Sierra Sotheby's International RealtyTAHOE CITY, CA – Along the shore of Tahoe City sits a “Cape Cod Contemporary” at 2200 North Lake Boulevard. The new owners found their dream home with the help of Sierra Sotheby’s International Realty broker, David Gemme.

Beginning his career as a journeyman carpenter on the build for this house under the renowned builder James Galletto of Galletto Construction over 20 years ago, Gemme was uniquely equipped to find the perfect buyer.

“Gemme was our first call to represent the sellers,” said Galletto. “His involvement in the original build and his experience with selling luxury lakefront estates in the Lake Tahoe region created a perfect fit.”

2200 North Lake BoulevardThe home, which was originally listed for $8 million, sold for $7.6 million. Situated half a mile north of Tahoe City, this 4,812-square-foot house has five bedrooms and four-and-a-half bathrooms. Designed with timeless elegance and entertaining in mind, this three-story home is centered around a towering stone fireplace that integrates an intimate and cozy seating area in the great room. The property also features a chef’s kitchen with a large expansive deck overlooking Lake Tahoe and the surrounding snow-capped mountains.

Envisioned for multiple families and large groups of friends, the home is equipped with a sprawling flat lawn for summer play, a lake view office study, a wine cellar and a bonus media/pool room with direct access to the lakeside patio. The backyard is also connected to a large, 118-foot private sandy shoreline with two buoys.

Designed by award-winning San Francisco architect David Fagerstrom, the exterior pulls elements from Cape Cod with a shingled exterior and a wood-framed flat-front facade. Gemme was a natural fit to help find a new owner for the property - he assisted Galletto Construction with the build in 2001.

“Selling 2200 North Lake Boulevard is truly a coming home story for me,” said Gemme. “I feel so honored to have been chosen to sell a home I helped to build 20 years ago with one of Tahoe’s finest builders, James Galletto and I welcome the opportunity to be a part of their story.”

David Gemme is a broker associate with Sierra Sotheby’s International Realty and the owner of Gemme Group, Inc., which represents the finest ski resort, lakefront, golf and commercial properties throughout the Lake Tahoe, Truckee and Reno areas.
