The blueprint for this home is timeless. It’s based on the layout and aesthetics of a 1927 lodge that lined the shores of Lake Tahoe, a home that — while surrounded by remarkable landscaping — reached out and welcomed people to slow down and draw closer. That sense of connection is enhanced at all corners of this 5,507-square-foot home, from the great room with its eclectically stunning rock fireplace and low-slung windows to the decks and patios whose fireplace, hot tub and covered/heated dining area oversee a landscape carefully planned to stir the senses. First steps into this home disclose wide-plank wooden floors, walls of hand-hewn pine and chinking, and stately beams, all of whose light shades lend a glow to the scene. The dining room is straight on from the entry and has access to the large deck and outdoor entertaining space. Stage left is a kitchen with wood counter, wood island, copper sinks, artistic tiling and open the folding doors to an outdoor dining room. Down the hall is a steam room and a master bedroom whose bathroom features a large copper tub and a stonework waterfall. Further on and up a flight of stairs is a guest room with its own kitchen, media space, and a loft with views of the forest and mountains.
This 4-bed, 4-bath (plus two powder rooms) home’s interior features are as impressive as the landscape that embraces it. Counters are made from teak, mahogany, Zebrawood, granite and woods from Africa and Indonesia. Cabinets and doors are knotty alder while floors are reclaimed wide plank white pine from Carlisle, carpet and in the master bath, entryway and powder room — flagstone. Lutron home automation is installed throughout while lighting is Hammerton. Kitchen appliances are all GE Monogram. There’s a hot tub, steam room, and a built-in barbecue made from natural fieldstone.
