Lake Tahoe has long been a destination for people around the country seeking an active outdoor lifestyle, whether it’s a charming ski cabin in Tahoe Donner or an opulent lakefront estate. Over the past decade, as Silicon Valley’s technology base exploded, and Lake Tahoe gained national repute as one of the country’s best alpine getaways, there has been an increasing demand for luxury living options in the Basin. This trend was even noted by Forbes, in their article, “Why the Wealthy Are Moving to Lake Tahoe.”
The term “luxury lifestyle” can mean different things to different people. For some, it means proximity to a year-round outdoor paradise. For some, it means well-crafted homes filled with high-end details. For others, it means easy access to fantastic shopping, dining, and services.
Today, owning luxury real estate in Lake Tahoe means access to desirable amenities such as golf courses, beach access, ski lift access, turnkey service, on-site dining and concierge, and more. All this in addition to the stunning natural landscape that makes Lake Tahoe such a wonderful place to live, work, and play. In Lake Tahoe, experiencing a “luxury lifestyle” means having it all!

Nine 47 Tahoe
Development of Nine 47 Lake Tahoe is scheduled to break ground in Spring 2023 in the highly coveted enclave of Incline Village, Nevada. Historically home to some of North Lake Tahoe’s most exclusive residences, Incline Village offers unique amenities for residents, including three private beaches, a boat ramp, an award-winning golf course, and a community-owned ski resort. Not to mention the substantial tax benefits that come with establishing a Nevada Residency; residents do not pay state personal income, business income, or inheritance tax.
Nine 47 Tahoe will consist of 40 mountain modern luxury condominiums, starting at $2.5M per unit. Residences will feature direct-access elevators, reserved garage parking, stunning courtyards, and a rooftop deck. Residences include two, three, and four bedrooms ranging from 1,525 to 4,171 square feet with attractive furniture packages for the ultimate turnkey luxury home.
Waldorf Astoria Lake Tahoe
The Waldorf Astoria brand has long been associated with opulence and world-class accommodations. Breaking ground in early 2023, Waldorf Astoria Lake Tahoe Resort and Residences at Incline Village/Crystal Bay will offer residents an incredible new option for enjoying the beauty of Lake Tahoe in true luxury.
Plans for a 15-acre resort set in the heart of the Sierra Nevada will offer guests and residents incredible views of Crystal Bay, access to a ski-in/ski-out mountain club in Northstar Village, and a 3-acre lakeside beach club. The mixed-use development will introduce 76 guest rooms and 61 best-in-class Waldorf Astoria branded residences. Construction is scheduled to be completed by 2027. Managed by Hilton, Waldorf Astoria Lake Tahoe will mark the brand’s first property in the Lake Tahoe region.
The new development will replace the former Tahoe Biltmore Hotel & Casino. Located along SR-28 since 1946, the Biltmore permanently closed in Spring 2022. The Revitalize Tahoe Biltmore project, spearheaded by EKN Development, will focus on creating an eco-conscious luxury resort and community space that will breathe new life into Crystal Bay. Asbestos abatement for the Tahoe Biltmore will be completed during the summer of 2023, followed by the demolition of the property’s cottages, scheduled to start shortly after. Demolishing of the Tahoe Biltmore Casino and Hotel building will begin upon abatement completion, with demolition expected to be completed by the end of 2023 in preparation for the 2024 construction season.
