Tahoe Donner house description

Our vacation home is a unique mountain home design that is conveniently located to all Tahoe Donner amenities. Built by an architect to be his own home, the house is ideally situated on a landscaped lot to take advantage of the natural light, views, and outdoor living in the mountains. The floor plan accommodates large parties featuring a common great room, dining and kitchen area that flows for easy entertaining. The house is light-filled with lots of windows, soaring ceilings, beautiful woodwork, slate, and travertine tile throughout.

Ideally suited for 3 families with kids or a large group, the house features a master suite with a cal king bed, 2 queen bedrooms with a common bathroom and loft area on the second floor. There is also a first floor 'bunk' room featuring a twin over full and twin over twin bunk bed with a seating area and mini-refrigerator. A great place for the kids or teenagers to hang out.

The gourmet kitchen features granite countertops and stainless steel appliances. It is a cook's kitchen fully outfitted with everything needed to prepare and present fare for a large group. 2 sinks, 1 on the island for food prep, large pantry for food storage and a mini-bar with refrigerator for beer, wine and libations.

The backyard is beautifully landscaped with natural rocks, lawn and courtyard area. The outdoor layout allows you to take advantage of Tahoe's warm summer days and evenings for outdoor entertaining and recreating.
