Luxury, refinement, beauty. Our architecturally designed home with unobstructed Donner Lake views offers tranquility and spaciousness with easy access to the lake, directly across the street from public piers. Feel as though you are cruising on a yacht. Views are sensational year round. The ceilings are 25' high, soaring with light from every window, creating an architectural design feature called 'borrowed light.' The beautiful, reclaimed hardwood and Sierra slate flooring are heated for your comfort. The practical kitchen is well equipped and offers stainless steel appliances and granite counter tops. Studio available for rent if additional space is needed (sleeps 2). Available to tenants renting Main House only. Both units are comfortably furnished with clean lined, quality pieces.
The upper level has three comfortable, private bedrooms plus a loft with two twin-sized futons. The master bedroom has a spacious, adjoining bathroom with jetted tub, glass shower and double sinks, crafted of hammered nickel. The other two bedrooms, named Creekside and Lakeside, have a queen sized bed in each and both share a bathroom on the upper level. Quality linens and towels are provided, plus soap and shampoo.
The lower level offers a clutter-free, wide open floor plan for gathering as well as quiet seating for reading or conversation. The Great Room has a large, Italian leather, sectional couch from which to relax in front of the fireplace or watch tv. The side office has a work desk and small couch with views to the side yard, especially beautiful in the snow. Lighting over the dining table is dimmable so you can choose your mood, low light for romantic dinners or blowing out birthday candles to brighter light for board games.
