This rambling home in Abbotsford, British Columbia offers an outstanding amount of space. It is a ten bedroom home that sits on over 20 acres and at 42,767 square feet it is the largest home to ever be listed in Canada and the largest home on record in British Columbia. Construction began way back in 1997 (and the planning started in 1994) and is still ongoing. It has details like 45-foot ceilings in the foyer, an elevator, five fireplaces, geothermal heating and a tunnel out to the pool and cabana area. It features more different types and colors of wood than I have seen in one house in a long time. According to the Great Estates website it first hit the market in early in 2005 and the $12.5 million CAD listing is a record asking price for the Fraser Valley region of Greater Vancouver. It seems to be a bit of a hodgepodge of styles and design influences but if you need lots and lots of room this could be your dream home.
