Year Purchased: 2014
About the owner: We love to be outdoors, whether it be going for a trail run, hiking, camping, biking, swimming, downhill skiing or back country skiing.
Why the Owner Chose Tahoe City: We purchased this home so we could be in the middle of it all - right in Tahoe City, without the need to drive everywhere.
The Unique Benefits at this House: We love the fact that our house is so close to all that we love to do. There are hiking (in the spring/summer/fall) and skiing (in the winter) trails just at the end of our street, and top ski resorts just minutes away from our door. Not to mention gorgeous Lake Tahoe, the Truckee River and the bike path that starts steps from our door and runs along the river. The great part about our place is that you can walk right into town and go on many adventures- without even having to drive your car!
