We are Steve and Kathleen and our primary residence is in Marin County, CA where Steve owns a real estate company, however, our first love is the Sierra Nevada mountains for hiking, golfing, biking and skiing. We started looking for property in the Tahoe area in 2005 and found a stunning lot in the Lahontan development fronting the beautiful Lahontan golf course and adjacent lake with trout, geese, ducks and egrets; and with frequent sightings of eagles and coyotes. We bought the lot without hesitation, designed our home to maximize the lake views, and had our first Thanksgiving there in 2006. We have a passion for collecting European and Asian antiques, oriental rugs, and original art and have graced our new home with these amenities for all who are fortunate enough to enjoy this special place. It is very cozy and warm in the winter and the lake becomes a glistening frozen tundra with the dramatic backdrop of Northstar in the distance. The summer affords relaxation, barbequing and dining on the patio fronting the lake. A truly magical place!
The Owner purchased this house in 2005
Lahontan is ideally located just 5 minutes from Interstate 80 in Truckee. Nearby, historic downtown Truckee is great for shopping and dining, and there's a modern Safeway grocery store just a 7 minute drive from our house. Lake Tahoe is a 20 minute drive away, and the closest ski resorts, Norhtstar and Squaw Valley, are also directly accessible.
