3802 ANGUS DRIVE, VANCOUVER, B.C.
I just finished uploading this SUPERB SHAUGHNESSY LANDMARK ESTATE for sale, 3802 ANGUS DRIVE, VANCOUVER, B.C.
Designed by renowned local architects Samuel Maclure and Cecil Crocker Fox, “John Hendry House” unquestionably represents one of the finest examples of the Arts and Crafts/Tudor Revival architectural style
in Vancouver which so richly represents Vancouver’s dignified history.
John Hendry house was completed in 1913, during an era of great growth and prosperity, in the new development of First Shaughnessy, created for Vancouver’s elite by the Canadian Pacific Railway Company. The house was built using the finest of materials including first-growth wood from Vancouver’s forests. With rooms of impeccable design and ample proportions, this is a home in the grand style, built for comfortable family living as well as regal entertaining.
The home was originally built for John E. Tucker, President of the B.C. Timber Company, who lived there until 1915 when it was sold to Mr. Hendry. Mr. Hendry was President of the B.C. Mills Timber and Trading Company, the oldest and largest enterprise of its kind in the Northwest. He was also president of Vancouver Board of Trade, he built the Kaslo and Slocan Railway and the New Westminster-Vancouver line, both of which became the Great Northern Railway, he was elected to the council of the City of New Westminster and was a director of many companies including B.C. Sugar Refining Company. It is said of Mr. Hendry: “There is perhaps no representative of important industrial, commercial, and manufacturing interest who had more to do with the material growth, development, up building and prosperity of the country than he.”
This landmark mansion reflects the power and prestige of its dignified occupants/caretakers.
The functional floor plan of the home incorporates 9 bedrooms, 6 bathrooms and 6 fireplaces, and exquisite detailing including fine plasterwork, stone masonry, inlaid hardwood floors, intricate banisters, coffered ceilings, and intricate leaded glass feature windows.
Sitting privately on over .6 acre, the magnificent 12,126sqft residence is located on one of the most prominent corners in the heart of First Shaughnessy, within minutes of South Granville shops and the Vancouver Lawn and Tennis Club.
