Consider this Martis Camp home a brand new book. A hard-bound, riveting novel that’s a classic in the making, not a single page sporting a single word. Yet. What stories will unfold? What chapters will unfold that help define your legacy? When the artistically stout pivot front door glides open and you enter for the first time, the book is underway. The elegant floating staircase before you leads to a living expanse of tremendous views. Beneath towering ceilings and hefty beams is the kitchen, great room and dining room, all encircled by windows framing views of the Martis Valley and beyond. The great room features a stunning fireplace, a wine cellar within its walls, and accordion doors that open to a private back yard with a water feature, firepit, hot tub, covered/heated barbecue bay, grass, and stonework walls with forests beyond that fall from the ski slopes. In the kitchen that commands this space is a large work counter, pantry, and a pass-through window to the barbecue bay. The dining room centers around an impressive custom chandelier and holds compelling views. The downstairs media room features its own patio while nearby is a bunk room. Beyond the great room is a bedroom while further on is the primary suite with fireplace and direct access to the backyard patio with the hot tub and the intimate bridge spanning the water feature, all of which add to the possible directions this story could go.
This new home is on a ski-in lot from Lookout Mountain and features four bedrooms and one bedroom/office selection. There are five full baths and two half baths. Appliances include Miele and Sub-Zero. Cabinets are walnut and countertops are granite, marble and quartzite. In addition to the floating staircase is a second stairway as well as an elevator. Most rooms include motorized shades and the big screen tv in the great room is hidden, appearing from the custom steel paneling with the press of a button.
With all that surrounds this home – the ability to drop into the back door on skis or to escape to the Tom Fazio golf course or Tahoe or to simply admire the views beyond and the craftsmanship within – make this a wonderful place to bring stories to life.
