Owner info

Year Purchased: 2014

About the owner: Originally from Nutley NJ we now live in the Bay Area. Always wanting a mountain house, we found Tahoe to be the perfect location. The abundant amenities yet serenity of the mountains and a short car ride from the Bay Area all make for the ideal vacation spot.

Why the Owner Chose Tahoe Vista, CA, USA:
We wanted a quiet setting in the mountains for the seclusion, but yet easy access to amenities and town. This home is the perfect combination, plus offers the privacy of the in-law suite - ideal for guests and open kitchen/great room - ideal for entertaining.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Hiking right out the back door and 100 yards from the front door to the forest, Frisbee golf, zipline and biking trails. Less than a mile to the beach and town. Private access to beach for this location. Close to major ski resorts, restaurants, shopping and golf. (12 minutes to Northstar :)
