 This Month’s Least Expensive

The least expensive new listing that entered the market this month was 970 Los Angeles Avenue, listed for $275,000. Original family owners sadly say it is time to pass along their beloved Tahoe summer cabin to new owners. Located on a huge lot, nearly twice the size of others in the area, this quintessential cabin is within walking distance to Lake Tahoe beaches, meadow trails, shopping, Lakeview Commons, bike lanes and more. Open beam vaulted ceilings, lots of natural pine accents and wood floors add to the overall charm and ambiance. The lot has been arranged to have two separate areas. The first is an enclosed deck which leads to the bunk house and the other is a side yard featuring access for RV parking if desired. The bunk house is ideal for storing those Tahoe toys or can be used as additional sleeping in the summer. There is a utility room off of the kitchen which leads to the back patio area. This room has electric and water connection with the option to add a small washer/ dryer. One of the lowest prices to be found in area and time for a new family to create their own Tahoe memories .  This home was built in 1936 /  2 beds / 1 bath / 905 Sq Ft. Schedule a Showing!
