857 Lakeshore Boulevard, Incline Village, Nevada, United States, 89451
Nevada’s ‘Castle On Lake Tahoe’ has sold for $17,750,000 after sitting on the market for 4 years. It previously sold in June of 2013 for $15,500,000, and was more recently listed for $26,000,000. It was built in 1983 on a double lot with a rare 180-feet of frontage along Lake Tahoe and architecturally speaking this is about as close to a castle as you’re going to get. The home’s exterior features steep turrets, walls of stone, chimneys popping up all over, stained glass windows, and a wonderful flow of design. The 1.7-acre estate is a dream with nearly $500,000 worth of outdoor lighting upgrades, including night-lit gardens and fountains, illuminated ponds, a world of flowering shrubs, roses, walking paths, two barbecue areas, a creekside outdoor dining space, and all domestic utilities including two private wells for landscape. Fascinating outdoor water features include a waterfall and pond with whimsical dolphin sculptures; a natural freshwater pond fed by perennial Wood Creek; and a heated dipping pond with an Italian sandstone fountain overlooking Lake Tahoe. This custom built, 7,500 square foot masterpiece has 5 bedrooms, 5 1/2 baths and guest suites with separate entries (ideal for guest, caretaker or au pair suite). Special features include 4 wood burning fireplaces, wine cellar, elevator, and many custom interiors including spectacular stained glass ceilings. Other highlights include an extended private pier with two motorized boat lifts, boat launch, deep-water buoy, freshwater creek and spectacular views of Lake Tahoe and snow capped Sierra Nevada mountains.
