Call it the house that yoga built.

Lululemon founder and former chairman Chip Wilson is the owner of B.C.'s most expensive home, according to B.C. Assessment (CBC), with a Kitsilano property spread over three lots with a value of $54,206,000.

From the Corporation's story:

Last year, Wilson's 30,600-square-foot Point Grey residence was under construction and number two on this list. The two-storey house was custom built in 2008 with seven bedrooms and nine bathrooms.

The 10 most expensive homes in B.C. were all valued over $23,000,000.

In November, the outspoken and often controversial Vancouver yoga-wear mogul was also named to Canada's 100 richest list from Canadian Business, finishing second in British Columbia behind James Pattison.

Wilson's net worth was estimated at $2.56 billion.
