The Pines—one of Lake Tahoe’s largest privately held estates—sits directly on a wide sandy shoreline at the end of a gated, meandering drive through parklike grounds that encompass a three-hole golf course with practice green, upper and lower trout ponds with waterfalls, and a covered bridge. Two parcels consisting of 13.6 acres with 400 feet of waterfront feature a 14,000-square-foot main residence, a 3,000-square-foot guest house, a caretaker’s cottage, a shop, and outbuildings. The contemporary mountain-style compound showcases spectacular Lake Tahoe and Sierra Nevada views. The drama begins in a magnificent living room with 35-foot ceiling and granite fireplace, and continues through the grand lakefront dining room that seats 14 to a firelit lakefront kitchen, to a master suite with gymnasium, and to a sumptuous indoor spa with window walls. A swimming pool and outdoor spa overlook the beach, shared pier, two private buoys, and boathouse. Finally, there is parking for 50 vehicles, including nine garage bays.
