$2.4-million "mansion" gets Vancouver buzzing about real-estate prices

    1 of 1 2 of 1

      Vancouver real-estate prices have shot into the stratosphere. Earlier this week, analysts at Bing Thom Architects showed there’s basically not a home left in the city that costs less than $1 million, and that most properties on the West Side are already valued at more than $2 million.

      To help locals ease the pain of realizing that many will likely never afford a home where they grew up, a "fun" game has developed online where Vancouver residents trade absurd property listings.

      Today’s find comes from Toronto resident Colin Horgan, who posted the listing above with the suggestion there’s a chance Vancouver is drunk.

      The house priced at just under $2.4 million was built in 1930 and is located in Point Grey.

      Chris Turner, a freelance journalist based in Calgary, picked it up from Horgan and shared a few of the cozy property’s more attractive qualities.

      “Your $2.4-million Vancouver mansion awaits!” Turner wrote on Twitter.
