Cover Story: Crystal Pointe

A home is a true reflection of a person’s lifestyle. Crystal Pointe, nestled among the Lake Tahoe landscape in Nevada, is no exception.

“It’s built in harmony with this environment and is in the contour of the land,” says Susan Lowe, vice president and corporate broker with Chase International Luxury Real Estate. With over 16,000 square feet, Crystal Pointe offers stunning views of the lake throughout, with the main foyer featuring large floor-to-ceiling windows and absolute privacy all-around.

In essence, the home is meant to incorporate the beauty and elements that Lake Tahoe encompasses. From the hand-carved cedar beams to the outside fire pit and waterfall, the home puts Lake Tahoe’s outdoors on display while linking people to the area’s nature and spiritual lands.

“The connection to Mother Earth through the water, through the sun and the essence of our souls is found in this property,” says Shari Chase, president, CEO and luxury specialist of Chase International Luxury Real Estate. “The property takes into consideration all the elements of the surrounding land and the stunning views of Lake Tahoe.”

The two funiculars on the property provide a 360-degree view of the sugar pine trees, bald eagles and cascading land that envelope the property. A continuation of the main residence, the beach house, sits further down the mountain, allowing for direct access to the lake below. The crisp air breathes into the beach house through the deck that connects to the main level, bringing the outside in. The dining area features a 2,400-year-old alligator juniper tree table, while fossils scattered in the sandstone flooring add finishing touches to this spectacular addition.

Crystal Pointe embodies the lushness and vibrancy of Lake Tahoe and pays homage to the unrefined environment. Put simply by Chase, this home is for “people looking to enhance the quality of their life.” Crystal Pointe is listed at $75 million.

Totaling $102 million in sales, the first new residential community on Lake Tahoe in 30 years nears Phase 1 sell out pre-construction — setting a record-breaking sales pace for Lake Tahoe real estate projects.

During the first 15 months of pre-construction sales, 41 of 46 Phase 1 residences at Tahoe Beach Club, a new private residential community on the southeastern shore of Lake Tahoe, were sold. The record-breaking sale was announced by MI Worldwide Properties, a leading luxury real estate marketing and sales firm.

A scarcity of new construction along the Lake has fueled high demand for the initial release of residences as the residential community presents a singular opportunity to own a home with direct private access to one of America’s most iconic landmarks.

“Reaching a near sell out of Phase 1 pre-construction is a remarkable milestone. The fact that a property like this may not come again for many years is certainly a driver for buyers who want to secure their family’s legacy on the Lake,” said Mike Collins, founding partner and chief executive officer at IMI. “Tahoe Beach Club offers not only a matchless location and modern lifestyle amenities, but also the benefits of a friendlier Nevada tax climate. Given this rare trifecta we’ve been able to achieve record sales prices while also keeping sales at a high velocity never before seen in the Lake Tahoe market.”

Set to open this fall, Tahoe Beach Club will bring a wholly unique living experience to the Lake. The 143 two- to five-bedroom condominium residences will be anchored by the iconic Beach Club, a world-class community hub designed by renowned architect John Sather of Swaback Partners. Known for high-profile, family-centered projects such as the Family Barn at Martis Camp (Truckee, California) and The SHED at Promontory Club (Park City, Utah), Sather’s Beach Club will differentiate Tahoe Beach Club by offering owner’s the best of today’s lifestyle amenities right out their front door, including fine and casual dining; a yoga and Pilates pavilion; a premier fitness facility; business center; concierge services; and a full-service spa.

Outdoor recreation awaits on the private white sand beach complete with cabanas and fire pits, a 160-foot floating pier, boat valet service and an infinity-edge pool overlooking Lake Tahoe. Hiking, biking and exploration are steps away within the surrounding 300+ acres of national forest and meadows to the north, or owners can hit the links at neighboring Edgewood Tahoe Resort and Golf Course. Tahoe Beach Club is also just minutes from Heavenly Ski Resort and all the excitement, entertainment and dining found in South Lake Tahoe, a destination experiencing a significant transformation as an influx of innovative restaurants, craft breweries, upscale hotels and entertainment venues attract a new generation of visitors to play and stay.

The residences at Tahoe Beach Club meld modern mountain livability with the timelessness of Tahoe. Materials have been creatively layered — wood abuts stone and metal create a contemporary textural vibrancy. Throughout the mountain modern residences, custom lighting, wide expanses of windows, large decks, fine appliances and appointments all speak to an elevated, active and relaxing lifestyle while maintaining an understated elegance. With special attention paid to comforts and conveniences such as sound attenuation and underground parking with elevator access directly into residences, Tahoe Beach Club brings a heightened living experience appealing to today’s modern families.

The Initial Release of Phase 2 residences will take place this spring, and will be treated on a first come first serve reservation process, which are being secured at this time. Residences start at $1.3 million.
