When it comes to finding the ideal outlook on life, some prefer a lofty perspective while others like to keep it more down to earth. Such is the lovely debate between fans of decks and patios at Martis Camp, that one community that embodies the best of the Lake Tahoe luxury real estate for sale world. In most cases, the discussion of which is best is moot: fact is, you’ll almost always find homes that present viewpoints from both patios and decks, features that take in the finest views of this four-season Lake Tahoe community.
Just beyond the front door of many Martis Camp homes, it’s common to encounter an expanse of glass before you – typically beyond the great room — with views that you can drink in from your deck or, depending on the home’s elevation, the patio. Those views are thoughtfully placed to frame the finest sights to behold from each homesite – Lookout Mountain, Martis Valley, the Carson Range, the Pacific Crest and a variety of fairways, greens, parks and trails being the usual objects of affection.
A walk around the community reveals patios and decks emanating from all points of the home. At ground level, the patio often includes firepits, covered/heated dining areas, barbecue bays, hot tubs, and water features that flow their way through immaculate gardens and forests. There are homeowners who prefer to have these patios facing the morning sun, an inspiring way to start their days. Others see it as the ideal afternoon/evening gathering place for cocktails and connections. And then there are those who see to it that their home offers patios that face both directions.
Decks are equally impressive, or – as many attest – even more magnificent. Many of these decks wrap nearly the length of the home and tout the same amenities as patios. It’s an ideal setting for fans of combining hot tubbing with stargazing, which explains why it’s popular to see a deck reaching out from one or more bedrooms around the house. They’re also considered handy extensions of media rooms and dining rooms. Construction materials run the gamut, with patios often fashioned from stone and decks typically built from wood.
Lastly, whether you choose to enjoy your mornings with a cup of coffee from the deck or sunsets with a glass of wine by the firepit on the patio, you’re sure to enhance the living experience that makes Martis Camp so renowned. In addition, you’re likely not far from all that separates this community and that explains why Martis Camp stands out in the North Lake Tahoe Luxury real estate market.
