Truckee house description

Minutes away from historic Truckee with its exceptional restaurants and boutique stores; the great skiing at Northstar, Squaw Valley and Sugar Bowl; the entertainment and excitement of Reno (30 minutes close); and beautiful Lake Tahoe. Carve a run on the gently sloping hill for the kids out the back door and use our sleds. The home is on almost 2 acres of wooded land on a plowed, private dead-end road. You'll rarely will see a car and have to look hard to see a neighbor.
There is a heated 3-car garage. The home accommodates one or two families or a small ski group. It is a solidly built custom home. You will be warm and comfortable.
Keywords: Charming custom-built mountain home with two bedrooms each with whirlpool tub & shower. Office/bunk room has 1/2 bath. You'll find wi-fi and satellite TV in every room. Curl up in the cozy sunken living room by the wood burning stove and enjoy a book or DVD from our extensive library. Or, treat yourself to a gourmet dinner in the high-end kitchen with granite counter and upscale appliances.

              Car: Necessary

              Wide variety of ski resorts: beginner, intermediate, expert mountains all within an 8 mile range. Take a day off to rest and enjoy a shopping spree in Downtown Truckee's Historic area, a drive over to

              Lake Tahoe to walk the beach and/or having lunch or dinner. Or, take the day off for a drive around the lake. Check out Donner Lake as well and the Donner Party Museum there. Our children and grandchildren enjoy just staying home for a day and sled on the property or on our gradual downslope of the private road out front! In summer, the area is rich with beautiful hiking trails, camping and our home has it's own firepit at the end of the meadow for bonfire seating for stories, marshmallow toasting and warm conversation.


              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2003

              About the owner: We are a semi-retired couple who love to travel. Here we are (Ron & Jan) at Hanalai Bay, Hawaii

              Why the Owner Chose Truckee:
              Guests tell us that the home has a very warm feel to it (which we have always felt)!

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              The 3 car garage can be entered after driving up the snowplowed drive. Nice not to have to remove snow from your car in the morning. Lots of privacy; yet still close to downtown Truckee and ski resorts.
