This unique Whistler home is a masterpiece of modern design, built to embrace the mountain landscape surrounding the exclusive Kadenwood neighbourhood. Architectural firm Battersby Howat made full use of the sloping site, creating an intriguing building that maximises both privacy and outlook from all levels. The home was featured in Western Living Magazine as a modern day version of a rustic cabin offering plenty of living space, with 5 bedrooms and 4.5 bathrooms. Canted windows and deep overhangs orient viewers to the landscape, creating a sheltered space evoking feelings of comfort by night, yet filling with natural light during the day. Finished in cedar, the exterior compliments the natural textures of the rainforest, with a striking cherrywood door welcoming guests with a dash of colour.
Stepping inside the feelings of warmth and welcome are immediately enhanced. Cherrywood floors and millwork glow, providing colour and texture to balance the minimalist lines of the cabinetry and muted wall tones. Following the Scandinavian modern theme natural elements are incorporated throughout the house, with bathrooms tiled in dark grey stone echoing the granite of the surrounding mountains. The great room on the top floor is glass from floor to ceiling, with curtain-wall windows and massive sliding glass doors allowing the indoors to become outdoors whenever the mood suits. An eye-catching suspended fireplace by FireOrb ensures views of Whistler mountain are never impeded, while the open chef’s kitchen and dining area complete the stylish and functional living area. An office, media room, sunken hot tub and wine cellar are cleverly incorporated into the floor plan, and no expense has been spared on home technology with heated flooring, a heated driveway and full home automation with precision temperature control. A true mountain retreat, one can watch the forest as it changes with the seasons in peace, enjoy ski-in, ski-out access, or take the private Kadenwood gondola to Whistler Creekside and enjoy the dining, shopping and cosmopolitan atmosphere of the world class resort.
