Lake Tahoe, California, has had an incredible amount of snow this winter, so there’s no better time to buy if you’ve been thinking of scoring a ski home. And if you’re more interested in a contemporary take on mountain architecture, consider something like this five-bedroom, four-and-a-half-bath home in the new Clear Creek Tahoe community.
Located on the eastern slope of the Carson Range—about 20 minutes from Incline Village and skiing at Heavenly—Clear Creek Tahoe consists of 2,136 acres surrounded by national forest and is part of a growing trend of year-round mountain resort communities. Amenities include a Coore & Crenshaw golf course, access to a lake and ski house on Lake Tahoe, and a family-friendly pool and tennis center.
The custom 3,650-square-foot home is built with the outdoors in mind. A spacious great room includes the kitchen, living room, and dining room, all with views to the forest beyond. Giant windows soar to the wood ceilings, and a long horizontal fireplace works as a central gathering place. An overhanging roof provides a covered patio area, and an outdoor fireplace off of the dining room aids in indoor/outdoor living. Bedrooms, including a bunk room for kids, offer more views and an additional deck off of a flex room.
