Vic's Pics - January

3102 St. Anton Way, Blueberry Docks, Whistler || $25,999,000

This house is located in the exact spot that I lived in a hippie shack from 1982-1987 and without a doubt is the finest piece of waterfront land in the whole valley. Killer sunsets, ice skating on Alta Lake, close proximity to the town and skill hill, and tucked away from the north wind; there is not a more beautiful spot to sit by a fire on a cold clear winters day.  The house is built by Kindred Construction, a well-known and respected multi-unit construction company. Dick Reid the president of Kindred is also famous for building incredible buddhist temples around the world. Need a say more. This house is an auspicious oasis.

3366 Osprey Place, Blueberry Hill, Whistler || $4,500,000

Situated on the very quiet and private Osprey Place, with views across the golf course and up Whistler and Blackcomb mountains. This is a very well built traditional ski house that has great renovation potential. The post and beam interior allows for a completely flexible floor plan. All you speculative builder-renovator types in this market, will appreciate the neighborhood, its proximity to town, lake and ski area.

40241 Aristotle Drive is truly a well-executed modern home. the combination and mix of design element is contemporary and perfect and includes special features such as a Cor-ten fireplace and a private separate revenue-generating suite. You can ride your mountain bike right into the backyard of some of the best mountain biking in the world. A big time banker once told me “I believe in investing in high quality real estate” ... and this is high quality real estate.  This house in UBC endowment lands would be well over 7M.

13 Bracken Park Way, Brackendale, Squamish || $1,039,000

With a full warranty in super quiet sunny Brackendale, this is so much house for the least amount of money. At 3500 sq/ft, the price per square foot equates to $296 per sq/ft!  This house would cost $375 per sq/ft to build at current building costs plus the cost of land at $600k, this house would cost $1.9M to buy the land and build the exact same house in today's market.

Again, you couldn’t replace this house at today’s building costs for what they’re selling this house for.  It has a massive well-designed kitchen, perfect for entertaining with an auxiliary building sitting proud on a knoll overlooking the ocean.  Currently used as dining space… this could be used for anything; an artist's studio or 4th bedroom? This house is not a family home, but perfect for an empty nester, a beautiful get-away in the heart of Sea to Sky adventure land. The views here of the Howe Sound are unbeatable.

If you're interested in any of these properties or have any questions about buying, selling, building or renovating in the Sea to Sky, then please call or email me at any time.
