STUNNING LIONS BAY WEST COAST CONTEMPORARY Howe Sound on the Sea to Sky Highway. This space is an affluent, edgy and diverse community of 1500 people with an equally amazing diversity of architecture. Situated 30 min from downtown Vancouver and 60 min from world famous Whistler ski resort it is the ideal location for business and leisure. Whether it is hiking the coastal mountains, skiing Whistler or the North Shore mountains, boating or fishing, Lions Bay has it all. Set amongst lush gardens a foot bridge leads you into this stunning cottage with breathtaking westerly ocean and island views Upon entering, the Zen reveals itself as the ceiling suddenly soars and light pours revealing levels both up and down. Each room is surprising and delightful; one with skylights to view the stars, one with a patio for a private moment, a kids nest like an indoor tree house filled with games and toys, an outdoor sky-deck with cedar hot tub to soak away days spent hiking and skiing, a small gym for your regular work-out, a library to binge a book, an intimate bar and cozy gas fireplace. The entertainers’ kitchen invites chefs and guests alike. The master bedroom and ensuite bathroom spa with untrammelled views is the pièce de résistance and sets an unbeatable benchmark in luxury. The owner’s art collection from all over the world adds the feel of a gallery. No expense has been spared to fuse classy existing oak flooring in the dining and living rooms with new grey slate in the kitchen and Shou Sugi Ban carpets on the stairs and lower floors. All kitchen appliances are recent and high-end Bosch and LG. Importantly, this beauty balances aesthetics with clever functionality. A high-efficiency Trane heat pump heats and cools and is centrally and/or remotely controlled by Nest thermostat. The master bedroom and bathroom and lower suite have new heat heated floors also controlled by Nest. Heat is retained by energy-efficient triple pane German windows and doors. Smart lighting and door locks also tie into the Nest. On all levels, the view of Howe Sound is so impressive it is as if the house itself created the perfect picture strictly for your enjoyment. Ferries and sail boats keep eyes glued to the constantly changing waters as the Squamish River meets the Pacific Ocean. The outdoor deck with BBQ and fire-pit draws you out to watch the hummingbirds hover and breathe in the scent of the towering Cedars and Douglas firs below you. A spell of wonder overcomes your senses at the vista before you. The home, views, lush gardens, hot tub and Swedish sauna make this masterpiece the perfect sanctuary for young families, down-sizers and international investors alike.
