House of the Moment: Glass Lair on Lake Tahoe


Location: Crystal Bay, Nevada

What We Love About It: All sharp angles and sleek lines, this transparent wonder-house looks like a sci-fi fantasy. And 98 feet of lake frontage doesn’t hurt either.

Listing Price: $39,750,000

Ever want to live like a Bond villain on the wooded shores of a deep alpine lake? Well, now’s your chance.

This spectacular contemporary Tahoe home features four bedrooms, four and one-half bathrooms and 8,694 square feet of living space clinging to the steep, forested hillside, but that doesn’t even begin tell you what you really need to know. It’s all about glass.

As in a sinuous, six-story glass stairwell. Or a five-story glass elevator. And knockout lake views from jutting walls of panoramic windows. And if you tire of gazing at the crystalline blue surface of America’s second deepest lake, there’s also a super-chic gym and spa room.

Rest assured that when you do feel like getting your feet wet — or embarking on a secret mission — there is a private steel pier and boatlift for your watercraft.
