This amazing 112 year former BC Electric Power Station features ultimate luxury in a serene area just 45 minutes from Vancouver. Chef's kitchen, theatre room, fabulous entertaining areas inside and out, in one of the most unique buildings which has been lovingly restored to the highest standards. Parties and Events are not currently allowed in BC.

The space
Come and enjoy one of the most beautiful historic residences in the country! Completely restored and renovated to the most exacting standard this former BC Electric train sub-station has been converted to a luxury residence, reminiscent of a modern castle.

All amenities are provided including a fully modern chef's kitchen, dining and living room level.

The optional main (entry) level also has its own full kitchen and dining area, and features a 130' high definition TV, online games center and ping pong area.

This estate is the quintessential entertaining villa, with 3 massive private deck spaces . Numerous activities are just minutes away. Biking and hiking trails adjoin the property, and world class fishing, swimming, boating, and windsurfing are nearby. (Chilliwack, Cultus and Harrison Lakes)

A 5 star public equestrian center is also within walking distance and offers horseback trail rides nearby.

For the kids the indoor Castle Fun Park is less than 5 miles away and can entertain children for hours.

Our estate is situated on 2.5 acres surrounded by forest, yet within 10 minutes of Highway 1 and a full variety of shopping including Costco. A large number of great restaurants featuring local and ethnic dining options are close by.

The main home and pricing for it includes 5 comfortable bedrooms, each with a king or queen bed, and a queen sofa bed. and 3.5 bathrooms. Extra beds in the same rooms for children staying with parents and siblings can also be arranged at a small additional cost.

If you are booking more than 12 persons we will also be including the theatre room which has 2 king sofa beds and an additional full washroom. Otherwise this area is not included in our standard rate.

We have an elevator to all floors which is large enough for a wheelchair and attendant. It also makes moving your luggage and supplies very convenient.

This is truly a luxury home and setting for those wanting a unique, memorable experience.

Though we live in a very safe area please note that in addition to a monitored alarm system we have outside and inside security cameras. The interior ones monitor the entrances but are physically disconnected during guest stays.

For smaller groups of up to 4 persons the 1600 sf theatre suite is available at a lower cost. See "BC Electric Substation - The Powerhouse Suite"

My wife Sanja and I are from Vancouver, BC, Canada, and enjoy spending as much time in Arizona as possible, but with the arrival of our first granddaughter we are not here as much as we would like to be. (Which is why we have our home on Airbnb.) We try to be sure that every guest truly enjoys their stay and keep all of our home immaculately maintained and equipped. We also insure that if we are not available to greet our guests that we have good friends here to meet you and orient you to the home. We feel "only the best is good enough" so we hope that you will find your stay will exceed your expectations.
