This stunning log chalet, named Abardair, was at one time one of Canada's most expensive homes ever to have sold. 10 years old and still looking like new, the breathtaking architecture and interior design make this one of Whistler's very finest residences ever built. Absolutely no detail was spared in its construction and guests are always astonished by its sheer beauty , style and character.
Living in the house is an experience in itself. Spend time in the entertainment room, playing pool with cocktail in hand whilst watching sports on TV, listening to a song on the jukebox or even playing karaoke.
Walk through to the open plan living area and relax in front of a real wood fire on either of the huge sectional couches or hang out in the kitchen on bar stools whilst having some apres snacks. Listen to your ipod music on the house sound system or relax to some live music courtesy of the self-playing piano.
Walk past the dining area out onto the patio and go for a dip in the natural rock pool style hot tub or toast some marshmallows on the open fire whilst the steaks are cooking on the barbecue.
In the summer, there is also a putting green on the artificial lawn beside the house and in the garage, there's table tennis, foosball as well as a mini-gym with an elliptical trainer and barbell weights & rack for those wishing to stay strong.
Downstairs, the theater is the perfect room to relax in after a tough day on the slopes. Sit back with a glass of wine whilst relaxing in the massage chair and watch a bluray on the huge 100' screen.
There are 5 beautifully appointed bedrooms all with luxurious linens. The Master Suite occupies the entire top floor with a high vaulted wood/log ceiling and a stunning bathroom that includes a jetted circular tub and large walk-in rainfall shower.
On the main level, there is a separate guest suite within the house which includes an open plan living room & kitchen, laundry, bathroom and bedroom (with a full/twin bunk) - we use the suite as the kids area and let the kids eat/play/sleep/watch tv etc in here.
Downstairs are 3 further bedrooms. One has 2 twins/1 king bed and an ensuite bathroom. The others have a queen bed and twin bunks with a shared bathroom. The home theater is down here too and two twin sized mattresses with full bedding can be set up in this space to accommodate extra guests if needed.
During the winter, skiing is a quick 5 minute downhill walk to the gentle bottom part of the Dave Murray slope which takes you down to the Creekside gondola. In the main village, you can expect to queue for 30 mins then stand on a gondola for 25 mins to get up the mountain. Here in Creekside, you can normally walk straight on the gondola and have your skis on in just 8 mins.
The ski home trail brings you back to the street literally 4 houses along.
There are very few homes in Whistler that can match the facilities of Abardair and there are none that can match the attention to detail and sheer beauty of it. This really is one of Canada's very finest homes.
