Lake Tahoe (North and West Shore)


Lake Tahoe, a crystal clear, aqua blue lake in the snowy Sierra Nevadas, entices athletes, adventurers and travelers to its easy-going, pine scented air and year-around activities.   Lake Tahoe is the nation’s largest alpine lake, and the second in depth (behind Crater Lake in Oregon).  Tahoe straddles both California and Nevada.  Lake Tahoe real estate mentioned on this website is situated in clusters of small towns in and around the North and West shores of Lake Tahoe, located on the California side of the Lake.

You’re going to find some of the state’s most iconic tourism on Lake Tahoe, such as the 1929 Nordic-style mansion Vikingsholm, and the highly photographed, partly-submerged granite boulders of Sand Harbor (my family’s favorite beach). Many of the beaches here on Lake Tahoe are on a shallow sand bar, and have soft, grainy sand, or small polished pebbles.

The recreation you’ll find in the Lake Tahoe basin is unmatched.  Where to begin?  Let me tell you what my favorites are: boating, golf, hiking, biking, (I love both mountain biking and road biking) and skiing.  You’ll be hard-pressed to find a more beautiful background for adventure than here in Tahoe.

Let’s get to the real estate; North Lake Tahoe real estate begins at about $500,000 for small cabins or condos (not on the water) and can well exceed $10,000,000 for larger lakefront estates.  Lake Tahoe real estate offers something for everyone, from timeless Tahoe style cabins to contemporary lakefront estates, you are sure to find the perfect home.  I’d love to help you do that.
