Glass and steel waterfall home looks like modern masterpiece and on the market for a cool £10 million GBP
By Jack Williams
This stunning abode looks more like a work of modern art than a humble home, as it’s been described as a three-tier masterpiece, a waterfall of steel and glass.
Priced at a whopping £10 million, the four-bedroom, five-bathroom mansion floods with light and is surrounded by luscious greenery.
Located in Vancouver, Canada, it was designed by famed architect Arthur Erickson and was built for Hugo Eppich, who co-founded a Canadian fabrication company.
Erickson designed the 5,287-square-foot home in 1979, and construction began in the late 80s.
Many of the furnishings in the home were Erickson-designed and then manufactured by Eppich’s company.
Across the three tiers, floor-to-ceiling windows accompany the likes of wood ceilings and chrome pillars, creating a modern, open look.
The home – 1056 Groveland Road – also includes a pool and sits on 1.2 acres of private land, not visible from the road.
Eric Latta, the listing agent for Sotheby’s International Realty, said: “The buyer of this home will be someone who appreciates a fine iconic piece of artwork which is completely unique.
“It is really like owning your own private museum.
“All the furnishings which are also part the complete work designed by Erickson were also manufactured by the Eppich family to exacting specifications.
“It is a truly unique landmark home recognised globally for its significance.
“There are no concerns of someone tearing the house down as it is built to last generations due to construction.
“We have had some global interest on the property to date.
“It is a very unique piece of artwork for a very discerning buyer.”
