Real Estate Pick of the Week – 585 Stewart McKay

Tahoe offers many private resort communities, and Lahontan is the well-established veteran among them.  Developed almost 18 years ago, Lahontan has grounded its roots and demonstrates a great market track record.  My real estate pick of the week is a brand new construction in this timeless club.  585 Stewart McKay in Lahontan offers all of the new home characteristics that Tahoe resort buyers are looking for, at a remarkable value.   

Privacy is naturally a characteristic sought after by Tahoe homebuyers, while proximity to amenities is almost always equal in importance. 585 Stewart McKay offers both.  Meander through the pines and in just a two minute walk, you will arrive at Lahontan’s community lodge.  The lodge amenity offers access to the private spa, gym, restaurant and golf shop.   The championship Tom Weiskopf designed golf course is manicured to perfection while the men’s and women’s golf clubs will keep you busy with a full calendar of events. 

The custom interior design of the home is the icing on the cake.  Amongst other custom details are hand hewn timbers from an Elkhorn gold mine, antique reclaimed Douglas fir floors, native granite floor-to-ceiling fireplace and a reclaimed corral board ceiling harvested from horse corrals in Idaho and Montana. The 4 bedrooms, 4.5 bathrooms combine with a recreation room and a 3 car garage to create the 3,850 sq.ft. of custom living space.  Below are some additional details that will confirm the value of this brand new custom Lahonatan home:

•    Family room pre wired for surround sound
•    Pre-wired for Lutron Radio Ra integrated lighting system
•    Floor to ceiling native granite fireplace and hearth with reclaimed corral board
•    Custom handmade reclaimed Douglas Fir front door and matching sidelights
•    Emtek door hardware
•    Old California Lantern Co. exterior lights
•    Custom iron railing on front patio pavers
•    Antique reclaimed wrapped beams in great room
•    Heated floors in all tile bathrooms
•    Sierra Pacific windows with knotty alder interior
•    Knotty alder trim detail through house

If you settle on a nice evening at home, the layout of the patio and great room will leave your eyes no time for the television. Framing an epic view of Northstar’s Lookout Mountain the south facing patio and great room were specifically placed by detail-oriented builder John McCabe and well-known architecture firm Ward/Young.  A supreme bonus to this home is the location. Across the street are two privacy lots which will secure the pristine mountain and meadow views.  Upon setting foot at this property, you will instantly feel the seclusion and perfection of a magnificent custom home. Lastly, there is still time to collaborate with the builder in order to actualize your own visions of customization.
