INCLINE VILLAGE, Nev. — A stylish luxury log home in Incline Village went on the market recently, with a feature that makes it stand out among other mountain homes — a rare silver LEED certification.

The home at 864 Lakeshore Blvd., which is listed for $4.5 million by the Donovan Group at Chase International, won the Best in Basin Award from the Tahoe Regional Planning Agency in 2012 (it was built in 2011).

The home has four bedrooms, four bathrooms, two half baths, a four-car garage, game room, den, and gourmet kitchen, according to a news release on behalf of Chase International.

The master bathroom boasts a Japanese soaking tub — one of the many uniquely elegant modern touches found throughout the 5,238-square-foot residence.

Further, the water-wise landscaped yard features a custom-made outdoor sauna and in-ground Jacuzzi.

“It’s rare to find this kind of detailed craftsmanship and elegance in a home so inviting and functional while also being environmentally friendly,” Debbie Hansen of the Donovan Group said in a statement.

Log Castles out of Roseburg, Ore. (whose team concentrated on the exterior), and Richards Built Homes (a local contractor whose expert craftsmanship focused on the interior) incorporated many cutting-edge construction elements that earned the estate a silver certification.

Designers and homeowners are familiar with LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design), a prestigious program that recognizes best-in-class building strategies and practices. There are four levels of LEED certification – certified, silver, gold and platinum.

According to Chase, there are very few buildings and homes in Truckee-Tahoe region that have earned silver status.

Sustainable features include hickory hardwood flooring engineered to cover radiant heat; extensive insulation that exceeds minimum code requirements; low voltage dimmable lights throughout; a whole house fan; frost-free outdoor faucets; and a state-of-the-art home automation systems courtesy of five Crestron iPad docking stations and two iPod docking stations.
