This stunning 4.29-acre property on the shores of Lake Tahoe, with over 660 feet of shoreline, an incredible pier and boat house, is truly the jewel of Rubicon. This heritage property was purchased by a family with deep connections to California and Nevada over 60 years ago. The discerning matriarch, an art collector, who spent summers of her childhood at a Lake Tahoe family home, selected this site after extensive exploration of the West Shore.
The mostly level acreage offers an incredible compound with a main house, a bunk house/garage with extra bedroom suite, and separate guest house. Its South East facing site means beautiful sun exposure for sunrises and lovely alpenglow evenings. Privacy doesn’t get much better than this. Situated on the south end of Rubicon and adjacent to the Gold Coast, the Tahoma market, with a super deli, and a couple of local bars and casual dining are about 10 minutes away.
Play volleyball, croquet, horseshoes, or badminton on the lawn, or sit on the viewing bench for reflective time when you’re not sunning on the spacious pier. Your boat is right there in the boat house, with other family or guest boats on the two buoys. In the morning or evening, enjoy coffee or drinks and dinner overlooking the lake on the expansive terrace where you can snuggle on a crisp evening by the large outdoor fireplace.
The 3,848 sq. ft. main house, built in 1949 is all one level, comprised of six bedrooms and five baths. The mid-century design offers the contemporary feel of today.
The kitchen and baths were updated several years ago, leaving the beautiful original kitchen cabinets intact. The great room, with an indoor stone fireplace, dining area and floor to ceiling lakeview windows, flows out to the gorgeous stone terrace with ample seating, dining areas and an outdoor stone fireplace creating a perfect setting for entertaining.
Next to the house is what was a two-car garage. It is now a bunk room with a quaint bathroom and an additional bedroom suite with separate access. Roll up doors are still there for an option to convert back to a garage.
Take a stroll over to the 2 Bedroom Guest house, built in 1960 and original! It has its own incredible lakeview deck and stairs down to the water.
This is ‘old Tahoe’ Summer Camp at its best for gracious, understated living in a serene and private setting. Summer Camp Tahoe.
