The Glenbrook and Uppaway Estates are two adjoining neighborhoods of Glenbrook, NV and are located in a beautiful enclave at the base of Spooner Summit along the east shores of fabulous Lake Tahoe. Uppaway and Glenbrook played a prominent role in Lake Tahoe’s rich and colorful history.
The Glenbrook neighborhood is one of the oldest neighborhoods in Lake Tahoe and considered a place where Tahoe history meets modern amenities of mountain living.
Glenbrook is a gated community adjacent to Uppaway Estates. In 1860, Captain Augustus Pray and associates settled in Glenbrook. They built a cabin, harvested wild hay, planted grain and vegetables. They were known to have harvested 60 bushels of wheat and 4 tons of hay per acre, while oats grew 7-8 feet high.. 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.
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. Located on the East shore (Nevada Side) of Lake Tahoe, Uppaway enjoys a mild winter climate that locals refer to as the “banana belt.” In addition to magnificent sunsets year around, the location is the perfect vantage point to watch winter storms roll across the lake. Lake access for boating, swimming, kayaking, or stand-up paddle boarding is only a short walk or golf cart ride from anywhere in the community. No need to pack the car and drive when you want to enjoy Lake Tahoe water activities. The community also has private tennis and horseshoe courts for residents.
