This Clear Creek home is a throwback to the classic Lake Tahoe design, but with enough modern flourishes to keep it from feeling like a nostalgic relic. Instead, the custom beamwork and heavy stone trim give the home a timeless feel that will never be outdated. The heavy stone backsplash in the kitchen surrounds a classic plaster hooded stove. The stone is even carried outdoors to the recessed hot tub. Also on the property, you’ll find a 300-sq.ft. guest home, that may be the smallest we’ve built. But what it lacks in size it makes up for in design, as it matches the main home note for note.
