It’s the year of 2020 … perfect vision! That joke has probably been made at least 5 million times, so I’ll say it once and be done forever. As we enter a new year (decade?!), inspirations and goals arise; dreams rush in to make the best life out of what we have. Why not lump a brand-new house into your game plan? These three homes will satisfy any cliché list of resolutions to be fit, fab, and have some fun this year.
A cozy little condo to start your year off right! You know what’s better than moving into a random new home? Moving into a new home that’s been really well taken care of by its previous owners. That’s what this condo is, offering a tastefully remodeled pair of bedrooms and bathrooms, expanded loft, and enclosed deck. This upstairs unit also offers amazing views of the surrounding nature. Vaulted ceilings, hardwood floors, granite kitchen countertops … oh, you’ve already signed the contract? Cool. Enjoy.

How remiss would I be if I didn’t toss a multi-million-dollar home into the mix? It’s Tahoe, after all. If you’re financially blessed in 2020, this house sits on just under a half-acre, and is full of natural tones, natural materials, and natural light — think walnut floors butting up to a stone fireplace next to floor-to-ceiling windows. And whether you’re a gourmet chef or more a late-night fridge explorer, the kitchen is magnifique! Stainless steel appliances, double ovens, six-burner gas cooktop, walk-in pantry, a prep sink, and more. The listing provides a 3D tour, meaning you can explore every nook and cranny of your soon-to-be home before you make things official. Lots of space to fill and bend to your will, both inside and out. And don’t forget the private gazebo out back!

Sometimes stereotypes are nice. For example, this classic cabin in the woods! The cute A-frame backs up to conservancy land, and is surrounded by tall cedars and aspens, offering romance and privacy in one go. Downstairs boasts a large living room and kitchen spaces with access to a deck and hot tub (!!); upstairs you’ll find the bedrooms. Plenty of room to stretch outside, with hiking and cross-country ski trails circling the property. The best kind of fun can be found out in nature, right? Get out and go.
