About the Property

House -5 Bedrooms - 5 Baths - (Sleeps 22)

With pleasure, we welcome you to
Crescendo: a world-class home of unparalleled excellence:
classic elegance ... like never before.

Crescendo is not merely a chalet, it’s a fortress! At about 5200 sq ft, Crescendo defines “luxury,” and every aspect was designed for practicality and for comfort.

Crescendo is a 5 bedroom 5 bathroom home (6 bedroom if using Rec Room as a bedroom, too). Although Crescendo has enough fixed and movable beds to sleep 22, our intention is to comfortably sleep 15. Crescendo is perfect, then, for a multi-generational family gathering, or for 2 to 3 families to vacation together. As such, to better accommodate your unique needs, several of our spaces may be configured in very different ways.

Three of our bedrooms are dedicated wholly to that use: the Master Bedroom & the two Guest Bedrooms. The Theatre and Game Room are our flexible bedrooms, meaning that the rooms can easily serve as being both entertainment areas and private bedrooms. While cleverly designed and hidden, the beds in both of those rooms are custom-made and permanent. Also, the bedding/mattresses are of the same exceptional quality as the dedicated bedrooms.


The bed/bath configurations may be found elsewhere on this site. Note, though, that even when not including the use of any of the sleeper couches, Crescendo has 14 separate beds (1 King, 5 Queens, 8 Twins). We additionally have various portable beds that can be setup upon request. These include cots and air beds for adults, portable cots & sleeping bags for toddlers (up to about age five), and a Pack 'n Play for an infant.

Almost all of Crescendo's bedrooms have their own private ensuites. The master ensuite, though, is especially sweet. Not only does it boast a two-person steam-shower, but the two-person jetted tub overlooks the Great Room, providing views to the fireplace, to the ski slopes, and to the Monashee mountains.

While Crescendo can’t lay claim to creating the Monashee Mountains, we can lay claim to capturing it. The unprecedented panoramas through the Great Room’s twenty-eight foot floor-to-ceiling windows are truly breathtaking. From virtually every room, in fact, your eye can feast endlessly on awe-inspiring beauty: a beauty that remains the foundational ingredient to your realizing the depth of tranquility that can be experienced at Crescendo.

Practical elegance is another way to describe Crescendo, and that description extends also to its SmartHome features. Whether you’re technologically savvy or technologically challenged, you’ll be intrigued by the intuitive nature of Crescendo’s home automation systems. When you arrive to Crescendo, merely touch “arrive”, and the home awakens. Key lighting guides you through each room, and the fireplace and whole-house XM music automatically activate setting the ambiance while you settle in. You’ll enjoy experimenting with the touchpanels in each room, through which computer-integrated lighting, audio/video, and climate-control are all at your command.

Sixteen amplified zones allow music to be localized or distributed throughout the entire house (garage and outside decks, inclusive). While XM radio is provided for you, Crescendo can shake hands with your iPod or iPhone, allowing the system to read, display, control, and distribute your personal collection as well.

Non-Skiers? No Problem!
Staying at Crescendo is like being at a private lodge. Skiers and non-skiers both rave about Crescendo’s entertainment options, which is why Crescendo is enjoyed by guests even outside of ski season. Crescendo’s Media Room, for example, is outstanding! The movie screen is 110”, with 7.1 surround sound (not to mention two 12” subwoofers). More than 1100 movie titles are at your fingertips, literally. They can be reviewed by scrolling through their electronic jackets projected onto the screen, and controlled, of course, via the two touchpanels in that room (yes, you’ll find a customized remote controller, as well).

Fitness-Inclined?
No problem with body image here! Crescendo is equipped with 2 unique high-end fitness systems: the PowerTower and the SwimGym. The PowerTower was designed for high performance functional sports training (and clinical physical rehabilitation). Crescendo’s SwimGym equally adds a novel dimension to recreation, to exercise therapy, and to sports medicine. It’s non-aerated system creates an underwater current for stationary lap swimming.

Our Signature Dish
Clearly the main course at Big White is the 25 ft of champagne powder that is served at Big White each year. We have told by our guests, though, that Crescendo’s signature dish is, without doubt, our indoor-outdoor pool/Jacuzzi.

Special Events
Crescendo is the perfect venue for family or Corporate retreats, for weddings, and more. Crescendo’s expansive ceilings and open-layout combine to make Crescendo warm and inviting: whether the event is small and intimate or over 100 strong. Also, Big White’s setting, of course, is wholly magical.

Coming to Kelowna for Golfing or for the Wine Festival? Crescendo can accommodate you and your golfing buddies (or multi-generational families).

As an aside, we are actively involved in the Min Pin Rescue Service, where we foster Min Pins until a good home is provided for them.

Location

Car: Not Necessary

Other Snow Activities: Snowmobiling, Snow-Limo, Cross-Country Skiing

Golf: Crescendo is an incredible home to host a group of golfing buddies. Extremely convenient to have the entire group under the same roof. World-class golfing is nearby, and at the end of the day Crescendo becomes a hub for relaxation and entertainment.

Summer: Big White is now open during the summer months as well. See their website for planned festivals and activities. Hiking, Guided Nature walks, and more are open 7 days per week. For those who only want to hike down (or not hike at all), a Chair Lift to the peak is open on the weekends.

Mountain Biking: Many biking trails have already been cut into the slope. Enjoy those now at your leisure. Numerous trails also available across the road from Big White, through some of Canada's finest National Forestry. Look, too, for Big White's announcement of when they'll have one of their chair lifts modified for carrying bikes up the hill, along with onsite bike rentals and equipment.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: Dr. Mitch is a Forensic Neuropsychologist, who specializes in the assessment of children and adolescents who have specialized needs and/or who are involved in chaotic-intense-traumatic-critical- situations. Known for the comprehensiveness of his investigatory assessments (Psychodiagnostic, Psychoeducational, Neuro-Cognitive), he is often called on to be the impartial Independent Examiner in juvenile, family, civil, and special education proceedings. Additionally, Dr. Mitch is part of the nationwide (and Southern California) Miniature Pinscher Rescue, where he fosters Min Pins until their forever families are found. He couldn't resist adopting two of his own, Jax & Jake, photos of whom may appear on this site.

Why the Owner Chose Kootenay Boundary E, BC, Canada:
It's about the Snow, about the People, and about the Property. At Big White, it's all about the snow. Consistently, there is more champagne powder at Big White than at any other mountain I have experienced. The people of Kelowna are genuine and honorable, and the Aussie influence at Big White is electrifying. Crescendo itself? Simply stated,Crescendo is second to none: in its location; in its amenities; and more.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
What can I say here? Read our reviews; search our native website (SkiCrescendo). Crescendo is everything and more than what is stated and what the photo gallery illustrates. We have additional videos, also, on our YouTube site.
