Description & Details of Akasha
4 Bedrooms, 6 Bathrooms, 8 SleepsWhistler, BC is one of the world's most coveted recreational destinations. Consistently rated as the best ski resort in North America, Whistler boasts the largest ski area on the continent. Akasha stands in the midst of over 200 marked trails. When the snow melts in the late spring its time to take out the golf clubs, tennis racquets, mountain bikes, hiking boots, kayaks, and ... dancing shoes! Not only is Whistler a gorgeous natural setting with unlimited opportunity to indulge in a healthy lifestyle, the Village offers gourmet dining, world class music and entertainment, and a cosmopolitan shopping district. Whistler now attracts visitors all year- round. Akasha takes in the entire valley view from a commanding height. Prestigious Sunridge Plateau is the highest development on the mountain, yet it's just a five minute alpine walk from Akasha to the Village centre. Vancouver is just an hour and a half away along the Sea to Sky Highway. Staying at home, however may be the best option. With its perfect balance of tradition and technology, Akasha's comfort, warmth, and truly magical atmosphere is wonderfully seductive. In ancient folklore, a red cedar is the gateway to Akasha, the spiritual seat of higher realms. Today a four hundred-year-old cedar is the central feature in the most inspired home in Whistler, British Columbia. Rising powerfully from the central foyer and encircled with a stairway of hardwood and custom wrought iron. The cedar is only the first of many delights to be discovered at Akasha a rare jewel, the most creative home on the mountain. Akasha's timeless design includes hewn coastal timber tipped with copper facing, fireplaces with log mantles, granite and river rock surfaces, and custom millwork. Every piece is an original. Every detail has been considered from heating the decks, the hearth, and outside benches, to the lighting of the landscaped pathways, to the state of the art safety and security systems. Nestled in the mountains, Akasha's innovative space flows as naturally as the nearby alpine streams, taking full advantage of natural light and views. Akasha's spa includes an indoor lap pool and steam room, watched over by forest spirits carved into totems by First Nations artist Rick Harry. The pool is fed by a stream cascading over sculptured rock, and opens onto heated flagstone decks with a hot tub carved from stone, all with views of the valley below. The crown of Akasha is a copper-roofed perch atop an ancient cedar. A three month search for the structurally specific cedar lead us from the far north to the Fraser River where this ancient giant was rescued from being milled into lumber. The cupola takes in panoramic views of the village, Whistler Golf Course, Blackcomb Mountain, and nearby Tantalus mountain range.
