Just listed by Katie Tyler and Tahoe Mountain Resorts Real Estate for $4,695,000
Tucked in the trees on a spacious and serene 4 acre site, this magnificent custom estate property at Martis Camp is like nothing you have ever experienced. From the moment you walk in the door, you will notice the meticulous attention to detail and craftsmanship throughout the home. Almost everything you see has been handcrafted with the use of local and reclaimed materials. You will not find these details replicated anywhere-making this a truly unique home.
Each room has its own story, from the massive reclaimed wood beams whose origin was circa 1880’s homesteads and barns in the Mt. Shasta area. The solid native Sierra Sugar Pine doors, Wormy Chestnut flooring and heirloom handmade cabinetry and shelving promote a feeling of familiarity, like the home has been around for generations even though it is brand new.
The interior presentation of materials in each room will reveal to you a feeling of timelessness while embracing an Old World theme. The essence of this design is captured in the mixed-use of custom handcrafted tiles throughout the home. Inspired by a 14th century monastery in Barcelona, handcrafted terra cotta tiles greet you upon entering the home. Each bathroom has a theme, for instance the master bath tub face is finished with tiles engraved with intricate medieval deco designs. It is a pleasure to absorb the feel of each room and appreciate the thought that went into every square foot of this estate.
Beyond the materials used, you will feel the intent of enjoyment and appreciation of a cozy forest retreat in each room. By definition, a retreat is somewhere to get away, or to be removed. I can’t think of a more appropriate place to define the word “retreat” than this home. Each bedroom has its own bath, there is a place for everyone to have some quiet time or to gather depending on the mood. There is no sense of being in civilization, you are surrounded by quiet and forest, with some views of Northstar in the distance.
However, if action is what you want all of the amenities at Martis Camp can be accessed just by taking a short walk out your door. In less than a minute, you can enjoy the putting park, 5 minutes will get you to the Barn and fishing pond. A shuttle can pick you up at your door and take you to the lodge at the base of Lookout Mountain for a ski day in less than 10 minutes. It truly is the best of all worlds.
