Set on a 0.22 acre property in the ski-in/ski-out area of Brio, known as Sunridge Plateau, this unique lodge is on the market for $16.3 million CAD in Whistler, British Columbia. Developed by Munster & Sons Developments Ltd. in 2000, this 6,855 square foot lodge-style residence, known as Akasha, is available for the first time since completion. The attention to detail is hard to describe as every aspect has been hand built or designed by the unbelievable creators Bonnie and Andy Munster. Next level attention to detail and intention built into a truly unique Whistler home. State of the art roofing system, basalt inside and out, copper accents and an indoor pool with a waterfall and 4 custom totem poles are just a few of the many features. The home enjoys sweeping views of the valley, surrounding mountains and Whistler Village below. Akasha is on the market for $16.3 million CAD with Stilhavn Real Estate Services.

Munster & Sons Developments Ltd. “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 lighting in the pool room is intriguing as well as subtle. It accents the curved ceiling, custom designed of yellow & red cedar to replicate the inside of a giant canoe. The ambiance it creates gives the pool a look of tranquility. The crown of Akasha is a copper-roofed perched 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.”
