There is something innately magical about lovely mountain retreats that are surrounded by majestic peaks and snowy slopes. The Martis Camp House near Lake Tahoe brings together the inviting warmth of a beautiful, woodsy getaway and stunning contemporary design to engulf you in a world of luxury. Designed by Swaback Partners, the ingenious home moves away from the general architectural style of the high Sierra region and uses wood in an extensive and sculptural fashion to create a truly distinct residence. The expansive wooden façade also complements the snow-clad slopes outside in a picture-perfect manner.
Its proximity to Lake Tahoe, the scenic landscape outside and the comfy interior combine to make your stay here unforgettable. While wood and glass dominate the front elevation, the interior also uses stone in an elegant way to lend both textural and visual balance to the home. An open-plan living area, kitchen and dining space occupy the lower level of the house while the private quarters are housed on the top floor. Several comfy nooks and sitting areas that offer unabated, framed views of the outdoors are cleverly incorporated throughout the house.
Lighting plays a key role in defining the ambiance of the Martis Camp House, as a dazzling combination of pendant and recessed fixtures along with gorgeous cascading chandeliers ensure that there is never a dull moment in this tranquil escape. Spacious, opulent and idyllic, this is indeed a great way to discover (or rediscover) the magic of the Sierra Nevada!
