October 10, 2019
Falcon Point Place
Let’s go on a tour of one of the most modern and luxurious homes to grace the beautiful open lands of the Tahoe National Forest, Falcon Point Place. This stunning mountain top retreat is a must see property. Sitting on nearly 9 acres of private land, this spacious home features over 5,000 square feet of living space. This majestic home was designed by prestigious San Francisco Bay Area architects, WA Design.
The home design for this property is strongly influenced by the compelling mountain vistas it sits upon. The sprawling sierra views make this property one of the most uniquely available homes today. This property features sweeping views of the High Sierra’s, and nearly 360 degree views to Donner Crest, Tinker's Knob, and the Carson Range. The one of a kind scenery surrounding this home will not leave you disappointed.
Starting with the exterior of the home, the materials adorning the outer walls are inspired by mining and stamp mills, which were native to the region in the gold rush era. The layout of this home is inspired not only by the look of old style mill architecture, but also the layout of those buildings. The old gold mining mills used gravity separation to extract gold which resulted in tall, vertical buildings. This home mirrors that same vertical elongation, creating a soaring majestic building that is beautiful to observe on top of the extensive mountain backdrop. The layout of this home was purposefully created to not interrupt the beautiful views, allowing for gorgeous views of the mountain forest from both outside and inside the home.
Inside the home, the tall elongated design allows for spacious vaulted ceilings. The design of the interior was also inspired by old mining mills, featuring beautiful metal bracketing and design work. This bracketing not only continues the design theme of old world industrial, but they also reinforce the building to withstand the heavy winter snow. The tall vaulted canopy also allows for large windows that span the interior walls, from the floor nearly to the ceiling. The interior features reclaimed timber that matches the design aesthetic. The home is supported by recycled 10”x10” Douglas Fir beams, which tie directly into the natural wood roofing above.
From the entryway to the backend of the home, the layout encourages you to appreciate the mountain forest landscape. The details of this home are immaculate, featuring natural hardwood flooring and a cozy fireplace which was carved from large white Sierra granite blocks. These elements make this mountain retreat feel like a home which was created from its natural surroundings. The raw character of the mountain forest is prevalent in every detail among the homes features.
The bedrooms in this home are spacious and welcoming, continuing the overall atmosphere of natural landscape elements. Shifting focus to the North, the floor plan ascends vertically leading to the study and master bedroom. The home features 4 bedrooms, with the master bedroom emphasizing the nature of the Sierra’s showcasing its own vaulted ceilings, floor to ceiling windows, and a fireplace made of the same sierra white granite which is consistent throughout the home. Following the design of the rest of the home, all 3.5 bathrooms feature natural elements from the mountain landscape. Sierra white granite stone is carved and polished to accentuate the highly functional lavatories and create a natural looking environment.
While the bedrooms and bathrooms feature magnificent design, a real star of this home is the kitchen. Both spacious and cozy, this kitchen area is a place where people will naturally want to congregate. Presenting natural sierra white granite countertops and elegant metal fabricating, the kitchen serves as both a cooking space and gathering place. The immaculate look of this kitchen is sure to impress anyone who steps inside its beautiful layout.
The design and attention to detail on this property puts it in a category of homes that is reserved for the most breathtaking residential properties. The components of this home are uniquely native to the High Sierra region, making it a brilliant dwelling which lends to the splendor of the natural forest region. This home is distinctive and in a class by itself, making the opportunity to own this property a rare and unprecedented moment.
