Nicklaus North 5
Whistler is renowned for the variety and quality of its architecture. Few resorts in the world have an equal array of spectacular homes. This home in a prime position on the Nicklaus North golf course is a outstanding example of a Whistler original in the style of a nineteenth century Western/cowboy ranch.
With 5 ensuite bedrooms including a master suite that occupies the entire top floor, this is one of the best rental homes in Whistler for 10 people, and one of only a handful of homes with 5 ensuite bathrooms. It is also designed and decorated with an wonderful flair with extensive use of distressed wood, paint effects and authentic Western/cowboy artefacts. The centrepiece of the living room is Whistler's largest fireplace, which has a full 30 feet of towering ledge rock.
Entry is into the ground floor, which has 4 ensuite bedrooms as well as a spacious mudroom. Each bedroom has a queen bed and two have private patios. A grand staircase leads up to the spectacular great room. One one side is the meticulously designed kitchen, hand-crafted to create the ultimate dude ranch kitchen, with distressed wooden cabinets, distressed paint surfaces, extensive wooden countertops, feature panels containing herbs and spices for display and an array of ultramodern appliances. This kitchen is a talking point among all our guests, who sit on the original saddles mounted on bar stools to admire the cook's efforts.
You move from here into the great room, dominated by the massive stone wood-burning fireplace. An array of comfortable sofas sits around the fireplace, and at the other side there is also a 42 inch plasma HDTV.
The large dining table is to one side and at the other side are a couple of additional leather easy chairs for reading or relaxation.
Stairs lead upstairs again to one of the most spacious master bedroom suites in Whistler. Occupying the entire top floor of this home, this suite has a fireplace, sitting area, large king bed, office area and spectacular bathroom with large bath tub, separate shower stall, double sinks and beautiful distressed paint cabinets. Truly a haven for those lucky enough in your group to be occupying this bedroom.
