About the property

Bask in the magnificent views from this light-filled custom Carson Valley home

This lovely Carson Valley home is 20 minutes to Lake Tahoe! Warm, inviting & filled w/ light, our 2,800 sf home feels like you are away on vacation all year. Drink in views of the Sierras while sipping lattes or wine in the sunroom after a day on the slopes!

This a wonderful vacation spot to hike, bike, ski, swim or just relax in all four seasons near Tahoe with the Sierras beckoning you to come see for yourselves! The bright sunroom is the perfect place to gather, summer or winter for games, lunch or just to read. High vaulted ceilings in the great room with overstuffed couches, French armoire and fireplace invite you to stay. Belgium antique furniture mixed with other unique pieces make this family home comfortable but certainly not stuffy. The gourmet kitchen includes a large island and breakfast nook drawing people in for morning coffee.

There is a bedroom (queen) with it's own bath downstairs. A library/den resides on the first floor stuffed with the best of books. . . truly. You won't be bored. Upstairs is the "master suite" with a queen bedroom set and a set of twin beds under the vaulted ceilings --- dressers & closets galore. Comfy beds are adorned w/ Pottery Barn organic cotton duvets. Beautiful tile adorns the large master bathroom. Additional comfy large sofas in L/R and sunroom allow for two additional beds if needed.

Kids can play soccer or volleyball on this large 1/2 acre property. Private but still close to our quaint town amenities: walk to the awesome community pool, local gym, library, restaurants, park, coffee houses and movie theaters, 5 minutes to the historic town of Genoa.

About Shawn Uhland

We are a family of four --- my three daughters, all college age, and myself who love to travel! We love the outdoors, great books, great food (eating, of course!), new places, and wonderful people. One of our favorite movies, The Holiday, has inspired us to try VRBO to help our dreams and goals to travel more become a reality. We look forward to meeting you!

Why Shawn Uhland chose Minden

We live on a cul-de-sac in the best neighborhood in all of Carson Valley. Wonderful homes and neighborhood. Overlooking farmland and majestic views of the Sierra mountains yet right downtown with easy access to all the area's amenities. 20 minutes to Tahoe and all that the beautiful Sierras have to offer: hiking, biking, boating, skiing, swimming, fishing and so much more!

What makes this house unique

Close to everything but yet you feel as if you are on great acreage with the house backing to ranch land and facing the Sierras. You are truly on vacation here. Tuck in the sunroom, the library or a cozy room with a view and truly relax, read, sip your favorite wine or latte . . . you are home!

The perfect house

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this PERFECT house for a special birthday getaway. We were greeted with a beautiful bouquet of flowers and some cookies with a Happy Birthday card...perfect start to a great weekend! The house is beautiful, clean, and has all the eminities you’ll need (from household items to the games and books). The view of the Tahoe ridge is georgous from the relaxing sunroom, and just a short drive into the city. The owner is very responsive and accommodating. We definitely recommend this house. We will be back again soon.

Thank you for a wonderful weekend ~ K&T
