                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2012

                  About the owner: We are native Californians with family living in Tahoe Area. Through visiting our family, we have come to appreciate all of the seasons in the Tahoe. We love the lakes and the water sports in the summer, skiing in the winter and spring and hiking in the fall. We live in the Bay Area and it is an easy drive to Tahoe Donner.

                  Why the Owner Chose Tahoe Donner:
                  The house gets tons of natural light and in a beautiful wooded setting. The size of the house allows us to enjoy with family and friends. With Greenbelt and open spaces surrounding the house, it feels very private.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  The vaulted ceilings and remodeled kitchen were big benefits. And we love the huge back deck with yard behind. The house is close-in for Tahoe Donner so it is easy to get in and out.
