It’s one of the early large homes in the prestigious British Properties of West Vancouver.
With its steeply-pitched roof and overlapping gables, the Tudor-style home exemplifies an English country manor.
Built in 1939, time must have surely left its toll on the four-bedroom, six-bath home at 236 Onslow Place.
As the listing by Angell, Hasman & Associates (Malcolm Hasman) Realty Inc. notes, the residence will “require a complete restoration and mould remediation to bring it back to its former glory”.
While the 5,562-square-foot heritage home needs a lot of TLC (tender, loving care), it “offers unlimited potential to recreate this most prized historical estate from an era gone by”.
B.C. Assessment placed the 2021 value of the property at $2,947,000, most of it for the 0.9-acre or 0.3-hectare land.
The two-storey custom home was valued at $234,000, and the land, $2,713,000.
The listing also notes that the residence sits on a “beautifully landscaped estate, backing directly onto the Capilano Golf & Country Club”.
Based on tracking by real-estate sites fisherly.com and Zealty.ca, the property came on the market on April 20, 2021 for $4,490,000.
It sold after eight days on April 28 at 4.2 percent below its listing price.
A buyer took 236 Onslow Place for $4.3 million, and now, as the seller’s listing agency advertised, has a a lot of work to do to “recreate this most prized historical estate from an era gone by”.
