Iconic Lakefront Sanctuary in Incline Village
Owning a once-in-a-lifetime iconic estate is an opportunity that transcends merely buying a luxury property. Today, the Old Forge – Wynn Estate offers just that prospect, and is currently listed for sale in Lake Tahoe.
In 1993, Steve Wynn purchased the most coveted five-acre, lakefront parcel among billionaire row on Lakeshore Boulevard in Incline Village, Nevada.
With no cost spared, he transformed it into an architectural masterpiece. Seamlessly nestled within its natural surroundings, the property is a sanctuary with uninterrupted vistas of Lake Tahoe.
In the 1980s and 1990s, Wynn played a pivotal role in the transformation of the Las Vegas Strip. He developed several iconic resorts, including The Mirage and Bellagio. The Bellagio is world-renowned for its upscale design and the famous Bellagio Fountains.
Wynn brought the same elegance and craftsmanship in constructing this 12,661-square-foot home, built with locally sourced wood and stone. The main home contains three en-suite bedrooms along with an elegant primary suite that boasts wraparound, floor-to-ceiling views of the lake.
Located on the Nevada side of Lake Tahoe, this estate is walled and gated, and surrounded by towering pines and breathtaking views. The property is also protected by a state-of-the-art security system and offers the epitome of privacy and seclusion.
Old Forge - Wynn Estate
Known as the Old Forge – Wynn Estate, this exquisite compound sits on 210 feet of private, sandy beach and includes a deep-water pier for the freshwater yacht. It also includes a boat hoist, and a personal watercraft platform.
Upon entering the gates of this opulent retreat, a distinct aura of seclusion unfolds, a rare ambiance unmatched anywhere else in Lake Tahoe. Stepping into the residence, one is met with a profound sense of awe and reverence for the impeccable design.
The vaulted living room offers amazing lake views, and connects to the expansive terrace. The 5,000 square feet of outdoor space is easily accessible from each room on the main floor. The property also features an intimate family room with a magnificent stone fireplace.
The main house also features a dedicated wellness room/gym, a gourmet kitchen, spacious media/game room with a bar, an extensive wine room, and multiple outdoor decks and balconies.
Luxurious Guest House
Additionally, the property boasts a 1,536-square-foot, three-bedroom guesthouse, situated privately among the pines. The guest house features three additional bedrooms, and in total, the entire estate includes seven bedrooms and seven full bathrooms.
“We have so many stunning homes in Incline Village, but when I walked through the front door of this home for the first time and looked out at the lake from the deck, I could hardly catch my breath,” says listing agent Christine Perry of Christie’s International Real Estate Sereno. “It truly hit me that the decision to build on this spot was brilliant. It feels like you are walking into another world when you come through that door.”
Wynn sold the property to the current owners and it closed as Lake Tahoe’s most expensive listing at the time. The current owners spent millions on additional upgrades, but the unique history and coveted lake location are what makes this property a treasure to own.
