Truckee house description

Looking for something clean, modern, updated, and new? This is the mountain retreat for you! All furnishings hand selected by a talented professional interior designer to create a cozy, contemporary, inviting family friendly home. Imagine: new bedding, new sofa, new chairs, new paint, new towels, new... You get the idea. The kitchen has silestone counters and craftsmaid cabinets. The house is light and airy thanks to all the natural light from a large window and multiple sky eye solar tube.

What makes the home family friendly? It is stocked with games, books, toys, sleds. There are special brightly colored plastic dishes, cups, spoons, and bowls for the little guys. There is a kids room with double bunk beds, a pack 'n play, and a booster seat with high chair tray. The large flat front yard is great for snow play. Let's not forget the 60' flat panel TV, xbox 360, and wifi. The kitchen is well stocked with everything from an ice cream maker to a panini press.

Why is it hotly located? You can walk to restaurants, including a brewery and a winery. It is less than 10 minutes from Northstar at Tahoe, downtown Truckee, the new recreational center, the local regional park, ice skating, the river walk. It is less than 15 minutes to Lake Tahoe. All the North Shore ski resorts like Squaw, Alpine Meadows, and Kirkwood are close by too.

What is the house like? There is a master bedroom that will have a king bed. Attached to the master is a private bath with a shower and a heated tile floor. Across the hall from the master is the kids bedroom with double bunk beds. Just down the hall is a bathroom with a tub/shower and a third bedroom with a queen bed. There is a large doorway between the family room with the kitchen, providing a feeling of connectedness while still offering enough separation that the kids can hang out in one area and the adults can have some privacy in the other space. There is also a large, private deck off the family room, extending your living space into the outdoors. The kitchen will have a cozy built in L bench seat and regular chairs. It has large windows that overlook the front deck and yard. The house has an attached two car garage. No fighting with scraping all the snow off your car in the morning. The driveway is flat, so even on a snowy winter day you can easily get in and out of the home.

What about the outdoor space? The front yard is large and flat and wrapped with a white picket fence. There is a large deck in both the front and back of the house. The back yard is private. There are mature birch trees and evergreens.

                  Year Purchased: 2012

                  About the owner: About us? We are an active outdoor family who love skiing, mountain biking, and hiking.

                  Why the Owner Chose Truckee:
                  Our family of four loves to play in Tahoe. After years of driving back and forth every week, we decided to purchase a home in Tahoe and make it family friendly to create a comfortable retreat for building precious family memories. When looking for a house, we first selected this neighborhood because of its fabulous location. Then we patiently waited for a house to come on the market. Very few homes in this area come up for sale. I can see why.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  When we saw this house, it was love at first sight. The floor plan was perfect for us. The way the living spaces extend into the front and back porches was exactly what we wanted. It doesn't get more picture perfect than a white picket fence with tall trees. The previous owner had put a lot of special touches into the house from closet built ins to heated floor tile in the master bath to sliding shelves in the kitchen cabinets to extra cute sink faucets.
