Tucked amidst firs, lode pole, and ponderosa pines, this 2-story, 5br/4.5ba rustic chalet in the Nicklaus North Community backs up to the 14th Fairway of one of the greatest golf courses on earth. Just minutes from the charming, euro-style resort village of Whistler, BC, and Whistler Blackcomb Ski Resort, this chalet is the ideal golf/ski getaway for large groups; it sleeps 11 guests.
Nicklaus North is a community of homes centered around the Nicklaus-designed 18-hole golf course. Nestled on the south end of Green Lake, this tranquil, private neighborhood boasts majestic lake and glacial mountain views. Nicklaus North is the first golf course to which Jack Nicklaus gave his namesake; presumably, because it was designed with such reverence for the natural environment nestled between Green Lake and the River of Golden Dreams.
This spacious chalet offers 3,400 sq ft spread out over two levels. Upper and lower living room/family room make this home perfect for multi-family vacations. Four of the bedrooms have ensuite bathrooms; also making the chalet optimal for multi-couple trips, family reunions, ski groups, girls' weekend/guys golf trips, corporate retreats, masterminds, etc.
The convenient location is an easy 5-min drive to the base of the mountain, or catch transit that picks up and drops off right outside the development. Other highlights of this chalet include; an open design chef’s kitchen, a wood-burning fireplace, a gas BBQ, huge deck with Adirondack furniture, lower patio with private six-seater hot tub, balcony overlooking the golf course, serene forest and golf course window views, a mud room for boots/skis/gear, and a 2-car garage. Enjoy WiFi, laundry, central heat/AC, and driveway parking. This chalet has all the charm of a quintessential, rustic, mountain cabin, and convenience to the very best of Whistler.
You’ll love the exposed wood, rustic décor, hardwood floors, large windows, and vaulted ceilings. Comfortable and welcoming, the main floor features a great room with a large, stone, wood-burning fireplace, and several comfortable sofas and oversized armchairs. Details such as a rough-hewn log-pine fireplace mantle and sturdy knotty pine furniture give this chalet an authentic, log-cabin ambiance. After a day on the slopes, come home for hot cocoa and enjoy time with loved ones around a crackling hearth fire.
In addition to this main floor living area, the lower level of this two-story home has a cozy family room with wall-to-wall carpeting, a built-in entertainment center with TV, plush loveseats, and oversized arm chairs the color of mountain lupines. This is a great spot to cozy up for family movie night.
The bright and sunny open-design kitchen has a wall of windows overlooking the green boughs of a pine forest. Enjoy polished hardwood floors, French cream color fine cabinetry, granite countertops, and stainless steel appliances including a large fridge, gas range, oven, dishwasher, microwave, and double basin sink. The large kitchen island has granite countertops, a bar sink, and breakfast bar with stool seating for three below stylish, minimalist pendant lights. Perfect spot to sip your morning late!
There’s plenty of space in this chef’s kitchen to prepare home-cooked meals that will nourish your whole group with local cuisine. For breakfast, whip up pancakes with pure Canadian maple syrup and peameal bacon. Pack picnic sandwiches for lunch on the slopes. For dinner, bake a Tourtiere, or grill some fresh veggies from the Whistler Farmers Market, as well as salmon and arctic char fish. Sliding glass doors off the kitchen open out to a deck with a large, gas BBQ grill.
Just off the living room is a farmhouse-style pine dining table with seating for eight below a rustic wrought-iron chandelier. Gather for family-style meals and make memories that will last a lifetime.
