Singer Sarah McLachlan Lists Her Custom Retreat In Canada

Singer-songwriter Sarah McLachlan has listed her retreat in Whistler, Canada, for sale at about $10.1 million or 13.5 million in Canadian dollars.

The mezzo-soprano and pianist was involved in the building, design and finish selections for the custom house, which sits on 4.3 acres in the Stonebridge area of the British Columbia resort town.

A boulder-lined stone driveway leads to the stone- and wood-clad lodge-like residence with a gracefully arching roof. Evergreen landscaping blends into the natural setting.

An open-plan living and dining area features a massive stone fireplace, vaulted wood ceilings and walls of glass. The great room even has plenty of space for a grand piano.

Built two years ago, the gated home has 8,300 square feet of living space including a home theater, a wine room and a gym. The eat-in kitchen features an island, ceiling beams and a long window along one side of the room. There's also a detached guesthouse.

Views take in snow-capped mountains and pine tree tops.

McLachlan, 47, has made a name for herself as a pop, rock and ballad singer. She won two Grammy Awards in 1997 for her album "Surfacing" and picked up a third two years later for her performance of "I Will Remember You."

Her most recent album, "Shine On," was released last year. McLachlan plays several string instruments, including guitar and harp, as well as keyboards.
