A modern waterfront estate on Lake Tahoe with a six-story glass staircase and huge picture windows sold for $ 31.5 million, according to Corcoran Global Living.
“Every luxurious feature has been carefully and thoughtfully planned and incorporated into this one-of-a-kind luxury home,” said Janet O’Donnell, the listing agent, in a press release. “This is by far the most spectacular waterfront property in the country.”
Nicknamed the Lake House or Cliff House, the four-bedroom, four-bathroom home was designed by architect Mark Dziewulski. Covering 8,694 square feet, the property features 98 feet of lake frontage, a steel jetty, a boat winch and two licensed buoys.
With glass and steel walls offering extraordinary views of the lake and Sierra Mountain, the 580 Gonowabie Road home was built in 2008 on a half acre lot in Crystal Bay, Nevada.
The upscale residence presents a modern look in an area known for chalet style homes.
“The house stands out because, rather than a traditional but glamorous mountain house, it is decidedly modern with a six-story glass spiral staircase at its center,” according to the press release. “For those who are hesitant to climb six flights of stairs, glass or not, there is also a glass elevator.”
Each floor has a separate purpose, the press release noted. The master suite occupies an entire floor and includes a library, a bedroom-sized bathroom and a gallery closet. Another floor has a private guest suite. The main living space upstairs offers a large living and dining area, each with a fireplace, a Poggenpohl kitchen and a kitchen-sized pantry. There is also a gym and spa. The terrace also offers a breathtaking view of the lake.
Corcoran has not identified the buyer.
The house had been on the market for some time. First listed in 2011 at $ 43 million, the asking price fell to $ 32.5 million in May 2020, according to realtor.com.
