Brightest Star

The premiere luxury penthouses are now available at The Ritz-Carlton Residences, Lake Tahoe.



From a private balcony, on a crystal-clear night, the stars above The Ritz-Carlton, Lake Tahoe, shine with brilliance. The North Star radiates in these constellations, but it also shines Northstar, Calif., on the northern shore of Lake Tahoe. Peacefully nestled in this white mountain terrain, The Ritz-Carlton Residences, Lake Tahoe is the arbiter of luxury homes among the many snow-dusted resorts. And in the luxury real estate market, the elevated residences now available will likely be sold as quickly as the sun rises.

The 23 penthouse residences available on the top and third floor of this five-diamond hotel feature unique floor plans, with floor-to-ceiling windows that capture the best views of all the seasons. From summer-time water-sports to challenging steeps, there is no shortage of activities to discover. With ski-in/ski-out access to the slopes of Northstar, owning one of the residences affords both convenience and spectacular beauty.

Jay Jeffers, the San Francisco-based designer commissioned to create these three custom show homes, brings cosmopolitan style to the mountains, balancing contemporary design with organic nuances. Together he calls them “California Mountain.” Jeffers, who was named one of the county’s top designers by ELLE Decor magazine, was hand selected for this mountain undertaking and complex design project that received LEED Certification from U.S. Green Building Council.

The 20-foot ceilings featured in the great rooms of these residential palaces waste no space. Finished wood beams trim over-sized windows and the ceiling, a perfect example of the union of the designer’s opulence and green thumb. The use of a sophisticated cool gray palette as the backdrop to a mix of industrial and natural materials, distinguishes these residences from provincial mountain living. From the summer terrace, views of the Sierra Crest, Martis Valley and Carson Range can be enjoyed year-round. A catering kitchen, wine cellar, fireplace and private home theater fulfill almost every entertainment need.

Outside, Tahoe unfolds panoramic natural grandeur with the exceptional five-star comforts for which the Ritz-Carlton is known. The mountain concierge service, ski valet and hotel spa are just a few of the luxurious extensions the legendary brand hosts. A short gondola ride away in the village, you can explore various specialty galleries and boutiques.

Comprised of two-, three- and four-bedroom penthouses that range from 1,554- to 3,407-square-feet, The Ritz-Carlton Residencies are whole-ownership homes, starting at $1.25 million. These custom show homes debuted Feb. 17 with a split-level penthouse due to launch mid-March. While the design aesthetic may appeal to a new generation of style-savvy consumers, Tahoe enthusiasts will undeniably fall in love with these luxurious homes perched on a mountain. In a California resort destination known for exceptional accommodations, The Ritz-Carlton Residences shine brightest from Northstar.
