This 1919 stone house named 'SEEK NO FURTHER' (one of the last original Tahoe stone homes) was purchased in 2004 because of its incredible lake frontage and beautiful true south facing views... being transformed through a two year remodeling process into a gorgeous Lake Tahoe treasure. The large deck right on the water is a wonderful place for families to enjoy the beauty of Lake Tahoe. It is large with several chaise lounges, umbrella, a seating area with rocker lounge chairs and coffee table and is beautifully accented with many flowering potted plantings. The views from this deck have captured the beauty and essence of Lake Tahoe. The entire property has been beautifully landscaped including a gorgeous middle courtyard water feature and flower beds throughout the property producing blooms spring, summer and fall... resulting in this property being invited to the 2008 'Lake of the Sky' Garden Tour.
The Main house has three bedrooms, two baths, gorgeous full kitchen, great room with very large original fireplace, dining room with separate wood burning stove, stone patio which opens off the dining room, great room and master with double wide patio doors. The furnishings are comfy and elegant.. and there are also a number of family antiques that add to the elegance of this property. The apartment over the garage (25 steps from the main house) has an additional two bedrooms, one bath and another kitchen with very cozy living room and another wood burning stove. The apartment also has a lovely deck off the living room which does have a lake view and in the spring, summer and fall, deck furniture is there to enjoy. The lake can be viewed from the kitchen, dining room, living room, the master bedroom and most of the apartment as well.
Having two separate residences has proved to be an asset since many guests usually include multi-generational families or several friends and families getting together for the holidays or vacations. Having some of the property separated in different homes has allowed families to 'have discretionary time away for privacy... or allow down-time'. A number of prior guests have commented that this really enchanted the opportunity to truly enjoy a vacation.. without being on top of one-another.
The main house has a gorgeous gourmet kitchen with the highest of quality appliances (Subzero refrigerator, Viking gas stove, Wolf double ovens, Miele espresso coffee maker, microwave, Miele dishwasher, 30 bottle wine cooler and beautiful knotty maple cabinetry). Every appliance a gourmet cook would need is provided and the kitchen is stocked with spices and condiments, several services of glassware and ... heated floors to boot!! The dining room table (with a lake view) will seat eight but there is another drop leaf table close by and the patio table (seating eight) available spring, summer and fall. The built in stainless barbeque just below the stone patio provides additional convenience for food prep separate from the gourmet kitchen. The bathrooms have beautiful granite and tile, frameless glass enclosures, excellent quality bath appliances, heated floors and heated toilet seats (trust me this is a plus in winter!!). There are 21 skylights providing additional ambient light. Very high quality light fixtures are provided throughout. There are flat screen TV's and DVD's in the living rooms, dining room, and all bedrooms of both houses (with extended cable). A Bose Music system is also provided with large additional stock of PG movies for family viewing.
The master bedroom has a queen captain's bed (with baskets below for storage) and a gorgeous lake frontage view. It is an en suite... with its own bathroom. The second bedroom has a trundle bed with two twins... and shares the second bathroom. The third bedroom has a king captain's bed also with under bed basket stowage but also has a view of the gorgeous courtyard garden. The two bedrooms in the apartment have two king beds and share a tub/shower bath. All bedrooms have beautiful very high quality bedding from Hemmings and Jarret and also have closet organizers to maximize storage. Both houses are beautifully furnished with very nice quality furnishings also from Hemmings and Jarret (a high end furnishing supplier in Tahoe City dealing primarily with decorators). The apartment has an additional kitchen which does allow family autonomy...or can augment family celebrations with additional kitchen space for food prep. There is professional landscape lighting that is installed throughout the property.. and there is lighting down the driveway, under the garage bay overhang, by the front door(s) and up the stairs to the upper apartment. The deck on the water also has downcast lighting... which is maintained in the spring, summer and fall. The 7 person hot tub is a wonderful place to enjoy gorgeous sunsets year round... or relax after a long day on the close by hiking, biking trails or skiing like an Olympic champ!
There are two buoys close to the shoreline for boats... the further of the buoys suitable for very large boats... up to 13,000 lbs... the closer buoy can handle smaller boats or water trampolines, skidoos or whatever floatable device you choose to bring. The homeowner can not provide any kind of floatable device due to insurance limitations but remember Sierra Boat Marina is just 1/8 of a mile away. This property also has garage access for one medium sized car and parking for up to four vehicles is available in front of the three car garage and down the driveway. This is a gated property which adds to guest privacy and pet and child security.

About the owner: We decided to purchase this lovely home on the lake for our personal enjoyment as well as a vacation rental. We thoroughly enjoy Lake Tahoe all year round. From skiing in the winter, to hiking, biking and boating in the summer. It's a perfect get-away for our active family. We hope you will treasure your time here, as much as we do. Enjoy...
Why the Owner Chose Carnelian Bay:
Lake Tahoe has been one of our favorite places to 'get away' to... and since it was so close to the bay area... (where we live and work)...it was a perfect destination getaway. Lake Tahoe is such a wonderful, year round vacation location since it has wonderful skiing, summer boating, great golf courses, wonderful restaurants, river rafting, horse back riding... and terrific hiking... there is no end to the wonderful activities one can enjoy in Tahoe...
