June 14, 2018
An expansive estate on Lake Tahoe’s East Shore recently hit the market for $35 million.
The estate, located in Glenbrook and known as the Pines, was originally developed as a summer retreat for the Scripps/Howard newspaper family back in the 1930s, according to Chase International.
Originally 26 acres, the property was eventually sold in the ’50s and divided into four different parcels — two of which make up the Pines.
The 13.6-acre double parcel includes a main residence, guesthouse and caretaker's home.
The grounds feature a three-hole golf course with practice green, swimming pool and spa, waterfalls, covered bridge, trout ponds, baseball practice enclosure and granite outcroppings.

The main residence was built in 1998 and is a contemporary, mountain style home with multi-level windows. It features two rustic cherry staircases, master wing, four guest suites and sitting area, large bunk room, gym or office area, spa and wine room.
The grounds resemble a park, with walkways, patios and decks for outdoor living. The 3,000-square-foot guesthouse is a replica of the original historic main house, with four bedrooms and three bathrooms.
