3135 West Lake Boulevard
4 bed, 4 bath, 2,236 sf
MLS # 20131378

As we reached record highs yesterday in Lake Tahoe, many Tahoe locals and visitors alike are turning to the lake for afternoon recreation.  Why not?  Who would think that in February you would see a paddle board mounted next to the snowboard on cars leaving the area’s resorts?  Yesterday, I spent the day showing lakeview properties, peering down upon glassy blue waters dotted with boats, kayaks, and avid paddlers.  As such, we are beginning to see an early spring pattern in real estate. Lake properties are coming on the market in February, instead of April.  Sales are steady at the lake, simultaneously with ski resort properties.  TMR has an off-market property listed that is super attractive and available at 3135 West Lake Boulevard, a split-lakefront offering a usable pier and buoys, even with drought lake levels. This bay is one of only a few on the lake that can brag about deep water with extremely low lake levels.

In the heart of the west shore, this Hurricane Bay lake house has been thoughtfully added on to over the years and transformed into a spacious lake retreat, while preserving the structural integrity and beauty of the original structure as featured in 1960’s magazines.  Adorned with a deep-water trex pier, 2 legal buoys, and over 70 feet of gated beach frontage, this home is being offered for $1,875,000!  Just a stroll away is Homewood Ski Resort, via the adjacent bike path.  This real estate opportunity will prove to be a solid Tahoe investment for under two million dollars, as the redevelopment that was recently approved in Homewood is exciting, and sure to bring additional prestige to owning on the west shore. 

The home itself is perched perfectly above the bay for dramatic lake views from every room and its expansive wrap-around deck.  The current owner has meticulously maintained and upgraded the home with Pella doors, a brand new hydronic furnace, recently painted exterior, and a newer roof.  The home features surround sound, a central vacuum, and plenty of thoughtful storage for your Tahoe toys.  The kitchen and baths have been tastefully updated with beautiful tile work.  With plenty of privacy, the bedrooms are spacious and feature high ceilings, 3 of which are en-suite. Each bedroom opens onto a lakeview deck to enjoy the morning sunrise. The interior features beautiful vertical redwood and double story windows.  A fabulous loft-suite overlooks the snow-capped mountain vistas, and doubles as a great family entertainment area.  Rustic, yet vintage-modern, the home can absorb large families and sleep up to 15 with ease. 

No form of real estate in Tahoe can compare to living ON the lake itself for lifestyle or prestige. Imagine life on the clear blue waters of Lake Tahoe.  For the fortunate, it is a reality. For the most fortunate, a lakefront property with legally recognized pier, buoys, or other boat moorings is the pinnacle of Lake Tahoe homeownership.  With half interest in a deep water pier, plus 2 legal buoys, this well kept and fully furnished home at 3135 West Lake Boulevard is a true value at $1,875,000.   What are the pier and buoys worth alone?
