Million Dollar Listings: Permanent Vacation at Lake Tahoe

by Sasha CarterApril 3, 2015

There’s just something about spending time near a picturesque body of water that washes your worries away, isn’t there? Many of us head for the lake or take a trip to the coast a few weekends each year, but it’s often difficult to get away much more than that. So if you can’t make it to the lake, why not have a lake at your doorstep, instead?
At 73 Shoreline Circle in Incline Village, Nevada, you can do just that. This picture-perfect, 5-bedroom, 6-bath, luxury lodge sits at the edge of the crystal-clear waters of Lake Tahoe, bringing nature right up to your doorstep.

Exquisite Craftsmanship in Lake Tahoe

Beyond this stately lodge’s rugged stone exterior, you’ll find an uncommon level of attention to detail. There are impressive exposed beams throughout, soaring stained wood ceilings, and timber pillars supporting the upper floor. Of course, the floors are lovely hardwood, as well. Such an abundance of fine wood lends this home a unique rusticism and richness.
The great room on the main level boasts an impressive, hand-built granite hearth fireplace. There’s also an upper-level loft with custom wood banisters that borrow the organic lines of nature to excellent effect.

Sit Back and Watch the Sunset

As anyone who’s ever spent time at Lake Tahoe can attest, the sunsets here are too beautiful to put into words. This John Brink-designed home takes full advantage of its commanding lakeside vistas, with floor-to-ceiling windows in many of the lake-facing rooms.
Of course, you can always enjoy the panorama from the expansive deck, which stretches from the great room on one end to the master bedroom on the other. Here, you’ll have plenty of space to enjoy the cool, lakeside breeze with friends. It’s a wonderful spot for a summer BBQ, or for curling up with your favorite book.

The Master Bedroom

As you might expect, your luxurious master bedroom has the best views of all. Like the rest of the home, it’s perfectly rustic and charming, complete with rich natural wood moldings, door frames, and windowpanes. Not only that, but there’s an adjoining room that’s perfect for a gym, home office, or creative studio.

For Life in This Nevada Mansion, You’re Going to Need a Boat

If you don’t already have a boat, then you’re going to need to start shopping for one before you start calling 73 Shoreline Circle home. After all, there’s no sense in having your own private pier and boat lift on Lake Tahoe, if you’re not going to moor a vessel there.
And while this home’s views of the lake are nothing short of astounding, actually going out on the water is really the best way to experience the beauty of Lake Tahoe. After spending a day skiing or fishing, you’ll return home to your lakeside getaway, shimmering warmly on the azure waters, snow-capped peaks reaching skyward behind it. It’s definitely a gorgeous sight to see, and one that can be all yours.
