5. Small Town, Many Offerings
North Lake Tahoe is relatively small—spanning just 22 miles—but the real estate offerings vary greatly; no two homes or communities within it are quite the same. A three bedroom, two bath home in one area can be worth far more than that same home just down the street—it all depends on the home’s proximity to the lake, ski resorts, or highly coveted HOA amenities.
There are several “luxury communities'' in North Lake Tahoe—such as Martis Camp, Lahontan, and Schaffer’s Mill—which all have direct access to ski resorts and Lake Tahoe beaches. Other communities like Gray’s Crossing and Old Greenwood are golf lovers' paradises with championship courses just a quick golf cart ride from your front door. There are also ski resort communities that offer unrivaled ski-in, ski-out access, so homeowners don’t have to sacrifice anything in North Lake Tahoe’s real estate market.
6. Sustainable Building is Increasingly Popular
Modular homes are becoming more and more popular for those tackling new developments within Tahoe’s pristine forestland. You can easily take a peek for yourself at the two most recent projects located at two of North Lake Tahoe’s ski resorts, both of which took a more progressive approach to conservation.
At Northstar California Resort, the newest village construction in over a decade, Village Walk Skyline, is using all prefabricated modular buildings. These are large four bedroom, three and a half bathroom, and nearly 3,000 square foot homes with luxury finishes throughout, asking around $2.3 million.
Over at Squaw Valley ski resort, the new Palisades development is also using modular construction on an enclave of 50 brand new luxury homes and townhomes just steps from the famous KT chairlift. Up in the gated community of Mountainside at Northstar, you’ll also find a handful of stunning mountain modern homes, all constructed using a prefab modular process.
