Description

This luxurious and private lakefront property is uniquely secluded in the middle of the National Forest surrounded by white sand beaches and an old growth forest of redwoods and sequoias, with no other homes for miles in either direction!

Main feature article in 2015 summer issue of Better Homes & Gardens Magazine

As featured in C Home Magazine 2014 by Christine Lennon:
"On the Waterfront"
Surrounded by a forest of redwoods and sequoias, this secluded Tahoe compound is re-imagined by the owners’ talented son. Though Todd Gildred recently received his master’s degree in interior design from San Francisco’s Academy of Art and is just now establishing his own design firm, TCannonDesign, he started conceptualizing his first commission—a collection of waterfront cabins on Tahoe’s eastern shore—more than 20 years ago. I've been spending summers up here since I was eight months old,” explains Gildred, 30. “My parents took us to Lake Tahoe in 1985, and when they discovered this property in the middle of a national forest, my father knew he had to have it.”

The four buildings on the property are now stunning examples of lakehouse-chic design. Gildred drew from the area’s Nordic influence, established by the post-Gold Rush families who first flocked to the area. He chose a color palette mimicking the variations of colors of the waters, the gray granite boulders, sandy shoreline, turquoise shallows and deep cobalt at the center. The Boathouse is now a sleek party room inspired by the vintage wooden boats for which Tahoe is famous. The Main House is an inviting family space built around the original fireplace. The guest cabins have whitewashed walls, exposed beams and modern kitchenettes, all designed with extended reunions in mind. “It’s camp for adults and kids,” he explains, “waterskiing, hiking, boating across the lake for a cocktail, and getting away from technology.”

PROPERTY DESIGN DESCRIPTION:

Main house
The main home engages the Nordic architectural features of log beams and mountain cabin aesthetics while embracing a contemporary layer of understated lake house elegance. This is accomplished through the use of compelling indigo and cobalt blues complimented with charcoal grays and bright whites. A continuation of lacquered woods and reflective metals are maintained throughout each home to unify the separate structures. Quartzite stone kitchen floors are reminiscent of the massive gray granite boulders of a once erupted volcano speckling the white sand beaches. High gloss lacquered redwood counters showcasing swirling wood grains reflect each cycle of seasons passed. The master suite exudes a monochromatic palate of biscotti and cappuccino to create serenity in such an intimate space. Surrounding nature is visibly inspired throughout the home, and an open plan combining the expansive living room, dining room, and kitchen invites social gathering.

Boathouse
The boathouse is directly inspired from the vintage wood boats popular of the time. Italian, Riva, and American, Gar Woods, handcrafted golden mahogany and polished metals into sleek speedboats enticing sun seekers and joyriders to experience the lake in style. The two-tone teak and holly striped floors common of old sailboats and woodies, have been abstracted by being lifted and placed on the walls horizontally in the main room. The traditional black stripes and chrome detailing were also implemented in the space. Turquoise tile work and cream stone flooring reflect the shallow lake water and sandy beaches nearby.

Chicken’s Nest Cabin
This tastefully restored cabin paints an aesthetic of a whimsical forest of toadstools, trickling streams lapping over rounded stones, ancient trees covered in green moss, and light mist drifting through the endless thicket of branches. Frosted glass, reflective metals, whitewashed walls, mocha floors, and soft green complexions invite this experience into the home. Intricate patterns and light wooded antiques are implemented to compel the Nordic origins of much of Lake Tahoe’s early architecture.

Top Side Cabin
The experience of dusk on the lake is the concept for this home. As the skies fall into sunset, heavy blood oranges, shimmering golds, shades of gray, and the ominous black of the approaching night sky fill the horizon. Nocturnal creatures emerge in the form of bats skimming the lake shore in search of food, owls perched on tree limbs, and wolf like predators hunt for prey. All of these instances in nature are introduced into the designed space creating a tribute to its surroundings and an intriguing dynamic conducive to drawing a social presence.

PLEASE NOTE:

-This home is located 10 minutes from Incline Village, past Sand Harbor, along the East Shore, down a gated, mile and half, unpaved road. Please inquire with your luxury property specialist about details and bring a reliable vehicle for access.

-Boat rental would be an ideal consideration for this remote property not only for recreational activities, but also to have timely access to lakefront restaurants and villages such as The Lone Eagle Grille at the Hyatt Incline Village, Gar Woods, Jake’s in Tahoe City, Sunnyside, and Chamber’s Landing

-The property utilities are completely “off the grid” so take note that the electrical is solar and generator powered, the water is sourced from the lake and a natural spring, and the septic tank system is emptied occasionally. Every system is completely automated so the property runs quite similar to a standard home.

-Both the satellite television and satellite internet can be slow and oftentimes unreliable. These services may or may not be available during your stay.
