Whether one calls it Country Club Estates or Elk’s Club, they are referring to one of the neighborhoods in South Lake Tahoe benefitting from new construction, multiple easy access and ambience. Despite the name of the neighborhood, there are no HOA’s or country clubs. The name of the area refers to many of the streets being named after well-known golf courses.
The majority of the homes are located along sloping lots providing views of the Crystal Mountain range and the local favorite, Mt. Tallac.
During the “boom” years, the larger view lots drew attention to builders seeking to maximize the then current market trends. As a result, many of the homes found throughout the area were built after 2000, bringing the overall values up. Although the average and median home prices reported for 2009 were lower due to short sales and foreclosures, the Country Club Estates/ Elks Club neighborhood continues to maintain a higher than average home value. Along with the many newer, larger homes found throughout the Country Club/Elks Club neighborhood, one can also find smaller, older and very affordable homes.
