It should be noted that dinners here may have a tendency to go cold. It’s not a statement about the chef, the preparation, or the choice of meal. Instead, it’s far more attributable to the ambience and the orientation of the dining room. You see, it’s hard to eat when your jaw is dropped and your eyes are fixed on the sunset over Tinker’s Knob and the Pacific Crest. With its elevated perch, this 3,990-square-foot Martis Camp home claims stunning views not only from the nearest placemat, but also from the kitchen and the great room with soaring fireplace and accordion glass doors that fold up and expose the grandiosity beyond. Not to be outdone is a deck that wraps around the airborne side of this home. There’s a hot tub, a firepit, barbecue, and a Big Green Egg smoker/oven. All hold tickets to the western stage while the other side of the deck with its own fireplace, covered and heated sitting area, and railing-side counter and seating enjoy views of the Martis Valley and Carson Range. It’s an entertainer’s dream. First steps into this elegant home reveal tall, pitched ceilings that complement the distant mountains. There’s a media room to your right and an alluring call to the dining room, great room, and kitchen further along. The kitchen has a wood-fired pizza oven and the pantry is cleverly secreted away while a handsome wine fridge is on full display. The primary suite with stone fireplace faces the western scene and has immediate access to the hot tub and deck. There’s an office at the first landing and, up the next set of stairs, two bedrooms, including one with a deck, fridge, coffee maker and sink. Also up here is a bunkroom with windows framing the forest above.
A close walk from the Tennis Pavilion, this 4-bed, 4.5-bath home is situated on a large lot and is elevated to provide tree top views. The range and refrigerator are both Thermador and the kitchen floor is a rustic European oak. The attention to detail is evident throughout. At the same time, attentions may well wander elsewhere, such as toward the amazing vistas that seem to stretch out from every point of this home – especially at the dining room.
