Nicklaus North is definitely one of the premier neighborhoods in Whistler. Once you turn off Hwy 99 onto Nicklaus Blvd you will find the views from surrounding mountains captivating. This particular subdivision is affectionately named Nicklaus North after the famed golfer Jack Nicklaus. This golf icon designed the 18 hole golf course encompassing the perimeter of Nicklaus North. The course has been host to events such as the TELUS Skins Game.
In 1996 the first lots went up for sale for a cool $250,000 plus. Today there are elegant townhomes, condos above the clubhouse and gorgeous detached homes sprinkled along the three main streets. There is even a small enclave of Whistler Employee Housing.
Nicklaus North Condo – $425,000 starting for a one bedroom
Englewood Greens Townhomes – $1,125,000
Goldenwood Townhomes – $2,100,000
Detached Homes – $1,600,000 and upwards
The highest sale in Nicklaus North is documented on the Whistler Listing System for $3,400,000 on Golden Bear Place.
Because of the age of the development the gardens and trees that line the main road offer splendid colors of fall that really make driving along the streets magical.
Whistler Air http://www.whistlerair.ca/
For over 25 years Whistler Air has flown people over the magnificent landscape of the Coast Mountain Range… Volcanoes, fjords, glaciers and the beautiful rainforest are just a few of the spectacular sites you can see… They also have scheduled flights into Vancouver twice a day. The entrance to Whistler Air is found at the loop where the Clubhouse sits on Nicklaus Blvd.
Green Lake is fed from the River of Golden Dreams an absolutely gorgeous color of emerald-hues, the lake is nestled along the shores of Nicklaus North. Motor boat friendly and as such wakeboarding and water skiers can be found all summer long. I have also seen wind surfers both in the summer and winter when the lake freezes over. One of the Olympic 2010 videos showcased a lone hockey player on the lake that was filmed randomly one day from a helicopter. The lake has some good fishing with Dolly Varden being reported up to 7 lbs and Rainbow around 2 lbs..
Cypress Place http://www.cypressplaceliving.com/
The last of the Nicklaus North development went up for sale this summer 2010. Located on the opposite side of hwy 99 along holes #3 and #5 some 39 lots priced from $800,000 and upwards. There is a brand new traffic light located at the entrance of Cypress and Nick North which makes crossing the highway much safer. On another note one wonderful thing about Nick North is it gets a lot of sunshine….
