The Skinny: Nestled in among the big conifers 20 miles north of Lake Tahoe is the Flight House, a nifty new home from the Sacramento firm Sage Architecture. Located in Martis Camp, a second-home development that professes to be welcoming of interesting custom designs, the cedar- and Corten steel-clad house cuts a distinctive figure with its curving glulam beams and cantilevered prow. The interior of the split-level home is arranged around a central great room, with the four bedrooms radiating out around it, and the aforementioned prow—which is glassed in on three sides—contains the master bedroom and a study with views of the forest and Sierra Nevada Mountains. There's also a kids bunk room and play area, and for the dog owners out there, a special message: "the home is equipped with the furry friends in mind with perimeter dog fencing, dog door and dedicated secured dog run area off the laundry room." Flight House, which comes with two acres and an option to build a guest house, is asking $4.895M.
