This restored heritage mansion in Shaughnessy is currently Canada's most expensive listing, largely because of the lot value
The house itself has lovely period detailing, such as the mahogany staircase and vast stained glass windows
This elegant formal living room is one of many entertaining spaces in the 10,000-plus-square-foot home
This updated, contemporary kitchen with its high-end appliances and finishes is a happy contrast to the home's heritage

Check out this listing for Canada’s current most expensive property – a combination of three large lots on Tecumseh Avenue, which leads onto The Crescent, arguably Vancouver’s most prestigious address.

One of the lots has a beautifully restored, five-bedroom, 10,000-plus-square-foot house with a grand porte-cochère, amazing stained-glass windows, mahogany staircase, contemporary kitchen and lovely gardens.

Even though the combined lot size of 20,630 square feet doesn’t come close to that of Vancouver’s now-second-most expensive listing, the property is on the market for $46.8 million – making it Canada’s current priciest home, according to research by Point2Homes.

The city’s previous most expensive listing, which we featured in a recent photo gallery, is now ranked as Canada’s third-priciest property. Taking second spot is a privately listed West Vancouver mansion with 150 feet of waterfront, being marketed by luxury agent Malcolm Hasman at $42 million.

The rankings show that Metro Vancouver is home to 13 of the country’s 15 most expensive listings, with all of the top 15 listed above $20 million (#15 is another recent Photo Gallery featured listing).

Outside of Metro Vancouver, only a $30m home in Calgary and a $25 million property on Lake Joseph in Ontario broke into the top 10.
