Think of this as a resort within a resort. Set in Whistler, this secluded estate has a private lagoon and its own waterfall. An array of adventure toys—four snowmobiles and multiple kayaks and canoes—are thrown in for good measure. Steer one of these kayaks down the River of Golden Dreams—complete with trout—on the one-acre property and into Alta Lake, or simply sit back and relax next to the fire pit or soak up the park-like setting from the hot tub and covered patios complete with gas heaters.
Found behind its own gates just minutes from the base of both Whistler and Blackcomb Mountains, the seven-bedroom, eight-bathroom, 5,000-sq.-ft. home was built in 2004. With an exterior that showcases extensive use of rock and wood, it blends in with its natural surroundings, where banks of old growth fir trees form a perimeter against the backdrop of mountain peaks.
The interior features vaulted ceilings throughout the home with vertiginous beams and walls of glass. The massive chef’s kitchen—complete with two islands, expansive counter space and built-in appliances—overlooks the dining and living rooms where a soaring floor-to-ceiling stone surround wood-burning fireplace takes centre stage.
As listing agent Maggi Thornhill explains, “The architect’s vision was one of intimate and welcoming spaces, perfect for family gatherings.”
Designed over three storeys, there is geothermal heating and air conditioning along with nine fireplaces (three are outside) to keep you toasty in the winter. An added bonus? The home comes fully furnished.
For those ski and boarder friends who are guaranteed to be coming for a stay, an attached nanny suite and a separate guesthouse, not to mention parking for 20 vehicles, should meet the demand.
