About the property

7 bedroom, 7.5 bath Luxury Home with panoramic lake views close to ski resort.

Originally built in 1992 for Charlie "CN" Ray, founder of Sea Ray Boats, Tahoe Blue Estate is an 8,640 square foot spectacular home built on a bluff at the top of Kingsbury Grade. Tahoe Blue Estate offers you and your guests a secluded getaway with phenomenol 360 views of beautiful Lake Tahoe from nearly every room that will take your breath away! Many rooms also have spectacular views of the Heavenly Ski resort along with hundreds of acres of forest. Sitting on over 1.7 acres, the gated estate offers a private mountain getaway for the ultimate in relaxation, yet is less than a 10 minute drive to the casinos and downtown South Lake.

The home includes 7 bedrooms (one of which is semi-private), 7.5 baths and plenty of room for entertaining. Enjoy the sunset over the lake in the beautiful indoor spa or rack a game of pool and watch a movie in the recreational room! The kitchen is equipped with top-of-the-line professional appliances (including two dishwashers, an espresso machine, and a Viking range), sure to impress any chef. Once you have prepared you meal, enjoy it with your guests on our custom built dining room table that sits 20. Have a drink and enjoy the views at either of the two bars or sit and relax with company in front of the fireplace. The main master includes a soaking tub, fireplace and seating area, and three of the seven bedrooms are mini masters with their own private bathrooms. Two of the bedrooms and the semi-private room are located in a separate, fully equipped apartment (including a full kitchen) that can be accessed through the house or through a separate entrance, making the home perfect for multiple families! There is also a 3 car garage and enough parking for 10 cars on the large heated private driveway. Numerous other luxury amenities and high end details throughout the home will allow you to experience the best of Tahoe and a getaway unlike any other!

When you are ready for a day of skiing or snowboarding, the estate is 0.5 miles from the Boulder lift/lodge and 1.5 miles from the Stagecoach lift/lodge, both of which are a part of the Heavenly Mountain. For those coming during the warmer months, there are plenty of great hiking and biking trails in the area, and the beaches are a 10 - 15 min drive down the mountain.

No matter what time of year, Tahoe Blue Estate is sure to provide you with the vacation of your dreams!

About Natasha & Wendy

We moved up to South Lake Tahoe/Stateline because we loved the beauty and nature of the area. We love to ski/snowboard in the winter and hike/mountain bike in the summer. When we purchased this property, we enlisted the help of our daughter, Natasha to provide the best service we can for your Tahoe vacation!

Why Natasha & Wendy chose Tahoe Village

We toured the house last year and thought it was the most spectacular home we'd ever seen in Tahoe. Astounding lake and/or mountain views from nearly every single room are found in this beautiful 8,640 sq ft gated estate. Extraordinary wood and stone work along with beautiful furnishings make this home truly luxurious.

Originally built for $8 million in 1992 for Charlie Ray, owner of Sea Ray Boats, the foundation was attached to the large boulders and a helicopter was used to set the beams. The house has been wonderfully maintained since then and has been remodeled twice. We knew it had the privacy, the views and the luxurious accommodations to meet the high expectations of an executive retreat or world class family vacation.

We can't wait for you to experience the incredible sunsets and classic Tahoe motif that made us fall in love with this little piece of paradise.

What makes this house unique

The private gated estate sits on 1.7 acres of land on top of an outcrop overlooking Lake Tahoe - offering one of the most secluded properties in Tahoe, yet still easily accessible on well-plowed roads close to the Kingsbury Grade. The estate enjoys unimpeded breath-taking (literally) views of the lake, Heavenly Ski Resort and surrounding scenery. Nearly everyone first visiting the home pulls out their phones to take pictures of the lake.

With a heated driveway and decks, a 3-car garage and abundant driveway parking and a location only 1/2 a mile from the lifts, Tahoe Blue Estate is perfect for rest and relaxation whether for an executive retreat or luxurious family vacation!

Incredible Estate!

  • 5 of 5

This house is incredible. We had a group of 16 stay for five nights for a ski weekend at Heavenly and the stay could not have been better. There was enough space for everyone to sleep comfortably and the kitchen / common area as well as the game / billiards room downstairs were all big enough for people to hang out easily.

The best part of this house is easily the views. Almost every room has an unbelievable view of the lake that did not get old. The posted pictures are nice but do not do it justice.

The amenities are fantastic, even the things you might find unnecessary. The heated driveway was key when we took on 15 inches our first night there (also the road was pretty well plowed by the time we wanted to head out). The dumb waiter from the garage to the house made loading / unloading luggage / garbage very easy. The original builders put a lot of thought into this place.

The house is a five minute drive from the Boulder lodge which unfortunately was closed due to lack of snow so far that season but the Stagecoach lodge is only a few minutes further.

We had one small problem with the hot tub but Wendy / Natasha / Steve got back to us immediately with an easy fix. They were extremely accommodating and could not have been more helpful (thanks guys!).

Really can't say enough good things about this place. Highly recommended!!

I cannot tell you how beautiful this house is! the views alone are enough to make you stop and stare for hours! We had a group of 22 people from the commercial real estate industry all staying here comfortably over Presidents Day weekend. the house is about 10 minutes from the main Heavenly Gondola and the entire downtown area. Very easy to get to the house and down the mountain. I think it was about 3 turns total. if you don't feel like traveling to town there is a Chart House about 5 minutes down the mountain which has great food and scenery. although its a chain it still does the trick after a long day on the slopes! This is the only house that I have ever stayed in that gave a welcome basket, and soaps & shampoos in every bathroom for you like you were staying at a hotel. I would not hesitate to book this house again.

The Best Ever - Highly Recommended – Stunningly Beautiful

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay at the Tahoe Blue Estate for the 2017-2018 New Year’s Weekend.

It’s a large, beautiful mountaintop home with a massive view of South Lake Tahoe.

The owners provided everything except food and drinks.

It has a large full kitchen perfect for preparing our meals. Bar stools surround the kitchen which made it a joy to cook and chat at the same time.

Our family shared meals at the dining room table or had coffee on the large deck overlooking the city below.

We spent the most time in the family room at the lowest level of the home playing games, playing pool, karaoke singing, a jacuzzi tub soak, and TV.

The beds were very comfortable, and the showers were the best we ever had.

The owners are extremely nice and easy to contact. They even texted us “Happy New Year”.

The home is about 1 mile from the Heavenly Valley Ski Lifts at Stagecoach Lodge and Boulder Lodge.

We would definitely stay there again.

Luxurious and refined. Everything top of the line. Jaw-dropping view of Lake Tahoe, especially at sunrise and sunset.

Owner's Response: Daniel, thanks for that review. "Jaw-dropping" is a phrase that web sites looking for clicks tend to vastly overuse, but we're humbled that you think it fits for Tahoe Blue Estate. We hope to see you and your family again in the near future!
