Fronted by a wooden lodge facade, 10244 Modane Place at first appears to be a traditional luxury cabin. However, further inspection of the well-appointed exterior and the bold modern interior reveals a stylish, contemporary home. It is this playful balance between nature and luxury that distinguishes this 2,750-square-foot property, as well as a large portion of the Truckee real estate market.

Large picture windows run along the upper edges of the wall in the main living room where towering ceilings and an open floor plan make for a bright, airy space with views of the surrounding mountains. A massive steel ceiling beam, black casement windows and a metal fireplace give the home a somewhat industrial edge while wood accents throughout recall the forested mountain setting.
