12766 Pinnacle Front View

Come home to cool mountain nights, warm summer days, and stay cozy in Chiaroscuro texture and warmth all winter long owning this brand new custom home built by Goodpaster Construction in Truckee, California near Lake Tahoe. 

Honoring art and hand-crafted techniques, the home abounds in accents of custom ironwork by Jude Goodpaster, Truckee's local artisan blacksmith. All ironwork in the home, from the deck & staircase railings to copper kitchen hood, even small details like the bathroom towel and toilet paper racks, are one-of-a-kind. As if the ironwork weren't already enough of a nod to the unique, the exceptional stonework, striking  hand-milled newel post woodwork add texture and contrast, making this a visually comfortable place to make your home.

Great Living: A Room with a View

Upon entry, the great room welcomes you home in caramel and natural tones... open to miles of mountain views. Settle in front of the massive stone fireplace, hang your wet mittens on the railroad tie hangers at intervals in the fireplace stone surround to dry, and cozy up for dinner simmering in the amazing open kitchen... complete with Italian Bertazzoni gas range, coveted by many, whether cook or chef.

Don't cook? That's fine, you might just want to sit and admire the way the mountain light highlights your gorgeous copper sinks while sipping a Pinot from your private cellar. Several top-notch personal chefs in the local area would adore cooking in your kitchen.
