High Sierra architectural masterpiece.



Designed by the Architect of Record for the Bay Bridge retrofit, this Donald McDonald-designed mountain house has pristine walls of clear heart redwood with fine joinery culminating in a cathedral-like ambiance in the great room. The redwood constructing this house is irreplaceable. The siting of this house is perfect nestled in a 4-home cul de sac. The view from the living room and off the exceedingly pleasant deck is all of nature. You gaze across deeded forever open space while a pleasant creek trickles below. You can’t see another structure in this view. All this yet the house is remarkably close to the Bear Valley Village center making winter access easier. The house is heated with both a propane floor register heater as well as a forced-air system. A natural wood-burning fireplace provides the quintessential ski house vibe in the winter. The master suite is on the upstairs main floor and has a bathroom ensuite.
