Hiking trails are just two blocks away and Tahoe City and the Lake Forest Coast Guard boat launch and park are nearby.

Originally constructed as a single-story 3-bedroom 1-bath ranch, it has been completely renovated to add a partial second floor. The spacious great room is bright and airy, with a large window in front, natural lighting from skylights and patio doors that provide additional light along with easy access to rear deck and spa. A pellet stove provides both heat and ambiance on cold winter days.
Downstairs, off the great room, is a spacious den/office/family room loaded with custom bookshelves, built-in desks, and custom built media center, fully wired for cable, telephone, and Internet service. Directly across the hall is a large well-appointed bathroom.
Perhaps the most unique and welcome features of the home are the two master suites, one downstairs and one up. These are truly amazing, far more than you will find anywhere else. Each suite is oversized with a full walk-in closet and spacious luxurious bathroom. Each has its own private deck area with peek views of the lake. A third bedroom is located upstairs which can sleep two people and downstairs in the den is a sleeper sofa which can accommodate two people as well.
The large south-facing rear deck is stained, natural cedar constructed with no visible nails or screws and provides ample room for relaxing or entertaining. The large spa has been meticulously maintained and is perfect for après ski relaxing or a sublime morning soak.
The exterior, deck, and interior have been freshly painted and stained and there is new flooring throughout. In addition there is high-efficiency zoned heating system with central humidifiers along with a high-capacity energy-efficient water heater. With its exceptional use of space it is truly built for comfort, convenience, and relaxation. The home has been lovingly maintained and is offered turn-key.
At the time of the renovation one of the bays in the garage was converted into a large laundry room and pantry, with plenty of cabinet space, counter space, and large washer and dryer. Approximately one-third of the garage bay remains, available for mountain toy storage. The remaining garage bay has cabinets along one wall for extra storage space. The driveway slopes gently down from street level providing easy access and plenty of off-street parking, essential in the wintertime! Martin Drive is well maintained and regularly plowed during snowfall.
