Second Home Spotlight: Martis Camp at Lake Tahoe

No matter the season, there’s always something to do at Martis Camp, a private gated community situated on 2,177 acres between Truckee, California, and North Lake Tahoe in the Martis Valley. In winter, you can hit the slopes—the property offers private ski access via the Martis Camp Express. And in summer, try the Tom Fazio 18-hole golf course. There are also 26 miles of trails, a tennis pavilion, a fishing lake, and an all-purpose venue called the Family Barn, where residents can bowl, watch movies, play indoor basketball, attend concerts, and more. These amenities must be paying off because home buyers have been scooping up property. Martis Camp just announced more than 90 property sales in 2011 totaling $90.2 million. Since sales launched in 2006, 50 homes have been completed, 82 are under construction, and 68 are in the design process. Homesites begin in the $500,000s, and custom homes start at $1,995,000.
