BCLiving takes you inside one of the most outrageously upmarket real estate offerings in the province

Address: 6187 Mackenzie Street, Vancouver
Price: $4,998,000
Listing ID: R2106758
 
The skinny: Two-bedroom, three-and-a-half-bathroom, 3,637-square-foot house on a 7,748-square-foot lot in Kerrisdale.
 
The bling: Let’s face it: we could all use a little cheering up. So what better way to put on your happy face than by waking up in a home that practically screams “Have a great day”? From the sunshine yellow walls to the key lime carpets, there’s just no avoiding the insistent cheeriness of this place. Forget the antidepressants, throw away the mood-altering drugs… heck: give up the gin. Who needs serotonin supplements when your home does all the pretending for you? I mean, why be sad? The kids have left home, you no longer have a house big enough to lose your husband in for days at a time, and the open plan means you don’t even have to slam the door behind you. It’s positively the most positive move you could make.
 
The hidden extras: Garden (just big enough to require a great deal of your attention), golf course (mercifully close).
