Pro Golfer Jack Nicklaus’ Beaver Creek Home
The American golfer known as “The Golden Bear” lists his Colorado mountain home for $8.5 million
Known for his powerful drives, legend Jack Nicklaus is a household name in the golf world. Having helped design courses throughout Colorado and the globe, he’s a well-recognized pinnacle of the profession. After 18 major wins, Niklaus retired to enjoy a ski-in, ski-out cabin off Beaver Creek Ski Resort.
Nicklaus’ 8,600-square-foot log home now sits on the market for $8.5 million, listed by Tye Stockton of The Stockton Group. The rustic retreat features four levels with exposed log beams throughout and a charming stone fireplace.
Clad with stone on the exterior, the cabin blends with the landscape. Roughly 20 miles from his self-designed course, The Club at Cordillera, Nicklaus enjoyed a convenient round in Vail Valley.
Fit for hosting a mountain soiree, the home sits on 1+ acre of land and has six bedrooms, six bathrooms and an indoor sports court. Decor-wise, the cabin is a perfectly preserved ‘80s time capsule, which wouldn’t be complete without a vintage conversation pit. Hanging antler art on vaulted ceilings adds to its charming character.
A unique stone banister along the staircase off the dining room creates a grand entrance and exit from the upper level. Fantastically preserved, the logs hold sturdy. Built to amplify the natural light, large windows line the kitchen ceiling and living room walls.
Although no longer in Beaver Creek, the 82-year-old retiree still finds himself on the golf course continuing to play for fun. Skiers and golfers alike will appreciate the cabin’s optimal local for year-round enjoyment.
