869 Lakeshore Boulevard recently sold for $11,850,000 with Sierra Sotheby’s International Realty Representing both Buyer and Seller.
This 10,000 sq foot Chateau style home set on .82 of an acre with 100′ of shoreline was built in 1997 by former owner of the Cal Neva Stateline Casino Chuck Bluth, it is one of Incline Village’s loveliest estates. Sold February 11, 2013. Jean Merklebach of SIR Zephyr Cove represented the Seller and Lexi Cerretti of SIR Incline Village represented the Buyer.
“I really scoured the lakefront market for my Buyers, even locating three Lakefront homes not on the market to show the buyers. This was the only home of this scale and quality available under $18 Million in Incline Village or Crystal Bay, Nevada.” explains Lexi Cerretti. “With only a limited amount of lakefront property on the Nevada side of Lake Tahoe, it is hard to find prime lots that are sandy beachfront or have deep water access with a pier.” This 10,000 sq. ft. home is on .82 of an acre, beautifully landscaped with a raised sandy beach and potential to build a shared pier with the neighbors.
This is the 4th lakefront home sale since the beginning of December in Incline Village and Crystal Bay. In comparison, there were only 5 lakefront home sales for the entire year in 2012 in this market. 4 Incline Village lakefront home sales since Dec. 1
In the past 10 years, there have been only 13 reported $10 Million+ home sales in Incline Village and Crystal Bay, NV (12 of them lakefronts). 3 of these sales have occurred in the past 2 months.
