The small neighborhoods of Glenbrook and Uppaway Estates are about 10 mi South of Incline Village, and about 12 mi North of South Lake Tahoe, California. They epitomize the qualities of a rural lakeshore community. Only 150 acres of Glenbrook’s 750 acres have been developed. Nearly 600 acres remain undisturbed, offering homeowners serenity as well as unique recreational opportunities. Their home owner’s association protects many of the area’s finest qualities for residents. The part in history that this area played in the development of Lake Tahoe is written in history books.

Uppaway Estates is a small private gated community of homes that are located on the former Fleishman Estate. The 44 acre lakefront property was purchased by Major Max C. Fleishman in the early 1930’s and served as his home for many years. The community now has 29 homes including the historic former home of Max and his wife Sarah. Uppaway, and the adjoining community of Glenbrook, played a prominent role in Lake Tahoe’s rich and colorful history.
After Major Max C. Fleishman had purchased this spectacular 44 acre lakefront estate he asked his wife, Sarah, if she wanted to build their new home on the lakeshore. She replied, “No, I want it up a way.” The house they built in 1936 remains. It has been painstakingly remodeled to reflect the original character and design. Sarah’s preference for the location of the home also remains as the name of the current community.
