Privacy and Serenity Awaits! This remarkable home combines rustic charm with modern comfort, offering a serene retreat in Tahoe Donner. As you approach you will be captivated by the ambience of the surrounding forest. From the second floor deck entrance you will be greeted by a birds eye view of the forest canopy from the outdoor living area. This upper deck is perfect for entertaining, and barbeques on the large pellet grill. Enter through French doors that bring you in to an open beam vaulted ceiling, as you walk on a floor of random quartzite stone. A wood stove is the focal point of the living room and dining area that warms-up the two upper floors. Views of the forest are offered through large windows in the main living area. The kitchen is a chef’s dream, with granite counters, top-of-the-line stainless steel appliances, and a food-prep peninsula. Two second-floor bedrooms with scraped engineered wood floors, one with a splendid bunk bed and a trundle, the other with and a queen bed, accommodate family or guests. The bathroom is a work of art, with a petrified wood vessel sink, and hand-made ceramic trout swimming upstream through a river-rock pebble creek that flows to the ceiling in the tub/shower. The primary suite is reached via a floating staircase of custom-milled, live-edge Hormigo (Honduras) wood, leading to a roomy loft. Moose and deer antler sconce lighting in the bathroom, and a walk-in closet, with a hidden storage room, compliment the primary suit. On the ground floor sits a spacious bonus room with a wall-mounted 75” LED television you’ll watch from a leather sofa, with two reclining positions. Readers can isolate on two more reclining chairs or play chess on the custom-made chessboard table, just one of five custom made wooden pieces in the home. Marilyn Dryer Mason limited-edition giclee artwork throughout the house, in stunning wood and bark frames stay with the home. A charming antique hand-carved bear bench, and antique winter sports pieces decorate the knotty pine walls of the bonus room and the living room. In the back yard, a gas fire pit and a circle of chairs wait for your ‘smores and ghost stories after the sun dips down. A horseshoe pit and two redwood picnic tables make for plenty of outdoor fun. Beyond the property lies open space with a wonderful hiking trail. A vintage mahogany outboard runabout, a Honda 928 snowblower, and a dual-fuel generator are negotiable pieces with this property.
