TONOPALO RESORT COMMUNITY
Location: Tahoe Vista, California
Tonopalo Resort Community in Tahoe Vista, California, on the North Shore of Lake Tahoe and completed in 2004, is a beach-front residence club that rests along 270 feet of white sandy beaches.
This mountain retreat consists of 19 furnished units, a clubhouse, swimming pool and spa. Tonopalo makes the most of a compact site with south-facing buildings that capture expansive views of the Sierra Nevada mountain range and Lake Tahoe. The challenge was to create a contemporary mountain architecture that provided privacy and intimacy. The design was achieved through the careful “layering” of low angles and well placed barriers, which enabled wide open focused views along with privacy.
These three and four bedroom homes (1,700-3,000 s.f.) are a private haven that bring together both simplicity and the ultimate in comfort. All of the homes encompass an extensive living and dining area, spectacular fireplace, double master bedrooms, a gourmet kitchen, and all private residences have lake views and outdoor patios and/or decks. The result is a place of rest and luxury.
