Clear Creek Tahoe is a ‘natural wonder’ — found on the eastern slope of the soaring Carson Range in Nevada, it is surrounded by around six million acres of forest. This outstanding home is situated behind the community’s private gates and was built by one of Lake Tahoe’s premier builders, Mark Neave of NSM Construction. Spanning 6,724 sq ft with four bedrooms and four bathrooms, the interiors naturally pay homage to the surroundings: Think cedar siding and basalt masonry, with walls of glass to let those astonishing views take center stage. Speaking of the views, you can expect far-reaching panoramas of the Carson Valley and nearby mountain ranges. The house also has a three-car garage, hot tub, bar and two powder rooms. While the world-class golf course, designed by Bill Coore and Ben Crenshaw, is almost at your doorstep, the property has a golf simulator so you can practice in the comfort of your own home.
