When buyers are shopping for a property at Lake Tahoe they have many decisions to make. While there is every type of property imaginable from rustic cabins and tiny condos up to palatial estates, the rarest of all breeds is the Panoramic Lakeview. Over the years, architects and developers have strived to maximize lots with panoramic lake views since there are so few.
Our local MLS categorizes the various types of lake views as follows: Peek Lake, Filtered Lake View, Lakeview and Panoramic Lakeview. Only a small percentage of all lake view properties qualify as a Panoramic Lake view, and the majority are clustered into just a handful of subdivisions. You don’t have to go too far from the center of Incline Village to find condos and homes with spectacular views of Lake Tahoe. From the Bitterbrush condos near the Diamond Peak Ski Area, which start in the high 300s, to homes on the East Slope ranging up to $10 million, the variety is almost endless.
The best lake views will generally be found on lots that have some type of a slope. While it’s really nice to have a level lot in the Lakeview subdivision so you can toss a ball around with the kids and walk to the beach, the lack of slope combined with the tall trees will likely block most or all of your view. So, there will almost always be a trade-off between having a Panoramic Lakeview and a lot where you can play volleyball.
