Property description

This unique private retreat is nestled in the woods next to a stream.

The views from the 25' floor-to-ceiling glass walls look over the extensive natural gardens and patios.
The 900 square foot master suite has a king bed, interior balcony, exterior balcony, fireplace, jetted soaking tub, and steam shower.
The remaining four bedrooms have queen beds.
The house is fully equipped including a grand piano, new luxurious linens and beautifully appointed leather furniture. A dramatic floor-ceiling cut rock fireplace in the living room is available for cozy evenings. The dining area has a long table that can seat 12.

The house is very comfortable with lots of space and privacy. It is great for families or friends that want to enjoy a wonderful holiday together.

The great room and patios are easily converted for large functions and gatherings, easily seating 40 to 70 (depending on the season contact the owner for info) for your event. There are additional charges for events depending on the event and the number of people.
Sometimes we offer weather guarantees. For winter, usually it involves a combination of the weather and lift operations. Ask the owner for details.

About the owner: Ed has over 20 years of experience creating, financing, advising and managing start-ups in a diverse set of industries including land use planning, commercial real estate investment, the music industry and hi-tech. Truly a jack of all trades, his accomplishments range from pioneering GIS applications in ecology to innovations in contemporary architecture. Ed brings a particular knack and fondness for early adoption of emerging technology to every project he starts, and his innovations have received international recognition including an award from Netexplo in 2012 for his work at H2020. He is simultaneously well versed in resolving field trial glitches and smoothing adverse policy conditions. Ed has a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology and Environmental Studies from St. Lawrence University and achieved NCAA All-American status in skiing in addition to his studies. Ed is an avid sailor and lives with his wife, and two children in the Berkeley Marina. Erika is an entrepreneur, attorney and consultant originally from Tahoe City, California. She provides strategic counsel to clients across a range of industries, including climate change, California cap-and-trade, sustainable fisheries, micro-finance and micro-agriculture. Erika is serving as the CEO for Renewable Exploration/H2020, which was an early-mover in crowdsourcing information about water resources, including watershed management and water poverty. She has been internationally recognized, including receiving the 2012 Netexplo Award, for this work in tapping the “intelligence of crowds” to improve public understanding of water resources. She speaks frequently on the subject at national and international forums such as UNESCO. Erika has worked extensively in the areas of climate change, land use and water management. She graduated with honors from Cornell Law School and has dual degrees in Earth, Atmospheric and Planetary Science and Music from MIT.
