In summer relax on the front or back decks and take in the view. Hiking and mountain biking trails start right down the street. In winter we have sledding and snow play right at the house.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2003

About the owner: We are outdoor enthusiasts from the SF Bay Area who love all that the mountains and lakes have to offer - both in summer and winter. We are avid skiers and wanted to share this sport with our children. Our families bought this home together when our kids were just babies.

Why the Owner Chose Truckee, CA, USA:
We wanted a comfortable home where we could spend winter weekends with family and friends and have the space to hang out, relax, cook. We started out as 'winter people' with a love of Squaw Valley, but we soon discovered how great summer is, too. We enjoy taking advantage of the amenities and activities offered in Tahoe Donner. And, jumping off the rocks in Sand Harbor is a must-do summer family tradition.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Quite simply - we were overwhelmed by the setting of this brand new home. The views are breathtaking. It was love at first sight.
