About the Property

House, 4 Bedrooms + Den, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 12)

This is a beautiful estate like setting with gorgeous gardens and mountain view. We back up to forest service property and a trail called the 06 which enables you to access many trails in the area in an instant. We have a relaxing 4 bedroom home with all amenities you could imagine. It's just the perfect getaway home.

We have a main floor master bedroom with king size bed, 44' television, walk-in closet and ensuite bath. There are 3 bedrooms and den upstairs. 2 of the bedrooms each have 2 twin beds. The 3rd bedroom has a queen. The den is set up with a sofabed and is easily another bedroom. It also has a television and game station. There is a large family room with new 42' television and fireplace downstairs. The kitchen is attached and open to the living room. There is also a separate dining room attached to living room.

The home is open concept and was built in 2000 so it is up to date and clean. We have sleds available for use. The garage is not available for use since we use it as our personal storage. The home also provides onsite laundry room. We have powder room on main level as well.

The detached chalet room provides a great escape to get some alone time or enables you to provide more room for guests. It includes a sofa which converts to a bed which is perfect for viewing the stars from your own private bedroom or reading your favorite book. It is also a great place to conduct work without being attached to the home and noises of young children. There is a hammock area with a view of the mountains of Tahoe Donner.

We also have a fabulous grill and deck area in the back of the home which is a favorite location for us. In the mornings the front patio/lanai is the perfect place to enjoy your coffee as you enjoy the warm sun coming up in the east. There is a fountain there that provides great ambiance. The view of the gardens is breathtaking.

In the winter you will enjoy being 10 minutes from Northstar and close to many other ski resorts in the area. You can also cross country ski, snowshoe or snowmobile out of the home in seconds without driving anywhere. Perfect and no crowds. Also you have sleding for young children and the street is the perfect place for young children to learn to ski. Mine did.
The driveway area is huge and provides a space to allow for a boat or rv to be parked. (owner ok necessary) Also there is a basketball hoop and large area for play. Huge grass area for volleyball as well.

Take a little time out of your busy life and enjoy what we have to offer in the mountains. The perfect getaway and the perfect setting for you to ease into the relaxation you deserve without the crowds. The best of both worlds. We provide the setting you provide the time.
Enjoy our home and please treat it with the upmost care as you would your own home. We take great pride in knowing that we have such a special place to enjoy and would like to have it to enjoy for years to come.

Cleaning service- weekly or monthly can be arranged. My cleaning lady has been a friend for over 10 years and is a trusted employee. She can come in an provide you with linen changes, housecleaning services daily, weekly, or monthly.

Keywords: Estate setting, flat lot with gorgeous gardens.
Feel like you've escaped to Northern italy in Tahoe. Separate Chalet Studio. Martiswoods Estates is a hidden gem...close to everything.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: We are a family of four that have lived all over the country and traveled the world. We have lived in the south, the northeast, Southern California, Michigan and extended periods in Europe. Currently, we live in Newport Beach California. We work hard and play hard. Life is a journey and we are so pleased that Tahoe has been the constant in our lives. What a beautiful place to call home.

Why the Owner Chose Truckee, CA, USA:
We lived here full time for a few years before moving to Southern California for work. I spent my youth in Tahoe vacationing and my husband and I were married in Tahoe City 22 years ago. We love the mountains and what the area has to offer. We plan to make this house our permanent home again some day. We work hard to be able to keep this home up to date, clean and a perfect getaway. Please help us to keep it that way as well. It's just the perfect place to enjoy a family vacation or staycation.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We love that the property has a beautiful deck with a view and firepit. We spend many nights enjoying this feature. Also the fact that the 06 trail is directly behind our home is great for cross country skiing, snowshoeing, hiking, and biking. We take full advantage of the fact that you can get all the way to Northstar or Tahoe City on that trail. The neighborhood is quiet and considered a hidden gem. We love how close we are to everything without all the crowds. We escape back to our home and enjoy the peace and quiet.
