There are morning people. And there are evening people. And then, there are those who make the best of both. Those are the people who live here, who step beyond the great room and kitchen to their three-tiered veranda with a cup of coffee and the view of ski lifts waking up on the mountain to the south. Twelve hours later, the fire pit’s blazing, wine has supplanted coffee, and the chairs have done an about-face to catch the sun setting over the Pacific Crest.
Located at the end of a cul-de-sac with a greenbelt and forest beyond the patio, this 5-bed, 5.5-bath Lahontan Golf Club home is well placed in its own pocket of privacy. The great room features a fireplace, wide windows and large beams while the nearby dining room is adjacent to the kitchen and the double doors that slide open to the patio. The counter that comes between the kitchen and dining room is a natural gathering place for breakfasts, board games and conversations. Within the kitchen is a vast quartzite workspace. Down the hall from the great room is a bedroom and, further along, a primary bedroom with fireplace and doors that open to the veranda facing the day’s first light. At the top of the stairs, the pace picks up in a large and lively game room where shuffleboard and ping pong reign. Those mountain views arise up here as well.
The appliances within this 4,350-square-foot home bear the names of the finest in the industry. The range and oven are Wolf, refrigerator is Sub-Zero, and the wine cooler is GE Monogram. The downstairs floors are a stunning run of wood while, other than the tiled bathrooms, carpet is king upstairs. There are three air conditioning units as well, although those who rise early know that there’s no substitute for that delicate breeze that seems to arrive with every sunup.
