About 15651 Conifer Drive

Step into a journey of majestic quality craftsmanship in this stunning 3 bedrooms, 3.5 bath home built around a native granite Boulder in Truckee, CA..Built in 2006, this home offers a unique retreat just minutes to Donner Lake, custom built to integrate the outdoors inside, with a stunning play on light, and the native bedrock of the area.The home offers a whimsical, playful and incredibly artistic interpretation of the great outdoors within your home, with handmade wood steps, the tranquil sound of a babbling brook playing around the boulder, and numerous windows and lighting throughout to cast a constant play of shadows and light inside. With the ever changing seasons outside, no one moment in this home is the same.

Situated with flat level access, the two-car garage at street level is heated with sink and built in shelving. A custom hydronic system heats the home. An interior staircase goes up to the first level of the home, while external covered stairs offer guests a welcoming entrance, with moss-covered boulders, copper siding and hand-hewn wood siding. Enter the front door to find the majesty that is the home, the incredible boulder projects up in front of you, reaching up to the second story and ceiling above, a water feature at the foot of the boulder. The entryway is two stories high, capturing the strength and grandeur of the Sierra Nevada mountains within. To the right are two en-suite bedrooms with with balcony, and a laundry room that integrates the side of the boulder and beautiful woodwork. Tranquility found. Up stairs that lead with a playful path around the side of the boulder one arrives at the second story, with bench seating, and additional boulders placed poetically to imbue a sense of the outdoors, within. A half bath is situated against the side of the staircase; a play on the great outdoorsman’s outhouse with a copper sink, walnut counters, and windows framing plants and beautiful light from the outside. The second floor, made of heartwood pine, features a cozy living room with wood-burning stove, elevated ceilings with a cupola above, kitchen, dining, and master bedroom with ensuite bath, and walk in closet, a balcony, and loft. French doors open to the back yard, tucked into the mountain side with towering aspens and pines, an entertainer’s dream with its privacy and intimacy. No detail was left untouched in this exquisite home made to elevate and intrigue the senses. Welcome home to your escape at Donner Lake, and enjoy all that Truckee-Tahoe has to offer.
