About

Step across the threshold and enter a serene world away from the bustle of urban life. The quiet and birdsong will astound you as you enjoy this charming home. A unique mid-century-Tahoe-japanesque blend provides serenity, flexibility, and the ultimate indoor-outdoor setting. Whether you are looking for a contemplative place to live and work or a home for entertaining, 1028 Overlook has it all.

On your first visit, you’ll enter the home via the front steps and walkway, which lift you up and away from the street, providing you ultimate privacy from passers-by, and the day to day sounds of the neighborhood. When you live in this lovely charmer, you’ll access it level-in from the private driveway and attached garage or garden gate in the back.  

The soaring vaulted wood ceilings of the living room enhance the sense of airiness as you look out every window to a beautiful natural scene:  A treetop canyon keyhole view in front or the well-loved Japanese garden surrounding a secluded patio in the back.   Indoor outdoor entertaining is a breeze as the back patio is accessible from 3 rooms, LR, DR and kitchen. Hardwood floors through-out the living areas anchors the natural feeling.

The ample master bedroom with en-suite bath and large closet features clerestory style windows that look out to the eastern Tahoe-like hillside canyon views towards Tilden.  Two additional bedrooms and a second bath on the first floor complete the convenience of a single level life.

Kitchen features include brand new stainless steel appliances, with a bottom freezer and double-door fridge along with a stove with convection oven. Newer composite counter tops offer a contemporary feeling. The garage is accessed directly off the kitchen for ease of entry and additional pantry storage.   

Follow the staircase off the kitchen to a delightfully large and lovely loft room with high vaulted ceilings and panoramic views in every direction. An architect designed addition, this room is the surprise of the home and affords flexibility for so many uses. Whether you see this space as a family getaway room, an office or studio, or a future master suite, you will want to spend a lot of time here. The style is unique with soaring ceilings, skylights, hardwood floors, and a stone half wall designed to help warm the room in winter. But the natural outdoor setting is the real reason you’ll linger here with expansive bay views to the west and canyon view to the east.  

The low maintenance landscaping has been lovingly maintained for years by the same company. Several mature Japanese maples frame the rear patio, backed by palms, oaks, and evergreens. The front is lush with mature evergreen & rhododendron tress, interspersed with azaleas and ferns.

Location
