              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 1990

              About the owner: I built this home out of the ground after subdividing the lot in 1989 and started building in Sept. It was the drought years so was able to complete construction by April 1990. I've been living in Kona, Hawaii for 35 years until 2008 when we all know what happened with the economy and decided to come to Tahoe with the thought of staying for a couple years. Well, I'm still here and Kona still has the VOG from the volcano so I'll be sticking around awhile. I've been involved with real estate most of my life in Hawaii and California.

              Why the Owner Chose Carnelian Bay:
              Just take a look around and I built it myself so I'm very proud and feel very lucky to have what many people dream of. And you're in Tahoe, one of God's great gifts and considered the 8th wonder of the world, to some people.

              The Unique Benefits at this Chateau / Country House:
              To be truthful, the home needed the complete interior upgrade which came out great because it was time and the house deserves the best. All past guest and my friends say it's one of the best views around and a great home. You feel like you are on Lake Tahoe when you're here!
