There’s no shortage of views to be had at Martis Camp, vistas that capture all that’s best about living in the Tahoe area. But this 5-bed, 5.5 bath Martis Camp home, with its stunning, bright, open floor plan, reminds us that the finest scenes are not always those beyond us but are often those unfolding before us. In the case of this home, that commanding view is commonly found from behind the impressive counter in the kitchen, a perspective that offers an outlook on the abundance of life taking place in the great room, dining room, the distant patio, and the nearby media room. The great room centers around a bold fireplace and tall ceilings with steel beams while the dining room inspires the joys of conversation. Meantime, you have a fine view of the touchdown celebration underway in the media room. Further on, there’s one wing of the home where you’ll find a junior suite with soaking tub and zen garden outside the shower. Also along this wing is a private office, or bedroom with an adjacent bathroom. Stage right of the kitchen is a hallway that wanders off toward a bunkroom, a bedroom, a gym/studio with forest views, and a primary suite with separate office, sitting room, fireplace, and a master bath with access to the hot tub. On the main veranda off the great room, you’ll find covered dining, a barbecue bay, firepit, and views of the trail just yards away that lead to the national forest.
This 4,453-square-foot home is situated on a two-acre lot with a 28,000-square-foot building envelope. Privacy reigns here and the trail leads to, among other places, the Camp Lodge and Family Barn. The lighting/heating/cooling/music controls are all Elan G while appliances include Sub-Zero and Wolf. The media room features a bar and wine cooler. Cabinets are flat panel planked, riffed and quartered oak finishes while countertops are Renoir leathered quartzite slab and Caesarstone.
