If you want to build a big house at Lake Tahoe you need, what the government calls, “land coverage”. Land coverage is part of the U.S. government’s environmental plan to protect Lake Tahoe via the Tahoe Regional Planning Agency (TRPA). Man-made structures such as homes, driveways, and tennis courts have been classified as disturbances on the soil within the Lake Tahoe Basin. Those disturbances are measured in variables of square footage with the TRPA providing the limits to how much of your land can be disturbed. Much of the value of 1721 Sawmill Road lies in the building capabilities or amount of land coverage available to you. Zoned R1 for single family residential, this 2.5 acre parcel offers 16,901 SF of type 1A coverage and 25,852 SF of type 6 coverage. For those seeking acreage in an out of town location you could not ask for a better residential building site. This gorgeous parcel sits adjacent to CA Conservancy and U.S. Forest Service land providing privacy, with beautiful mountain views.Showings are by appointment only.
