Ty Cobb’s Former Old Tahoe Hideaway, Glenbrook, Nevada


Offered at $5,950,000

Ty Cobb created the Lake Tahoe hideaway just a few years after his induction into the National Baseball Hall of Fame. A winding cobblestone driveway meanders into the .876-acre lakefront estate where authentic Old Tahoe flair melds with modern convenience, expansive views of the lake and mountains flood the living area through a wall of windows, and high knotty-pine ceilings and gleaming hardwood floors harmonize with the original stone fireplace. Five bedrooms—including a master suite on the main floor—reflect the natural warmth of their surroundings. Beautifully refreshed by new owners since it’s early days, the classic estate remains a work in progress, with a permitted entry gate, three-car garage, den, and extensive landscaping underway. The estate’s 76-foot shoreline presents a boater’s paradise with one buoy and an easement to share the neighboring pier once it is extended. Available separately, an adjacent vacant lakefront parcel could be combined with this mountain refuge to create a Tahoe compound like no other.
