About the Property

5 QUEEN Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 4 FULL Baths, plus office loft Sleeps 13

VIEWS! VIEWS! VIEWS Stunning direct panoramic views,with amazing vistas of the meadow, ski resort and unique Kirkwood ridgeline. This luxury home, located in the exclusive East Meadows area, is perfectly situated for quick and easy access to the ski slopes (on-demand shuttle to your door--5 minutes to the lifts!) as well as immediate access to the gorgeous meadow for cross country, sledding, and snow shoeing ( free use of snow shoes). Designed by award winning architect, Andy Gramling and professionally decorated with original art by well known Western artists, some Native American touches. This home definitely has a WOW factor. With 5 Bedrooms/4 baths, office loft (fiber optic internet service), bunk room and large 2 car garage, this multi-level home is ideal for 3 -4 families, each with their own floors and privacy (sleeps 13). A wide and open great room with ceilings soaring to over 17 feet invite family gatherings and entertaining. Enjoy music from Bose speakers with an easy iphone connection. After an energetic day in the outdoors, relax in the hot tub just two steps out the back door!
The home has many green features, and the best is a huge solar roof system, generating 2 X the usage.

Skiing... Some of the best skiing in North America. Kirkwood Mountain ( VAIL RESORTS) is renowned for getting the best snow in the Sierra due to its higher 7800 feet elevation. Not to mention the lack of lift lines. For cross country ski buffs, step off our back deck to 3 miles of groomed cross country ski trails. Snow shoeing and dogs allowed, too. Or, across Route 88 at the Cross Country Ski Center, there are 50K of groomed trails!
Sledding (on our LL Bean sleds)is plentiful--just minutes away, as various spots around the meadow.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1994

About the owner: I originally found my way to Kirkwood out of frustration in driving Route 50 and Route 80 to the other Tahoe ski resorts. I was frustrated with the traffic and lift lines. When I discovered that Kirkwood was built between 2 mountain passes and has, for years, had the best snow in the Sierra, I was hooked. Also, the power lines are buried, offering uninterrupted views. Not to mention the lack of crowds and long lift lines. I have also learned that, due to huge logging in the Tahoe area, the Tahoe forest was cleared in the 1800's, Today's Tahoe trees are 2nd generation. Kirkwood has "old growth" magnificent trees ( some of which could be 500 years old) and is adjacent to Class I Wilderness area. As a result we enjoy some of the most beautiful scenery in the Sierra.

Why the Owner Chose East Meadows, Kirkwood, CA, USA:
VIEWS, VIEWS, VIEWS! Casual elegance, professionally decorated. All the comforts of your home in civilization--but the remote beauty of the El Dorado National Forest. 5 Bed/4 Baths gives families, couples the comfort and privacy, while the expansive great room makes gathering time a joy! The only home in the East Meadows with a hot tub two steps out the back door. The only SOLAR home for rent.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Quick (5 minutes) shuttle ride to the lifts. Cross country/snow shoe off the back deck. Hot tub two steps out the back door. Solar roof. Original Art by Greg Hawthorne. Designed by award winning architect, Andy Gramling.
