The residence was initially listed on the market for over three years with the most recent price being $7.99-million.

Motivated to sell, the previous homeowners went to Lambert and Co., a luxury home auction company, who set the home up for a live auction.

All-in-all, that process took just seven weeks to get the home off the market.

“The sellers were motivated to make a move and they were willing to try a unique process,” said Zach Nielson who’s in business and marketing operations with Lambert and Co.

“We’re constantly trying to find ways to bring the right types of people to these luxury homes. That’s kind of what makes us unique in the market and we take this as promise that it’s going to help the stalled B.C. market get moving again if enough people give us the opportunity to work with them.”

The bidding was open until Thursday, July 25, a week after the bid was initially supposed to close, allowing more bidders to come to the table.
