need this. They are donating it to charity.

Who else? Well, John Chow, himself. Just by blogging,he can afford this toy. For the rest of us, possible if we are earning like John.

pulloverknittingpattern August 6, 2010 at 10:17 am

john,nice blog but who can afford
this house $12 million dude its alot higher.

Andrew August 7, 2010 at 5:47 am

The red chair must be the “thinking chair” e.g. a place to think about what to blog about next. Maybe Darren (ProBlogger) would be interested in purchasing this place for a place to hang out when in Canada?

Brian P August 7, 2010 at 7:29 pm

I just found my dream home!

recliner ottomans August 9, 2010 at 11:42 am

Beautiful views. Maybe someday I’ll go after that price range….but I’m not quite there yet! :)

Stop Ringing In Ears August 9, 2010 at 10:05 pm

Most of us can only dream of living in a $12 million home. That’s a very nice house!

elsa @ help stop snoring August 10, 2010 at 7:02 pm

Definitely a dream house. My mom would be so happy if I bought this..lol!

ZK @ Web Marketing Blog August 23, 2010 at 3:25 am

Yes he is quite active these days … But I think his camps venture is not doing well … because we did not saw many review post from him or from Michael.
