The action

The listing was for lot value because the house is derelict and not habitable. Buyers could not enter the house. There is no history of the property being on the market since the 1970s, says the buyer’s agent, Trent Rodney. Mr. Rodney’s client, a family from West Vancouver, can build a 7,000 square-foot or larger house on the lot. Listing agent Malcolm Hasman received multiple offers on the property. The sale completes Nov. 1.

What they got

The one-acre waterfront property on a rocky bluff is in one of the region’s most expensive areas, with ocean views to Bowen Island and walking distance to Gleneagles Golf Course.

It is the largest waterfront property sale in Metro Vancouver, at 40,510 square feet, with an assessed value of $7,282,000. The 5,587-square-foot house was built in 1966 and had no architectural significance, says Mr. Rodney. However, the Beaton residence next door was a midcentury modern gem, designed by Arthur Mudry and built in 1965. That property sold for $7-million in 2018. It was demolished and the lot left empty.

The agent’s take

“What’s unique about this property is its sheer size,” Mr. Rodney says. “Most waterfronts selling today are half the size. That’s over one acre of raw forest, untouched granite outcroppings and 100-plus-feet of coastline for an inspired architect to play with.”

He’s hoping that the former Beaton Residence next door will inspire a thoughtful design for the site. Several architect-designed homes are in the Gleneagles area, Mr. Rodney said.
