When Mingfei Zhao purchased the historic Rosemary mansion, his love of TV show Downton Abbey inspired him to restore the home to its 1915 arts and crafts glory.
And now, after spending millions on a renovation, Mr. Zhao is selling the 12-bedroom, 12-bathroom, 11 fireplace house at 3689 Selkirk St. in Vancouver’s First Shaughnessy neighbourhood, which is a heritage conservation area. He’s listed the property, considered the largest heritage house in the city, with an asking price of $27-million. It’s been on the market since early January and has had several parties through.
