Haha, see what we did there? Not only have we found a Regency-style manor for sale, but it just so happens to be located a few towns over from BC’s capital city of Victoria. Located in the town of Saanichton, this decidedly unique home will have you feeling like Jay Gatsby in no time.
That’s because it’s got a massive 17,576 sq. ft. of living space to enjoy, and practically every inch of it has been designed with a ‘stately’ aesthetic in mind. After all, you really gotta go for it if you’re going to be giving your home its own name. Which, by the way, this one already has- Belvoir Hall.
And at Belvoir Hall, you can expect only the finest in classic materials. Marble floors, Italian ironwork, and ornate furnishings throughout the home, from the main entrance to the indoor pool in the ‘conservatory’. But, our top area is undoubtedly the two-story library, complete with custom bookshelves for all the books we want to read, but haven’t gotten around to yet.
The home isn’t just about lounging in palatial glory, not quite. You’ve still got 5 bedrooms for weekend visitors to choose from, and a whopping 10 bathrooms, ensuring that no matter the size of the party, people won’t have to wait in line to powder their noses.
For some fun bonus touches, those collecting old MGs, Jaguars, and Bentleys will enjoy the 6-car garage, while the ones with an affinity for Bordeaux can kick back once a week in the wine cellar. However, the biggest bonus here comes with the land- some 20 acres that are just dying to have a stable of Arabian horses on it. Don’t even ride them- just have them there to relax around.
At least, that would be our plan if we had the $8,900,000 million to buy this home with. Wait a second, we’re writers, we’ll just buy a shack somewhere nearby and become the new owner’s confidante!
