About the Property

Experience the best the Sierra has to offer with this exquisite Classic Old Tahoe style estate located in Squaw Valley just across from the Olympic torches and overlooking the Truckee River. The compound includes a main house sleeping 8 with adjoining guest house sleeping 2-4. The main house features vaulted ceilings with hand-hewn beams, a unique combination of authentic Italian furnishings with lodge-like touches such as sumptuous leather couches and early American antiques. Further details include a huge master bedroom and adjoining dressing parlor, two additional twin-bedded bedrooms each with a private bath and walk-in closet, a large living area with wood burning fireplace with adjoining dining room, a family room with all the amenities, full kitchen boasting all modern appliances, and an outside living room under a protected roof just off the kitchen. Just steps from the main house and the 8 person state-of-the-art Jacuzzi hot tub is the very private pool area with dining and lounging furniture. Adjoining the pool is the darling pool house (see picture) with queen bed, bath with shower, and separate room with 2 small bunk beds. Hop on your bike and follow the picturesque bike trail along the river into Tahoe City and beautiful Lake Tahoe. World renowned Squaw Valley Village with skiing, hiking, biking, shopping, dining, and more is just seconds away. Rate per night/week/month dependent on time of year and number of guests. Ski lease available from January 4th - May 4th.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2000

About the owner: Sally is an avid outdoors person who lives full time in Sonoma California. She has been in the hospitality business for over 25 years and has two vacation properties, one in Sonoma and one in Squaw Valley.

Why the Owner Chose Olympic Valley, CA, USA:
I have always loved the mountains since living outside Denver Colorado as a young girl. I currently live in wine country Sonoma California and this is an easy 3 hour drive for me. This home and it's amazing location are truly one of a kind and I hope you'll agree with me after visiting. I purchased the property from a San Francisco couple who had the property in their family since the 1940's. The house itself was built in the 80's and is exquisite in details as the previous owners owned a design house in San Francisco and owned homes in San Francisco, Sun Valley & Italy. I feel lucky to be the present caretaker of this unique treasure and am happy to share it with my guests.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
I fell in love with this home at first sight when looking for a unique property somewhere in the Tahoe area. With it's location overlooking the Truckee River and a short bike or car ride to the lake or world famous Squaw Valley Ski Resort I couldn't resist. Not hard to fall in love with the unique furnishings gathered from the previous owner's travels to Italy and their love of Tahoe's past & present. Adding my own touches the house has been described by others as a combination of an Italian villa mixed with a classic European hunting lodge. I know you'll agree it's one of the most unique properties you will every see. The view from the hot tub to the Olympic Torch from 1960's Winter Olympics this is a home not to miss. A true Tahoe treasure!
