861 Chilicothe is the home that the quote “LOCATION, Location, LOCATION!” must have stemmed from Seriously folks, this North Upper Truckee home offers one of the most magical settings you will find though out the Lake Tahoe basin. Not only is the lot larger than average (with over 12,000 SF of land,) the property backs up to miles of the Washoe State Park. Simply put, it is breath taking. Imagine, stepping out your door, strapping up some cross country skis or lacing up your sneakers and then just heading out into nature for hours. If that sounds like too much work, grab a juicy novel and settle into the quiet woods for the ultimate in escapes. In fact, you can walk to the the Upper Truckee River. The home is set back on the lot for extra privacy with a spacious double garage up front.
Time to check out the home. One enters this single story home by stepping into the sunny stone entry floor which is ideal for shedding nature’s residue. From here, one leads into the open living room. The first feature you will notice is the custom river rock hearth surrounding the wood burning stove. This classic stone theme continues into both the kitchen and master bath. Knotty pine cabinets add to the overall cabin themed ambiance. From the living room, one passes through French Doors into the master suite. This suite features a private bath, a built-in cove ideal for a desk or sitting area, vaulted ceilings and a door that opens to the backyard. Down the hall are two guest bedrooms, one accented with a wood paneled wall. The exterior property features are just as wonderful. The double garage features two doors allowing for pull through possibilities for RV’s. There is plenty of off-road winter parking for company. And, a rare find these days, 861 Chilicothe is proud to announce that the Tahoe Regional Planning Agency’s BMP’s (Best Management Practices) are completed and certified.
