A famous chateau on the North Shore of Lake Tahoe, in Incline Village, Nevada, known as The Castle on Lake Tahoe, was recently named “The Most Romantic Home For Sale in America” by The Top Ten Real Estate Deals and CNBC.com.
Cloaked in mystery and privacy behind its fanciful gates for decades, one of Tahoe’s dreamiest properties is open for public viewing via its virtual tour at www.inclinecastle.com. Qualified individuals may tour this spectacular property by calling 775-232-0794.
And romantic this property is, both in its history and its execution. Custom-designed and built by the real estate investor who still owns it, the 9,000-square-foot Castle was inspired by some of the great castles of Europe, but its own custom touches embrace the amenities and conveniences of one of the most affluent – and breathtakingly lovely – spots in the United States.
Nestled on 1.7 acres of woodland with maintained gardens and a freshwater stream, The Castle’s gardens span its 180 feet of private frontage on Lake Tahoe, the second largest alpine lake in the world. A private buoy, boat launch, and pier with motorized boat and watercraft lifts provide exclusive access to the pristine Lake and its variety of aquatic activities.
Tahoe’s one-of-a-kind Castle is offered for sale at a cool $22.8 million – along side the highly valued homes in the area that are tax advantaged on the Nevada side of Lake Tahoe – it stands resolutely in defiance of general market trends. “While sales of homes in general around the country are in decline, the choicest properties on the Nevada side of the Lake have timeless value and are still in demand,” says a spokesperson for The Creek Trust, the group that is handling the sale, adding that owners in the area are asking realistic prices, are receptive to offers and that sale prices are generally falling within 5-15% of asking prices.
Most buyers are attracted to Lake Tahoe for its year-round recreational activities and the substantial tax benefits of residing or doing business in Nevada. With all that Nevada has to offer to embrace businesses, many migrate from California.
It has often been said that one’s home is his (or her) castle. While there are very few cases in which this is literally true, it can be more than a metaphor for some fortunate buyer or elite group of purchasers. For the rest of us…well, at least there’s the virtual tour.
