As recently as a decade ago, to build an “Eco Friendly” home was considered to be impractical, or even frivolous as the high cost and generally lower quality of the materials and building practices outweighed the environmental benefits. Today, with improvements in the cost, quality and benefits of eco building initiatives, it is not only possible to have a truly luxurious green home, it is practical and cost effective, too.
1572 Khyber Lane in Whistler is one of these Eco Luxury homes, and it is the only Platinum rated home (by Built Green BC and Built Green Canada Standards) available in Whistler. Built by Schreyer Construction, Ltd., this home boasts more than 3,450 square feet of living space, top of the line Miele appliances, and luxurious finishings. Moreover, its location in the lifestyle and environmentally conscious resort of Whistler, British Columbia, Canada adds to its appeal as this home perfectly compliments its surroundings.
The layout, inner workings of the heating and energy systems, and building materials all serve to make this home truly the best that luxury and Eco standards have to offer. Over the next several weeks, a series of posts on the Eco qualities of this home will be released, right here on the RE/MAX Sea to Sky Real Estate Blog. We’ll show how the design and layout of the home contribute to its “greenness”, how the heating and appliances serve to maintain efficiency and comfort as well as lower operating costs, and how the building and finishing materials contribute to the overall quality and “Eco-Friendliness” of this ultimate luxury retreat. Stay Tuned!
