Crystal Pointe—the quintessential Lake Tahoe estate—commands over five acres of secluded private lakefront from 16,232 square feet of total living space in the main, guest, and beach houses that cascade down a magnificent hillside surrounded by pristine forest. Designed to honor the natural essence of the land overlooking the sparkling waters of Lake Tahoe, rare architectural elements include two glass funiculars connecting the four-bay garage with the main home and beach house. Sculpted streams and waterfalls weave through level gardens amid the stunning landscape, their peaceful grandeur backdropped by awe-inspiring lake views. The single-level main home creates the enchanting illusion of floating over the lake from all public rooms and the master suite. Floor-to-ceiling windows, soaring wood pillars, wind-swept willow railings, a massive granite fireplace, and dramatic skylight frame the unobstructed 180-degree lake views from the grand hall. The formal dining room, its centerpiece a table that seats 10, boasts granite and travertine flooring, a crystal chandelier, and an oval tray ceiling. A chef’s dream kitchen offers granite slab countertops, a Sub-Zero refrigerator and freezer, Dacor six-burner gas cooktop and double ovens, two Miele dishwashers, and a walk-in pantry. The adjacent rustic dining area with fireplace opens to an expansive private deck. Leather padded doors open to the handsome office library adorned with Brazilian mahogany floors, library shelves with a rolling ladder, and a granite-and-mahogany fireplace with hand-carved mantel. An English Pub style billiards room, complete with antique Brunswick-Balke-Collender billiards table, is warmed by a stone fireplace, faux-painted barrel ceilings, and a handmade chandelier. The Art Deco multi-level theater with refreshment room and hand-painted-sky ceiling turns into a starry night as the lights dim; ten down-filled leather seats face the 16-foot screen. An attached guest house, accessed through French doors, offers a cozy and comfortable firelit living area, kitchen, and four suites, two with fireplaces and private decks. A separate entrance opens to the magical gardens bejeweled with nature-inspired sculptures in hand-carved wood and bronze. A thundering water feature pools into serene ponds as the meditation garden beckons. A glass funicular carries guests to the stunning beach house with bi-fold glass doors that open to embrace indoor/outdoor living. A magnificent waterside residence in itself, it comprises a great room with floor-to-ceiling granite fireplace, a 12-seat dining room, a kitchen to rival that in the main home, and an elevator-accessed lower level offering two themed suites: Sugar Pine and Redwood. The terraced beach area leads to 525 feet of lakefront, where four buoys and a seasonal 32-foot floating barge provide access to water-sports activities.
