LAKE TAHOE LIVING: OCTOBER 2020
The busy summer visitor season might be winding down but that does not mean that Incline Village real estate sales activity has slowed as we get deeper into the year. During the past week, 14 properties have gone into escrow continuing the steady pace of sales activity that we have seen all summer. With prices still trending upward in most parts of our community, buyers who procrastinate will find themselves missing out on the best values on the North Shore of Lake Tahoe.
28 properties closed escrow this past week ranging from a 480 sq. ft. Toepa unit for $269,000 to a $6,350,000 home on the lakefront in Crystal Bay. It has been tough for buyers in today’s market, with a lot of buyer competition. Inventory levels are down nearly 50% from this time last year…
We are starting to see more restrictions being lifted from COVID-19 around our local community. However, for this month, I’m going to give you a few great “out of town” restaurant options outside of Incline Village and Crystal Bay.
Wolfdale’s (Tahoe City) – Chef-Owner Douglas Dale, has developed ‘Cuisine Unique’ since day one. A fusion of Asian and European style influences paired with the spirit of California. The menus change frequently to achieve the challenge of ‘Fresh Food, Prepared Simply’. Wolfdale’s transforms food into cuisine and meals into memories all while taking pride in accommodating all of our guests’ needs (fun fact: our menu is primarily gluten free).
Pianeta Ristorante (Truckee) – We are a cozy restaurant located in the heart of historic downtown Truckee, specializing in creating delicious Italian foods, homemade pastas, and stellar dining service since 1998. We feature an extensive menu with nightly specials inspired by the delicious cuisine of Northern Italy. We also feature an impressive rotating wine list with numerous options from California and Italy, and a full bar featuring classic cocktails and aperitifs. We are defined by our welcoming friendly staff, remarkable consistent food, and warm eclectic old world ambiance.
Evan’s American Gourmet Cafe (South Lake Tahoe) – Evan and Candice have lived in beautiful South Lake Tahoe, California for 40 years. Between the two of them they have a combined total of 75 years in the restaurant business. Evan has been a wine buyer since 1978, a professional wine judge since the late eighties (credentialed by UC Davis) and has judged the California State Fair since 2001. In the early days of the restaurant, he even worked as the Chef! Candice was by his side in the kitchen daily, preparing many of our signature desserts from scratch. Since 2009, Chef Oscar has been providing our guests with outstanding food from every position in the kitchen. He started his employment with us working in the pantry but quickly moved up through the ranks to Sous Chef, a position he held for 4 years. We are now proud to have him as the Head Chef here at Evan’s. Oscar’s talent for creating flavorful and beautifully presented dishes is unmatched!
