For those billionaires looking for a waterfront vacation property that does it all, the Carousel Estate in Tahoe City, California, may be just the thing to complete your portfolio of Great Homes.
Located on the “most exclusive lane” on the west shore of Lake Tahoe, the impressive residence offers 200 feet of direct lake frontage on 3.5 acres, which translates to breathtaking alpine views and access to the water, facilitated by a private marina-style pier.
Built in 1930, the estate features a total of 14 bedrooms and 12 baths, which are spread across a main lodge-style house consisting of three separate living areas joined under a single roof and connected by breezeways, plus a detached caretaker’s house that includes two separate three-bedroom-one-bath apartments.
The main building hearkens back to the days of Old Tahoe, with its warm, white-washed wooden construction, soaring vaulted ceilings, wide-plank floors, massive fireplaces, and its generous use of windows. Although the estate is grand, no question, it exudes a cozy, rustic charm that promotes a sense of intimacy—while at the same time encouraging a little extravagant entertaining.
Outside, a stone patio with outdoor fireplace and grill, plus an expansive lawn extending all the way to the edge of the lake make hosting large gatherings a breeze. Meanwhile, century-old pine trees ensconce the already secluded property.
Located at 2340 Sunnyside Lane, Carousel Estate is offered at a staggering $29.5 million.
