Since opening our doors in 1978 we’ve seen a lot happen in Whistler! Many things have changed over the years from the mountain, to the expansion of the Village, to technology, and especially the properties.
We thought it would be interesting to take a look at just how homes in Whistler have transformed over the years!
Designed by renowned architect Arthur Erikson, this is the oldest property on the list. Built 10 years before our business started operating, we thought we’d look a little further back to show you one of the earliest local properties.
While the inside has been renovated, the structure and style remains the same.
Nestled in the woods of Emerald Estates, this is a classic A-Frame Cabin. With open concept living, neat angles and beautifully crafted wood, this home stays true to its original style to this day.
You couldn’t find a more “classic” Whistler home.
Built in 1979, this Brio home is styled on classic Swiss Chalets of the time. Bursting with character and charm, it is a reflection of how the town was evolving into a world famous ski resort, taking in international influences.
This large Creekside duplex showcases the start of a new style in Whistler, focussing on properties with additional rental/“nanny” suites. One of the few properties on our list that hasn’t undergone a renovation, you can see the inside is still classic ‘80s!
As Whistler grew in popularity and the Village expanded further, the 1990s saw the building of a large number of condo buildings. The Marquise in Upper Village is a classic example, with ski-in/ski-out access and modern amenities in the building.
In addition to condo buildings, the 90s also saw a new wave of modern chalets built around the mountain. This property beautifully showcases the post and beam style of the time, along with large windows and expansive decks to bring the outdoors inside!
Built in the early 2000s, this home is one of a number of luxurious chalets built for the purpose of shared-ownership. Accommodating the huge amount of growing interest in Whistler, these properties offer ski-in/ski-out access and a chance to own a little piece of luxury at a fraction of the price.
This stunning 6 bedroom chalet shows just how far Whistler homes have come, from humble roots and practical cabins, to extravagant mountain retreats! Open living spaces with floor-to-ceiling windows encapsulate these beautiful homes, offering some of the most impressive Whistler views.
This beautiful property was completed in early 2018 and highlights a change in the development of Whistler homes. This BONE Structure home is the perfect example of their signature high performance, energy efficient homes, designed and built using an integrated process inspired by the aerospace industry.
