June 6, 2011

Property Description:
A novelty in this market, a brand new home is being offered by a long time local contractor that follows the same qualities and Tahoe style finishes as each of his homes have over many years of building in the Basin.  The location of the property presents a tranquil setting with 2 conservancy lots to the rear, an unbuildable lot across the street and a short stroll to acres of US Forest Service land.  Yet even with this somewhat rural local, the home is only a few miles from the city limits where you’ll find Heavenly Ski Resort, restaurants, nightlife and the pristine waters of Lake Tahoe.
Nearing completion this home smells of fresh paint and new carpet with natural stone showers awaiting their first visitor and appliances that have never been touched.  Upstairs offers the typical great room with vaulted ceilings and open floor plan that brings the family or guests together for entertainment and dining pleasures.  A lovely 2nd story composite deck looks down into pine filled empty land, perfect for a glass of wine or a cup of coffee and a relaxing novel.  With 4 bedrooms, there’s plenty of room for the kids or friends, plus this home features a downstairs family room for additional space or gaming.  The kitchen and baths are tastefully finished with custom Hickory cabinetry, slab granite counters and natural stone accents.  The Master Suite is sure to impress with a large jetted tub, stall shower and spacious walk-in closet.  Hurry soon, as this new home can’t last long!
Offered at $525,000

Property Description:

This is an absolutely incredible home that was just built a year ago.  It sits on a flat county parcel in the North Upper Truckee neighborhood with an unbuildable, forestry owned parcel right across the street and great neighbors.  The home is over 3,600 sqft with 6 bedrooms, 3 full baths, a 3 car garage and endless amenities that include custom Alder cabinetry throughout, central vacuum, pre-wired sound system, A/C, steam shower and tons more.  For South Lake Tahoe Real Estate, even in this slumping economy, this is an absolute steal at $200/sf.  The exterior is wrapped entirely with cedar siding and natural granite wainscoting that includes the garage surround.  The home has great curb appeal with a gigantic wide appearance and massive hand peeled log columns that lead you through a giant 8′ entry door.  The exterior of the home is fenced and completely landscaped with automatic sprinklers on everything.  The home was an easy candidate for million dollar plus value a couple of years back and hopefully again in the near future.
Offered at $723,000
