Owner info

Year Purchased: 1989

About the owner: Gary & Marti Barmore discovered Tahoe Vista when Marti's brother and his family moved there over 25 years ago. It wasn't long before Gary & Marti fell in love with a Tahoe style home of their own here! Gary liked the large garage and Marti liked the spacious kitchen. They added a second story in 1999 and have added other rooms and many amenities to provide comfort for their family and guests. While they still live in southern California, they visit their beloved second home regularly to enjoy and maintain its pristine condition.
