Location: Truckee, Calif.
Price: $6.795,000
The Skinny: Hard-edged modernism comes to the ancient conifer forests outside Truckee, California, in the form of this glassy L-shaped home designed by the excellently named N.Y. architect Blaze Makoid. Located in the Martis Camp luxury development near the golf course and extensive ski-trails of Northstar California, the $6.795M spec home is "geared for the active family" but also has "room to breathe and relax," the latter point mainly because the architect buried the kids' rumpus room deep within the lower level, far, far away from, say, the hot tub. The views of the surrounding mountains fill the floor to ceiling glass walls, and the home was built to blend into that spectacular scenery by engaging in minimal site grading and by using organic materials as siding. The five bedroom, 6,000-square-foot retreat is newly built, and seeking buyers who particularly enjoy the potent combination of modernism and "the essence of high mountain living."
