LOCATION: Nestled amidst mature cedar and sugar pine trees in a bucolic setting on the shores of Lake Tahoe, Greystone Tahoe is a sprawling family estate that offers a private retreat rich in historic character. There are three dwellings—the main house, a picturesque cabin, and lakeside bungalow—spread out across 1.4 acres of landscaped grounds, which together create one of the most impressive estates in Tahoe City.
MAIN HOUSE: The entrance to the estate winds through the manicured grounds and forest leads to the six-bedroom, 8,168-square-foot main house. Built in 1998, the grandly curved proportions of the primary home evoke a historical grandness that comes from the reclaimed cobblestones used to craft the walls. These richly patinated stones—from which Greystone Tahoe takes its name—were initially transported from Europe in the ballast of ships and later used to pave the streets of San Francisco. In their new setting, they evoke a magical character that speaks to the surrounding natural beauty.
The timber-clad interior of the main house is a celebration of Tahoe vernacular—think soaring cathedral ceilings, enormous picture windows, flagstone floors, and finely crafted timber details. Designed to entertain large groups of family and friends, this estate is an entertainer’s palace with an expansive great room with a cobblestone fireplace, a fully equipped gym, a game room, and a pool. The stately home split layout home allows maximum privacy with two wings connected by a log stairway and breezeway. The dramatic master suite features vaulted ceilings, a cozy fireplace, and four elegant additional suites for guests are located on one wing. The youth bunk room in the adjacent wing makes it seem like the kids are on vacation every day. As an added plus, the interior spills seamlessly out to a large deck that overlooks the treetops and provides glimpses of the lake, with a stair that winds through the forest to the shore and a private jetty.
A large grand log stairway and upper breezeway connect the two wings of the home and allow for seamless movement. Other attributes include radiant heating throughout, alarm, Crestron sound system, media room, pool and fitness room, office & bunk room all on top of a 1623 square foot garage and workshop.
THE CABIN: Adding to the historical character of the estate is a quaint, four-bedroom cabin, which is thought to have been built in the 1940s before being reclaimed, restored, and relocated to its present location. Offering the ultimate seclusion for guests or visiting family, the 1,455-square-foot, four bedrooms, two baths cabin boasts pine paneling to the walls and ceilings and distressed virgin grain fir floors, with a deck overlooking the rolling lawns.
THE BUNGALOW: One of the highlights of the estate is, of course, its lakeside location—and the property capitalizes on this with 50 feet of private sandy shoreline, its own pier, two buoys, and a 6,000lb boat lift. Overlooking the pier is a 351 square-foot lakeside bungalow with a kitchenette and full bath, offering a getaway for guests or convenient amenities for those enjoying the lake.
