For 150 years, the Lake Tahoe region has lured generations of adventurers, artists, and pioneers to its shores. They’re drawn to the area for a number of reasons — ranging from the magnificent mountain landscape of the Sierras to the intense beauty of the crystal-blue alpine lake and the myriad of premier golf courses within its boundaries. Truckee, only about 13 miles from Lake Tahoe’s North Shore, is often considered the trendy first stop for most Tahoe visitors. Once a stagecoach station and stopover for the new transcontinental railroad, the sleepy mountain town now has a culture all its own, with galleries, boutiques, wine tasting rooms and a mix of old-fashioned diners, hip restaurants and of course, outdoor recreation.
Those who have admiration for the Tahoe lifestyle may someday find themselves in search of a home — either for vacation or permanent residency — that brings all of these elements together.
Built in 2019 and designed by MWA Architects, the expansive 3,416 square-foot home at 11542 Henness Road pays homage to classic Tahoe architecture on the exterior and gives it a twist with contemporary interior finishes. A warm palette of wood and stone mix in a modern interpretation of mountain living. The spacious floorplan was designed with entertaining in mind and the great room opens to the ground level patio with a fire pit. Upstairs, there is a rooftop patio with a fireplace, wet bar, and space primed for a hot tub. Two master suites and two other generously sized guest rooms offer plenty of space. There’s also a media loft, a mudroom with built-in lockers and an 846 square-foot garage. Situated on the 15th and 12th fairways of Gray’s Crossing Golf Course, the residence allows you to sit on your patio in the summertime and enjoy peaceful open swaths of green. It’s the ultimate year-round vacation escape.
