Villa Dolce

Lahontan, Truckee, California

This home is built on top of a bluff overlooking beautifully framed views of the Pacific Crest, Lookout Mountain and the Martis Valley.  The home consists of a main residence, a separate three car garage and work shop, and a detached wine cellar/tasting room.  The main residence includes 5 bedrooms, a great room, kitchen, family room, office, work room, sauna and covered spa.  In total the project exceeds 9,000 s.f. of living space.  Solid stone walls anchor the elements to the site and each other.  These walls act to focus views, control low angle sun and in conjunction with broad roof overhangs, blur the line between indoor and out.
