About Klaus Heinemann
We had been looking for a place in the mountains that would work well both for summer and winter vacations. Views and privacy were on the wish list. At the end of a showing tour, our agent remarked something like ' ... and there is one more place that came on the market just today, I haven't seen it myself.' Well, already when we drove into the driveway, we both knew instantly that this was the one! The views were out of this world -- and our minds immediately started spinning how one could remodel the house to maximize the views from each room! When we stood in the living room, we were literally taken away by the views. We had our offer in within the hour ...
Klaus Heinemann purchased this House in 2003
Why Klaus Heinemann chose Truckee
We then embarked on a fairly extensive remodeling activity, converting conventional railings to tempered glass railings that would not break up those stunning views; adding another wrap-around deck on the garage level; enlarging the small windows of the two main floor bedrooms to expansive sliding glass doors, leading to the new deck and opening up to the same stunning views from each bed; and converting the dead space underneath to another master bedroom suite, with its own view deck and built-in hot tub (avail. 6/1 - 10/31).
What makes this House unique
attractive low pricing for small groupings; private setting; no power lines intersecting the views; dry sauna with view window; level street access to three garages; free Internet and phone (incl. free LD and international LD).
