    That living room is something else, with those crazy pillars. It looks like the lair of some evil mountain villain. The rest of the house looks unappealing. I am not a fan of Tahoe anyway. It always feels like a mountain theme park as opposed to the real thing. 19 million. No way will they get anything close to that.

      Robert,

      Tahoe isn’t a fan of you. Best you’d stay away! LOL….

    The foyer and living room are spectacular. SO NICE! I especially like how they use glass on the roof of the living room to open it up even more. SADLY, the rest of the home is incredibly uninspired. It’s as if the architect spent months designing that perfect viewpoint when you open the door, but forgot that he had the rest of the house to design. I also don’t really like the slate floors…I think a highly polished wooden floor would have worked better.

    And I have to cringe at that price. Mighty expensive for something you would only use for a couple months out of the year. I guess this is perfect for the billionaire who already has homes in Palm Beach, Beverly Hills, NY and Monaco but doesn’t want to live in Aspen.

    The price is ridiculous, although I must admit the foyer and living room is impressive. It kinda reminds me of the Wayfarers Chapel in PV, it has that celestial thing going on. I can see this house going for 10mil, maybe even 14mil for this lakeside house. Lake Tahoe has one of the clearest water in the US. And imagine in winter when the snow sits on the huge glass roof and the head on views of the icy lake, that would be an impressive sight.

      The foyer and living room are spectacular in person. I’ve been there. This house would never go for 10MM. You clearly don’t know the Tahoe market. The price puts it in an exclusive range, but the craftsmanship is top notch. Above all, it’s all about location, location, location and this house has a fantastic location relative to the best skiing in the area for die hard skiers, Squaw Valley.

    I simultaneously love and hate this place. I’ve looked at this listing before and the setting, location, and exterior are all beautiful. The interior has its moments, but, as Daniel said, it seems as if all the effort was spent on the entrance foyer. I’m not even THAT fond of the foyer. It’s certainly dramatic, but it reminds me too much of a mall or a church. In fact, it could pass for one of the local malls here in the Seattle area: http://thebellevuescene.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/07/Full-Circle.jpg. The columns look very much like those that are in a Chinese restaurant here in town, just taller. The rest of the house is very average looking. There are some nice details, but overall it seems to be nothing special. I do like the bedroom that’s in the turret, but the bed should be turned 90 degrees so that it faces the windows, and someone entering the room sees only the back of the headboard. It looks awkward the way it’s currently placed. The kitchen is a big disappointment; there was so much that could have been done, and they want for overly simple, with some fake distressing on some cabinetry. The dining room is one of the most boring rooms I’ve seen in a house in a while. I do like the master bedroom and bath, but so many rooms are lacking much detail. I would have liked to have seen the house done in a more “cosmopolitan lodge” style. So many missed opportunities…

    As for price, it seems too high. The location is great and that much lake front is rare on Tahoe anymore, but it’s only on 1.5 acres and is probably several million dollars overpriced. There are smaller houses on much larger lots for less than half this. Maybe that’s why it’s been on the market for almost 2 years.

      The columns are certainly a matter of personal taste. They are crafted from rose wood and are stunning in person. I loved them. With regard to the turret bedroom, the bed is facing the perfect direction. The windows that you would point the foot of the bed at is looking into the neighbors yard/direction. Although, the foliage are more than adequate to insure a sense of privacy. The way the bed is facing provides a peek at Lake Tahoe when waking up in the morning. But I guess you would have to actually spend time in the room itself to see that the furniture’s placement is perfect!

      Yes, the price of the home is certainly pricy which does account for its time on the market. But everything in life in negotiable within reason and also accounts for the fairly substantial price reduction in recent weeks.

    I like it. Very beautiful. Lake Tahoe seems like a really nice place, but this home sure is expensive. In all honesty, for 20 million, I’d head to Aspen, Palm Beach or the Hamptons instead

    The entry/ living room looks like a hotel lobby. Not a fan of the slate floors, and that built in seating along the main staircase has to go. It looks entirely too uncomfortable to sit on for any reason. The theater is nice, and just the right scale, with an appropriate amount of seating, and natural light.

    I have no idea about the market out there so I won’t comment on the price.

    This house is amazing, Tahoe is my favorite place on earth. While I do think it is a little overpriced.. I think it is just because of the location, while it is still lakefront, it isnt Incline Village or Zephyr Cove… still very convenient though

    By the way, for everyone saying theyd rather head to Aspen or the Hamptons…WHY? Theres absolutley nothing there besides money, Tahoe has everything one with $$$ could ever want. Best ski mountains in North America along with some of the best watersports and natural beauty on a lake anywhere in the U.S along with casinos and awesome nightlife…just saying..

    I like it. You don’t expect a entry that huge/impressive at this one when you driving towards the house/front door. I like the whole idea of big windows, the use of wood and lakeside living.

    I just love that last picture. Must be amazing to live like that.

    LOVE this house….and almost all the rest of it. My main beef are those pillars in the foyer……….they’re utterly cartoonish, and terrible. Other than that…..this place is breath taking as far as I’m concerned. With everyone saying that they found the vast majority of the rest of it boring/bland & uninspiring, I agree, but only to a small point. Decor CAN be changed you guys! And so can light fixtures! (the dining room) The location, VIEWS, space, amenities and EVERYthing else about this place are stunning……along with that HEROIN-INDUCED PRICE. But still gorgeous, no doubt.

    The horrors! All that dough for a house that screeeams referential, and not even educated, subtle referential, but stoopid, generic referential. I wonder if the designers describe it as a “Victorian?”

    My jaw just about hit the floor when I first saw that entry…but then as I enlarged the picture and perused the rest of the images, I got more and more disappointed. On closer inspection, the entryway and great room look more and more like (as said several times above) a mall or a hotel lobby or a ski lodge. Just too big and overblown and….commercial almost. And I have to agree that the rest of the house is utterly average, especially that kitchen. To me, the whole lakefront cabin/lodge style of home is all about rustic, cozy, casual living. While the raw materials of that impressive central area of the house live up to this expectation, the sheer size of the space and its execution force it into a different realm, and I’m left feeling conflicted about the living space, which is not how I should be feeling in this type of home. The degree to which this portion of the home is overdone negates any warm fuzzy feelings I have for this style of architecture. Disappointing.

    Well so far the reviews arent as good as id expected when i first saw this place but all i have to say is that I AM IN LOVE. I’ve said it before on here and ill say it many more times… i love quality woodworking!! As everyone has already pointed out that foyer/entrance is absolutely breathtaking.. i dont think it looks anything like a hotel/mall lobby like a few people have said but thats just me. now as cool as the foyer is i dont particularly like the idea of the second floor being split into two parts the way the stairs are (i.e. it looks like if you were upstairs say on the left youd have to go back downstairs to go up the other set and get to the other side). That window wall in the living room is really tight and those windows on the roof are phenom.. the dining room and the kitchen are nice as far as im concerned (at least nicer than what im working with) but definitely not $20M nice. I personally like the stone floors (especially if they have radiant heating) i just feel like wood floors would be overwhelmingly wood-y for lack of a better word. I think the seating area built into the side of the dining room stairs is rather unique. That master room is ballin! but like Grrrowler said that bed needs to be rotated. I really like that downstairs wine tasting area, more specifically the walls leading down the stairs… thats really cool looking. Home theatre and working rooms are both nice. Great location on the lake!!!!
