To design and build a home that showcases the surrounding sweeping mountain views, incorporates walls of glass with light and open interior spaces required the collaboration of a team of extraordinary craftsmen. The result is a stunning masterpiece. Designed and built for the owner as the ultimate mountain home, it received Tahoe Quarterly's Outstanding Craftsmanship Award. Located within 300 feet from the Home Run ski run and optimally sited on a double lot, this home is one of the finest in Northstar.
Vaulted ceilings, open beam construction and an abundance of natural light draw you into the home. A massive two-sided fireplace is the heart and focal point of the great room, and also serves as the main divider between the combined kitchen, dining, and living areas, giving each an open but intimate feel. The well-appointed kitchen has a large island with guest seating, Taj Mahal quartzite countertops, professional appliances and three dishwashers. The main-level primary suite is its own splendid retreat with a granite stone fireplace, spa-like bathroom with steam shower and jetted tub, a large walk-in closet, laundry and expansive mountain views.
The 6,295 square-foot tri-level home was designed to comfortably accommodate a large party, or a party of two. The home intentionally feels warm and intimate, even when only the primary bedroom suite is in use. The additional guest suites are located on separate levels, giving flexibility to the floor plan.
The lower-level accommodations include two guest suites with views, and two train-style Pullman bunk sleeping alcoves. Friends and family will enjoy a large media and game room, pool table, wine cellar, wet bar, and a business workstation, this flexible gathering space has a Portuguese cork floor which is both sound absorbing and warm. After adventures on the mountain take advantage of the Finnish sauna, steam shower, additional laundry facility, and access to a large deck with a hot tub.
A luxurious private guest or caretaker’s wing is located above the garage with a tree-top sleeping area, a kitchenette with copper countertop, private bath with Brazilian black granite, a third laundry room, and a private deck with more stunning views.
Outdoor amenities include five Brazilian ironwood decks, a spacious outdoor dining and lounge area, a firepit, a bocce ball court, and beautifully landscaped grounds.
The sign of a truly exceptional mountain house is a designated recreation entrance which includes boot storage with a built-in drying system, a workroom for tuning bikes and skis and additional cubby storage.
