The ten priciest properties in the Lower Mainland are all in the City of Vancouver and each one is assessed at more than $25 million, according to valuations released Friday by B.C. Assessment.

Topping them all is the $57.6-million newly built Kitsilano waterfront home of LuluLemon founder Chip Wilson at 3085 Point Grey Road.

Explore the interactive map above to see the highest valued properties in the Vancouver, Fraser North, Fraser South and Fraser Valley regions.

The ritziest residences are more modest elsewhere in the Lower Mainland.

Top assessed properties in Surrey and White Rock came in at $14.8 million and $10.6 million, respectively, while a Richmond acreage on No. 3 road was assessed at $8.8 million.

A swimming pool, curving private driveway and a private trail to the ocean are among the features of this $10.6-million home in White Rock at 13616 Marine Drive. bing.com image.

Burnaby’s top valued home was a 14,456-square foot Buckingham Heights mansion at 7629 Burris St. assessed at $9.4 million.

Langley acreages dominate the list of highest values in the Fraser Valley area, with a 0 Avenue home in southwest Langley Township assessed at $8.8 million, followed by an Abbotsford home on Cassiar Avenue at $8.1 million.

B.C. Assessment statistics released Friday show Lower Mainland property values generally climbed again in 2014 but the gains were more modest outside of the City of Vancouver.

Excluding new growth, the average assessment increases were 7.3 per cent in the Vancouver-Sea To Sky sub-region, 4.8 per cent in the North Fraser area (Buranby, New Westminster and the Tri-Cities), 3.3 per cent in South Fraser (Richmond, Delta, Surrey and White Rock), and two per cent in the Fraser Valley (including Langley, Maple Ridge, Abbotsford and Chillwack.)

B.C. Assessment says most detached houses made single digit gains in most of Metro Vancouver, with up to 15 per cent seen in the Vancouver-Sea-To-Sky area.

Gains were more modest in the Fraser Valley, where homes typically ranged from five per cent drops to five per cent gains.

Property owners concerned about their assessment can contact BC Assessment and if unsatisfied with the explanation can appeal it by Feb. 2 for an independent review.
