This 4 bedroom / 2 bathroom home was originally designed and custom-built by a renowned and reputable builder in the Tahoe Basin as his own personal residence. This is truly a distinctive private residence that is spread out among a well thought out tri-level layout.
Each of the 4 sleeping retreats has numerous custom details that make them a special place to spend your time.
The private Master bedroom suite boasts a high-end pillow top queen sleigh bed that sleeps 2. The ensuite Master bathroom is equipped with dual Hansgrohe shower heads, modern above-counter sinks, and ultra-modern décor. Just outside the French doors from the Master, a steaming Caldera hot tub is conveniently located.
The second bedroom with its nautical lakehouse decor has a queen bed to comfortably sleep 2. Twin beds in the third bedroom sleep 2 children. A private fourth sleeping area is located downstairs with a dreamy-soft queen bed and futon to sleep 4 and TV/DVD player.
A substantial rustic cobblestone warm and cozy gas fireplace, tasteful decor, high-end stainless BBQ, skylights, HD Satellite TV, phone, high-speed internet, hot tub, multiple decks, 5 spacious green grass lawns, beautiful annual & perennial gardens, all set upon one of the West Shore's finest fully-manicured (and fully fenced) quarter-acre parcels.
Families with small children and/or pets can relax with an added piece of mind that their loved ones are contained and the wild animals are kept out. Additionally, this home is equipped with a state-of-the-art automatic natural gas generator and transfer switch. If the power should fail during your time in Tahoe, you certainly won’t notice it while staying in this beautiful West Shore Retreat.

About the owner: We purchased this house in 1998 after getting married earlier that year. We lived in this home for 12 years, raised our children and created some of our most special memories. Our family has deep roots in Tahoe. We are 4th and 5th generations that have resided in the Tahoma and Homewood areas of the West Shore. We love the West Shore and could not imagine living anywhere else.
Why the Owner Chose Tahoma: The Timber Wolf House is located on a quiet street in a wonderful neighborhood.
The Unique Benefits at this House: Because this was our personal home for 12 years, we added a lot of personal home features which make it more than just a bare vacation rental. We have an automatic generator in the event of a power outage, a beautifully manicured and fenced backyard with a place for children to play safely or for domesticated animals to roam, high-end appliances and fixtures. The home is also located in a quiet neighborhood and street where you do not have to worry about traffic noise. It is a walk to Chamber's Landing Beach & Bar and 2 miles from Homewood Ski Resort.
