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.
