Villa Alexandra is an exquisite estate, seemingly carved out of the hillside on which it is perched, overlooking the pristine waters of Lake Tahoe's Agate Bay. This property sits at a 200-foot vantage point. The feat of engineering is constructed on the hillside of a scree field, with the help of supporting towers in facilitating a stunning 270-degree Lakeview. The exteriors meld perfectly into its dramatic setting, a harmonious expression of local materials, from glacier stone, slate, steel, glass, and redwood. Situated a mere 10 minutes away from the Northstar resort and 20 minutes from the site of the 1960 Olympic games, the estate is within arms' reach of Alpine sports history.
A North shore stunner, the great room opens up to pristine Lakeview vistas. Industrial steel and Sapele wood, frame glass walls dousing the space in abundant light. An area that brings in the magnificence of the outdoors, the ambiance is light, airy yet grounded in a sophisticated chalet ambiance. Wood-paneled vaulted ceilings complement old brick accents walls hinting at frontier town rusticism and the distinctive scree texture of the hillside. These refined interiors are the handiwork of renowned designer Joel Sherman, winner of the prestigious 2015 Oustanding Home of the Year award. Generous use of glass gives the home an ethereal radiance submitting to the natural glory of the bay, Lake, and mountains. Separate residences assure guest discretion and privacy, keeping lodging arrangements between groups flexible. Solar panels keep Villa Alexandra's energy usage in tandem with nature, just as much as its design.
The 1.2-acre outdoor space is a sight to behold, with a beautiful dining and adjacent cocktail deck, grounded with outdoor heat lamps. Exemplary outdoor infrastructure defines this prestigious all-season rental. Enjoy spell-binding sunsets from the southwest-facing patio. The property stretches to the Lake, claiming 90 ft. of shore and a deepwater pier. A gem of Vista Tahoe and a perfect marriage of savage beauty, luxury, and style, Villa Alexandra stands as one of the North Shore's most coveted properties.
