About Fleur du Lac Estates Lake Tahoe
Fleur du Lac Estates is a private, 15-acre community located on the western shore of Lake Tahoe. This gorgeous lakefront property was originally a summer home of Henry J. Kaiser, a shipbuilder and industrialist of the early 20th century.
The original property was built as a Grand Mansion in the 1930’s and included many exquisitely crafted stone recreational buildings. It became the site of many lavish parties, hosting the rich and famous of the industrial era.
Since then, it has been transformed into a community of private residences, ranging from spacious condominiums to grand lakeside estates. Each boast stunning views of Lake Tahoe's crystal-clear waters and surrounding mountains.
The name "Fleur du Lac" translates to "flower of the lake" in French, reflecting the majestic craftsmanship, stone terraces and elegant surroundings. Indeed, the community is one of the most sought-after purchases for luxury-lakeftont buyers, and it is rare that offerings come onto the market.
Each residence comes with a private boat slip, access to a Yacht Club, Clubhouse, tennis courts, heated pool, fitness room, steam shower and year-round spa.
Many of the family’s original old stone buildings are still on the property, including the Boathouses that were featured in the Godfather II movie. This 1973 film put Fleur du Lac on the radar for many luxury buyers seeking a private, lakefront community. The meticulously maintained grounds add to the luxurious ambiance of owning a luxury lakefront estate at Lake Tahoe.
While Fleur du Lac is a private community, there are occasional opportunities for the public to experience its beauty. Some events, such as charity fundraisers or open houses, may provide access to portions of the property for a limited time. However, access is generally restricted to residents and their guests.
Overall, Fleur du Lac offers a unique and upscale living experience in one of the most picturesque locations on Lake Tahoe, combining history, natural beauty, and luxury living.
