Mountainside at Northstar, Lake Tahoe’s exclusive ski-in/ski-out residential community located on-mountain between The Ritz-Carlton, Lake Tahoe and The Village at Northstar, recently announced a long-term investment plan to introduce new amenities, personalized services, unique programming and luxury real estate opportunities for the adventure-driven family. This fall/winter season, the premier four-season community will embark on a pursuit to connect homeowners with elevated outdoor experiences— from a Zen Cube perched amongst the trees to a team of expert mountain concierges taking adventure beyond the imagination. Launched this summer, the three-year investment plan seeks to fulfill a niche market’s call for the seamless combination of authenticity, connection and content, leading with the introduction of new facilities, expert-guided amenities and real estate inventory, including:

Tree House: Completed July 2015, Tree House serves as the new central hub for outdoor adventure enthusiasts with a team of concierge outfitters who offer owners of Mountainside access to all that Tahoe offers. In addition, the Mountainside base camp is the community gathering place, where owners take advantage of a fitness facility, game room, outdoor pool, dining area, lounge and outdoor sport court.
Tree House Outfitters: The on-staff expert mountain concierges provide the best combination of specialized knowledge and local connections to offer owners an all-access, insider experience of everything Tahoe.
Rendezvous Experience: An elevated outdoor experience of the environment, featuring architecturally stunning huts suspended on platforms amongst the trees. Residents will enjoy exclusive gatherings, including outdoor yoga pads, an outdoor amphitheater, fireside chat series, play structures curated for both children and adults, or simply a place to recharge after a day on the mountain. The unique glamping experience is set to be open in 2016.
Mountainside Trail System: A marked trail system of 40 plus miles that connects Mountainside owners with The Ritz-Carlton, The Village at Northstar, Mountainside’s Rendezvous experience, Tompkins Memorial Trail and Lake Tahoe Rim Trail. Capitalizing on its seamless connection to untouched nature, the fence-free community will offer multiple trail systems clearly marked hikes and snowshoe adventures by winter 2015.
The Zen Cube: The community’s “creative think-tank” offering more than 3,000 sq. ft. of gathering space nestled amongst the trees, with floor-to-ceiling glass windows boasting views of the untouched mountain setting. A truly unique, social experience, the project offers forward-thinking residents the opportunity to create and facilitate limitless programming that aligns entirely with their desire and vision.
Mountainside Living: New luxury custom mountain homes and mountain-contemporary residences and townhomes, all boasting direct access to the hiking trails and ski runs of Northstar.

In addition to new neighborhood amenities, Mountainside at Northstar is also in the midst of introducing cutting-edge luxury real estate. Designed by San Francisco-based BCJ Architects, construction is underway on the Stellar Collection, an enclave of new contemporary residences and townhomes geared toward the young, urban professionals seeking meaningful ways to invest their earnings and connect to authentic outdoor experiences. Developed to introduce a series of efficient, spatially powerful homes for this sophisticated market, Stellar Residences, six single-family homes and Stellar Townhomes, 11 townhomes, are contemporary and progressive in design. Residences and townhomes will become available winter 2015-2016.

New activity is also present in the M25 neighborhood of ski-in/ski-out custom homes, with the recent completion of the $9.3 million home and current construction of three additional homes. The one-of-akind gated enclave of 25 homesites offers buyers the opportunity for custom estate-sized homes, ranging from .5 to 1.5 acres.

All homes at Mountainside offer a connection to the mountain and nature – with direct front and back-door access to the ski runs and hiking trails of Northstar California. Activities are endless and include hiking, biking, skiing, cross country skiing, snow shoeing, tubing, shopping, dining, skating and more. Ownership at Mountainside also includes privileged access to the luxurious amenities of The Ritz-Carlton, Lake Tahoe, where residents can dine, après ski, après hike and utilize the spa with a two-year two-year family membership.

Several key neighborhood amenities, mountain improvements and real estate opportunities will be announced later this winter. For more information on Mountainside at Northstar, or to be kept up-to-date with sales release information, you may contact one of our knowledgeable team members.
