After the guests and kids have shuffled off to their bedrooms for the night and the kitchen goes quiet, you have a difficult choice to make: do you step outside and fire up a s’mores over the last embers in the circular fire pit; do you settle into a book alongside the fireplace on the second level walkway; or do you draw straws to see if it’s to be a night under the stars in the hot tub or a soak in the pink granite tub just steps from the master bed. Such are the conundrums this 6,412-square-foot Martis Camp estate presents, an elegant, Tahoe lodge-like home with billiards loft, four fireplaces, and a terrace of vivid stone that wraps three-quarters of the way around the home and features views of the 4th green, 5th tee (just steps away), Sawtooth Mountain, and pristine forests. The terrace also has heated/covered dining and benches of stone that encircle a large firepit that’s ideal for storytelling. Inside, the kitchen with the long, bending counter commands views of the dining room with a wall of windows, and the great room with its wide, stone fireplace. Winter sun pours into this picture nearly all day long. There’s a wet bar in the hallway across from the media room with its own granite fireplace, large screen tv, and access to the patio and hot tub. Nearby is a bedroom with its own terrace and the master bedroom with its alluring bathtub and fireplace. Dominating the upstairs is an open 4 sided walkway that gazes down to the great room, as well as billiards, seating areas, deck with fireplace, and several bedrooms with a variety of views, including those that overlook the sod and flowered roofs. A private, expansive guest house (or rec room/rumpus room) with kitchen, bathroom, dishwasher and deck, is situated above the three-car garage.
Within this 7-bed, 7.5-bath home are features like rustic European ash flooring, alder wood doors and trim, custom cabinets, and natural limestone slab bath countertops. There’s Lutron home lighting, radiant heat with individual room control and handsome ridge line sky lighting. The exterior is stunning as well. Hand-hewn siding is redwood shiplap, light fixtures are custom ironwork, and the landscape is nothing short of superb.
