I think I’ve mentioned before that my family used to rent a cabin on the North Shore of Lake Tahoe every Summer while I was growing up. It was the best place to spend a Summer, high in the mountains with hiking and biking and swimming in the frigid lake; and it was a nice cabin, two bedrooms down and a loft upstairs with a large wrap-around deck.
Nowadays, though, my tastes have changed and this cabin, nestled on Crystal Bay, on the North Shore of Lake Tahoe, just west of Incline Village, Nevada, might just fit the bill, even if it is a bit large and ostentatious.
This 7,850 square foot home sits on 1.2 private acres with 110 feet of lake frontage. The Great Room, with attached sunroom and lounge sits high above the water, with a beautiful terrace for those sunsets. The primary suite is set apart from the home, accessed via an enclosed bridge, with views and privacy in mind; outside and down some steps is an in-ground pool with an infinity edge overlooking one of the most beautiful spots on the planet. Downstairs are five more lake view en suite bedroom suites, including a bunk room, office, home gym, and family room and bar with a terrace view. In addition, there is a separate in-law wing over a three-car garage.
I love the windows and the views, and the soaring wooden ceilings; there are open spaces and private spaces so it fits about every family or group. Best of all is that lake frontage. Oh, it’s so far down the hill you say? Who wants to walk all that walk down the hill to the water and then walk back up?
The home comes equipped with a funicular tram brings you down to the crystal cove and deep-water shared pier with a boat lift and a buoy beyond.
They’ve thought of everything …
