Zephyr Cove house description

This home was once owned by the Sahara Tahoe Hotel and Casino (now the Horizon Casino) and was used to provide private accommodations for it's star performers. The eccentric decor of the bathrooms was retained for nostalgia and includes hand painted imported sinks, elaborate fixtures, mirrored walls, extensive tile and hand painted murals. The home is located on a cul-de-sac in a quiet and secure area of the exclusive Skyland community.

Enjoy breath-taking views of Lake Tahoe and Emerald Bay in the distance from our deep water pier, or the expansive outdoor deck. The pier is a rare amenity that is 220 feet long and 15 feet wide at the pier head and includes a catwalk and swim ladder - your private island in the sun. The deck is over 1600 SF and includes a hot tub, firepit, dining table and B-B-Q.

The home is over 5000 SF. The entry, bedrooms and dry sauna are on the upper level where it is quiet and relaxing. The kitchen & great room, family room, and billiard room are on the mid level. The oversized kitchen is fully equipped with stand alone refrigerator, separate freezer with ice-maker and Wolfe gourmet stove for those that like to cook. The kitchenette, card room and lounge are on the lower level with an expansive outdoor deck and living area. Extensive use of tile floors over radiant heat. Radiant heat driveway accommodates 4 vehicles. Garage reserved for owner.

This is a family home where you will find a foosball table, billiards, board games, cards, dice, checkers and chess. There is a bookshelf full of books and a DVD/VCR library for you to enjoy. Because of limited parking and respect for our neighbors, this home is not suitable for group functions, including parties or weddings, and is expressly prohibited in the rental agreement.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2007

              About the owner: My husband, Mark, spent many treasured childhood summers at Lake Tahoe. His grandparents, Ernest and Nellie, purchased lakefront property in Lake Tahoe in 1922 which was a legacy that lasted three generations. The Lake is a sanctuary for Mark - a place to re-charge from his hurried life and reacquaint himself with nature. When the family property was sold in 2007, Mark knew he wanted our children to experience Lake Tahoe in the same way so we acquired this one-of-a-kind home in Zephyr Cove.

              Why the Owner Chose Zephyr Cove:
              The east shore provides some of the most scenic views of Lake Tahoe. It has warm afternoons and spectacular sunsets. It is close to South Shore casinos offering world class entertainment and food. The home is situated 50 feet from the trailhead to National forest lands where there is hiking and private beaches to discover. In the summer you can hike (less than 1 mile) through the forest to the Zephyr Cove pier where water sports are available to include boating, catamarans, canoes, windsurfing, water skiing, jet skiing, beach volleyball and the famous Dixie paddle boat cruise. There is also indoor and beach dining at Zephyr Cove. In the winter it is a short drive to Heavenly Valley Ski Resort that hosts snow boarding, snow skiing, zip lining (Heavenly Flyer) and a children's play area (Adventure Peak). The Kahle Community Center has a gym, indoor courts, indoor track and outdoor sports field.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              This home offers a truly unforgettable Lake Tahoe experience. The home and deck extend out to the edge of the water offering a rare outdoor experience. The gas barbeque, dining table, hot tub and firepit provide everything you need for a relaxing day at the Lake without ever leaving home. The Skyland community beach is a wonderful place for young children to play or for adults to share the company of friends and neighbors.
