Real Estate Pick of the Week – 10109 Sage Brush Court

10109 Sage Brush Court
$975,000
MLS# 20122488

Schaffer’s Mill, formerly known as Timilick, is doing something special in their gated community.  The new developer’s commitment to construct a master plan of amenities, which complement the fabulous Johnny Miller golf course, has brought this development to life.  With the pool and fitness facility grand opening this past July, and phase 2 of the (affordable) Townhomes taking reservations, Schaffer’s is a wise investment choice at the moment.  As the developer continues to build out the wide array of additional upscale amenities and homes, I believe values will soar in Schaffer’s Mill, possibly taking a path separate from the general climbing real estate market in Lake Tahoe.

A wonderful opportunity to purchase a brand new Townhome at Schaffer’s Mill is at 10109 Sage Brush Court.  Located within walking distance of the Clubhouse & Sports Village, this sun-drenched home has the highest quality in features, and is the perfect family retreat.  Offered fully furnished by Alder and Tweed, at $975,000 this is a great value for a 3 bedroom, 2.5 bath home.  Your family can spread out comfortably throughout the 2040 sq.ft., while enjoying views that overlook the golf course and stunning mountain vistas.  The open, flowing floor-plan cater to family time with a large great room and kitchen for sharing time together and creating lasting memories. Mountain modern finishes include hardwood plank flooring, a sleek kitchen with glass tile accents and stainless appliances, slab counters, and a stacked stone fireplace.  Like any well designed home in Tahoe, the outdoors flow right into the great room. Just step out onto your patio for a marshmallow-roasting session during any Tahoe season.

The best thing about 10109 Sage Brush Court is the super close proximity to the “Clubhouse Campus.” Within steps from the home is the new pool and clubhouse.  Steps from that amenity will be a 5 star restaurant, tennis pavilion, kid’s camp, golf practice facility, and more.  There is a community system of trails for walking or cross country skiing, as well as Tahoe National Forest access points.  Practice your fly casting on a pond designated for anglers.  Schaffer’s has a shuttle that delivers your family to Northstar, and offers a “Base Camp” in the Village for it’s owners.  That’s awesome.  Plus, they have a Schaffer’s Mill Yacht Club on Lake Tahoe, with a yacht available for all members to use!  Wrap this all up under really affordable HOA fees: $2,400 year for social membership, and $7,800 year for golf.

In my opinion, there is something to be said for seeing the greater vision of a community and buying into it during the initial phases.  This is not an over the top community, but rather a high-end gated community with the essentials of Tahoe recreation totally covered.  Schaffer’s Mill offers a great Truckee location adjacent to Martis Camp and Lahontan, and is sure to please all generations of the family, and extended family too!
