INCLINE VILLAGE, Nev. (KRNV & MyNews4.com) -- Summertide in Crystal Bay, Nev., one of the many reclusive retreats Howard Hughes in the 50s, has hit the the housing market for $19.5 million.
The 5.5-acre home is listed by Chase International.
It’s rumored that Marilyn Monroe, who was no stranger to Lake Tahoe love affairs, had a tryst with Hughes at the mountain home. Chase International says that, underneath the Gatsby-like lifestyle, Summertide is a log cabin home, inspired by the camps of the Adirondacks. The main home was built from local timber in 1934 and has five bedrooms, four baths and an office. A guest cottage was built in 1940 and a detached garage fits up to four cars. The gated and fenced property offers 500 feet of lakefront, panoramic lake views, pier, buoy, and a huge meadow.
The property also consists of five separate but contiguous parcels.
The home is listed by Shari Chase, Karen Bruno and Tom Bruno. For more information, visit www.summertide.net
