Boulders: A Neighborhood Blending Iconic Snow Country Tradition With a Distinctly Modern Mountain Style

Share this Post!

Mountainside at Northstar, Lake Tahoe’s exclusive on-mountain, ski-through community, has broken ground on a new $60 million neighborhood, Boulders.

With a total of 18 residences, plus one impressive single-family home, Boulders will begin welcoming owners in early 2018.

The Boulders site itself is unique, not just in its location, breathtaking view, and how it is woven among the enclave’s namesake granite boulders, but also in how it sets itself apart from surrounding developments. With generous living homes at an attractive price points, the neighborhood offers four distinct approaches to mountain living, each meeting different needs and lifestyles.


These three-bedroom, including a loft bunkroom, three-and-a-half bathroom residences spanning 2,900 square feet, are built for adventurous families or groups of friends with expansive layouts and easy access to four-season fun. They feature foldaway doors that open from the great room to the outside, offering both privacy and vast, uninterrupted views.


These four-bedrooms, four-and-a-half bathroom residences are generously spread over 3,728 square feet and include amenities, such as a master steam shower, a home theater, professional grade kitchens, and an outdoor hot tub.

Four-bedroom, four-and-a-half bath residences feature commanding views and foldaway doors, with a total of 3,205 square feet of living space and spacious outdoor areas, including fire pits and hot tubs.

Anchoring the Boulders is a one-of-a-kin, 4,900-square-foot, single-family residence, featuring oversized, indoor-outdoor living areas, concentrated on one level.

Residents have a choice of two well-appointed interior packages, with the upgrade options.

The spectacular panoramic views are the inspiration and guiding force behind Boulders. From specific site orientation and careful attention to spatial relationships, to architectural design and specificity of materials used, the goal for each residence is to celebrate the most inspiring natural assets.

Mountainside Partners tapped BAR Architects, a San Francisco-based architectural firm, to lead the design. With a relaxed, sophisticated architectural design, Boulders blends iconic snow country tradition with a distinctly modern mountain style. A simple palette of materials, including steel, glass, and wood, complements the surrounding natural environment, while bringing warmth to the inviting interiors.

While Boulders is a true enclave in every sense of the word, its place within the larger Mountainside community adds an experience-enhancing dimension to living here. It is purposefully created with the four-season, all-terrain, multi-sport enthusiast in mind. With immediate access to the area’s renowned summer and winter terrain, owners can take advantage of a 40-mile hiking and biking network of trails just outside the front door.

With an emphasis on community-building amenities, Mountainside strategically placed Boulders a short walk or pedal away from the Treehouse, Yoga Studio, Rendezvous Cabins, and the new kids’ area, Play Acre. Mountainside residency is also supported with additional resort-style services, including the adventure expertise of the Outfitters and spa privileges at the exclusive Ritz-Carlton, Lake Tahoe, right next door.
