For 20 fortunate few, Gondola Vista at South Lake Tahoe represents a lifetime achievement. Consider this: new-home construction in the Tahoe basin has been nearly nil for a decade. By owning one of these new, Tahoe-based luxury homes you become part of a very select, very rare group of people. Now let’s look at Gondola Vista by a few other numbers. Your walk to the golden shores of Lake Tahoe – 20 minutes. The soaring gondola ride to the top of Heavenly Resort – 20 minutes. Van Sickle State Park – roughly 20 paces from your back door. The pleasant stroll to the vibrancy of the South Lake Tahoe? You guessed it. 20 is indeed a special number.

The Gondola Vista Story

Gondola Vista was originally part of the 725 acres of land owned by local Rancher Jack Van Sickle. In the late 1990s, Jack sold 155 of those acres and donated the remainder, creating what is now Gondola Vista’s “backyard” — a 725-acre paradise of virtually untouched Tahoe magnificence called Van Sickle Bi-State Park.

In the early 2000s, locally owned Gondola Vista Development Company LLC purchased 3.43 of those exquisite acres. Once the plan to create Gondola Vista Estates was finalized, ownership of the land transferred to luxury builder A Level Above.

It’s a lofty name. For over 40 years, this luxury builder has lived up to its namesake, maintaining the kind of reputation required to sustain nearly half a century of success. And the kind of reputation worthy of creating one of the rarest real estate developments in South Lake Tahoe today — your Gondola Vista home.
