Readers who were following me on Twitter today knew that I went house shopping in West Vancouver’s Whitby Estates. The Estates are located on a heavily sloped mountainside that offer spectacular panoramic city and ocean views. While touring one of the homes, I took a TwitPic of the view with my iPhone and got a bunch of replies back asking for more information on it.
The house in question is located at 2415 Hudson Court. It has 6 bedrooms, 8 bathrooms, 7,000 square feet of living space and sits on an one acre lot. The house came on the market six months ago with an asking price of $5.95 million. That was before the world hit a financial wall. The current asking price is $3.48 million, which sounds like a steal for a 7,000 square house on an one acre lot on Whitby Estates. However, with the way the market is going, you never know.
At $3.48 million, I’m pretty sure the builder is losing money and is trying to get out. The landscaping is not done and it’ll be up to the new owner to finish it. You care to take a guess at how much it cost to professional landscape one acre of land? The answer is in the video.
