                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2010

                  About the owner: Our family lives in San Diego and San Francisco. We've stayed at a hundred rental condos and houses while skiing, boating and travelling. Mostly, we've been disappointed. We've furnished and outfitted this house to meet our own demanding expectations. We spend a lot of time here, so we maintain it to our high standards.

                  Why the Owner Chose Carnelian Bay:
                  Carnelian Bay is among the most convenient places on the lake, whether you fly into Reno (1 hour 15 minutes) or drive up from San Francisco (3 hours 30 minutes). The house is in a quiet location away from the busy, noisy highway around the lake, but when you're ready to go out for dinner or cocktails, there are many fine choices nearby. Grocery stores and other shops are ten minutes away. Before purchasing this home we vacationed at Tahoe for years, staying at the Tahoe Keys in South Lake Tahoe, Incline Village in Nevada, Alpine Valley on the Truckee River, and Homewood on the West Shore. This feels the best to us.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  Completely refurbished in high-end decor. Large corner lot, heavily wooded with a big front yard. Located on a private road in a private community, traffic is very light and children can safely play in the yard while you sit and watch from the deck. In late spring and early summer you'll hear the nearby creek running down to the lake. You can walk the quiet, winding streets or hike in the adjacent National Forest land. There is no retail or commercial activity in this upscale 'Old Tahoe' neighborhood.
