This award-winning retro classic is a true architect’s build boasting several solar features sure to please anyone interested in lowering a carbon footprint and utility bill. Situated on sun-drenched Glenshire greenbelt, the home is a Truckee enthusiast’s dream, offering tons of natural light, storage to keep all mountain toys secure, several fenced-in outdoor living areas for four-legged friends and al fresco dining, a greenhouse, and a manmade trail leading directly from the property to the Truckee River and Legacy Trail. There is also a mother-in-law unit located on the lower level of the home. Of all the built-in solar features this home has to offer, the most impressive is the Thromb Wall which stores heat during the day and has retractable panels which lower over it to retain heat for the home. Other solar features include the greenhouse, long interior chimney line extending from a wood burning stove (passive solar), water heater, and hydronic flooring in the MIL unit. Design aspects pay homage to Truckee’s heyday by incorporating unknotted redwood paneling, reclaimed from the old Tahoe City water tower and used for portions of the interior wall. Handmade stained glass windows can be found around the home as well as a spiral artisan staircase that leads from the upstairs bedroom to a cozy loft area boasting long range mountain views of Tinker's Knob. 5 minute walk to Glenshire Elementary School. Other neighborhood amenities include the General Store, Pizza Company and the seasonal pool and tennis club.
