8160 Villandry Drive
This 6,379 square foot home, designed by Blaze Makoid Architecture and Erik Christoffersen of the Cotton Mountain Group is the quintessential Martis Camp family estate. With five en-suite bedrooms, this phenomenal home is located on over one acre with majestic views of Big Rock Meadow and the surrounding mountain ranges. With a footprint that seamlessly blends with the natural contours of the site, this home was constructed with minimal grading and tree removal.
Accessed from the lower portion of the site, the design is a simple ‘L’ shape including two wings linked by a double-height glazed entry and stair hall that’s located at the intersection of the two geometries. Resting on a stone plinth, the home provides a cloistered three car parking court complementing a three-car heated garage that’s equipped with a 240-volt electric vehicle charger. The plan also provides for the addition of a two-bedroom guest unit, and includes a spacious outdoor storage room with ample space for recreational gear and outdoor furniture.
High stone retaining walls along the homesite’s highest points combine with a dramatically cantilevered roof that creates a gracious sheltered patio, which features outdoor cooking, dining and seating areas.
The home’s black stained cedar exterior naturally blends into the warm weather landscape, while creating a dramatic counterpoint to the winter snow scape.
Embracing all that’s epic about Tahoe is easy in this epic home, with four outdoor living spaces comprising 1,600 square feet, which include a grass lawn, roof deck with panoramic views, hot tub with mountain views, covered living area with a two-sided fireplace, and a dining and lounge area with a barbecue grill.
Indoors, the open plan great room—which includes the kitchen, dining and living areas—is surrounded by the previously noted outdoor living features, while a den with a full wet bar and ice maker projects beyond the stone base, creating a secluded glazed refuge.
Five en-suite bedrooms include two master suites and a large bunk room that boast four queen size bunk beds, easily accommodating adults as well as children.
A play room / home theatre space leads to the outdoor play lawn, while the home office has breathtaking views of Lookout Mountain™ at Northstar California™—one of Vail Resorts™ most coveted resorts.
Fire places in the great room, den and master bedroom make this thoroughly modern Tahoe estate warm and inviting, while seven skylights and an abundance of glazing make it equally cheerful and bright.
Two laundry rooms and a large mud room with a dumb waiter to the kitchen represent this home’s thoughtful practicality, while its 1,000-bottle wine cellar and Control4 home automation represent its modern luxury.
