The Upper Kingsbury area rests atop Nevada’s “claim” to the world-renowned Heavenly Mountain Ski Resort. And we do mean literally atop. It’s down hill in either direction with Lake Tahoe to the East and the Carson Valley to the West. This area is made up of a blend of single family homes ranging from small ranchers, alpine chalets, cabins clear up to magnificent estates. Many sport spectacular views of Lake Tahoe or the magnificent Carson. Often when the Tahoe basin is covered in winter clouds or occasional fog, the Upper Kingsbury area is still basking in the sun.
There is also an expansive community of condominiums and townhomes located just steps from the numerous Nevada lodges of the Heavenly Ski Resort. Since Vail Resorts Management Company bought Heavenly, and invested many millions of dollars in new high-speed lifts and premiere facilities, Trip Advisor and Orbitz named Lake Tahoe the #1 Travel Destination in the U.S. and #25 Destination Worldwide. Heavenly also made the Top 10 Ski Resorts in USA list in 2009. It’s as close to a true “Ski In / Ski Out” neighborhood as one will find throughout the South & East Lake Tahoe areas. The average sold price for this area is $554,000.
Outdoor hikers, bikers and cross country skiers will relish in the opportunities provided within the Rim Trail area which is entered at the end of Andria Way. Also within the area is the George Brautovich Park which is located on Andria Way, just off the Kingsbury Grade. This cozy 5-acre community park includes a 1.5-acre junior soccer field, play area and horseshoe pits.
At the bottom of Kingsbury, on the Lake Tahoe side, are schools, parks and all varieties of grocery stores, pharmacies, a post office, banks, the major casinos, restaurants, the spectacular Edgewood Golf Course with 5 Star “lakeside” dining, ice skating, and Douglas County facilities. And by no means is one “too far” away from the action. All of the above facilities are found within ten minutes by car or the BlueGo Express bus service.
If one takes Kingsbury Grade toward the Carson Valley, they will find the historical Genoa community, the natural hot springs at Walley’s, championship golf courses and endless bike riding. Major shopping chains such as Home Depot, Costco and Target can also be easily accessed.
