Real Estate Pick of the Week – 9072 Manzanita

9072 Manzanita
4 bed, 3.5 bath, 2,606 sf
MLS # 20140183

Most buyers are aware of the current lack of high quality, newer properties at the lake… especially 4 bedroom properties with drop dead lakeviews!  I don’t expect my listing pick of the week at 9072 Manzanita to last too long on the market.  This Rubicon Bay lakeview property is spectacular on all accounts, plus, it has beach access to an amazing and private white sand beach on the shores of the most pristine blue waters of Lake Tahoe. 

The home is a custom architectural design by award-winning Sandbox Design Studio, who are sought after and well respected in the all luxury communities throughout Tahoe including Martis Camp, Lahontan, Martis 25, and of course lakefronts on Tahoe. There is excellent craftsmanship in the construction, completed by Sherman Homes, who have been active builders on Tahoe’s west shore for years.

Just slide open the living room’s wall of windows to take in the panoramic views from Incline to south shore. This 4 bedroom home features skylights in the great room, a cozy freestanding two-sided gas fireplace, a chef’s kitchen, hydronic heat, a dumbwaiter, and a beautiful custom wood trim package throughout. This is a smart home, just walk in and press “Welcome” for the lights to turn on everywhere.  Thoughtful in floor plan flow and features, the home even has a wine room which so many owners are attempting to add to older properties these days.

The property is adjacent to 3 United States Forest Service lots for additional space and privacy.  Yet, nothing tops the Rubicon Bay Homeowner’s Association, with private beach access for just $325 year.  Here you will relax with your family, enjoying a pier and shared buoy field.  In the winter, you are just a few miles to Homewood Ski Resort, which is going through a full renovation in the near future, which is sure to enhance property values on the West Shore.  You can learn more about this redevelopment by JMA Ventures on Homewood’s website.

9072 Manzanita had been listed at $3.2M when it was new.  At $1,535,000, with all that this home offers, I see this listing as a great value on the west shore of Lake Tahoe.  The alternative is picking up a fixer-upper constructed in the 70’s, and attempting to convert it into all that this home is.
