Glenshire Neighborhood at Lake Tahoe
One of the things that makes the Glenshire/Devonshire community a great choice for buyers is that it is the most kid-friendly area in Lake Tahoe. It has its own school, parks, shopping center and lots of great areas for outdoor recreation.
They also call it the ‘banana-belt’ because it doesn’t get as much snow as other areas. The snow melts earlier in the year, which allows for a type of spring season that isn’t found elsewhere. Winter seems to turn to summer during the end of May in most parts of Lake Tahoe and Truckee.
The neighborhood is a quick 5 minute drive to downtown Truckee, where you can enjoy fine dining and many great shops. However, you will find a shopping center located in the heart of Glenshire. You can find two country stores and the Glenshire Pizza Co.
Glenshire is one of the last Lake Tahoe neighborhoods on the way to Reno from Lake Tahoe. It is a great choice for buyers who work in Reno, as it is only 25 miles away. Glenshire is also easily accessible from highway 80 for those who come from the Bay Area or Sacramento.
Glenshire Drive follows the Truckee River up a hill as you enter the area The centerpiece of the neighborhood is Glenshire Lake, and many homes offer lake views. It freezes during the winter and offers children the change to ice skate! This is part of the charm that makes this community so adorable.
Other amenities include a clubhouse, swimming pool, and tennis courts. Kids can enjoy a basketball court and a large playground with an area that is perfect for a barbeque, under a gazebo.
Some parcels are large and have equestrian access and barns. Cross country skiing, snowshoeing and hiking are literally right out your back door.
There are a few great hills where kids can sled and tube during winter. There is also a Legacy Trail bike path that leads right to Downtown Truckee. This is truly a charming neighborhood like a blast from the past of great childhood memories.
Neighborhoods within the Glenshire/Devonshire area include Cambridge Estates, Juniper Creek Ranch, Elkhorn Ridge, Juniper Hills, The Meadows and Buckhorn Ridge and Tahoe Boca Estates.
I recently listed a highly desirable, flat, and sunny residential lot, which is .28 acre and 12,197 SF. You are literally only a three minute walk to the elementary school through an alpine meadow with seasonal creek in the family oriented Glenshire/Devonshire community.
The lot boasts mature pines and aspens and is a perfect spot to build your Truckee dream home. It is affordably priced for entry level at $100,000. Hurry - it won't last! Learn More.
