An hour ago, there was laughter, games, and discussions of a day on the slopes. It was a great room at its greatest. Now, there’s a peaceful silence and the satisfaction of watching the flames flicker in the majestic rock fireplace, knowing that guests and family have settled into their own spaces on what is the finest family compound at Lahontan. The majority of this five-building, 7,488-square-foot estate rests with the main home where a great room, dining room, two master suites, and an office/bedroom are ringed by a patio overlooking the 13th fairway of the Lahontan golf course. Beyond this double-lot, 1.5-acre setting are trails that reach out from the Boathouse pond to the Martis Valley. The great room’s massive stone hearth is the centerpiece of what simultaneously feels like a home at a Tahoe resort. The patio just beyond its doors features a firepit, jacuzzi, barbeque bay, heated dining cover, and covered walkways that wander off to other portions of the property. A separate guesthouse has its own kitchenette, a living room centered around an impressive fireplace of stone and metal, corner dining nook, guest master, and upstairs bedroom. Further down its own covered path is a game house with shuffleboard, table tennis, a media area, small kitchen, bunk room with bath, and a swing that gazes off to the 13th fairway. Above one of the two garages is a studio/yoga/fitness room connected to the main house – like all other building here – by an artistic network of covered passages.
Those touches that complete the stateliness of this home include hand-chiseled interior doors, custom light fixtures, a slate roof, and a palette of reclaimed siding that is distinct to each building. Appliances include Viking, GE Monogram, Sub-Zero, LG, and Bosch. Most visible, however, is this home’s ability to draw friends and family together – to a kitchen, great room and dining area that radiate love – and to provide retreats where all can settle into their own individual comforts and rhythms.
