About 21432 Donner Drive

Classic 1930s Tahoe-style cabin near Donner Summit, nestled on nearly 5 acres of a private mountain estate adorned with impressive granite boulders. This property offers easy access to world-class ski resorts (both downhill and cross-country), rock climbing, hiking trails to lakes, and cycling. The house is a perfectly preserved timepiece that encapsulates an era of mountain living, featuring an all-wood finish inside and out, with knotty pine walls and ceilings, and fir floors. The centerpiece of the great room is a large granite wood-burning fireplace framed by built-in bookcases. The dining area features a built-in bench suited for a large table, ideal for family and friend gatherings. The kitchen, conveniently located next to the dining area, provides a delightful environment for meal preparation. An adjacent room hosts a pantry and 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 and an adjoining small private office with internet access. The east wing comprises two bedrooms: the "Boulder Bedroom" overlooking a granite boulder and the "Sunny Bedroom" with windows facing east, south, and west. At the end of the closet-lined hallway is a shared bathroom. The west wing includes two additional rooms, one featuring high ceilings and its own wood-burning stove, and the other a smaller room with a closet and en-suite bathroom. This wing can serve as additional guest bedrooms, living space, or a semi-separate unit. The house has three sources of heat: a 1,000-gallon propane tank that fuels a wall furnace and kitchen range, electric wall heaters in almost every room, and storage for three cords of wood, ideal for winter months. The exterior is newly painted, and the house boasts a durable metal roof. A welcoming deck overlooks wildflowers among aspen, evergreens, and granite walkways. There is also a Petanque court in the backyard and ample parking for five to six cars in various driveways. On the upper lot, a seasonal stream flows from the northern to the western corner, where an older concrete tennis court can also be found. This cabin, unchanged hands in the past 50 years, has been cherished by only two other families since its construction in the 1930s. 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 at 21420 Castle Drive, with both parcels totaling 4.96 acres.
