Whistler Gains New Neighbourhood
This lifestyle community guarantees year-round recreational activities and home sites withmagnificent views.
Welcome to Cypress Place – Whistler’s newest lifestyle neighbourhood – situated on the famed Nicklaus North Golf Course, overlooking the fifth fairway and surrounding coastal mountains.This prime master-planned community is truly a year-round recreational haven, all within walking or biking distance to Whistler Village. The paved Valley Trail system is right outside your front door and offers easy access to Green Lake, Nicklaus North Golf Course and clubhouse, Meadow Park Sports Centre, cross country ski trails and the River of Golden Dreams.
“This is the last chance to purchase a lot in the Nicklaus North community,” says Jason Wexler, development manager with the Burrard Group. “The sunny, flat building sites, which command magnificent golf and mountain views, are now ready and easy to build on.”
This last phase encompasses a selection of 39 single-family-home prime lots with sunny southwestern exposures, ranging from 10,000 to 26,000 square feet. Buyers have the option to design and build any style of home they choose, from mountain contemporary to a traditional Whistler chalet, as long as it complies with the design guidelines. “There is a really nice mix of approved designs right now by notable local designers and architects,” Wexler says, adding that 10 lots have already sold. “Another advantage to homeowners is that the lots are flat, which is unusual in Whistler, where excavation and blasting costs on rocky, sloped sites can cost hundreds of thousands of dollars before you start to pour concrete.”
The Burrard Group is currently building a show home at Cypress Place that boasts state-of-the-art sustainable features such as geothermal heating and cooling, triple pane windows, low-flow fixtures and lighting controls.
It is scheduled to open in the 2011 winter season. For a limited time, with each purchase in Cypress Place, the developer is including a geothermal heat exchanger credit worth $23,000, a free golf membership at Nicklaus North Golf Course, and an option to purchase a parking stall at the base of Blackcomb Mountain.
