Squaw Valley Real Estate: Life for the Truly Adventurous

Posted by GrangerGroup on April 27th, 2017

Squaw Valley, also known as Olympic Valley, is the premiere luxury living destination for true winter sports enthusiasts. It is one of the most consistently snow-filled areas of Lake Tahoe and has a rich history as a skier’s paradise. Luxury homes in the area move quickly on the market and it takes a connected and knowledgeable real estate agent to be able to find and win bids on these exclusive properties.

Squaw Valley’s legacy rests in the 1960 Winter Olympics when Squaw Valley Ski Resort became the host for the Winter Olympics (the first live-televised Winter Olympics). The area hosted each individual sport and is one of the largest ski resorts in the United States. The resort itself is slightly west of Lake Tahoe and has 3,600 skiable acres for ski enthusiasts and 43 lifts with 270+ ski trails. The Squaw Valley has snowy winters as well with 40+ feet of snowfall most of the winter. Snowboarders, snow shoe enthusiasts, and snow tubers can also find fun at the resort or on their own in their backyard.

During the summer, Squaw Valley turns into a musical yogi epicenter with yoga teachers leading workshops, classes, and seminars at the ski resort and musical acts coming in for local concerts and events. Squaw Valley also takes its fun loving spirit and channels it into a variety of events such as the Jazz and Funk Fest.

One of our favorite current listings in the Squaw Valley area is the listing at 522 Hidden Lake Court, Olympic Valley, CA 96146. This single family home is listed at ,995,000 and has 6 beds, 7 baths, and 6,631 square feet. The home itself features a unique exterior design built primarily out of stone with black lined tall windows and gorgeous roofing in a plank beam style. Custom made, this craftsman home is at the end of a private cul-de-sac and will provides its new owners with a private respite from the everyday.

Indoors, find multiple master bedrooms perfect for inviting couples and other families out to visit (or giving children plenty of space to add their own respective playrooms inside their bedrooms) and tall windows that take in the expansive forest view. A stone fireplace in the great room and an open concept yet winding floor plan lends the right kind of open ambiance while keeping a bit of separation between them. Many of the rooms on the second floor offer slanted ceilings, which lend an airy, open, and charmingly rustic feeling to the home.
