Timber Kings cabin in Big White selling for $9.2 million
9,000 sq. ft. cabin designed by Pioneer Log Homes was built from salvaged old growth cedar
If you're in the market for a log castle, you're in luck.
A 9,000 sq. ft. log home built with salvaged old growth cedar logs is for sale in Big White, B.C. for a cool $9.2 million.
According to realtor Justin O'Connor with Sotheby's International Realty one of the owners' grandfathers used to build castles in Germany and they ordered the home as a custom build.
"They wanted to build a Christmas village castle that would light up the slopes of Big White," says O'Connor. "They wanted something that would be around for generations."
The recovered cedar logs are between 500 and 1,800 years old, said O'Connor. He says it took 27 logging trucks to ship them from Williams Lake, where the house was built, before it was shipped to its final destination.
The home only has four bedrooms, but O'Connor says the master suite is 1,400 sq. ft.
He says the owners are selling the home because they travel around the world and don't get to spend much time at the custom-built cabin.
O'Connor says given the home's proximity to Kelowna, B.C. which has direct flights to key U.S. destinations, he expects it will have a lot of interest.
