This property holds a special place in my heart. My husband and I owned the land, and after our divorce we sold it. I loved the land because it was the only parcel for a larger home in Tahoe Donner that had the amenities and benefits of being part of the homeowner’s association. The views are stunning in all directions. I saw the finished home on a realtor’s tour and loved it. You have complete seclusion yet are minutes away from getting your groceries and going into town. It’s the perfect home for someone who wants to have privacy and still enjoy the area’s benefits. — Dinny
A unique Tahoe Donner Real Estate opportunity with this rare home that is part of the Tahoe Donner Association, sitting on nearly eight and a half acres with 360 degrees views, is waiting its new discriminating owner. Built in 2010, this exquisite custom home is offered for $6,750,000. WA Design of Berkeley, CA was the architect who designed the house in line with the land, and it was a featured home on Houzz.com as well as an award winning design that was featured in TahoeQuarterly.com.
Two Tahoe Ridge House has 4960 square feet, with an extended design that takes advantage of the hillside. The parcel of land was one of the last large parcels in the Tahoe area and is covered with white pine and red fir trees. The property slopes upward to a rocky ridge of granite. Fine contemporary home design blends seamlessly into the land and reflects the Tahoe area. A metal-sided exterior is reflective of the mining and stamp mill buildings seen during the original gold rush. The building structure is supported by 10×10 inch recycled Douglas fir posts.
Large Sierra White granite blocks are carved and hewn to form the fireplace hearths in the home. Window views are plentiful throughout the house. A huge vaulted ceiling with sturdy metal bracketing is impressive in the great room and is designed to withstand winter’s heavy snows.
The L-shaped kitchen has an industrial-style aesthetic with modern touches. Granite countertops sit atop bamboo casework counters; while a wall of gray slate tiles compliment the stove. The open floor plan offers space throughout the home; tall ceilings and neutral colors give a bright, airy feel.
It is extraordinary to have such an original property enter the Tahoe/Donner/Truckee marketplace. The opportunity to own this home is limited; schedule your private showing quickly for this once-in-a-lifetime refuge.
