No detail was missed in the design and construction of the Curtis McLachlan-built home located at 1088 Lakeshore Blvd. in Incline Village, Nev. The mountain lodge-style home, which was presented with the Washoe County Award of Distinction in 2004, is now being offered by Sierra Sotheby’s International Realty for $6.95 million.
Situated on a sunny, 0.7-acre flat lot on the quiet side of Lakeshore Blvd., this gated property features beautifully landscaped outdoor living spaces thoughtfully designed to create a peaceful park-like setting.
Upon finding this home, the owners were willing to give up lake views for a flat and quiet setting where they could easily walk to the beach or let the grandkids safely ride on the bike path. Open last summer, the long-awaited three-mile paved Tahoe East Shore Trail connects Incline Village to Sand Harbor State Park. Dubbed as “America’s Most Beautiful Bikeway,” the trail system provides direct access to public beaches, coves and trails along the picturesque Nevada shoreline.
While Lake Tahoe provides a spectacular setting, the 7,049-square-foot home itself is worthy of distinction and imbues a sense of place. Many recycled woods from around the area were used throughout the home and the trees that were removed from the building site were repurposed as siding.
According to the homeowner, “We wanted our home to have a feel that fit the environment and to us this home says ‘Lake Tahoe.’ The moment we walked in we said this is what a mountain home should feel like. It was built to show the best of what Tahoe is all about.”
The spacious family room is complimented by a towering ceiling and a grand wood-burning fireplace that amplifies the timeless mountain style. “This home wasn’t built as a fad,” the homeowner said. “It will carry on from generation to generation.”
The gourmet kitchen is the heart of the home, offering a focal point and a gathering space for entertaining, celebrating holidays or enjoying quality time with the family. It features top-of-line appliances including a dual Sub-Zero refrigerator, Wolf range and a beautifully handcrafted solid walnut dining table custom built for the space.
Other features include a McLachlan signature indoor water feature designed to act as a natural humidifier to combat the dry mountain air while providing a soothing sound throughout the home.
