Mark Twain once said of Lake Tahoe that is was “the fairest picture the whole earth affords….the water is clearer than the air, and the air is the air that angels breathe.”

Spend a little time at 720 West Lake Boulevard and it’s easy to see what he meant.

Spanning 150 feet of shoreline and 2.8 pristine acres along the Tahoe lakefront, this remarkable gated French Country estate offers a private refuge for year-round enjoyment or family getaways.

The meticulously crafted and beautifully styled 5,248-square-foot custom home offers ample space for everyday enjoyment and entertaining friends and family. Gracious luxury abounds from every room, such as in the grand living room with warming fireplace and 20-foot ceilings and the adjacent dining room, where dinner parties await. Framing both rooms is a wall of picture windows overlooking the spectacular grounds and lake beyond.

The gourmet kitchen features ample custom cabinetry, a center island, and professional stainless steel appliances, while the sumptuous master suite presents resort-quality luxury.

Designed for gracious living indoors and out, this distinctive property features spectacular grounds that are worthy of the unmatched location. Retreat to the expansive patio and the sparkling blue lake and canopy of trees create postcard vistas. Steps from the shore, a private dining or lounging area is the ideal spot to connect with nature, or with a loved one. A private steel piling pier and a private beach invite an array of water sports and waterfront relaxation, adding one more desirable element to a property that ideally captures the inspiration of Lake Tahoe.
