About 21432 Donner Drive

Classic Tahoe style cabin from the 1930’s near Donner Summit. Almost 5 acres of private mountain estate scattered with many impressive granite boulders. Providing easy access to world class ski resorts (downhill and cross country), rock climbing, hiking trails to lakes and cycling. The house is perfectly preserved and is a timepiece that encapsulates an era of mountain living. Boasting an all-wood finish, inside and outside; with knotty pine walls & ceilings, and fir floors. The large granite fireplace, itself framed by built-in bookcases is the centerpiece of the great room. The dining area features a built-in bench suited for a large table, ideal for gatherings of family and friends. The kitchen provides a delightful environment for preparing meals and is conveniently located next to the dining area. An adjacent room hosts a pantry and the laundry room. Upstairs, the original 12 bunk bedroom has been transformed into a main suite with a clawfoot tub, and a built-in armoire. There are two separate en-suite bathrooms there as well. Adjoining the bedroom is a small private office with internet access. The East wing comprises of two bedrooms. One looks out on a giant granite boulder, “The Boulder bedroom,” the other which has windows facing East, South and West is called “The Sunny bedroom.” At the end of the closet lined hallway is a shared bathroom. There are two additional rooms on the West wing, one featuring high ceilings and its own wood burning stove. The second, smaller room has a closet and en-suite bathroom. This wing can be purposed as additional guest bedrooms, living space or its own semi-separate unit. The house has three sources of heat. The 1,000-gallon propane tank fuels a wall furnace and kitchen range. Almost every room has its own electric wall heater. Three cords of wood can be stored inside, which is especially desirable during the winter months. Newly painted exterior and metal roof. A welcoming deck looks down on wild flowers among aspens, evergreens and granite walkways. Don’t miss the professional Pétanque court in the back yard. There is ample parking for four cars in the various driveways. On the upper lot a seasonal stream flows from the Northern to the Western corner, and an older, concrete tennis court can also be found there. This cabin hasn’t changed hands in the past 45 years and has been loved by only two other families since it was built in the 1930’s. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to own an authentic, large mountain home. The sale of this property also includes the adjacent vacant parcel on 21420 Castle Drive. Both parcels total 4.96 acres.
