SHAKESPEARE RANCH129 Acres 200 Feet Lake Frontage 5,111 SF Entertainment Barn 7 Guest Homes Shakespeare Ranch offers a preeminent year-round lifestyle like no other single destination in the World combined with Nevada tax benefits - all just four hours from Silicon Valley and under an hour by air.Property highlights include a lakefront home, over 200 feet of lake frontage on Lake Tahoe with a community pier and launch service to 5 private boat buoys. This historic ranch boasts nearly 35,000 square feet of improvements including a historic entertainment barn built in 1873 with chef's kitchen and plans for a new approximately 9,500 square foot estate home with garage. There are 7 guest homes and cabins, and along with the barn, office and pool building, feature 15 bedrooms, 16 bathrooms, 7 kitchens and many garages centered around a green with gazebo, in close proximity to the common buildings and amenities. The 5,111 square foot Entertainment Barn was built in 1873 then moved to its present location and restored by the current owners, outfitted with a gourmet kitchen and wine room for celebrity events. "They don't make barns like this in Texas," President Bush told the owners when he visited the Ranch one summer. Outside, the buildings frame a large central grass courtyard, the site of many parties on warm summer evenings, and fireside events when the snow flies.There is a grand Pool House with indoor pool and steam spa, fireside dining, an outdoor hot tub, a fully equipped gym, an art loft, an executive office suite, a staging kitchen for catering, and guest bathrooms. There are horse stables with paddocks, a green house, vegetable gardens, animal enclosures, rodeo grounds with pens and bleachers where the annual "Glenbrook Rodeo" is held, and the iconic Shakespeare Rock monolith lies within the estate, a backdrop for this awe inspiring hamlet. The annual "Glenbrook Rodeo" is a tradition dating back to the 1940's, revived by the current owners in 2000, featuring bull riding, bronco riding, ribbon roping, and barrel racing. In addition to the rodeo, there are carnival games and a silent auction followed by an extraordinary dinner prepared by restaurateur Emeril Lagasse at the Barn. The evening also features a top-notch private performance by a surprise A-list entertainer. Past headliners have included Robin Williams, Jay Leno, Lionel Richie, Kenny "Babyface" Edmonds, Kenny Loggins, the band America, and this year featuring Smokey Robinson. Plans and renderings are available for a new main residence. This grand home, along with the other remodeled cabins and guest homes, are the vision of renowned architect Marc Appleton. The new home is designed in the New England vernacular, in keeping with the historic clapboard and shingle style homes of this lakeside community. Plenty of space for entertaining is designed in the wrap-around deck, and grand spaces with indoor/outdoor living. Private living quarters will feature en-suite bedrooms on the second floor, with spectacular elevated views. Additional parcels and entitlements available, please contact Claudia Thompson for more information.
