Owner info

Year Purchased: 2002

About the owner: Hello, my name is John. I have spent a great deal of my time in Lake Tahoe since I was very young and love everything the mountains and lakes have to offer. It is a blessing for my wife and I to own this large home and we enjoy sharing the experience with our family and friends.

Why the Owner Chose Pioneer Trail:
I have vacationed in Tahoe since I was a toddler. In my opinion, South Lake Tahoe is the most beautiful place in the world, an ideal vacation spot offering year round activities. It is the only place in the world I know of that you can Snow Ski/Ride and Sunbath at the Beach on the same day. We wanted a home that would accommodate a large family with friends (many bedrooms and bathrooms) and offer easy access to Heavenly Valley Mountains, Beaches, Stateline and more.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Recently remodeled with a new kitchen and lots of pine accents. Six total bedrooms, five on main floor with two master bedrooms, one with an adjacent room. Large multipurpose playroom downstairs with full bath. Hydronic heating system with thermostats in each room for individual comfort. Large storm windows with views of the forest and meadows with horses. A level property with plenty of parking and easy access to the main road.
