Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: We are a family with two young kids. We bought this house so our kids (and us grown-ups) could get to explore all the wonderful things that Tahoe Donner, Truckee, and Lake Tahoe have to offer. We love having all this right out your door: skiing, mountain biking, hiking, camping, kayaking, swimming, playgrounds, kids camps, archery, horseback riding, fishing, etc. We also love how peaceful it feels here in the mountains. It seems a world away from the Bay Area where we live.

Why the Owner Chose Truckee, CA, USA:
The quality of house (built in mid-2000s), the huge family room downstairs, the proximity to the rec centers, and the green belt across the street (complete with loads of beaver dams) sold us on this location.
