Carson City, Nevada buyers enjoy all the benefits of the Tahoe, California lifestyle without the California taxes.
Especially since the pandemic, the Tahoe market has been booming thanks to Lake Tahoe’s unique location on the borders of California and Nevada. Many very high net worth individuals take advantage of this location by living in Nevada – in areas like Carson City or even Reno – to take advantage of tax benefits like no income, Social Security, inheritance taxes and low property taxes. Clear Creek Tahoe, a mountain and golf community, is just one example. While many homes are under construction, this $12.95 million four-bedroom home at 273 Swifts Station Drive is by far the most luxurious offering in the community. It is the only move-in ready home in the community.
This mountain-inspired home is not only the largest and most expensive home in Clear Creek, it is currently the most expensive home for sale in all of Carson City. The home sits on a 1.8 acre lot and spans 6,724 square feet with four bedrooms, four bathrooms, a three car garage and 270 degree views of Nevada’s sprawling Carson Valley and as far as Mammoth, California. It’s not your typical mountain lodge; Instead, it offers a sculptural aesthetic. Architect Keith Kelly of Kelly & Stone Architects collaborated with Mark Neave of NSM Construction to create a home inspired by the rise and fall of mountains through sweeping, curvilinear metal roof shapes. Materials include cedar sliding doors, basalt stone masonry, limestone floors, and glass walls.
“The meticulously detailed roof facade, which combines curved shapes with flat roof segments, is highly visible as vehicles approach the driveway from the road leading up the development,” said Georgia Chase, Clear Creek Tahoe Sales Manager. “Exterior building materials include clear cedar, an aluminum composite panel cladding system, and bonded steel with a natural zinc patina finish.”
There are many features that set this home apart, such as a floating bridge near the main entrance suspended over a custom water feature flowing through a native granite boulder. There is also an HD golf simulator, bar, media room, hot tub and gas fire pit. There are also several outdoor areas on each level.
“To take advantage of the mild climate, the home features outdoor living areas, including a walk-through bar into the kitchen and a wall of windows in front of the great room,” she says. “The house is magnificent in every way with soaring glass walls and high ceilings. However, upon entering the home, you immediately feel warm and welcome. The color palette of the house reflects the natural surroundings. The architect and builder did a wonderful job of blending the home into the environment in a way that made it feel as natural as possible, and the interior of the home was carefully designed by Lindsay Carlile Designs of Lubbock, Texas.”
Clear Creek Tahoe is less than an hour from Lake Tahoe’s best ski areas and nearby Lake Tahoe for summer activities. The development also features a Lake Tahoe shoreline cabin called Twin Pines Lake and Ski House where guests can use a private boat and enjoy rustic cabin living. There is also a Coore & Crenshaw designed golf course on site, a restaurant and other on site activity offerings.
