Northstar Community Information
Buyers are drawn to the communities surrounding the Northstar California ski resort because of the year-round activities and close proximity to Truckee and interstate 80.
During the winter, Northstar provides skiing, snowboarding and the charming Village at Northstar, with an ice-skating rink located at its center. During summer, Northstar allows mountain bikers to use the gondola to bike the trails surrounding the mountain.
More than a decade ago, many of the communities and Village at Northstar were designed by the same developers who created Beaver Creek, Colorado. The Ritz Carlton opened during this re-development phase and the entire area was transformed into a luxury community. There are still many of the original and older homes located in Northstar:
This 6 bedroom, 5 bath home is currently listed at $1,675,000
In the central area of Northstar, homeowners can enjoy easy access to golf, swimming, mountain biking and skiing.
Like Beaver Creek, the development of the area was centered around the Village with its shops and restaurants. There are currently a few Northstar Village townhomes on the market. These condos are located above the retail shops and promenade.
For example, this top-floor, luxury residence is currently listed at $1,299,000
Many of the communities in Northstar offer ski in/ski out access. One of the most prestigious areas to live in Northstar California is within the actual Ritz-Carlton five star resort. You can check the ski conditions right from your bedroom window, while the concierge service can prepare your skis. Return from a day of skiing enjoying the many restaurants, spa and apres ski events. Or, simply order room service.
This top-floor, 4 bedroom and 3.5 bath unit is currently available at $2,999,000
Within Mountainside at Northstar, you will find many exquisite custom homes and townhomes. This ski in/ski out community boats a pool, clubhouse, fitness center and sport court.

Surrounding the Northstar area are three other luxury communities with their own high-end amenities.
Lahontan was one of the first luxury, golf communities to develop within the Martis Creek basin. Its Tom Weiskopf designed championship golf course is central to an architecturally stunning array of luxury homes.
This 4 bedroom, 6 bath home is currently available at $4,975,000
Martis Camp is located just beyond Lahontan and is slightly newer and is known for its incredible amenities. Along with the Tom Fazio designed golf course, there is a Family Barn boasting bowling, basketball and art programs.
This luxurious 6 bedroom, 7 bath residence is listed at $11,995,000
Across from Lahontan, is Schaffer’s Mill, another luxury, golf community. In 2011, this neighborhood was called Timilick. It developed as a 475-acre, 400 home-site gated community with a private golf club. It was renamed Schaffer’s Mill after the ‘father of Truckee’ George Schaffer.
The region encompassing Lahontan, Martis Camp and Schaffer’s Mill was the old Martis Valley area, home to George Schaffer’s sawmill.
This 4 bedroom, 4 bath luxury residence is available at $2,549,000
