As a long-time architectural firm on Lake Tahoe’s Nevada Side, we’re excited to bring you up to date on Lake Tahoe’s newest mountain golf community that is a short 20 minute drive from our Nevada-based architecture and interior design offices in Incline Village, NV.
Let me introduce you to the Clear Creek Development that is seeing impressive interest from the West Coast, and around the country. And for those who are familiar with the new Clear Creek mountain golf community just over the hill from Lake Tahoe that comes as no surprise.
Picture if you will … the mountain setting and impressive amenities that come to those who live in the popular Martis Creek community in Truckee, CA … are now mirrored in the tax-friendly state of Nevada, with a nationally-acclaimed golf course designed by Ben Crenshaw and Bill Coore, PLUS a private beach house and pier on the edge of Lake Tahoe.

Just a quick glimpse at their website introduction and it’s hard not to want to pack up and head to Nevada …
“Clear Creek is on the eastern slope of the Carson Range, conveniently just about 20 minutes from both Incline Village and the ski slopes of Heavenly. Yet it is spectacularly unspoiled – 2,136 acres surrounded by the six million acres of the largest national forest in the lower 48. Your home will be a natural refuge … forever. Clear Creek is also reassuringly private – a private community and club since inception.”
TAX FRIENDLY NEVADA
In addition to offering some of the most spectacular settings for a home or vacation retreat, a golf course and private access to Lake Tahoe, Clear Creek touts the tax advantages that come with Nevada residency as one of its top selling points
There are two sides to every coin, as there are to Lake Tahoe: The California side features nearly the highest income tax rate in the country. The Nevada side, with its pristine eastern shore, is a natural wonderland with the equally wondrous advantages of a Nevada residency – no state income or inheritance tax. We’ll let you do the math.
At Borelli Architecture in Incline Village, NV we’re excited about the Clear Creek project and are very impressed at the developer’s mission and vision: “Each property represents our vision of sustainability – protected and preserved for future generations.“
One more thing, this is not just another golf and lake resort development at Lake Tahoe or in the state of Nevada, these folks are local and deeply involved and interested in preserving the land today, and in decades to come – as their website notes:
We are guided by an enduring respect for the land and a view of the natural world as a place to be shared not conquered.
Here’s a list of their ‘like-minded and spirited collaborators’ in preservation and sustainability:
- The Nature Conservancy
- The Tahoe Rim Trail Associates
- The Carson Valley Trail Association
- Legacy Land and Water
- US Fish & Wildlife Service
- Nevada Department of Forestry
- US Forest Service
We’re so impressed with what is happening in and around the Clear Creek home Development in Nevada that our Nevada-based architecture firm in Lake Tahoe welcomes every opportunity to take you on a personal tour, or connect you with the Clear Creek real estate team. Until then, take some time to view their website and then contact me when you are ready to see it for yourself!
