West Vancouver is often cited as one of the wealthiest municipalities in all of Canada, and was the only municipality in the Lower Mainland (besides the University Endowment Lands) to have an average home assessment value in 2023 of over $3M -- $3,111,000, to be specific.
With that in mind, a home listed at 6446 Marine Drive might feel like quite the steal, as it's asking just $2,488,000. And despite its lower-than-average list price, the home is a glistening, heart-capturing gem.
The three-storey home was originally constructed in 1966, with six bedrooms, four bedrooms, 3,101 sq. ft of living space, and a two-car garage, all across a 6,318 sq. ft lot with views of the iconic Howe Sound.
Nearby amenities and destinations include Tantalus Park, which is literally across the street from the home; Whytecliff Park, which boasts a scuba diving site; the Gleneagles Golf Course, which is just a 12-minute walk away; and the Horseshoe Bay Ferry Terminal, which provides convenient access to both the Sunshine Coast and Vancouver Island.
Making the home even more of a steal is that it's seen at least $500,000 in renovations over the years, meaning the property's age is truly just a number.
On the main floor is a 20' x 14' living room and a 14' x 10' family room -- both of which are equipped with elegant fireplaces -- on one side of the main foyer. On the other side of the foyer is the open-concept kitchen and dining space.

Courtesy of the aforementioned renovations, the kitchen is as modern as it gets, with commercial-grade appliances and chic finishes all around. The floors, windows, and doors are all also new, proving no detail was overlooked in the abode's refreshing.
Our Favourite Thing
This chef's kitchen is truly a marvel. All the appliances are commercial-grade and stainless steel, the cupboards are all minimalistic and modern, and the central island is sprawling, and topped off with a slate of marble. From morning coffee through to evening cocktails, we could linger in this space -- with guests or solo -- all day long.
The upper level of the home, which is actually slightly bigger than the main level, houses four of the home's six bedrooms, including the 20' x 12' primary bed that's equipped with an ensuite bath, as well as an extensive 28' x 7' walk-in-closet that extends nearly the width of the home. (In fact, the closet is also accessible from the hallway!)
The two remaining bedrooms will be found on the lower level, as will another large living space that's equipped with its own full-sized kitchen, dining space, and living space.
The lower and main levels of the home also offer direct access to large patio spaces, complete with tremendous views of Howe Sound. These are the perfect places to entertain friends and family, as well as soak in all the beauty that West Vancouver has to offer.
