Home of the Week: Baseball Legend Ty Cobb’s Lake Tahoe Estate
In our newest ‘Home of the Week’ we move from Kid Rock’s home in Malibu to baseball Hall of Famer Ty Cobb’s Lake Tahoe estate.
Ty Cobb’s lodge at Cave Rock Cove, Nevada is on the market for the first time at $6.5 million and is a testament to luxury and a magical by-gone era reminiscent of “The Great Gatsby”. The historic lodge is set on an impressive 1.02 acres with over 140 feet of private pristine lakeshore access.
Developed in the late 1930s soon after his induction into the Baseball Hall of Fame, this 4 bedroom and 4 bath estate features the latest and greatest finishes and appliances but still is highlighted by its rustic original character. The interior of this property is dominated by a stone floor-to-ceiling fireplace, a delightfully warm pine interior and a dining space offering up stunning lake and mountain views.
Not only is the inside of this home the kind of space that simply can not be duplicated in this day and age, but the outdoor area belonging to the property takes full advantage of Lake Tahoe’s beauty and splendor. I can vividly imagine Ty Cobb and other baseball icons and even Hollywood greats who must have enjoyed lively conversation on the spacious deck that leads to landscaped grounds and the beach!
This home offers up an ideal setting for those who prefer quiet or for those who enjoy entertaining boatloads of friends and family. Click here if you’d like to learn more about this home listed by David Cloutier with Coldwell Banker Select Real Estate
