I loved seeing the Wall Street Journal House of the Year in the Friday Mansion section. This year’s winner is a 4,100 square-foot condo at Fleur du Lac Estates on the West Shore of Lake Tahoe. This part of the world is near and dear to me as it is where I have always spent my summers. My grandparents had a home down the road and my family does as well. Henry Kaiser built a fabulous lake front estate on this 15 acre prized location. It was legendary and his original boat house still stands. I remember when they filmed The Godfather, Part II at Mr. Kaiser’s property as my grandmother intended to be an extra in the movie.
