    Make this extraordinary year round lakefront estate on scenic, historic, Fallen Leaf Lake your life changing reward! Rarely, has a property of this caliber become available. Superior design, masterful craftsmanship, top quality materials and elements, and an incredible location come together to create a truly modern and quintessential High Sierra lakefront family compound . The private lakefront area includes 2 piers creating a safe harbor, a section of sandy beach, and a lakefront lawn area.  The views from the lakefront are sublime. Heading up from the lake are 2 guest cabins, each with a living area, bedroom, and private bath.  The 3 bedroom, 3 bath main house is a few steps higher and commands spectacular views of the lake and peaks. Perfect for entertaining large or more intimate groups, the home is extremely well conceived with a first class gourmet kitchen, dining room, great room, study, family room and workshop. The grounds are amazing, especially with wildflowers in bloom.


    Designed in the High Sierra vernacular by renowned San Francisco architect, George Homesy of EHDD (Esherick, Homsey, Dodge & Davis), the  estate blends an old mountain cabin feel with modern amenities and conveniences.  Concrete, peeled lodgepole logs, board and batten cedar siding, corrugated steel roofing and abundant glass are the rustic bones and skin. The inner workings include radiant floor heat, propane and electric redundancy boilers and water heaters, heated roofs for snowmelt, Rumford fireplaces and free standing wood stoves.  A 30KW backup generator system and 1000 gallon propane reserve ensure that you will not be kept in the dark should the power go out. Homesy has utilized window placements and a large skylight in the middle of the living room to bathe the spaces with natural light.  Mike Zanetell of Fallen Leaf Lake’s Z-Builders, considers the estate to be one of his favorite top quality career accomplishments. The tradesmen and subcontractors who worked with Mike to create this masterpiece would heartily agree. The home is featured in “Patterns of Home”, the Ten Essentials of Enduring Design by Jacobson, Silverstein and Winslow Published by Taunton Press.

    The property has been conceived and constructed with active families and friends in mind. The kitchen, dining room, and entertainment areas can easily accommodate large groups, while the guest cabins and secluded areas on the property give separation and privacy from the main house when desired. There are numerous areas to gather and a few more to hide away to. The property has ample storage areas for seasonal clothing, equipment and toys. Year round living at Fallen Leaf Lake is a reality here.

    The grounds have been expertly designed to take advantage of the natural beauty of the gently sloping land, surrounding towering peaks and the pristine lake. Boulder retaining walls, stone steps, and wildflower gardens areas are complimented by the sounds of the waterfall and stream feature as well as the lake lapping at the shore.

     There are numerous exquisite details to discover. Notable are the Port Orford cedar shower rooms with copper sheet shower pans, the hidden stereo fans above the massive glulam beams, and the Bouquet Canyon stone and vertical grain fir floors.  An office with high speed satellite internet provided by EXEDE enables you and your guests to “work from home”.  The 6 burner Wolf Gourmet range, a Miele electric convection oven and plenty of counter and storage space in the Lakeview kitchen make cooking and meal preparations a pleasure.  Up the hill is a custom stone rotisserie BBQ pit for major cook outs.  Two Miele dishwashers make cleaning up a snap.

    World class day hiking, rock hopping and backpacking is steps away in the nearby Desolation Wilderness. In winter, cross country skiing and snowshoeing is out your back door.  Fishing, boating, sailing, waterskiing, paddle boarding, kayaking and canoeing are just out front on the water. Read a book, relax or nap at water’s edge or up on the hill behind the main house. Visit with neighbors; grab a bite or an ice cream at the Fallen Leaf Community Area. Essentials and more are available at the Fallen Leaf Store within the Community Area. A Post Office, marina, and boat ramp are also available at the Community Area.  Stanford Sierra Camp, owned and operated by Stanford University sits at the South End of Fallen Leaf. Consider becoming the newest member of this very special community.

    Downhill skiing, nightlife, restaurants, shopping, services and all that South Lake Tahoe has to offer is a short drive away. The Lake Tahoe Airport in South Lake Tahoe caters to general aviation with an 8500 foot runway and full aviation and ground transportation services. Commercial Airlines fly to the Reno-Tahoe International Airport in Reno, Nevada.
