Smack dab in the middle never looked so fine. That’s what this transitional style 4,088-square-foot Martis Camp home is – a stunning example of mountain architecture centrally located to a long list of Martis Camp amenities. A short drive away is Martis’ own Lookout Lodge and the Martis Camp Express chairlift, providing quick access to Northstar California’s slopes during the winter and the aerial adventure park during the summer. Not even a golf cart is needed to reach the Tennis Pavilion, making this 5-bed/5.5-bath home an all-season experience. Even closer, just across the street, is the Springs Pavilion with two generous barbecue areas that can be reserved for your extended house party; the Pavilion also includes a children’s playground and a bocce ball court for big kids too – as well as a long stretch of rolling lawn – perfect for ball toss with your pup while watching your kids play on the tree fort nearby.
The home itself has a large covered patio overlooking the Springs Pavilion, equipped with a hot tub and firepit where one can view end of day skiers making their way down Lookout Mountain. The great room has a fireplace with walk out access to the patio, adjacent to the kitchen and dining room, creating a perfect environment for entertaining. Also downstairs is the primary suite with quick access to the hot tub and two home offices (one of which has served as a second downstairs bedroom in the past), as well as a private media room and an air temperature controlled wine storage walk-in. A journey up the staircase takes you to the second floor with three more bedrooms, including two large ensuite bedroom/bathrooms, one of which has a walk out patio equipped with a playful porch swing for two. Finally, upstairs is also a kids room with two trundle beds and its own generous ensuite bathroom. And yet there is room to customize the home further since the lot’s allotted square footage has yet to be reached.
A glowing array of woods lends a warmth to this home without sacrificing either technology nor aesthetics, including beautifully crafted kitchen tiles, polished nickel plumbing and appliances like Sub-Zero, Wolf, Whirlpool and an instahot faucet for that afternoon cup of tea. The kitchen countertops are made of Calcutta marble and Caesarstone while cabinets and doors are Superior Alder and floors are oak. Furniture in the great room and dining room have been sourced from Restoration Hardware and have been rarely used due to the homeowners’ extensive travel schedules.
All this in a community that Forbes calls “Possibly the best four-season community in the U.S.”
