Markleeville house description

This custom home is so beautiful and has the very best view in the area. You are in the small village of Markleeville, just 20 miles from South Lake Tahoe, Heavenly and Kirkwood.

If you love hot springs, fishing, cycling, hiking, 4-wheeling, photography, history, mountains, and art, that is all at the house or just down the street. Markleeville is so close to Lake Tahoe, Bodie, Virginia City, Mono Lake, Reno, and Heavenly and Kirkwood that its a great base camp. I like to think of the house as a great place to camp if you like 5-start camping with all the comforts of home and all the advantages of a campsite in the woods.

The house has a fenced in back yard , it has a hot tub on the back deck, a bocce court, inline gas grill and comfortable patio set for enjoying the view. It is very private but also in town and you can walk to the store, the bar, the restaurants. Trout fishing is just 1 block away. Drive 4 miles up the road and sit in Grover Hot Springs. You can walk your dog on endless dirt roads and trails. 4 wheeling everywhere. Numerous lakes on public lands just a short drive away. Build a log fire in the house and enjoy. Or grill outside on an inline gas grill. These are things that are hard to find these days.

In addition, you will enjoy a beautiful log home that feels like pioneer days but has all the comforts including a viking stove, jacuzzi bath tub, wood burning stove, and views out of all windows.

Of course the house has WiFi - cell phone reception is limited although my Verizon phone gets a signal.

Email me with more questions and Ill be happy to reply.
