Photos: This is what $23 million will buy you in Vancouver right now

It has a library, a massive primary bedroom and "nanny's quarters."

With Vancouver's housing market so hot, the most expensive homes in the city are priced quite high.

For example, this eight-bed, 12-bathroom West Point Grey home (described as a "luxurious mansion") is going for $22.68 million right now. With .88 of an acre at 4778 Drummond Dr., it's neighbours with the famed "billionaires' row" on Belmont Avenue and fits the bill.

The home has a variety of fancy aspects, from an Italian-style fountain in the yard surrounded by what appears to be cherry trees, to views of English Bay and the North Shore Mountains, to a five-car garage, to an award-winning kitchen that won a few gold Georgie Awards (the annual local homebuilders' awards).

While it might not be the castle from Beauty and the Beast, it does have its own library with plenty of built-in shelf space for favourite reads, and there's a separate home theatre for movie nights.

And the primary suite (served by an in-house elevator) is the entire top floor.

There's also a rec room, wet bar, and even a two-bedroom "nanny's quarters."

The house was last sold in 2014 for $15.85 million and is currently assessed at $19 million (it was ranked the 118th-most expensive residential property in B.C. in 2024).

For comparison, there's currently a 120-hectare wine estate in the Chianti region of Italy that's going for about $18 million.
