  • The unique beauty of this home lies in its commanding yet serene presence achieved by a seamless expression of contemporary architectural concepts at a mountainous scale. The exterior glass wall framed by a mosaic of hot rolled steel reveals the stunning “waterfall” cabled staircase within.

    The home features over 180 degrees of unobstructed Martis Camp Golf Course views, along with corridor views of the surrounding Sierra Nevada. The terraced backyard features four covered patios, multiple decks, two large uncovered patios, a firepit and a spa capturing the essence of the Tahoe/Truckee outdoor lifestyle.

    The Great Room experience is truly indoor/outdoor living as it opens to the outdoor terrace with towering glass Weiland doors and windows. Ceilings are aglow in western red cedar while the floors are accented by a distinctive combination of wide French white oak planks and etched basalt tile. Walls, doors and cabinetry are clad in a beautiful rift white oak. Occasionally, exterior stacked stone walls continue inside the home enhancing the indoor/outdoor connection. Sculptural light fixtures from designers such as Moooi, Secto Design and Foscarini illuminate the spaces throughout. The artwork is by local renowned artist Andrew Bolam.
