Villa Harrah is the legendary Lake Tahoe estate built in 1963 by Harrah’s Lake Tahoe Hotel and Casino founder William F. Harrah. According to the locals, Bill Harrah had the absolute choice where to build on the lake since he was one of the first to do so. Thus, Villa Harrah offers “the best view of the lake”, unsurpassed by all others. Only fifty miles from Reno-Tahoe International Airport and twelve miles from Lake Tahoe Airport, Villa Harrah is located in an exceptionally convenient area of Lake Tahoe, making it an ideal location for recreation and entertainment. Both extreme outdoor enthusiasts and family-focused adventurers will find precisely what they are looking for literally around the corner or down the street. The estate is minutes away from world-class performers, ski resorts, casinos, shopping and restaurants.

The mystique of Villa Harrah comes with true historic accounts and folklore alike. As one of the first casino greats to transform the gaming industry, Harrah filled the house with world-famous entertainers. His high-profile guests included celebrities such as Frank Sinatra and the Rat-Pack, Judy Garland and many others all of whom could utilize the secret tunnel that runs the length of the property to conceal their arrival, party the night away and then relax and refresh in the luxury accommodations that Harrah meticulously oversaw. Villa Harrah was recently reimagined, redesigned and remodeled throughout, and although completely modernized, still whispers of a time-passed with some original features remaining such as the famed secret tunnel that leads to the inviting private beach and pier. The villa has over 20,000 sq. ft. of interior space and impeccable amenities and finishes. The front door opens to an impressive wall of glass that frames a stunning world renowned panoramic lake and mountain view. With an oversized seating area, floating fireplace, expansive dining area, billiards and custom bar, the great room is the ultimate centerpiece for Tahoe glamour and unforgettable entertaining.
This remarkable home boasts a dazzling array of high-end details, including walnut and gray elm cabinetry, imported flooring inlays, custom concrete sinks, stone slabs imported from Brazil, European fumed oak floors, leather and steel railings, and horse hair murals.
There are seven ensuite bedrooms including a bunk-room that sleeps twelve. Each bedroom was specially designed to maximize a spectacular view of the Lake. The villa is filled with resort style amenities such as a full spa that includes a steam room, sauna, jetted bath, cold plunge, a Himalayan Salt Cave, and a hair/nail salon. In addition, there’s a home theater, retro-style wet bar, spacious terraces and a lakeside pool.
The balance of luxury and adventure has been the essence of Villa Harrah from the beginning and will continue on with endless stories to tell.
