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 has undergone a recent transformation, artfully reimagined, meticulously redesigned, and thoughtfully remodeled, all while gracefully honoring its profound historical heritage. 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 plus an additional bedroom that serves as a bunk-room capable of sleeping up to twelve additional guests. Every individual bedroom has been exquisitely crafted to capture and optimize the breathtaking views of Lake Tahoe.

Within the villa, an abundance of luxurious resort-style amenities awaits, including an expansive spa sanctuary boasting a steam room, sauna, jetted bath, invigorating cold plunge, a soothing Himalayan Salt Cave, as well as an indulgent hair and nail salon. Furthermore, an opulent home theater, a nostalgic retro-style wet bar, sprawling terraces, and a captivating lakeside pool complete this unparalleled oasis of refinement.

Since its inception, Villa Harrah has embodied the perfect harmony between beauty and exhilaration, and this timeless fusion will persist, promising a perpetually unfolding tapestry of enchanting memories to be discovered and shared.
