Imagine pouring yourself a warm morning beverage and opening your sliding door onto an expansive wrap-around deck. Step outside and take a nice, long inhale of that crisp, cool mountain air.
Peaceful mornings in a quiet friendly neighborhood can be hard to come by these days. This four-bedroom, two-bath Glenshire home is a great opportunity if you are seeking to bask in the tranquility of the mountains.
When you arrive at this beautiful, single-story family home, the first thing you will notice is the ample outdoor lounge space on the south-facing wrap-around deck.
South facing means plenty of sunshine on those cold mountain mornings. It also means that your snow load will melt faster after our magnificent winter storms. The south-facing driveway is also one of the first on the block to melt!In the summer months, you will enjoy ample outdoor space for hosting barbeques or birthday parties. The front landscaping provides a nice privacy screen between you and your neighbors, who are super friendly anyway!
The single-story design of this home means less carrying groceries up multiple flights of steps, which can be a rarity in Tahoe. Inside, you will enjoy plenty of room to spread out in three spacious bedrooms, in addition to the large master bedroom with its own master bath.
Attached to the house, a two-car garage offers plenty of room for larger, mountain-ready vehicles and all of the outdoor recreation gear that comes with a mountain lifestyle.
Speaking of living in the mountains, you will also love the gas woodstove in the living room for warming up after a chilly day on the slopes or snowshoeing in the neighborhood. The kitchen, dining room, and living room are also quite spacious and boast large windows that let in plenty of natural light.
The front yard is beautifully landscaped and the centerpiece is the grand blue spruce in front of the kitchen. It has grown up to provide plenty of shade during the summer and an absolutely gorgeous scene in the snowy months.
