Nestled in the wooded hills surrounding Lake Tahoe in Nevada, Summertide is a 5.5 acre estate which once belonged to famously reclusive billionaire Howard Hughes and, as such, offers the ideal family retreat with ultimate privacy.

The estate also boasts a detached four-car garage, extensive outdoor spaces including terraces, dining areas and children's play areas, a Jacuzzi and 150 metres of lake frontage with a pier, boat lift and mooring buoy facilities.

Summertide is listed for sale with John Leles for $14.5 million.
