|Sarawak Chief Minister Abdul Taib Mahmud’s daughter and her developer husband are proud owners of Ottawa’s second most expensive house, worth RM28.3 million.The palatial home belonging to Jamilah Hamidah Taib and her husband Sean Murray is ranked No 2 among the most expensive private residences in the Canadian capital, according to the Municipal Property Assessment Corp. |
“The couple’s house at 688 Manor Ave in Rockcliffe Park, completed late last year, is worth C$9,609,000 (RM28.3 million), assessors have decided,” daily Ottawa Citizen reported in on Jan 19.
The annual property tax bill alone for the house is C$100,000 (RM293,000).
According to the daily, the most expensive Ottawa home belongs to Marlen and Michael Cowpland, which is valued at C$12,535,000 (RM36.8 million)
Jamilah and Murray are high-flying business people - they both own Sakto Corporation, a major real estate operator in Ottawa.
They also own Sakto Development Corporation, a multi-million dollar development and construction company in Ottawa, while Jamilah is the sole director of Sakto Investment Corporation.
The couple’s newly-built mansion, which is clad in marble along with some 20 chandeliers, is in the post suburb of Rockcliffe where 24 of the top 25 Ottawa homes are located.
“Well-heeled neighbours were impressed when the couple showed off their new home at a recent house-warming and Christmas party,” said the daily.
According to one guest, the mansion looks like an old English manor.
“The Murray-Taib home has cathedral ceilings throughout the ground floor, and about 12,500 square feet of living space. It takes up much of the lot size of less than one acre,” added Ottawa Citizen.
