Timber abounds within the luxurious, four-bedroom, five-bathroom oasis. Heart pine flooring lines the living room, dining area, breakfast nook and chef’s kitchen, while wood-framed windows deliver views of the water from several rooms of 6400 West Lake Blvd., Unit 22. Located within the coveted Chambers Landing community, the welcoming abode includes multiple decks and its eastern orientation provides views of the sunrise every morning. Ample cabinetry outfits a chef’s kitchen revolving around an island with a built-in microwave. A simple chandelier lingers over the stone-topped island, illuminating a cooking space equipped with high-end appliances. Chambers Landing is a gated, 14-acre property alongside Lake Tahoe that’s home to 43 condominium residences. The community dates back to the middle of the 19th Century, when “Old John” Washington McKinney explored the area and made it into his hunting and fishing resort. Residence 22 rests along the lakefront and offers covered parking. The home opens to a generously sized living room overlooking Lake Tahoe. A stone fireplace stretches from the floor to the vaulted, beamed ceiling, while timber finishes accent the hardwood floor. A sliding glass door in the dining area opens to a lakeside deck that’s ideal for outdoor entertaining, while another deck with a grill waits off the breakfast nook. A family room/den with a wet bar resides on the lower level, along with a full bathroom. Meanwhile, the owner’s suite features dual vanities, a granite shower and marble flooring.
