This immaculately designed and engineered contemporary chateau features single level living with the primary suite, library/office, kitchen and entertaining rooms on the main level with three guest suites and a den and bonus room that can be used as a fourth bedroom upstairs. Guests are welcomed into this contemporary chateau through double arched doors. A wall of windows frame the stunning views of Lake Tahoe and three sets of french doors open onto an expansive stone entertaining patio. The recently upgraded living room exudes a modern simplicity which allows the architectural details, such as the 2-story mantlepiece and soaring ceilings, to shine. The immaculate chefs kitchen opens to a lakeview lounge warmed by a large gas fireplace. The private primary suite features spectacular lake views, spa-like bath retreat, and two custom built-in closets. The original guest house resonates with a 1960s era swagger from the days when Frank Sinatra owned the CalNeva and Tahoe was swinging with a Rat Pack vibe. With 3 bedrooms and 2 baths, the home features an open entertaining area with floor to ceiling windows overlooking the property with kitchen, large island bar and living room with a rock fireplace with gas insert. This guest feature is ready to enjoy as is but also includes plans by award-winning architect Clare Walton to refresh the vintage vibe with a modern feel and top-of-the-line amenities. Follow a manicured crushed granite path lakewards and you will find the extremely rare and irreplicable lakeside pool. Current building restrictions no longer allow these waterside pools to be built. Plans for the pool renovation are currently underway and a brand new pool will be ready for plunging in August 2022. Beyond the pool is a lakeview pool house with storage for kayaks and SUPs, along with an expansive pier with boat lift that offers an out-of-water storage solution for your boat. Offshore are 2 private, deep-water buoys. Enter this gated compound and you are instantly transported. Towering old growth cedar trees watch over the property while immaculate landscaping leads you down the winding drive past the guest house to the main house. Both an attached 2-car garage and detached 3-car garage with shop, bath, additional storage and space for your Sprinter van. A circular drive takes guests straight to the main entrance of the home. Part of a former equestrian property, the meadows and lawns of the propertys 2.8 acres lend themselves to roaming and exploration. Keep your eyes wide open and you might find a tiny flower garden hidden in a burned out cedar trunk. The privacy and space of this property are rare on the shoreline of Lake Tahoe, yet just outside your gated property you will find the world-renown Tahoe House Bakery, miles of paved bike paths and access to a trail system that twines throughout the National Forest and connects to the Tahoe Rim Trail. The current owner enjoys weekly bike rides to the Farmers Market on Commons Beach and trekking out the extensive trail systems to famous landmarks such as Stanford Rock. While masterful craftsmanship is to be expected in most lakefront estates, what sets Belle Haven apart is the sense of privacy offered by the large parcel while still being minutes from town, trails and ski resorts. Belle Haven offers an elegant basecamp for all of your Sierra adventures and space enough for your family, friends, and guests to bathe in the old-growth wonder of the West Shore of Lake Tahoe.
