Real Estate Pick of the Week – 691 Pretoria

691 Pretoria – Agate Bay

In the heart of Agate Bay at the lake is a steal for the right Tahoe family.  I am surprised that this 2368 sq. ft. home is still on the market after 192 days, a point at which you may question “why?”  Well, at $599,000, I will tell you that it is only just a matter of when!  Many buyers in Agate Bay focus their search on properties that contain a Sun Club Membership, which this property does not have or need, causing this listing to be slightly overlooked. Let me explain why.

Location. This home is just a few blocks from Patton Beach, the one and only dog-friendly beach on the North Shore. In minutes you can walk to this beach, Garwoods, Sierra Boat Company, CB’s Pizza, and The Old Post Office Café.  Plus, this property is located across from Tahoe National Forest Lands with immediate access to expansive trail systems which you and the family dog will appreciate.  Just a 10 minute drive to Tahoe City and Casino nightlife, or 15 minutes to Northstar, this central location at the lake can’t be beat.  Additionally, this location is a very desirable vacation rental area for all seasons.

Features. Light and bright, the soaring ceilings and clear-cut redwood vertical interior are beautiful. There are 3 spacious bedrooms and plenty of loft space for extra sleeping. The master suite is massive and features a sauna and vintage bathroom with sunken tub. 4 decks allow you to follow the sun and finish the day dining in the glow of a Tahoe sunset in a dedicated dining area.  Relax après ski by the cozy gas-started fireplace.

Condition and extras. This home has been lovingly cared for with just one owner. Extra bonus and value is that the lot is a DOUBLE lot that is like a park setting, 60% larger than neighboring properties! The exterior has been newly painted, the roof was new about ten years ago. There is irrigation to the natural landscaping.  Features include a central vacuum system, alarm, new furnace, and some appliances. This home is turn-key, and over time, with some updating, has great appreciation potential with all of the square footage.

Don’t let this home pass you by, it will only be on the market through the end of December.
