Lake Tahoe estate sells for $20.9 million

An architecturally acclaimed home on the southeast shore of Lake Tahoe has sold for $20.9 million.

The geometrically designed Wovoka Estate is named after a Northern Paiute leader who was born in Nevada in 1856 and is credited with developing the tribal Ghost Dance across the West.

The five-bedroom, six-bath lakefront home was built on 2.7 acres near Zephyr Cove in 1999. Designed by renowned architect Theodore Brown, it has 9,100 square feet of living space, 19-foot-tall windows and a boulder in the living room. Waterfalls, a swimming pool, spa, boathouse and private pier accompany a private sandy beach just off Highway 50 in Glenbrook.

Listed in June for $24.9 million, it previously was owned by a trust of the family of the late Tahoe casino executive William Ledbetter.
