This Glass House For Sale In BC Has Its Own Nature Escape (PHOTOS)

You know when you're given a gift that's wrapped so perfectly that you feel guilty tearing it apart? This house is sort of like that, in the sense that it's so breathtaking that it only feels right to admire it like a work of art instead of actually living in it. Not only is this property considered one of the most beautiful homes in Vancouver, but in all of Canada as well.

This West Vancouver home even has its own name - the "Eppich House 2". It was designed by acclaimed Canadian architect Arthur Erikson, which he called his "Most Complete Work", according to Sotheby's

Sotheby's describes the property as a "one-of-a-kind steel and glass home which was custom built by the owners with every detail created to perfection." It's even been featured in magazines, like the New York Times' Real Estate section.

Spanning 1.18 acres, the home is surrounded by nature from all sides. The yard is a tranquil oasis with tons of trees for privacy. 

The glass mansion has an outdoor pool, with steps that take you down to a private "flowing creek". It has 6,000 square feet of living space and curved floor-to-ceiling windows on each level.

The "Eppich House 2" has four bedrooms, three full bathrooms and one half-bath. Sotheby's says that the home comes with all the furnishings, which were designed by Erickson and his team.

Sotheby's has listed the home for a cool $9,988,000. Its West Vancouver location provides convenient access to city life while being far away enough to feel like you've got total privacy.

It's ideal for those who prefer a "quiet atmosphere" and love to spend time outside. There are over 50 parks and a golf course in the area.

 You may not be able to afford the down payment on this iconic house, but you can rent a mansion in B.C. for super cheap with your friends.

If you're in the market to buy, these adorable homes near Vancouver are all listed for under $530,000. In the meantime, you can look at homes like these and just keep dreaming.
