Just beyond the bright, expansive windows of this 4,061-square-foot Martis Camp home is an impressive landscape of native plants and soaring pines. And beyond that, it’s just a two-minute stroll to the Tennis Pavilion and its neighbor, the Parks Pavilion. A touch further by car and you’re at the ski lodge that – under summer skies – transforms into the Aerial Adventure Park. Complementing that sense of closeness is a home that stirs connection, best epitomized by a two-way fireplace bringing a simultaneous glow to the great room on one side and the kitchen and dining area on the other. The firepit out front also welcomes that sense of gathering as does the back patio. The nook just off the kitchen is ideal for morning coffee chats and evening board games and the bunk room will resonate with the sound of little voices telling grand stories.
This 5-bed/5.5-bath home is the collaboration of Sandbox Studios and Gallagher Construction. Floors are hickory and cabinets alder. There’s a media room, a four-bed bunkroom with a separate room to romp and play, and a primary suite with an oversized bath, a fireplace and decks on both sides of the room. Appliances include Viking (range, refrigerator, wine fridge, microwave) Miele dishwasher and Whirlpool (washer and dryer). The back patio features a hot tub and built-in barbecue. The kitchen countertops are quartzite and the exterior is a bold, handsome wire brushed ranchwood.
All these amazing details and the convenience of access to so many of the amenities that make Martis Camp – as Barron’s noted – “Best Place to Own a Second Home in Tahoe.”
