Agate Bay house description

Enjoy the wonderful surroundings of Lake Tahoe in our gorgeous mountain home, CHARNEY CHALET. It offers over 2200 square feet of spacious living space. This retreat is newly decorated in alpine comfort and elegance. There is a newly remodeled kitchen with solid granite countertops, hardwood floors and beautiful wood appointments throughout. The kitchen has a 4 burner gas cook top with a convection oven. It is fully stocked with exceptional Gunter Wilhelm Executive Chef Series 7 pc. Knife Set (High Carbon Stainless Steel) sold at Williams-Sonoma. This is added to our smaller existing set of Michael Chiarello Napa-Style Santoku high-end knives. We have recently added a 10 piece set of Calphalon Durable Hand-Anodized Aluminum Non-Stick interior Pots and Pans with Stay Cool Handles and Oven safe to 450 degrees. This improvement should make the most discriminating chef happy. Since we frequent our Lake Tahoe home often, we look forward to having a beautifully-stocked kitchen for our own family meals, as well for our many guest renters. Professional chefs have even complimented us on our cook ware. There is a large dining table that easily seats 10. We have Fiesta Ware plates and serving platters with lots of silverware to compliment the table.

The well-furnished large Great Room has a cozy river rock fireplace as a focal point. We have lots of seating for your group to be together. Enjoy music on the stereo sound system or watch a DVD on the new 39' flat screen HD-TV. Watch a movie from cable on demand. The large living area also includes a reading nook surrounded by lovely windows. Just outside on the private deck is our Hotsprings hot tub with peek views of Lake Tahoe. There is a table, umbrella, chairs and a barbecue on the deck, as well, for enjoying the outdoor ambience during the summer months. A well-appointed powder room is off the great room. This great room offers a very large living area with high pine ceilings that allows for wonderful family time with mountain atmosphere.

The spacious master suite is on the same level as the kitchen and great room. It has a comfortable California king bed as well as a 20 inch TV with cable and DVD, and private bathroom with a shower. The King bed offers a down comforter and a choice of foam or down pillows. Included in the master suite is a comfortable lounging sofa for reading or watching movies. There is a private entrance to the deck through French doors if you want to sneak out for a hot tub after the kids are in bed. There is ample closet space.

Down stairs is a lovely Queen bed room with a down comforter and a small TV with cable. It is perfect as a second master bedroom if two families are sharing the home. Its decor is European Alpine and gives you a mountain retreat atmosphere. There is a bay window with seating for reading or relaxing. There is also a room with 2 bunkbeds for the kids to have their own space. The downstairs bathroom has 2 sinks and a full bathtub and shower. The full-sized washer and dryer is located in the large laundry room with iron and ironing board and room for delicate clothing air drying.

A private bonus bedroom is accessible from the rear of the attached garage. This is the perfect room to send the kids to play foosball or watch their own movie on a TV with DVD/VCR with cable while the adults enjoy the great room upstairs. It even has a full bathroom with shower. There is also a very comfortable and attractive wood-framed twin trundle day bed with a pop up twin trundle mattress. This room serves as a two person bedroom if more sleeping space is needed. There is an armoire for your convenience.

Linen for the beds and towels are provided for your use. In the summer, you will want to bring beach towels to use at the pool and the lake. There is shampoo, conditioner, soap and blow dryers in each bathroom.

Our home is centrally located 6 miles east of Tahoe City and 2 miles west of Kings Beach in the private Agate Bay neighborhood. Our home sits on an approximately 1/3 acre lot on one of the finest streets in Agate Bay. We are surrounded by a quiet, wooded neighborhood with underground utility wires. Fine dining is nearby at Gar Woods or enjoy casual dining at CB pizza. There are many other excellent options as well. Nevada casinos are 10 minutes away in Crystal Bay or a little further to Incline Village.

Northstar, Squaw Valley, and Alpine Meadows are less than 15 miles away for downhill and cross country skiing. Diamond Peak, Mt. Rose and Homewood are within 30 minutes of our home. There is snow shoeing available across the street in forest land. In the summer, walk to the nearby Agate Bay Sun Club to swim in the pool or play ping pong, sand volley ball or tennis on our courts. These amenities are FREE to our guests during your stay. Dog friendly Patton beach is nearby where kayaks can be rented in the summer and some weekends throughout the year. World class hiking, mountain biking, and rafting are nearby.

                          Car: Necessary

                          Our home is located close to any activity you might want in the Lake Tahoe region, yet is on a quiet flat street with no power lines so you really feel like you are in the woods. Our location allows you to avoid the crazy crowds thronging the casinos of the south shore. We are also far enough away from busier Tahoe City (7 miles) that you will truly feel you are in the mountains. But if you want a nice dinner on the lake or to rent a boat, you will not have far to go. You can even avoid going through Tahoe City to arrive at our home by going through Kings Beach. In the winter, downhill skiing is available at more than 10 ski areas within 40 minutes with Squaw Valley, Alpine Meadows, and Northstar less than 20 minutes away. In the summer, a hike up the hill or a short drive takes you to the Tahoe Rim Trail. Other trails and wilderness are also easily accessible. A large network of trails for mountain biking are right out our door. Enjoy the north shore of Lake Tahoe!

                           

                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 2005

                          About the owner: We have always enjoyed Lake Tahoe even before we had children. Now we have 4 teenagers and the whole family enjoys visiting for all seasons. In the winter, Squaw, Alpine and Northstar are all within 15 -20 minutes from our home. There is great hiking right out our door or not far away. We love to travel with our dog and that is why we extend that to our guests. Dogs love Lake Tahoe as much as their other family members. We have shown you some of the nearby hiking trails on the map.

                          Why the Owner Chose Agate Bay:
                          We have visited many areas of the Lake Tahoe region. We enjoy the north shore because it is less hectic and less influenced by the south shore casinos. Agate Bay is a very special place with a community pool and tennis courts. It is so quiet, that on a busy 4th of July weekend, in Agate Bay, you would not even know it was so busy several miles away in Kings Beach and Tahoe City. We are located on a quiet street with underground utility wires that sits across the street from nature conservancy land. We offer our home for you to enjoy Lake Tahoe and Agate Bay.

                          The Unique Benefits at this House:
                          We love spending time with our family and extended family sitting on our deck during the summer. Our lot is 1/3 acre so there is a sense of privacy, peacefulness and quiet. Our street has underground utility wires and our wooded surroundings makes for an amazing getaway feeling, while knowing that we can cook a gourmet meal or a quick snack in our new kitchen just back inside our french doors. Our home is big enough to come together in the great room for meals, hanging out, watching a movie, or playing games. Our home also allows room for privacy in the many well-appointed bedrooms and bonus room. All of our furnishing and amenities are new and it does not feel like a rental home but our home away from home. In the winter, our home is easily warmed up with our wood-burning stove or our central heater. There is a lot of room outside to play and sled. The hot tub is four steps from the french doors off the great room,so getting there year round is a luxurious opportunity.
