If disaster strikes and you and 14 of your friends need to use the loo at the same time, which home in Metro Vancouver is the best place to be at?
Adam Major, managing broker of Holywell Properties, got you covered.
But first of all, Major and Holywell Properties are not selling this home, which currently holds the title of most bathrooms.
The luxury property is on the market for nearly $10 million.
The exact listing price is $9,980,000.
Rather, Holywell Properties operates Zealty.ca, an online real-estate site that features listings, sales, and other information on properties.
To answer the question, the home that is currently on the market and has the most number of baths is 13283 56 Avenue in Surrey.
The mansion has 11 full baths and four half baths, for a total of 15.
What Major finds interesting is that the technology for the Multiple Listing Service or MLS that realtors use to post information only lets agents to list up to a maximum of 12 baths.
“That makes it hard for buyers to know that this house actually has 15: 11 full baths and four half baths,” Major told the Straight.
Major wonders if this incomplete information explains why it’s been taking a while to sell the luxury home, which features views of Boundary Bay.
“That inability to show how many bathrooms there actually are may partly explain why this house has lingered on and off the market for six years without a sale,” he said.
The 11-bed home was listed on January 21, 2015 for $12,880,000. The listing was terminated on May 7 of the same year with a reduced price of $9,388,000.
Other unsuccessful listings were likewise made in the following years and at various prices.
On December 14, 2020, the 16,398-square-foot home came on the market, with Angell, Hasman & Associates (Malcolm Hasman) Realty Ltd. as listing agent.
As of Sunday (January 24, 2021), the Panorama Ridge area home remains unsold after 41 days with its listing price of $9,980,000.
One may wonder about the latest B.C. Assessment valuation of this home.
Its 2021 total value as of July 1, 2020 is $5,948,000.
The home speaks opulence. It has a pool, fireside outdoor lounge, private guest suite, home theatre, massage and spa room, professional gym, wine room, and media sports centre with baccarat and wet bar.
The property “sits majestically” on a “park-like estate” with a gated driveway and manicured gardens.
Likely because of the limitations of the MLS noted by Major, the marketing blurb by Angell, Hasman & Associates (Malcolm Hasman) Realty Ltd. made sure to mention that the home has 11 full baths and four half baths.More
