                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2002

                  About the owner: I was born in San Francisco & raised in Marin County. I skated professionally with the Ice Follies and went on to get my lab degree at Langley Porter Hospital in San Francisco. I left the medical field to be with people 'on the happy side', to be a hairdresser! I currently am self-employed in San Rafael, Ca. 94901. I live in San Anselmo, Ca., 94960.

                  Why the Owner Chose Tahoe Paradise:
                  I bought this home in 2002, because they built an ice rink of suitable size! I have always loved South Lake Tahoe, but I wanted to be close, but far enough away from the holiday congestion! I can walk to the grocery store (summer & winter) & hike, bike, snowshoe, cross-country, snow-mobile, all out my front door! No driving! Relax completely if you choose!

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  I chose this property because of it's unique location. Close but far enough away! It is also very sunny...this is unique to Tahoe properties! I then built in all the amenities for a very special place to be....
