Kennedy Wilson debuts The Ritz-Carlton Residences, Lake Tahoe

Real estate investment and services company Kennedy Wilson and its partners officially debuted The Ritz-Carlton Residences, Lake Tahoe.

Located mid-mountain at Northstar, The Residences is comprised of 23 penthouses. The property is the area’s first Forbes Four Star and AAA Five Diamond resort and the first Ritz-Carlton resort to receive LEED Certification from U.S. Green Building Council.

In conjunction with the grand opening of The Residences, Kennedy Wilson is to unveil three custom show homes by designer Jay Jeffers. To be debuted are: a three-bedroom and a four-bedroom residence by end-February, and a four-bedroom split-level penthouse, which will debut in mid-March 2013. Jeffers was engaged by Kennedy Wilson to conceptualize the design, look and feel for the model homes, a move expected to bring cosmopolitan style to the mountains.

The residences are whole ownership homes consisting of two-, three- and four-bedroom penthouses ranging from 1,554 square feet to 3,407 square feet. The ski-in/ski-out residences, located at an elevation of 7,000 feet, boast views of Northstar Mountain, Martis Valley and Mt. Rose.

Owners of the penthouses will enjoy pre-arrival concierge service, valet parking, a Residence Concierge, Ski Valet services, a private entry corridor and an elevator that delivers owners to their penthouses. Owners will also benefit from priority access to the facilities, services and amenities of the hotel, including its 17,000-square-foot Highlands Spa, signature lounges and Manzanita restaurant, in-residence dining, Executive Business Service Center and The Ritz Kids program.
