1439918621TAHOE CITY, CA - Alex West of Chase International closed the sale last month on a fantastic lakefront home in Tahoe City for $8,199,000. The property, known as "Alpenhaus," was thoughtfully crafted with seamless mountain living in mind, with a boathouse framed as if in a painting directly under Mt. Tallac, Lake Tahoe’s most iconic and European peak.

Dollar Point is one of the most prestigious neighborhoods and has just 34 lakefront parcels. Of those only 8 have private piers – and among these elite few, only two have a covered boathouse. Alpenhaus features an updated 29’ x 12’ boathouse with an 8000 pound hoist and shingles matching the main house. The steel piling pier itself is over 145’ long and features thick redwood planks, a sitting area and catwalk with swim ladder. Two buoys are located directly in front of the pier. The 85’ wide natural sand beach transitions via redwood steps to a large, lakeside deck – the perfect spot for a daytime perch or an evening refreshment overlooking Tahoe’s expanse.


Amenities on this property include billiards, a wine room with case storage, walls of windows, impressive exposed beams, a private outdoor lakeview hot tub, as well as membership to Dollar Point amenities. Stylish art can be found throughout the home, highlighted by sublime lighting and gorgeous lake views.
