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.

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!
