8437 Golden Bear Drive
Imagine waking up to a view of Whistler Blackcomb on one side and then watching an osprey dive for breakfast on the other. This could be your reality! Located on one of the most desirable cul-de-sacs in Whistler, 8437 Golden Bear is an alpine masterpiece right on the edge of Green Lake. This spectacular home offers expansive, unobstructed lake, mountain and glacier views and quick access to some of the best things Whistler has to offer. This flat, 11,194 sf lot is set beside an estuary that is the confluence of Green Lake—known for its emerald waters/summer boating/winter ice skating/XC skiing—and the River of Golden Dreams, which is a fly fisherman’s dream. This magnificent home is a stone’s throw from hole 15 at Nick North Golf Course and their award-winning clubhouse patio. At your backdoor is the Whistler floatplane wharf, where you can catch a flight and be in downtown Vancouver within 45 mins. This masterfully-built home within Green Lake Estates is also situated along the meandering Valley Trail, on one of its most iconic, photogenic sections, making it a short, easy bike/walk to Whistler Village. The possibilities are endless! Built for entertaining and everyday life, this gorgeous and luxurious 5 bedroom/4 bath home is the whole Whistler package, in addition to its stellar location. On two levels, it seamlessly blends modern conveniences with stunning, traditional mountain features, including beautiful stone/wood finishes, illuminated big timber, radiant heat, and Lutron lights. The spectacular open-concept living area takes full advantage of the sweeping, jaw-dropping views and includes two fireplaces, two decks and a chef’s dream kitchen, with Wolf and Subzero appliances, a pantry, a second convection oven, a bar sink and two additional fridge drawers. On the lake-level, a large recreation/billiards room greets you with a wet bar (with a Fisher Paykel dishwasher and fridge/freezer) and a spacious sitting area with its own fireplace. Currently being utilized as a guest room, the top floor suite has been used as a dedicated home office, with its spacious deck and impressive Whistler Blackcomb views. On the lower lakeside, the built-in hot tub is the ideal spot to land after a long day on the slopes. Relax and enjoy an aprés cocktail beside the outdoor fireplace. The professionally designed backyard is a gardener’s paradise with a beautiful, immaculate lawn and mature beds. Exclusive and coveted, properties on Golden Bear rarely come to market—there hasn’t been one available in over four years. This sensational property is truly one of the crown jewels of Green Lake!
