House of The Week 1.3: Saint James Place

Welcome to 10401 Saint James Place, Truckee CA

This beautiful home is located in idyllic Truckee, California, and is the perfect getaway home from the busy Bay Area life. A beautiful little community located 20 mins from North Lake Tahoe it’s the perfect place to put your feet up with a hot chocolate and count snow flakes.

A beautiful floor to ceiling stone fireplace is the centerpiece of this cozy spot for you and your guests to gather after a long exciting day on the slopes. Large windows flood the space with natural light and gorgeous tree views.

The wood panelled ceiling gives this home a luxurious log cabin feel. We love the contrast between the dark hard wood floors and light wood on the cabinets. Imagine yourself  cutting into delicious banana pancakes on a sunny Saturday morning.

  Don’t need all three dedicated bedrooms and looking for a separate kids room or a private getaway?   Make this bedroom a den or media room.

Love the soaring vaulted ceilings in this stunning master but wouldn’t this make an awesome bunkroom too?

Another good sized bedroom large enough for a king sized bed with sliding patio doors leading out to the beautiful natural surroundings.
