We at Curbed Ski are enthusiastic fans of log homes (and timber framing), but this Incline Village estate on the north side of Lake Tahoe is straight out of a log-lover's over-the-top, wood-paneled dreams. This 5,238-square-foot custom log home was built in 2011, won a Best of the Basin Award from the Tahoe Regional Planning Agency in 2013 and now is on the market for $4.5 million. There's nary a surface throughout the 4-bedroom, 4-bath home without a wood accent. The breakfast bar: burled wood. The game room: multiple varieties of exotic woodgrain. The soaking tub: basically a wooden boat. The sauna house in the garden that looks like it was built for a gnome: wooden. If there was any doubt that you're living in a felled forrest, we're pretty sure there's a small woodland creature carved into the former tree that holds up the kitchen. Without a doubt, the home's amenities are luxurious, but whoever buys this house is going to be in it for the timber.
