Discover the captivating charm of Akasha, where ancient tradition and cutting-edge technology seamlessly merge to craft an enchanting ambiance. Rooted deep in age-old folklore, Akasha embodies its spiritual essence through the regal red cedar, acting as a portal to higher realms. Nestled within the prestigious Sunridge Plateau of Whistler, this iconic estate commands a sweeping vista of the entire valley, effortlessly blending natural beauty with contemporary opulence.
Akasha Estate stands as a testament to meticulous design, leaving no detail unattended. Its focal point, an awe-inspiring 49-foot tall log sourced from the pristine forests of Gold River on Vancouver Island, boasts an impressive 452-year history. Rising majestically from the central foyer, a spiral staircase, meticulously crafted from hardwood and custom wrought iron, pays homage to the mountain's rich heritage, reminiscent of the cable from Whistler's historic "Red Chair" lift. The cedar log merely marks the beginning of the enchantment that awaits discovery at Akasha, a truly rare gem among homes, radiating unparalleled creativity.
The lower level of Akasha beckons with the allure of an entertainer's paradise. Here, a 30-foot swim-jetted pool, graced with a breathtaking waterfall feature and accompanied by a steam room, bestows the luxury of a private spa experience. Totem poles, intricately carved by First Nations artist Rick Harry, depicting forest spirits, stand sentinel over this aquatic haven. The pool draws its waters from a stream cascading over sculpted rock formations, leading to heated flagstone decks and a stone-carved hot tub, all overlooking the valley below. A delightful wine cellar and tasting room provide the perfect setting to showcase and savor your cherished collection.
The expansive outdoor spaces invite you to immerse yourself in the embrace of nature and the wonders of the great outdoors. Relax in the sculpted hot tub, savor the melodies of chirping birds while grilling on the barbecue, or relish a morning coffee on one of the captivating deck spaces. Akasha embodies privacy, convenience, breathtaking views, and uncompromising quality—a true embodiment of mountain living.
Prepare to embark on a culinary journey in the gourmet chef's kitchen, where every detail has been elevated to new heights. Custom cabinetry, a wood-paneled Sub-Zero fridge, a stainless Viking 6-burner gas range, and granite countertops grace this epicurean haven. The expansive island serves as a breakfast counter for early risers, while the elegant dining room table sets the stage for formal occasions. Patios adjacent to the dining area and den offer al fresco dining options during the warmer months, accommodating up to six guests.
The open-plan living room, adorned with cathedral ceilings, showcases a magnificent two-story stone fireplace, seamlessly blending the rustic charm of a wood-burning hearth with the modern convenience of gas assistance. Adjacent to the living room, a thoughtfully designed office space, complete with custom cabinetry, provides an ideal sanctuary for remote work.
