Estate off Lake Tahoe with private funiculars lists for $75M

An estate known as Crystal Pointe off Lake Tahoe has just been listed for $75 million, the Wall Street Journal reports.

It’s a big price, to be sure, but it’s also a big estate. Clocking in at more than 16,000 square feet of interior space, the property is composed of a main house, guesthouse, a beach house that is only accessible via helicopter, stairs or the estate’s private funicular (there are two in total), and a caretaker’s apartment. There’s also 5.14 acres of land, and 525 feet of lake frontage, a total of eight bedrooms and 13 fireplaces, a private movie theater, “magical gardens” and hidden sculptures of animals everywhere.

According to the WSJ, the current owners are Stuart Yount, the chairman and CEO of the building company Fortifiber and his wife Geri. They bought the land in 1994, and have basically been building the homes/renovating them ever since. They’re moving because they’re looking to downsize, which kind of makes sense given the size of this place.

Shari Chase, Susan Lowe, Kerry Donovan and Mike Dunn of Chase International have the listing. [WSJ]
