The Drum Estate, Estate of the Day
One of the last old-time estates on the west shore of Lake Tahoe in Meeks Bay, CA is up for sale. The Drum House, one of the last older estates on the west shore of Lake Tahoe has been listed at $36.5 million. The home was designed by San Francisco architect G. Albert Lansburgh and was bought by John Drum, president of the American Trust Co. in 1923. Sign On San Diego reports some of the key details of the home including the fact that the ten-bedroom main lodge was built with cedar logs shipped to Tahoe from Oregon. The Drum estate has a long history that includes a visit from Charles Lindbergh. The home was bought in 1961 by Erik Jonsson, former mayor of Dallas and founder of Texas Instruments. As the home has been passed down it now belongs to multiple members of the family which has prompted the sale. The lakefront 10-acre estate is composed of two parcels, one of which could also be subdivided into two pieces. Structures include the main lodge, three guest cottages, a modern, four-bedroom lakefront home, a boat house, tennis court and two piers.
