In Vancouver you can get a 50-year-old teardown on a postage stamp-sized property for millions, but head to Abbotsford to find wicked deals like this $8.8 manse that once belonged to Nickelback frontman Chad Kroeger.
This 20,135-square-foot behemoth in the Bradner neighbourhood has six bedrooms and eight bathrooms, a screening room, massive walk-in-closet (for all your black t-shirts), and even a hockey rink.
The style is very ornate and wood-heavy; convene with dozens of your closest friends for an epic feast under huge chandeliers hanging from exposed beam ceilings. Take a dip in the stone-surround pool with waterfall, or watch a horse give birth in one of the four (yes, four!) birthing stalls included in the onsite barn. This is country living to the max, baby.
Or, as the listing realtor puts it: "This home is the epitome of luxury and design with far too many features to list." Uh huh.
This palatial Abby pad has been a tough sell to-date; Kroeger sold about four years ago and the current owner has not been able to unload it since.
The current listing of this home has been marketed for over 250 days, and that's after the home was taken off the MLS(r) last year before being re-listed in February this year.
Rumour has it Kroeger dropped a cool million remodelling his former B.C. home.
Let's take a tour, shall we?
Or, if you prefer Kroeger to give you the tour...
