Waterfront Digs in Lake Tahoe Back On the Market
It was briefly off the market, but a nearly $47 million waterfront estate at Zephyr Cove in Lake Tahoe is back on the market, The Sacramento Bee reported.
The property is being sold by Sierra Sotheby’s International Realty and is located on the lake’s east shore. There’s an additional equestrian property available for another $7 million or so.
The property has a 16,700-square-foot main house that sits on 24 wooded acres in the Tahoe National Forest that was once a frequent backdrop for the NBC series “Bonanza.” The home is newer, built in 2004, and has eight bedrooms and lake and mountain views from every room. Nine fireplaces keep the place warm and inviting, too. There’s also a beach and private pier.

Custom-Built Wine Country Estate Up for Grabs
Sitting at the southeastern slope of Sonoma Mountain, “Bay Oaks” is 13-acres of old bay trees, wine country vineyard views, Mt. Diablo, and San Francisco Bay — and we haven’t even talked about the house yet.
That’s because we’re still talking about the outside, which also includes an artist’s studio, a 50-foot swimming pool, fountains, gardens, and even a treehouse.
“American artist Joseph Goldyne and his wife worked with architects Julie Dowling and Lorissa Kimm to create a home that would, to quote the official website, ‘Create a space where ‘the art of the past and the pleasures of the present unite in harmony,'” the SFGATE reported.
The 5,800 square foot home boasts four bedrooms and four-and-a-half bathrooms, a library with 15-foot ceilings, an open floorplan living and formal dining room with a built-in organ, and finishes like antique marble, jade, amethyst, and lapis.
It’s listed for $6.7 million. Want to see more of it? Head over to this story.
Encino Mid-Mod Flies Off Market In a Week
Although we’re hearing rumblings that it’s becoming harder to sell luxury properties, sometimes the just-right luxe abode comes on the market and then immediately sells, like the Strawberry House in Encino, California.
Listed for $2.85 million, the gorgeous Midcentury Modern was the backdrop for a Rolling Stone photo spread of Jon Hamm during the height of the “Mad Men” run, and also appeared in Ray Donovan, Realtor.com reported. It was also once owned by Crystal Method band member Ken Jordan, who sold the home in 2013.
The four-bedroom, three-and-a-half bath home was restored by the current owners, who have lived there for six years. They took pains to update, but also remain faithful to the Midcentury, 1964 roots by keeping the terrazzo flooring, and maintaining the glass walls that showcase amazing views from nearly every room.
Outside, a pebble-finished patio leads to a pool.
