Heavenly Valley chalet description

-- AS FEATURED IN CA HOME+DESIGN MAGAZINE'S AND 7X7'S TOP 5 GETAWAY ESCAPES --

Discover an architectural gem just a short walk from the beach, Heavenly Ski Gondola (just voted #1 Ski Destination by USA Today) and Heavenly Village. Nestled behind a private meadow and a pair of twin pine trees is our 'Chalet de Celeste'. Our contemporary mountain home was just completed in 2012 emphasizing natural materials with an artful combination of Italian marble and travertine, tumbled river rocks, Brazilian mahogany, glass railings, floating staircases, hand scraped hickory floors, Miele appliances and Grohe finishes throughout.

Surrounded by protected pine forest, the Chalet contrasts rustic elements with a distinctive contemporary design. Although inspired by the Swiss mountains and traditional elements, no modern luxury has been spared. Traditional and vernacular materials, such as wood, stone and glass, create the modern accents of 'Alpine chic'. The exterior is reminiscent of traditional Wood-Strickbau Chalet styles of the Gomsertal Valley in Switzerland.

The entry terrace to the Chalet has a stone barbecue grill to prepare light meals outdoors while enjoying refreshments. Surrounded by pine trees, it is also a good spot for bird watching. During summer, the outdoors are a serene setting for guests to relax in the hammock. Summertime sunsets are particularly beautiful, at this time of day the treetops are bathed in hues of gold and rose. In wintertime, the idyllic meadow directly across the Chalet transforms into a snow covered area for fun sledding with children.

Entering the Chalet through a slate warming room, the heart of the custom home is the great room. This encompasses the open kitchen, the dining area and the living room. The gourmet kitchen has walnut Studio Becker cabinets, Miele stainless steel appliances, a built-in wine fridge, under and above cabinet lighting, and ample cookware. The white Calacatta marble island seats three. The open-plan kitchen combines a contemporary style of living with authentic mountain atmosphere. The combination of wood, stone and glass reinforce the traditional Chalet feel.

The dining table and benches are made from reclaimed Indonesian teak wood with seating for 10. The living area has ample seating on the brompton cocoa leather sofa and club chair. The 60' flat screen can be seen from all areas of the great room. There is also an iPod integrated in-wall home theater system. The vaulted floor-to-ceiling windows soar to 30 feet high and automatically lead the eyes out to the picturesque pine tree valley and mountain views. This is the perfect place for entertaining, shooting a game of pool, and relaxing after a long day of skiing next to the glass enclosed gas fireplace.

An elegant custom floating wood and glass staircase beneath angled skylights leads from the living area to the master suite. This is truly a retreat with a spa-like master bath with his and her vanities, Italian travertine walls and floors, a walk in multi-head steam shower and granite bench, heated floors and towel racks, and Toto washlet. The steam shower offers a relaxing and rejuvenating therapy for weary muscles from skiing or outdoor activities. The master bedroom has 20 foot high vaulted ceilings and windows, queen sleigh bed, and full pine tree views.

The other two bedrooms are on the first floor. The first has a queen sleigh bed. The second bedroom has two twin sleigh beds. There is a bathroom next to the lower bedrooms with a dual head shower and soaking tub, glass blocks, linen closet, dual vanities, heated floors and towel racks, and Italian ceramic walls and floors. The washer and dryer are on this level as well.

There is a spacious light filled Library loft above the living room, offering a wide selection of coffee table books along with travel guides, novels, board games and reference materials. The open Library loft has floor to ceiling windows that overlook the pine forest meadow in front of the Chalet. This part of the home is perfect as a second living area for the kids or as a private sleeping retreat for the in-laws. The leather sofa in the living room can also be converted into a queen sized bed.

The home is adorned through out with custom artwork and furniture of which many pieces are designed by members of our family.

On the back side of the property awaits a jetted wooden clad hot tub awaits sunken into it's own private outdoor terrace, featuring a dressing area surrounded by the Sierra Nevada pines. This is a great place to lounge around, soak, and enjoy time with friends and family. Here one also finds a sun umbrella set between two teak loungers.

There is private parking for up to 2 vehicles on the property.

We designed this Chalet to take full advantage of the natural light and Heavenly Valley mountain views, and hope you enjoy the stunning combination of natural materials and exquisite product selections that truly set our dream home apart.

The Neighborhood
Modern Lake Tahoe was shaped and landscaped by scouring glaciers during the Ice Ages, which began over a million years ago. To this day, it remains an exclusive destination for year round fun and relaxation.

The Sierra Nevada mountains are a spectacular backdrop in summer as well as winter when snowfall attracts skiers. In summer, guests can enjoy beach picnics along the 71 miles of shoreline along the lake with breathtaking views and clarity or explore the myriad of hiking trails tucked into the foothills. Year round activities include skiing, horseback riding, hiking, climbing, mountain biking, water sports, and golf and tennis.

Getting around
A short walk to the village center itself offers a plethora of attractions off the largest alpine Lake in North America. Stroll the village for a spot of shopping and enjoy it's convivial après-ski atmosphere by day or night.

The sunny slopes of Heavenly Mountain Resort, the largest ski area in California and Nevada, conveniently located 5 minutes drive from the Chalet with 4,800 skiable acres, are attractive for families, pleasure and ambitious skiers alike.

The Edgewood golf course, home to the American Century Celebrity Golf Tournament held each July, is located one and half miles away and also offers scenic views of the surrounding region.
