Homes for Sale in South Lake Tahoe Neighborhood: Black Bart


Black Bart homes for saleThe Area

The Black Bart neighborhood in South Lake Tahoe, CA is located between the Sierra Tract neighborhood and Pioneer Trail which offers this neighborhood easy access to both of the South Shore’s major roads, Pioneer Trail and Lake Tahoe Blvd (Hwy 50). Black Bart is a very small area and has less than 200 homes that are nestled along the Trout Creek Meadow. On average, these homes feature three bedrooms, two baths and 1,220 square feet of living space. However throughout the years, many larger and newer homes have been constructed to take advantage of the stunning mountain and meadow views this area has to offer. Many of the lots within Black Bart are also bigger than the average lots found throughout South Lake Tahoe, providing that extra privacy Tahoe is known to have.

The beauty of the area is enhanced by the adjacent Trout Creek meadows which contain what used to be Lake Christopher.  The lake was recently reformed to follow the creek’s original path. These meadows are vital to Lake Tahoe’s clarity as they are major tributaries to the lake. They are filled with wildlife such as coyote families, raccoon’s, bears, trout, birds and wildflowers. Taking a tranquil walk here will remind you of why you choose to be in Lake Tahoe.

Why live here?

Black Bart is near numerous restaurants, shopping and public transportation and government facilities including the Lake Tahoe Community College, the South Tahoe Public Utility District, and the US Forestry Lake Tahoe Basin Management Unit. Another popular benefit of the Black Bart neighborhood is the nearby Sierra House Elementary School which has consistently received high achievement awards. If you are looking at purchasing real estate in South Lake Tahoe, make sure that you include the Black Bart area in your search. If you can find a house for sale on the meadow or if you are a first time home buyer looking for a starter home or a great deal on a foreclosure for sale in South Lake Tahoe, this is a great area.

The History

John Calhoun Johnson blazed a road from Placerville into Lake Tahoe that took travelers onto Genoa and the Carson Valley in 1852.  This road was used by wagon trains and the Pony Express so as a result, businesses offering support of those travelers starting popping up (food, lodging, supplies, etc.).  Homes started being built in the Black Bart neighborhood to house those that moved to Lake Tahoe in the 19th century, but as you can see, the homes that now exist are much newer.
