Why Martis Camp Is The Best Luxury Home Subdivision


Martis Camp subdivision in Truckee CA

 

Martis Camp is more than just an excellent golf destination, it is also famous for offering year round family fun and recreation. If you are looking for luxury homes in Truckee, then you should come to Martis Camp.

With many luxury homes recently built in Martis Camp, the entire subdivision exudes an atmosphere of camp-like warmth and welcome feeling for families, despite being a high-end subdivision of luxury properties.

Another reason why Martis Camp is such a hit is its accessibility. Unlike the typical mountain-enclaves, it won’t take you an entire day or two to get to Martis Camp. It’s only 30 minutes from the Reno Airport, a three hour drive from San Francisco, an hour flight from Southern California, and a two hour plane ride from Portland or Seattle.

The beauty of luxury homes in Martis Camp naturally attracts your attention on your first drive by the community. Martis Camp boasts of homes with diverse architectural styles ranging from Swiss chalets, cozy log cabins, to extremely modern homes designed by famous architects such as Ron Radziner, Dennis Zirbel, Faulkner Architects, Ryan Group Architects, Ward Young Architects, Kelly & Stone architects....among others.

The amenities in Martis Camp are also one of the reasons homeowners love it here. It is a well-known four-season destination with a lake that provides an excellent recreational spot for families to go fishing in the summer. In the winter, there is the Martis Camp Express Lift to Northstar-at-Tahoe for direct skiing access.  

Cozy setting inside the Lost Library

Culture and heritage are a big part of the Martis Camp way of life. Located within the Ponderosa Forest is a building called the “Lost Library". It’s a cozy log cabin with lots of books and newspapers where members can read, have coffee, or just relax in the peace and quiet among the soothing scent of pine trees. Members can also sit and relax in the nearby meditation rock garden.

Camp Lodge at Martis Camp

Another building meant to convey heritage and timelessness is the Camp Lodge, which is situated atop a 70-foot rock overlooking the Fazio golf course. The Camp Lodge provides breathtaking views of the Lookout Mountain, Carson Range, and Sierra Crest. John Sather, architect of the Camp Lodge, said the goal was to create a building that could last for 100 years or longer. Sather says of Camp Lodge, “We searched beyond the development world and went into 100-year-old buildings to understand and create great spaces. This was an opportunity that couldn't be squandered as we had a chance to design a building to stand the test of time."

Excellence in Education has put on a Martis Camp Home Tour for the last four years to raise fund for local schools. This is an opportunity for the public to see these extraordinary homes with distinctive designs and the latest trends and innovations in luxury home building.
