The Ritz-Carlton Residences, Lake Tahoe were built within a natural wonderland, operated by renowned Vail Resorts, enhanced by unprecedented ownership privileges. Owners of the penthouses will enjoy pre-arrival concierge service, valet parking, a Residence Concierge, Ski Valet services, a private entry corridor and elevator that deliver owners to their penthouses.

A three-bedroom and a four-bedroom residence by the designer will be unveiled on February 17; a four-bedroom split-level penthouse will debut in mid-March 2013. Jeffers was engaged by Kennedy Wilson to conceptualize the design, look and feel for the model homes, which bring cosmopolitan style to the mountains, marrying the urbane and the organic in a look he likes to call, "California Mountain."
The Ritz-Carlton Residences, Lake Tahoe are available for immediate occupancy. The sales launch comes less than two months after Kennedy Wilson and its partners acquired The Ritz-Carlton, Lake Tahoe and The Ritz-Carlton Residences, Lake Tahoe from the property's lenders, and follows an unprecedented strong season for The Ritz-Carlton, Lake Tahoe under the auspices of new ownership.
