Uppaway Estates is a small gated private community that was once part of the larger adjacent historic community of Glenbrook, Nevada. Uppaway features low traffic, low HOA fees, no short term rentals, and no commercial businesses with 29 homes situated on 44 acres. A park on Lake Tahoe allows every owner in Uppaway to enjoy lakefront amenities without packing the car and driving. Some residents walk, and others drive a golf cart to enjoy lakefront picnics, sunsets and access to the community pier.
This four-bedroom home was designed for comfortable living and entertaining in a resort setting. The unique and flexible floor plan is highlighted by three suites. The primary suite is large and sunny with a grand master bath. The second suite has a fireplace, bath and a separate entry overlooking a beautiful yard and forest beyond. The third suite is comprised of two bedrooms, each with a full bath, separate entries and a shared media room.
Large walls of windows on each side of the house capture the light as the sun moves across the sky. Marble, granite, glass, artistic stone, exposed beams, soaring ceilings and beautiful fireplaces create a special ambiance with glorious forest and mountain views. The fully appointed kitchen has both gas and electric cook tops, stacked double ovens, a warming oven, and built-in microwave.
The in-floor radiant heat, heated driveway, and domestic hot water are all powered by a state-of-the-art, small high efficiency boiler and the front porch is heated for winter safety.
