Imagine waking up, preparing your favorite warm morning beverage, and walking out on the deck of your condo to enjoy the sunrise in one of the most beautiful alpine lake basins in the world. That is absolutely a reality with this condo. 


It has a large upper deck that was recently refinished and sealed. The deck is protected by a screen of large pine trees that allow you to enjoy peace and privacy as you start or end your day. And bar seating in the tiled kitchen gives you a comfortable place to enjoy your morning coffee on cooler mornings. 


Inside the house, tongue-and-groove vaulted pine ceilings enhance the spacious living area and pine-wrapped beams give this the true feel of a mountain cabin. Light pine hardwood floors throughout the lower level also brighten the space and upgraded windows allow the natural alpine light to pour in. 


The inclusion of skylights in the living room allows you to further take advantage of the ample sunlight in the Tahoe basin. Another skylight directly over the bed in the master bedroom makes it easy to enjoy the starry night sky from the comfort of your bed. The master bedroom also features a California king-sized bed with a full headboard and pine dresser that will remain with the condo.


When you sit down in your living room, you will be able to relax in front of the rock fireplace and enjoy your favorite sports or shows with the condo built-in TV wall unit. The large windows in the living room are also great for watching the snowfall gently outside while you enjoy the warmth emanating from your fireplace.  


Carpeted stairs lead up to the master loft where you will lay your head after a long day of kayaking, paddleboarding, or beach lounging on Lake Tahoe. There is also an armoire in the guest room included with the purchase of this condo.


The master bath and shower also feature a slate tile finish that provides a natural feel and long-lasting durability. A walk-in closet next to the master shower gives you plenty of space for your mountain wardrobe. Additionally, the light fixtures have recently been replaced and all cabinets and built-ins were re-painted. 


In the basement, this condo provides an abundance of space for a storage or workshop room. It has a built-in workbench area, which is unique for listings in this area. Most of the nearby units only have enough basement room for a small crawl space, so this is great if you need a dedicated workspace or easily accessible storage for all your recreation equipment. 


Because of its townhouse style, there are also no units above or below this condo. So you will not have to worry about being kept up by noisy neighbors or keeping your neighbors up when you do host company. 


This condo is also being upgraded with new siding and roofing so you will not have to worry about its ability to handle the Tahoe winters for years to come. And it gives you access to a wonderful number of Dollar Hill amenities, including tennis courts, a hot tub, and a heated pool (summer use only). 


The current asking price for this condo is $319,000, which makes it one of the most affordable condos in the Dollar Hill II development. It is located just five minutes from Tahoe City’s Commons Beach and 12 minutes from Kings Beach in the other direction. 


Additionally, this condo sits within easy biking or walking distance of the Tahoe Cross Country Ski Area. Known for offering a number of easy and challenging cross country trails in the winter, those trails also turn into the perfect setting for mountain biking during the spring, summer, and fall months. 

About The Dollar Hill II Condominium Development

Originally built in the 1970s, the Dollar Hill II community provides a bevy of amenities for homeowners. For starters, the Skylandia State Park and Beach serve as your local beach and is one of Tahoe’s less-known stretches of gentle, sand beach. But the Lake Forest Beach is also within a short distance of this specific condo development. 


You will also be able to enjoy access to the Lake Forest boat launch if you have a motorized watercraft that you want to take out on Tahoe. But within the community, you can enjoy tennis courts, a hot tub, a dog park, and the Dollar Hill clubhouse with sauna and showers. 


During the summers, you can also take advantage of the development’s heated pool, basketball hoop practice area, and volleyball court. The HOA fees in this development also cover a variety of community services, including track pickup, snow removal, exterior maintenance, ground maintenance, building insurance, liability insurance for common grounds, and professional management services.   

Why Live in Tahoe City

Tahoe City is the original destination city in Lake Tahoe. Some of the first summer and winter visitors arrived in Tahoe City via train car starting in the late 1800s. While you will no longer need a railroad or steamship to enjoy the magnificence of the largest alpine lake in North America, Tahoe City remains one of the lake’s most vibrant cities. 


In the summer months, you will be able to enjoy free weekly concerts at Commons Beach and a variety of casual and fine dining restaurants for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Some of our favorites include Jake’s On The Lake (for dinner), Rosie’s Cafe (for breakfast), and the Dam Café for lunch. 


Tahoe City is also the hub for outdoor recreation on the northwestern shore of the lake. It is the home to Truckee River Rafting and the iconic Truckee river float. Tahoe City Kayak is also nearby if you are looking for canoe, kayak, and paddleboard rental services. 


From Tahoe City, it is also easy to skirt down the west shore to explore less-developed recreation areas, including Emerald Bay State Park, D.L. Bliss State Park, and Sugar Pine Point State Park.
