In the loft upstairs, the deck of a pirate’s sloop may take shape in the course of one night. The next night it might be transformed into a make-believe castle. Down the hall, giggles are heard up high in the loft that towers above the bedroom. For all this 4-bed, 4.5-bath home’s amazing features, it’s those small lofts above the kids rooms where imaginations are most often on display and where technology takes a back seat. Not to be outdone by these balconies of wonder is every other square inch of creativity that appeals to all ages, including the billiards/media room upstairs and the great room with its impressive granite fireplace and hefty wooden mantle. Additionally, another large media or potential 5th bed/bunk room over garage gives room for imagination and play. The kitchen, dining room and great room that first greet you here are all tied together by a liberal use of windows and light, natural woods, collectively making for a warm and brilliant setting. The primary suite has a windowed seating area, stone fireplace, and a patio that provide access to the hot tub, both covered to ensure year-round pleasure.
This 4,041-square-foot mountain home is just a short walk from Camp Lahontan. At its entrance is an intimate patio, ideal for a morning cup of coffee. Appliances include KitchenAid and Thermador while countertops are granite in the kitchen and travertine in the bathrooms. Cabinetry is crafted from pine while flooring ranges from hardwood to carpet to tiles. Tucked into a forest with native landscaping and with an accented entry of flamed granite stone, this home exudes quality. The quietude of the location is pleasing as well, an ideal element for those who exercise their wide-eyed wonder in those lofts where imaginations come alive.
