Owner info

Year Purchased: 1978

About the owner: I am a professional engineer/inventor with patents related to cleaning up the environment using horizontal boring and sustainable energy using kite shaped blimps. I was a semi-finalist in Cleantech in 2013. Igrew up in Illinois and Iowa, graduated from the University of Iowa, and now reside in Reno, Nevada. My wife graduated from Cal (the University of California Berkeley) with a degree in Microbiology and advanced degree in medical technology. We have a son who graduated from U. California Davis, attended Oxford, and has completed course work for a pHD in economics and will be finishing his residency in trauma surgery at University of Chicago. His wife graduated from U. Illinois Chicago and teaches clinical Joga. My daughter graduated from U. CA San Diego, is finishing a phD desertation in literature Northeastern University, Boston while teaching at Menlo College, CA. We lived at Northstar for 4 years and enjoyed the peace, tranquility, golf, skiing, and experience that is unique to Northstar Resort.

Why the Owner Chose Truckee, CA, USA:
The choice of Northstar was easy! Both my wife and I love Lake Tahoe. We play golf, hike, swim, fly fish and I ski. Northstar is unique. The new village with over 35 shops and restauants, great snow and mountain bike parks, great views of Lake Tahoe to name a few things we like. No wonder Ritz Carlton Hotel chose Northstar Tahoe Resort as the first West coast four season resort . Oh, did I mention the great location of our house overlooking the 16th fairway of the golf course, not to mention the great furnishings, comfortable pillowtop beds, televisons in every room,completely remodeled full kitchen and bathrooms, WiFi, and leather couch and Morris chairs.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The unique benefits we enjoy at Northstar include double whammy golf and ski passes, use of the recreation center owned and operated by NPOA (Northstar Property Owners Association). The recreation center has Olympic, childrens, and year around lap pools, 3 large hot tubs, weight and sauna, video and games arcade, and multipurpose buildings, championship tennis courts, barbeque and picnic facilities, and childrens playground. Someone has to do this!
