This Whistler residence is more work of art than building, and is without equal in the Sea to Sky Corridor. Envisioned by the owners and brought to life by architect Brent Murdoch builder Glen Lynskey, the multilevel home was a finalist for the award of Custom Single Family Residence for the prestigious Georgie Awards. Inspired by the rugged landscape of the Coast Mountains the owner’s used the profile of the Stawamus Chief Mountain to form the lines of the house, echoing the unique outline of the granite monolith in elements including interior doors and the stonework of the outdoor fireplace. No expense was spared to source unique and visually stunning wood, rock, glass and metal finishes to capture the raw and elemental nature of the mountains within the walls. Within the structure local and exotic materials create contrast, with locally sourced Brohm stone and basalt pairing with Pennsylvania Bluestone and Beaumaniere French Limestone, while edge grain fir from British Columbia harmonizes with specialty timbers including Brazilian Cherry. Stainless steel accents and appliances add a sharp, modern edge and are a unifying force throughout the home.
The interior is simply breathtaking. Stained glass windows and door panels by renowned glass artist Brian Baxter provide jewelled flashes of light that change throughout the day, with the same colours incorporated into the handmade floor coverings. Every living space has been created with precision and purpose, from the master suite with treehouse view to the sunken living room with purlin and beam ceiling and the wide front deck built to capture all day sun, while custom furniture fashioned by master craftsmen compliments the elegant lines and materials of the building throughout. The dining area is surrounded by glass on three sides and opens onto a wide Bluestone terrace with sculptural outdoor fireplace - a grand space in which to entertain guests in all seasons. The practical aspects of the building have also been attended to with care, with a chef's kitchen boasting multiple islands and prep station, high end audio and lighting systems throughout, elevator access to the ski room, ample storage and additional floor and heated exterior heated terraces and driveways. Located on a secluded lane in the exclusive Benchlands neighbourhood of Whistler with a private ski-in from Blackcomb Mountain and close proximity to Whistler Village, the home is perfectly placed to enjoy the best of resort life.
