Looking Stateside, one of the most magnificent properties in Lake Tahoe, Nevada, is up for sale. The retreat lives up to its name, Tranquility, featuring its own peaceful, private lake, and is being sold by Joel Horowitz, ex-chief executive and co-founder of “preppy” fashion brand Tommy Hilfiger. Horowitz favours luxury.
Highlights of his home include a 3,200-bottle wine cellar with a door shipped from the grand Californian landmark Hearst Castle, a 17th-century Golden Age artwork collection, a bathroom made with gold and an indoor pool with a retractable roof for fine weather.
Drawing inspiration from grand designs, the customised foyer features a replica of the staircase from the Titanic. There is a cigar room fashioned after the lounge in New York’s St Regis Hotel and a mezzanine library inspired by the New York Public Library. Taking glamour to new heights, the nine-bedroom house is listed for £48.9 million with Sotheby’s International Realty.
