Lake Tahoe Neighborhood Highlight: Montgomery Estates

lake tahoe real estateThe Montgomery Estates neighborhood of South Lake Tahoe, CA is consistently one of the most sought after neighborhoods in all of South Lake Tahoe for many reasons.  Many of the homes in this subdivision are newer, well kept, and offer either mountain or lake views,  which have helped to maintain its high median home value that typically ranks in the top 3 for all of South Lake (usually just behind the Tahoe Keys and Heavenly Valley).  The nice part about Montgomery Estates is that it is centrally located and has a private feel but still close to the action.  It is considered technically to be in the county, but it’s right on the edge of the city as well.  Many of the homes border U.S. National Forest Service land.

The Area

Montgomery Estates covers both sides of Pioneer Trail between Golden Bear Trail and Cold Creek.  Pioneer Trail was once the wagon train road through the region as people headed west to find gold, and then back again to get silver in Nevada. The Pony Express also used this route and the current elementary school, Sierra House, was once a way station for travelers. There is one fire station in Montgomery Estates.  There are no commercial properties.  There was once Lake Christopher but it has been put back into its natural state and is now a meandering creek.  Two creeks join together just outside this neighborhood and eventually make their way into Lake Tahoe. There are hiking and mountain biking trails which can also be used to snow shoe and cross country ski.
