This spectacular mountain dream house was designed by SANDBOX Studio, located in the Martis Camp community of Truckee, California. Leading up to the home’s entry point is a dramatic entry bridge, which spans a multi-tier, cascading water feature to a 14-foot-tall airplane hangar-style door.

This mountain getaway home is a dream-come-true for a San Francisco Bay Area couple with four young children and their extended family members to gather. With a love for entertaining, this is the perfect escape from the hustle and bustle of the city. This transitional style mountain pad offers 7,800 square feet of sumptuous living space for the main house and 1,200 square feet for the guest house.

Above: Guests enter through a custom-designed steel pivot door and are immediately greeted by the great room where two massive limestone blocks are used as an entry table. The blocks weigh 3,200 pounds each, set on concrete flooring to support their weight. They were craned into place before the roof could go on! Above the blocks are custom fabricated sunflower pendants,  suspended from chains on the ceiling.

A wonderful indoor-outdoor connection can be found throughout, capitalizing on the magnificent views surrounding this home.
