With an architectural vocabulary of stone and timber, the 'Star House' presents the rare opportunity to own a slice of classic high Sierra real estate. In an extraordinary location, the 'Star House' is your ideal mountain Base Camp. This prized level lot backs up to Washeshu Creek. This property is in one of Olympic Valley's best locations: the sun-drenched level east end near access to Highway 89 and the Truckee River. The split-level residence offers 1,580 square feet, two bedrooms, two baths, and an oversized 2-car garage. Unique post-to-tree trunk tie-down rafters and generous use of specialty woods throughout the home provide a warm Tahoe feel. Large windows amplify the changing seasons of the natural landscape. Expansive decking, with a hot tub, guarantees your front-row seat to creekside serenades and unspoiled beauty. Upon entering, your eye is drawn toward the vaulted, open-beam ceilings. Tall, angular windows allow for maximum natural light. Redwood panels and a stone fireplace wrap you in a Tahoe High Sierra forested ambiance. Stone and rock work accents compliment the wood craftsmanship throughout the interior. Enter into the distinctive glass gazebo-covered south-facing kitchen. Find a cheerful red tiled generous-sized island with a six burner cook-top, double ovens, pantry, two sinks (use one as a beverage station for the nearby dining room); glass fronted display cabinets, drawer and wall storage, a bright breakfast nook. Flowing from the kitchen, the open dining room features beautiful forest views from a wall of windows; there is enough space to seat 10. The main living space is flooded with light by ceiling-height windows, which open onto an expansive creekside deck with hot tub. A natural stone fireplace anchors the space. Off of the main hall is a cozy and private guest room with an adjacent full bath; use as a guest powder room. Closets, cabinets, and additional storage are conveniently located in this west wing of the house. The result is a convenient entry-level living, sleeping, cooking, and entertaining space. For an ultimate private sanctuary, the spacious and bright primary suite with large walk-in closet is located downstairs off the main living space. View and hear the creek through a 'window wall' looking into the property's forested east side. The oversized en-suite bath features custom glazed tile counters and walls, dual ceramic sinks, and a large jacuzzi soaking tub, perfect for soothing sore ski muscles. A walk in shower completes the spa like facilities. Steps from the front entrance under a covered walk way is an oversized, 2-car garage, with extra length. It includes laundry facilities and unfinished space - plumbed and ready for expansion. How about a studio apartment with lofted sleeping quarters? The possibilities invite your creativity. You and your guests will appreciate the level driveway with parking for four or more vehicles. The 'Star House' invites an astute buyer to discover what makes Olympic Valley and the high Sierra so desirable.
