OLYMPIC VALLEY — The Olympic Valley residence at 254 Granite Chief Road recently sold for $8.5 million, making it the highest priced home sale in Olympic Valley to date.

The sale price of 254 Granite Chief is nearly $3 million higher than the previous record home sale price for Olympic Valley, also known as Squaw Valley.

Chicago architectural firm Strawn.Sierralta designed the modern 5,450 square foot home, which boasts reclaimed redwood from the Reno flume, fully retractable floor to ceiling window walls, and a soaring living space surrounded by the world class Squaw Valley ski area.

“Sierra Sotheby’s International Realty and Squaw Valley both enjoy an international presence in the truest sense. We were able to instantly present this incredible home to the entire world through our network of offices and agents,” Jeff Hamilton, co-listing agent and managing broker for SSIR said.

“We had the advantage working for our sellers on this one, and it hit the mark spot on. No other firm can match the marketing of fine homes, especially on the international stage,” co-listing agent Bill Murphy said.

Sierra Sotheby’s second quarter micro market report data indicates a 55.94 percent increase in the average sale price of Olympic Valley single family homes from 2012 to 2013. For more Lake Tahoe micro market report data, or for more information about SSIR, visit www.sierrasothebysrealty.com.
