Lakefront, Lake Tahoe

Lakefront property on the shores of Lake Tahoe have been the pinnacle of luxury for generations. As intricately as Lake Tahoe is tied to the history of California, so too have lakefront properties told a story of prosperity. As early prospectors gave way to railroad barons and, ultimately, titans of industry, the chain of title to lakefront property reads like western history book.

With supply permanently constrained, the value of Tahoe lakefront property may never be questioned. Whether the sandy beaches and estate properties of the West Shore, expansive views and all day sun of Tahoe City and the North Shore, or exclusive addresses of Incline Village and Glenbrook, Tahoe lakefronts provide access to the jewel of the Sierras and a lifestyle of tranquility and ease not found elsewhere.

Tahoe lakefronts provide the ultimate, all-season access as a private gateway to the lake in summer months and an easy commute to any of North Lake Tahoe’s premiere ski resorts in winter.

The nuance of real property in the Tahoe Basin can be a complex riddle. Chartered with maintaining the quality and clarity of Lake Tahoe, various local agencies have created a system of ordinances and metrics that govern development, and redevelopment, of both residential and commercial properties within the jurisdiction. As such, premium value has been placed on updated properties providing expansive window walls and greater lake access than previously available through modern engineering. Further, metrics including site coverage, have become sought after commodities for those wishing to customize a lakeside purchase.

Tahoe Mountain Realty offers a long and distinct history with waterfront properties including representation of elite buyers and sellers on all sides of the lake. TMR has navigated new construction, multi-family development, and lakefront subdivision in addition to marketing the highest dollar lakefront listings in California.
