OUR JULIA MORGAN MASTERPIECE
Tethered just offshore, a wooden Chris Craft sparkles in morning light. Just up from the beach, a row of Adirondack chairs overlooks a wide lawn. Here sits a quaint cabin, wood smoke curls from its tall chimney through two tall pines. The year is 1936.
The cabin’s welcoming hand-wrought doorknocker reads Twin Pines. The tidy interior is bathed in warm woods, the joinery flawless from the wide plank floorboards to the intricate cathedral ceiling. In the fireplace, a crackling fire takes the chill off the morning. Outside, across a wide lawn and even wider beach, a vintage Chris Craft sits on the lift. The year is 2023.
With a painstaking eye for detail and unparalleled craftsmanship, this simple but elegant beach house is vintage Tahoe. The knotty pine walls, doors, and floors have been carefully restored to bring out their patina, thus accentuating the handcrafted, wrought iron hardware throughout the home.
