Listen closely at night and you may hear laughter in the upstairs room down the hall. That’s where the bunkroom is, where the stories begin. Stories created by young imaginations gazing out to the nocturnal prowl of snow cats coursing up and down Lookout Mountain’s ski runs. This 6-bed, 4.5-bath home is conducive to the power of gathering. Beneath a ceiling of hand-hewn wood trusses that resemble the galley of a mighty ship is a great room with views of Northstar California’s Lookout Mountain to the back and an impressive fireplace ahead. The kitchen, with its large counter that drops down to a table ready for pancakes and Yahtzee, commands an immediate view of this warm scene. There’s a well-windowed dining room left of the kitchen while off to the right and down the hall is a media room with views to the large, wide-sweeping veranda with views of the ski hill, a sight shared by an adjacent private bedroom. Upstairs, five bedrooms are comfortably spaced out, including one with a sunny reading area and a bed that comfortably tucks into its own cocoon of a nook. The primary suite’s deck welcomes the morning sun while the large bath offers a fine end to the day.
The touches throughout this 4,557-square-foot home are first rate. Cabinets are knotty alder in the kitchen, countertops are made from copper and granite, and ceilings and panels are Montana Ghost Wood. The stunning floors are made from character grade hickory. Speakers are installed throughout. And kitchen appliances include Wolf, Sub-Zero, KitchenAid, Samsung, and a GE Profile wine cooler in the pantry. On the expansive patio and deck facing Lookout Mountain is a hot tub, barbecue, covered dining area with fireplace, and a firepit. Finally, just a short walk away is Martis Camp’s amenity core including the Family Barn, Fishing lake, Park Pavilion and the Sports Fields, destinations that provide ideal fodder for those young minds who tonight will be sharing stories and laughter in the upstairs bunkroom down the hall.
