What’s the best part of owning a home in California’s ski country? You get to live somewhere most people only dream of visiting. Add a remote forest setting and a ski resort practically in your backyard (you heard right), and the location approaches perfection.

The $7.299-million forest home for sale at 9513 Cloudcroft Court in Truckee has it all. The property is in Martis Camp, a private luxury community in the Lake Tahoe area. One of the big perks: access to an exclusive lodge and high-speed quad lift that whisks you to Northstar California ski resort—no lines, no parking lots, no waiting — less than half a mile away. There’s shuttle and valet service to the lodge too.

The open-concept great room contains the living room, dining area and kitchen.

Skiers and snowboarders will revel in the close-to-home slopes. Northstar, by the way, marks its 50th season this year and, as of late January, already had logged 336 inches of snowfall—100 inches more than last year’s totals. “This 50th season is going to be one to remember for the ages!” the ski resort tweeted recently. The Tahoe area has been a skier’s dream this season, which is expected to last well into spring.

But access to great skiing isn’t the only thing about the property that dazzles.

A wall of sliding glass doors and windows bring in alpine views.

The home has five bedrooms and 5.5 bathrooms on two levels in a quiet, woodsy cul-de-sac. The perfect buyer? “I think it’s going to be a family with kids that really wants to take advantage of the proximity to the ski lodge,” says listing agent Liza Killen of Tahoe Mountain Realty. “It’s definitely a family home.”

Built in 2014, the house sits on two levels and was designed by Kelly & Stone Architects to maximize forest views. Ceiling-to-floor windows in the great room keep nature close; glass doors open to the outside. The dining room also has view-facing windows. The kitchen’s granite-top island is big enough for casual dining, and pass-through windows ease entertaining outdoors.

The sizeable island creates a spot for casual dining or watching the chef at work.

The exterior is made of cedar planks framed by black patina metal and natural rock pillars. The tilted roof and strong lines give the home a contemporary feel that fits beautifully amid trees on the one-acre lot.

There’s a primary bedroom on each floor, plus guest rooms on the main level. The media room and additional bedrooms, including one configured with four bunk beds, are below.

The bedrooms include two primary suites and a bunkroom for a total of five bedrooms.
