This house successfully delivers the owners desires to create a sophisticated and yet highly functional family home while paying homage to its unique and grand surrounds. The home represents Tahoe’s architectural evolution, from mountain cabin to finely honed mountained estate. 

The home was designed to accommodate a relaxed lifestyle, yet it presents a refined and classic feel. As a busy family with two working parents, a remote office was a must; this was placed on the upper floor for privacy and quiet.  Environmental  building practices, assemblies, and materials were thoughtfully considered and implemented.

From the Judges
Judges praised the charcoal, wood, and glass mix and liked the black window outline. They noted the exterior and the “very pretty elevation.”
