With overseas buyers reportedly scouring West Vancouver luxury real estate for good deals, perhaps this ultra-luxury oceanside home will attract some interest now that it has been relisted at more than $3 million off its original price tag.

Listed in December 2018 for $18.88 million, this breathtaking home was on the market for nearly three months but did not sell, and was relisted by the same agent on March 8 for a still-pricey $15.8 million.

The 2014-completed house on exclusive Marine Drive sits on a low, oceanside bluff right on the water.  Described by the listing agent as “a real James Bond house,” its luxury features include heated outdoor terraces, infinity pool, three firepit areas, and two jet skis included in the price, plus automatic hoist. The colourful listing description imagines “jumping on the jet ski parked at your property or diving into the ocean.” The home also benefits from spectacular, 260-degree, south-facing ocean views.

Inside, the air-conditioned, fully automated house has 5,608 square feet of highly finished living space, with five bedrooms, five-and-a-half bathrooms, an open-concept great room, a family room, an office and a lower-level movie theatre with wet bar.

The buyer had better be seriously into both black and white marble, as there’s tonnes of it in this ultra-luxe home, including in the kitchen, dining room, office, master bedroom and bathroom.

The property may be the priciest new listing of the week, but at less than $20 million, it only makes #15 in terms of B.C.’s priciest MLS listings overall. The top three are still this $39.9 million Chartwell house, followed in joint second place by Michelle Pfeiffer’s remote B.C. log mansion retreat and this sprawling Surrey home, both $28.8 million.

The newly listed Marine Drive property was valued by B.C. Assessment in July 2017 at $11,433,000, and property taxes in 2018 were $26,563.45.
