Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: We live in Palo Alto, Both of us grew up Back east and are glad to be out here on the West Coast. I am retired from executive technology positions. Owner of Vacations-Away, Vacation Rental Company (2 in Tahoe, 1 in Sea Ranch all advertised on VRBO), I am an author working on my 2nd novel. Spouse is a Librarian with Palo Alto School System.

Why the Owner Chose Truckee:
We love the mountains, especially the Tahoe Area and the Old Town of Truckee. We purchased a home in Tahoe-Donner and decided to expand and bought this upscale 2 story home on December 2007 from the builder. It is close to everything, is private, woodsy and had the Tahoe feel we were looking for.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The home is well-appointed for our relaxed mountain lifestyle, with Asian carpets, copious original art, views, mountain look and feel. It is so well located close to every thing, yet private and quiet.
