A quick walk or bike ride from downtown Truckee is Sierra Meadows, with central access to shopping, schools, ski resorts, and all of the area’s recreation. An ideal neighborhood for full-time residents looking for a larger home that’s close to the heart of Truckee and offers a strong sense of community. And in the back of Sierra Meadows, nestled among the trees and backing to Forest Service land, are the smaller neighborhoods of Martiswoods Estates and Ponderosa Ranchos—these neighborhoods offer large estates in a quiet secluded setting for large and/or multi-generational families looking to settle comfortably and centrally in Lake Tahoe’s Truckee.
Prosser Lakeview Estates
Prosser Heights and Prosser Lakeview Estates is adjacent to Prosser Reservoir and is close to the neighboring Boca and Stampede Reservoirs. Residents enjoy proximity to miles and miles of U.S. Forest Service Land and a well-traveled network of dirt roads and trails for recreation. Prosser Lakeview Estates has just over 500 homesites and is located a mile from downtown Truckee. This is one of the rare neighborhoods in Lake Tahoe’s Truckee without any homeowners association dues or amenities but stepping out your front door; however, living in untamed nature is quite the advantage.
Martis Camp is Truckee’s premier luxury community with a private high-speed quad lift to Northstar California’s slopes, a 7,751-yard Tom Fazio designed golf course, and a members-only beach ‘shack’ right on the shores of Lake Tahoe. This family-centered private community has hosted The Beach Boys as well as the USGA Junior Amateur Golf Tournament and is home to a few well-known celebrities. A large swimming pool, bowling alley, movie theater, and exquisite restaurants sit on the 2,177-acre property among the 670+ large homesites.
When it comes to the Truckee real estate scene, Lahontan was the first of the private, gated luxury communities. You’ll find a wide spectrum of luxury homes, two award-winning golf courses, three pools, three tennis courts, and a 24-hour guarded gatehouse entry for an ultra-private four-season retreat. The best part? Paradise is located just a short 10-minute drive to Northstar California’s doorstep.
