Property description

This luxury home is located in the exclusive Big Springs area of Northstar and comes with free shuttle service to the Village and access to the Homeowner's Recreation Center. This home has an airy spacious feel with many windows and good sun. We keep the house very clean and in excellent condition.

There is a queen bedroom suite with a full bath on the main floor, upstairs there is a master bedroom with a king bed, a queen bedroom and a 4th bedroom with four bunk beds. Near these two bedrooms there is a full bathroom, a family room with sofa, and a laundry room.

All of the beds in the house have organic wool mattress covers, 100% cotton sheets, fluffy down comforters, and soft down pillows.

The kitchen is open to the large living room with a river rock fireplace, lots of windows, a game cabinet, and a flat screen TV with Bose surround sound, also encased in a cabinet that has doors that close so you can choose to see the TV or not. There is a large deck off of the living room with lounge chairs and a 3 burner propane BBQ.

The kitchen is also open to a large dining room that seats 10 people comfortably.

The kitchen features high end cookware including: 3 stainless steel fry pans, 3 cast iron fry pans, stainless steel pots, stainless steel mixing bowls, 2 stainless steel XL roasting pans (one with a stainless steel roasting rack), a large Emile Henry dutch oven/stewpot, and many ceramic serving platters and bowls. The kitchen has all stainless steel appliances, a giant single bowl sink, and a professional gas Wolf range.

There are 2 air purifiers in the home: one in the master bedroom and one in the living room.

The home features a stunning collection of hand stitched quilts of several different genres. If you are a quilter, you will be in heaven!

In the 2 car garage, there are extra dining chairs and a high chair. You are welcome to pull your cars in and use the garage. Between the garage and the house there is a large mudroom with many coat hooks, abundant shelving for shoes, and a bench.

In the family room there are several baskets of wooden blocks, a large basket of wooden train set pieces, and several Waldorf (Rudolf Steiner) style silks and felted dolls for younger children. All the games in the game cabinet are in good working order with all pieces accounted for.

The house is located on a quiet and private cul-de-sac with open space behind the home. The backyard is level and feels very private.

The Homeowner’s recreation center features several outdoor hot tubs, a large main pool, a children’s pool, a adult lap pool, a gym, game room, and massage therapy is available. There is a very popular tennis center and a gorgeous 18 hole golf course that meanders through Martis Valley and the Mountain. Additionally, Northstar has an extensive set of hiking trails and world class mountain biking.

The shuttle service is one of the best things about staying at Northstar. It is safe, easy, convenient and free. Just call the automated number, enter where you are and it comes within minutes. Older children can easily ride it by themselves. It is very popular and well used among homeowners and guests alike.

The Northstar Resort is a full service area with a new base village that includes a rink (roller skating in the summer, ice skating in the winter), shops and restaurants. (Rental skates are available for a nominal fee). The Northstar resort is very family friendly.

We are only 10 minutes to King's Beach on the North Shore of Lake Tahoe. Here you will find beaches, playgrounds, restaurants and shopping. Going the other direction we are 10 minutes from Historic Truckee with great restaurants and shopping. For you dealers in chance, casinos are only 20 minutes away at Incline Village on the Lake.
