Why Julie Vilardi chose Lake Forest
This home was originally built by my father-in-law in the 1960's. His talent with wood working is present throughout the home. His Austrian upbringing is obvious in the design themes of this custom built home. The entire home was recently updated both inside and out and gave us the opportunity to add many of our favorite amenities. My father-in-law originally chose this location for the natural beauty and peacefulness.
What makes this chalet unique
Peace and quiet. Ability to enjoy nature just outside the front or back door. Wonderful shopping and dining close by. Easy walk to public beaches on the shore of Lake Tahoe. Close drive to world class ski areas. Hot tub on front deck. Ping Pong table and bocce ball available for summer months.
Guestbook comments from the owner
This note comes a couple of days late; I actually wanted to write it soon after leaving your beautiful place at Sierra View
but further travels didn't allow for it!
We had such a wonderful time - all nine of us - and your home was perfect for us, in every respect.
Since five of us came directly from Bavaria to Lake Tahoe (Munich), and all of us enjoy(ed) Tyrol, as recently as last summer,
we particularly enjoyed how your dear father-in-law incorporated so many building elements familiar to us. In other words:
We felt very much at home!
Another detail frequently commented on: Every square inch in the house is used......no space wasted. And we did love the
woodwork; the "solidity" of the house; the fact that noise (voices) doesn't travel to the bedrooms.
Last not least: We were touched how lovingly you stocked the kitchen, the bathrooms, etc. We certainly found all the tools
we were looking for and it made our week, and our simple meal preparations so easy and enjoyable.
And we are happy to report that all nine of us did not feel "crowded" for even one moment!
I used the downstairs bedroom, off the living room/dining room and smiled when I even found an Anthony de Mello, SJ, book
to greet me.....the perfect choice for my night time reading!
Since I have family in Reno, NV, we hope to be able to make use of your lovely home again in the future.
I trust you received the keys in the meantime and found the house in good order. We tried to take very good care of it, respecting
your family tradition and values.
All my best - for all of us,
