Owning a home on or near a lake means unlimited access to nature, along with endless recreational possibilities—in, on, and near the water. As summer reaches its peak (in the northern hemisphere, at least) a home by the water offers a break from the hustle and bustle of city living, and privacy other types of property can’t rival.
Part of the appeal of Lake Tahoe—the largest alpine lake in North America—is undoubtedly Incline Village. Named after the Great Incline Tramway built by loggers in 1878, the area receives an average of 300 days of sunshine a year and attracts visitors in all seasons. The Lake Tahoe Shakespeare Festival (at nearby Sand Harbor State Park) is a cultural must in summer, while winter is all about the Diamond Peak Ski Resort and Mount Rose Ski Tahoe. For a slice of Lake Tahoe, the property at 1196 Lakeshore Boulevard in the village has 80 feet of shoreline frontage.
“This home is a classic Tahoe lodge, perched above crystal-clear waters, with its own private lakefront cove and views over the Sierras,” says Claudia Thompson of Oliver Luxury Real Estate, the exclusive affiliate of Christie’s International Real Estate in Lake Tahoe.
The home is offered with a classic Chris-Craft 1959 Woody boat to make the most of what the water has to offer. “Incline Village is just 45 minutes from the Reno-Tahoe International Airport, within 20 minutes of the Truckee private aviation facility, and just 3 1/2 hours from the San Francisco Bay area, Silicon Valley, and California wine country,” Thompson adds.
