Own an Old Lake Tahoe Dream Home

Share News:

Ideally situated in Carnelian Bay, Calif., on the crystal blue waters of North Shore Lake Tahoe, rests the most charming waterfront retreat we’ve seen all year! Located at 3970 N Lake Boulevard is a thoughtfully designed, newly remodeled log home on a lush, .14 acre lot, offering a coveted lakefront address, surrounded by mature trees and professionally landscaped grounds.

The home affords endless recreation opportunities with an “off-the-beaten-path” feel, but sits right on the water, and is close to all things North Shore Lake Tahoe.

The dreamy 1,941-square-foot home comes complete with four-bedrooms, four-full-and-one-half-bathrooms, and multiple outdoor areas to entertain.

“It’s a great old-but-new Tahoe cabin,” says listing agent Tamara McKinney of Sierra Sotheby’s International Realty. “From here you can watch the alpenglow from the lakeside hot tub, or enjoy effortless lake access. There are endless recreational activities, and the two expansive decks are perfectly positioned for all day sun, offering unmatched views of the lake.”

Originally named for the semi-precious red and yellow stones peppering its shoreline, Carnelian Bay Lake Tahoe is widely recognized today for its Concours d’Elegance wooden boat show, and is a huge draw for those who enjoy big Mackinaw Trout fishing.

A quiet-yet-active community, the picturesque enclave combines modern convenience with classic “Old Tahoe” charm, to bring you the best of everything from world-class boating and fishing, to kayaking and bird watching.

Nestled along Lake Tahoe’s idyllic North Shore, this log home was made for embracing nature and incorporates the outdoors in its design. You’ll find walls of windows framing pristine lake and mountain panoramas that go on for miles, met by warm woods, natural stone finishes, and sophisticated upgrades for a calming, yet luxurious atmosphere.

Take one look at the open, airy kitchen, and you’ll see why it’s perfect for entertaining.

Well-appointed with ample custom cabinets, stainless steel appliances, a gas range, handy under-cabinet lighting, and a contemporary mosaic tile backsplash, it’s a great space for preparing a home-cooked meal.

A charming breakfast area overlooking the water, and nearby great room with stone fireplace, are favorite spots to begin and end the day. This is in addition to any one of the four gracious bedrooms with updated spa-like baths.

Outside, it’s all about the two large decks with unbelievable Lake Tahoe views. We’re guessing this is where we’d spend most of our time when not out on the lake having fun in the sun.

The outdoor spaces are large enough to host a crowd, from cooking-out, to celebrating family events, or simply dining alfresco and soaking up those famous Lake Tahoe sunsets.

And effortless boat access means you can easily go from back deck to boat slip in seconds, offering the ultimate waterfront amenity for those who live for the lake.

A fire pit and gazebo with hot tub add to the outdoor enjoyment.

Pristine dog-friendly beaches, plus a spectacular lake/mountain setting, make this Carnelian Bay gem the perfect slice of Old Lake Tahoe paradise. Excellent kayaking, unbeatable sunsets, and easy access to top ski resorts like Donnor and Mt. Rose, come standard.
