This is a rare and unique opportunity to preserve one of the few original Tahoe style homes left on the Lakefront, or for a new generation to create a custom luxury lakefront home. TRPA approved coverage came in at an expansive 11,431 square feet for the lakefront lot. (Please download our TRPA coverage report and obtain a Professional Consultation, or contact the Tahoe Regional Planning Association for assistance with the lakefront lot rebuild or new build opportunities.)
The lakefront home has been updated to provide a very comfortable living environment while still preserving the look and feel of the original Tahoe style A-frame architecture.
Recently Updated The recently updated 6 bedroom, 3 full bath waterfront home boasts 20-foot vaulted ceilings with rustic exposed dark wood trusses and floor to ceiling windows showcasing breathtaking panoramic views of the crystal clear waters of Lake Tahoe framed by the majestic Sierra Mountains. Take in incredible lake & mountain views from the large elevated back deck perfect for entertaining, or from the living room while enjoying cocktails in front of the floor to ceiling fireplace constructed of local Lake Tahoe granite rock and boulders.
The kitchen was recently updated with granite countertops and stainless steel appliances, and leads to a second patio, with unobstructed views of Sugar Pine Point State Park's towering pines and more incredible lake views.
Rich Lake Tahoe History You can feel the rich Lake Tahoe history in this one-of-a-kind lake home from its original A-frame architecture and exposed trusses, to the trophy laden shelves from Wooden Boat races of days gone by and the custom mosaic honoring the legacy of those races that are so tied to Lake Tahoe's history. The waterfront home has been enjoyed by one family for the past fifty years, and the property can be traced back to the Ehrman Mansion property before it was donated to the State of California and became Sugar Pine Point State Park.
The family's 114-foot pier is also rich in Lake Tahoe's history. It was constructed by a well-respected West Shore pier builder, Robert Pomin prior to 1950. Robert's father, Ernest Pomin, was Chief Machinist for Lake Tahoe Railway & Transportation Company, which may help explain the many railroad ties we still see around the property today. His Grandfather, Captain Ernest John Pomin, was the first and longest running Captain of the Tahoe Steamer (1890-1917), the largest steamship ever to sail Lake Tahoe. Key Area Attractions and Activities With Sugar Pine Point State Park as the home's backyard and Lake Tahoe as its front, the property is a nature lover's paradise. There are lakefront trails throughout the park, one close to the house leading to a gorgeous crescent shaped cove and white sand beach. Trails in Sugar Pine Point State Park can also be enjoyed by snowshoe or cross country ski in the winter, and once hosted the Winter Olympic cross country ski events. The estate is also less than two miles from Homewood Ski Resort, and only twenty minutes from world renowned Squaw Valley Ski Resort.
Pristine & breathtaking Emerald Bay is a short boat ride away, a destination travelers come from all over the world to Lake Tahoe to see. Emerald Bay is home to the historic 28-room Castle Vikingsholm and its famous island "Tea Room."
For dining and entertainment, West Shore Café is located less than two miles away, a popular spot for special events. Located across from the Lake Tahoe Maritime Museum & Homewood Ski Resort, West Shore Cafe offers fine dining, lakefront cocktails,romantic waterfront fire tables & unbeatable ambience. If you come via the lake, they will even valet your boat! And of course, there is the ever popular Chambers Landing with its family friendly beach areas and its familiar A-frame bar surrounded by plenty of docks for socializing in the sun.
Income Opportunity The waterfront home can provide cash flow as a vacation rental when not in use by the new owner or while waiting for building permits. It has been marketed as a vacation rental over the years in both winter & summer months, commanding generous prices. For example, a waterfront home also on the West Shore of Lake Tahoe currently listed on Vacation Rental by Owner sleeps 1-8 & rents for $6,500 to $11,900 per week with a minimum 7 day rental in an HOA with a shared pier. Ours currently sleeps 14, there is no HOA, we have a 242-foot private pier, 2 private buoys, a boat hoist, and a 450 square foot sundeck adjacent to the State Park. During the annual Concourse de Elegance Wooden Boat Show held on the West Shore of Lake Tahoe, lakefront homes are in particularly high demand!
