Tahoe Keys homes on display for fundraiser

For almost 30 years, the South Lake Tahoe Branch of the American Association of University Women has been providing home tours of unique and distinctive homes on the south shore of Lake Tahoe. This year’s home tour, titled “The Tahoe Keys Experience,” set for June 10, will continue with that tradition.

The showcase home on the tour is one rarely seen by the public. This extraordinary 7,500-square-foot house on Beach Drive is the largest home on the lake within the city limits of South Lake Tahoe, and without a doubt one of the most unique.

The house consists of curved walls and wrap-around glass providing spectacular views of the lake and mountains. The theme continues with the curved staircase leading to the expansive second story. From the entry through the main floor living areas, there is a sense of openness throughout.

There are two living rooms, back to back on different levels, each with a fireplace and luxurious furniture. A billiard room and extensive electronic equipment provide basic elements for enjoyment.

The huge kitchen and pantry can easily provide for the double dining areas, both of which have access to lake and mountain views. Noticeable throughout the home is an extensive use of glass block.

There are three master suites included in the total of five bedrooms and five baths. Distinctive features of the home are the indoor fishpond and two in-room theaters.

In addition, there are seven outdoor decks and a four-car garage.

This rental house, called “Sean’s on the Shore,” has been generously offered for view in the home tour by local physician, Dr. Sean Degnan. In addition, Dr. Degnan’s beautiful residence will be the site for refreshments, affording one of the best views in the Tahoe Keys.

Three other homes on the tour display the range of enjoyable living throughout the Keys.

Tickets for the home tour are $20 and can be purchased from any AAUW member and at these locations: Neighbors Bookstore, Curves at the “Y”, Coldwell Bankers-McKinney & Associates, South Lake Tahoe Chamber of Commerce, and the Tahoe-Douglas Chamber of Commerce.

Tickets can also be purchased on the day of the tour at each home. Proceeds benefit scholarships for local women from Lake Tahoe Community College and financial assistance for local girls to attend a math/science summer camp.

For more information about the home tour or AAUW, please call (530) 541-1371 or send email to jlbenin@earthlink.net. AAUW promotes equity and education for women and girls and encourages lifelong learning.
