Nestled in the forest northwest of Lake Tahoe, this character home features sleek rooflines and amazing views of the Northstar Ski Slopes. The mountain scenery was the dominant feature around which the home was designed. Great care was taken by the architect to not only site the building but also each room, so that the homeowner’s initial request—to capture and celebrate that view—could be granted. The integration of elegant window walls made this vision a reality.
The exquisitely landscaped property includes a stream that travels under the bridged walkway. Indoor and outdoor living is perfectly balanced with a lift-and-slide door system that provides easy access from the great room onto a generous private patio. The steel accents throughout the house are balanced by beautiful woodwork.
This 4000-square-foot home utilizes a palette of stone, metal, and clear cedar throughout. However, these traditional materials are joined together in ways that are decidedly contemporary, with unique features such as horizontally cut sandstone, copper shingles, and an artful mix of primary pitched roofs and curved accent roofs.
