I grew up in Lake Tahoe, North America’s largest mountain lake located in the Sierra Nevada Mountains. Over 2 million years old, the lake is also one of the deepest in the world and contains more mysteries than you could ever imagine.

One modern day mystery is the recent record-breaking real estate acquisitions of prime lakefront property in Tahoe City on the California side, and in Incline Village on the Nevada side. With the current popularity of land acquisitions by tech billionaires from nearby Silicon Valley, numerous estates are being listed with earth shattering prices starting at $35 million for 24 Hour Fitness founder Mark Mastrov’s Glenbrook lakefront estate, and upwards to $75 million for a Crystal Bay cliffside home with funicular.
