Straw Residence

Northstar, CA
3800 sf

With the best views for this knoll-top location from the home's upper level, it was decided that a floor plan with the main living, dining and kitchen areas on the upper level would be preferable. Soaring heights in the foyer and a graceful stairway immediately draw the visitor upstairs. A large great room features vaulted ceilings and tall windows over glass doors leading to a deck from which to also enjoy distant views. The adjacent open dining room and kitchen allow daylight through plentiful windows to help take the chill off the early Tahoe mornings. Five bedrooms and a large recreation room rounds out this unconventional but efficient home within the Old Tahoe vernacular style.
