For savvy homebuyers who want to buy property in Lake Tahoe, the stunning natural beauty is only one ingredient in the home buying process. The other? Finding a modern luxurious home that balances the natural elements of Lake Tahoe with the elegant, sophisticated, clean look of a modern home.
One of the most critical elements of a modern luxury home in Lake Tahoe is the presence of windows in the home. To help bring the outdoors in and create that peaceful woodland charm, home owners want to be able to see the rolling mountains or refreshing lake as they lounge around their home. Modern luxury properties in Lake Tahoe accomplish this feat by creating a wall of windows in the great room that almost give the illusion of an open window. Windows are also often placed throughout the master bedroom and even the bathroom to provide beautiful views no matter where the homeowner is in the home. A variety of windows also bring in the natural light.
Another exquisite element of modern luxury homes in Lake Tahoe is the gorgeous natural wood accents used in the home. The wood ranges in style form oak, maple, cedar, and mahogany to cherry, walnut, rosewood, teak, pine, and ash. Many homes have wood ceilings, wood beams, or wood trim along with wood details throughout the home such as on cabinetry in the kitchen, bathrooms, and great room. The wooden accents and wooden details convey a sense of luxury while also tying the modern look to the natural look outdoors.
To keep the home modern, architectural lines are typically kept clean and simple to create a sleeker, more sophisticated look. High ceilings contribute to this look by adding a refreshing sense of calm and freedom with the additional space. To keep with a more modern look, all the appliances are typically stainless steel and the colors used in the home are light to bring a brighter look to the home that helps add an airy quality that the wooden accents might not have with a darker color.
The homes also love to add fireplaces to the great room and master bedroom as well as game rooms to give the home a secluded, private, and cozy feeling. On a cold winter day, these fireplaces can also add a great deal of warmth to the home. Other home amenities frequently include luxurious patios that can be multi-level or appear at both the front and the back of the home. Patios often are made out of a natural wood and are quite wide so that homeowners can bring family and friends out for parties without feeling cramped. The outdoors is most often a woodland atmosphere with potential views of Lake Tahoe and the mountains. Some homes come with gardens and other outdoor fixtures such as stone statues that add a bit of a regal flair to the traditional Lake Tahoe luxury home.
