1233 Tecumseh: a modern architectural masterpiece in First Shaughnessy
The culmination of an impeccable design collaboration – with architecture by The Airey Group, interiors by HB Design, and landscaping by Paul Sangha – this new-build world-class estate offers a rare opportunity in one of Vancouver’s most esteemed and established neighbourhoods.
Masterfully blending the existing 1922 heritage mansion facade with significant new extensions amidst some of the most beautiful grounds in the city, the brilliant juxtaposition of contemporary and traditional styling – paired with some of the finest luxuries and workmanship available – delivers a truly iconic residence.
Spanning 11,567 square feet of interior over an expansive open floor plan comprised of seven bedrooms and eleven bathrooms, including the auxiliary building for guests, this ultra-luxury home offers all the features one would expect from an offering of this calibre.
This estate is made for entertaining on a 24,972 square foot lot of manicured grounds, creating a West Coast indoor/outdoor lifestyle like no other. A walk-out covered resort-style terrace, an infinity swimming pool, and a fireside entertainment area with an integrated BBQ and wet bar inspire endless possibilities.
Floor-to-ceiling windows, over-height ceilings, and glass doors bathe the exquisitely finished home in natural light, contributing to an ethereal effect. Each principal living area offers spectacular views of stunning landscaping, while mountain and city vistas can be enjoyed from the north side.
The generously proportioned open-plan kitchen boasts a French La CORNUE Chateau Supreme oven, stove, serving island, and an adjacent chef’s kitchen for easy entertaining.
The scale of the grand dining room reinforces the home’s focus on being a gathering place. With room for many guests, it overlooks the beautifully landscaped gardens, a Koi pond, and a second outdoor fire feature. As the home reveals itself, fire and water become recurring themes in this carefully curated living environment.
Moving towards the main formal living room with a focal fireplace, design cues on the floor signify the transition from contemporary to traditional architecture. Also located on the main floor is a private den, expertly tailored with the home’s customized walnut millwork, repeated throughout the residence.
Moving upstairs, a sensational primary bedroom with a fireplace, a five-piece en-suite bathroom, and an extensive walk-in dressing room offer views of the city and the North Shore Mountains. Four additional bedrooms – all complete with en suites – are ideally situated for family and guests throughout the home.
The home’s lower floor is equally impressive, with the most notable feature being a full-wall Koi aquarium, complete with a large lounge viewing area. Additional luxuries include a media room, temperature-controlled glass wine and cognac cellar, billiards room, wet bar, large gym with spa bathroom, massage studio, art gallery corridor, and the convenience of an elevator to all three levels. Two additional bedrooms on the lower level are ideal for a nanny or housekeeper.
Other notable advancements include ELAN-integrated lighting, security, power shades, air conditioning, and a music system that sets the standard for an active and sophisticated lifestyle. The fully gated exclusive property provides a discretely positioned garage for three vehicles.
Rarely does an offering of such quality, location, and attention to detail become available – a luxurious privilege reserved for those who demand the very best.
