Sugar Pine Estate is a small, little-known neighborhood in Truckee….if you don’t live here, you most likely don’t know where it is.
It reflects the pioneering spirit of the locals here: No gates or guards, lots of space and privacy, an “off-the-grid” feel of full-time welcoming neighbors who have known each other for years, and some of the most coveted acreage in the area boasting no fees or neighborhood associations. Something Old Greenwood, Gray’s Crossing, Martis Camp and Lahontan cannot offer.
With backdoor access to acres of national forest and some of the best hiking, biking cross-country skiing, snowshoeing and running trails Truckee has to offer, you can’t go wrong having a home here. From your house, you can mountain bike on Emigrant trail all the way to Stampede, Boca reservoir. Just pack your kayaks and you will be on Prosser Lake in less than 10 minutes.
Living in this neighborhood is so close, yet so far from the norm. 10 minutes to historical downtown Truckee, shopping, direct access to Highway 80 - yet your property is secluded and quiet. There’s no need for curtains because you can’t see your neighbor’s house, but they might come ring your doorbell for a visit, or your kids will play together. It is the kind of neighborhood people dream of raising a family in – or retiring to. Also if you want to keep horses, there are plenty of room to have your horse corral on these large acreage parcel.
Demographics of the neighborhood vary and add to the charm. There are several retired couples. There are many young families who have purchased in the last year. There are established families who have raised their children here. There are a few second homes.
Just off Highway 89 across from Prosser Estates, Stony Creek Court leads to a haven of homes on 5 and 10 acre lots. If Every few years, a home comes up for sale here; so if you love the neighborhood, you should get it when you have a chance.
Come join us in this special place, a haven in Truckee.
