Squamish house description

And welcome to your home away from home... a true getaway. Located in Squamish BC (1124 Plateau Crescent, Squamish BC V8B 0C2) – the outdoor recreational capital of Canada.

New for the summer of 2014 we are adding another bedroom and bath to the home. This house has 3 bedrooms upstairs with the kitchen attached to the living room; a great open concept living space. As well, there is a large living room downstairs that is available for larger groups that can double as a fourth bedroom. I have opened up this space and now have another adjoining room attached to this downstairs living space. I will have beds in the one room and convertible beds in the second living room. As well there is a gas fireplace being added to the downstairs living space. Further - there will be access to 3rd bathroom that will have a spa style shower. We are very excited about these new additions.

The entire upstairs living area and bedrooms have been renovated with beautiful fir flooring except the bathrooms - the main bath is cork flooring and there is heated slate in the en suite.
Our main bath is warm and inviting with slate accents and an old growth tree slab vanity. The tub is ready for soaking and has air jets to help you relax after a strenuous day out playing in the mountains. The master bedroom has its own wonderful en suite that has heated floors, slated shower with a seat so you can sit and enjoy the rain shower that falls from above. Dim the lights and just let go!
The other two bedrooms upstairs are also good sized and tastefully decorated.

The kitchen is all butcher block with a classic country feel with all the needed amenities. And feel free to use the BBQ, slow cooker or the rice cooker for your favorite meals. Lots of pots and pans and a blende – everything you need to enjoy the spacious kitchen space. And while doing dishes is for the dishwasher provided, the sink is attractive enough to inspire at least one by hand washing. As u wish!

The living space upstairs is an open concept with the fir floors and the artfully stoned fireplace taking center stage. The mantel piece is another piece of old growth wood and adds to the fireplaces allure. Cozy in and enjoy! Lots of wood is available to keep you cozy and warm. Also a guitar and a djembe drum for the musically inclined. Need a lesson. I have a neighbour who is a great guitar teacher! Just let me know!

Need to stay in touch? Use our wireless access anywhere in the house.

Outside, look across the street onto green space and beyond – feeling the power of the chief – the world’s second largest granite monolithic rock – starring at u through the trees. Across the street and around the corner there are wooded paths that will allow you to enjoy a morning walk that will lead you to rivers and streams. There is also a neighborhood playground for kids with swing ropes for your more adventurous youths. And if you have a four-legged friend that wants to share in the mountains... by all means… feel free. While we don’t have a dog or any animals here we are open to well behaved pets and can help you with local dog sitters and walkers if need be.

If you like the idea of exploring the mountains by bike, there are numerous logging roads and for the more adventurous - an endless supply of world-class single track to keep you fit and engaged. And of course rock climbing just 10 mintues walk from our front door to smoke bluffs park and 5 minutes drive to the Chief parking lot.

More of a green thumb? Feel free to enjoy our in season organic garden that will offer you fresh vegetables such as cherry tomatoes, cucumber, bell peppers and even some wild blackberries. For those visiting in September - get ready to enjoy the sweet tasting apples off our organic apple tree or the fruits from our black plumb tree.

Any thing else you need? Let us know. I have worked many years in the service industry in both Whistler and Squamish and am well connected in all facets to help you make your stay most enjoyable.
We are very close to the site of the new world class Sea to Sky Gondola and very excited to have that so close for our guests and their families.

For those looking to enjoy Whistler’s world-class resort we are 40 minutes to the Creek Side Gondola. As well, for backcountry enthusiasts we are very close to some great terrain. And of course… ‘sled necks’ - feel free.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2004

                  About the owner: Thanks for stopping by. My name is William. I have lived in Squamish for 9 years after being in Whistler for 10. I chose Squamish because of the community aspects, all the great activities it has to offer to keep people smiling and happy and its proximity to Vancouver and Whistler. I have various activities that keep me busy work wise but i tend to be drawn to social entrepreneurial pursuits. For example, I have my real estate licence and am working to start a community funding (not funded;) real estate business. I also have a small but growing and fun(except when its not) alternative fuel business. We 'up-cycling' waste vegetable oil from local restaurants into a safe and reliable fuel source. I currently have around 10 people who use 'Transphat' as their fuel source. I have two vehicles that run off of wvo. One hard done over 125K. Good clean fun. (ok not always clean). I also do some freelance writing/photography and moonlight in Vancouver's commercial acting scene as well. Even with that i am a huge traveler and tend to spend a few month's a year on the road experiencing new cultures around the world. I have spent the last many years renovating this home with the help of friends and family and I am happy and pleased that it feels like a beautiful country style home. I like getting the feedback on how the place just feels good. In my eyes... mission accomplished. Come on by. You'll like it here. Buena onda! Will

                  Why the Owner Chose Squamish:
                  Squamish has it all. It has been deemed the out door recreational capital of Canada for a reason. Big mountains with the community feel - - all the activities one could ask for from golf to kite boarding to rock climbing to a selection of beautiful lakes within a short drive to just hang out at and swim in. As well, it is only 40 minutes away from two incredible locations. One being the city of Vancouver, the other being Whistler. Squamish offers a small town feel in one of the most powerful settings. For young and old - its a breath of fresh air!

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  Our home is tucked away from it all in a very quiet neighbourhood. This is not a cabin but is quiet enough it feel like it some times. We have great views and lots to choose from locally as well as easy access to a world class city in Vancouver as well as the well known tourist area of whistler - just 35 minutes to the Creekside gondola. The best of both worlds! And from the house's door step there is so much to do and see. With world class mountain biking, hiking and climbing literally at your back door and just a short dribe to the world's 5th ranked kiting spot - seriously - what else needs to be said!
