Property description

Sugar Pine Chalet is a charming and functional Tahoe home nestled beneath towering Pine and Aspen trees on the West Shore of Lake Tahoe. This home underwent a major remodel that includes new floors and wall coverings, new bathrooms, a new kitchen, and new decks. The home was designed to retain the charm of a Tahoe home while providing the comfort of luxury features such as granite slab counter tops and stainless steel appliances in the kitchen, tile in the bathrooms, and hardwood floors. The home has two heat sources including a central heat system and a gas stove heater in the living area to keep you warm on those crisp Tahoe evenings.

Enter the main floor of the house from the front deck and be welcomed into the combo kitchen/living area. Head down the hallway to enter the first bathroom, the rec room, and back bedroom with 2 full sized beds. The upstairs level includes the a bedroom with a queen bed and private access to a second level deck. Also upstairs is another bedroom with a queen sized bed and full bathroom, with travertine tile and a shower/tub combo.

Outside the home, you'll find a flat lot that adjoins to a conservancy lot, proving plenty of space to enjoy the outdoors. There is plenty of parking for your cars, boats, or RVs. The front decks, from the upstairs bedroom, and below on the main level provide a comforting atmosphere to relax day or night. There is a BBQ for your grilling pleasure, and a fire pit in the back to relax and be cozy outdoors at night

The location of this home is exceptional from an activities and amenities perspective. Sugar Pine State Park, with hiking, biking, and cross country ski trails, is a 2 block walk from the house. Lake Tahoe is a 10 minute walk and our home has a private HOA beach, pier, and buoys (must be reserved in advance), for your close enjoyment. Homewood Mountain Ski Resort is a 7 minute drive, door to door, from the house, or call the Homewood Shuttle and they will come pick you up.

There are a handful of good restaurants and bars to walk to, including Where We Met (espresso & gelato) & West Side Pizza in downtown Tahoma (7 minute walk) and the PDQ market for food, groceries, and deli (10 minute walk). A short drive or short bike ride will take you to Obexer's General Store, The West Shore Cafe, and Chamber's Landing bar/beach for dining/drinks on the Lake during the summer, and a host of other charming options to keep you occupied and well fed during your stay. The house is a 10 minute drive from Sunnyside restaurant/resort, Firesign Cafe, The Tahoe House Cafe, and all of the restaurants and amenities that Tahoe City has to offer. You can also drive South on Highway 89 to Meeks Bay Resort (3 miles away) and Camp Richardson (be sure to stop at the ice cream shop) and South Lake Tahoe which is about a 25 minute drive. Or you can hop on the trolley that takes you down to South Lake.

Additionally, Squaw Valley USA and Alpine Meadows are a 25 minute drive, and NorthStar Ski Resort is about a 35 minute drive.

Sugar Pine Chalet is the perfect balance of a place to 'get away', while still having amenities to which you can walk, bike, or drive, to satisfy all of your vacation desires.
Come and enjoy your stay at Sugar Pine Chalet!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: We are a family of four, Mom & Dad, and two wonderful boys. We love Tahoe and purchased this house to live in. We lived here for 5+ years and recently relocated to the San Francisco Bay Area. We still use this house frequently as we LOVE Lake Tahoe, Tahoma, and all that the area has to offer. We hope that people will come experience the natural beauty and wonder of this home and this area, that we have grown to love so much ourselves.

Why the Owner Chose Tahoma:
I was a weekend warrior coming up to ski, and decided to make Tahoe my home. I've always loved the West Shore, the bike path all the way down to Sugar Pine Park, the level access to the neighborhood, and proximity to the lake and sandy beaches. My husband and I got married here, now have 2 children and plan to continue enjoying our Tahoma home and LakeTahoe with our family.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Tahoma is a diverse neighborhood of new, custom homes, and vintage Tahoe family cabins. One of our favorite family activities is taking walks around the neighborhood, to the Lake and beach, or for a stroll through Sugar Pine State Park. This entire area is filled with huge trees and amazing vistas of the Lake and mountain tops. You can come to Tahoma and really feel like you have 'gotten away'. At the same time, all the amenities one could want, whether it be a drink by the lake, a nice dinner, or shopping are all in very close proximity. Here, you have the best of all worlds!
