A unique feature about living in Lake County, California is actually owning property with lake front. It’s exciting for me to hand the keys over to a new home owner of lake front property because I know one of the things on their mind is to go for that first boat ride and come home to park the boat at their own boat dock. Water skiing, sailing, kayaking, fishing and moonlight cruises are just a few of the simple pleasures of living on the Clear Lake.
There are options and price ranges and things to know when it comes to searching for lakefront property in Lake County and I will be happy to assist you with your lakefront search. You can find everything from the simplest lakefront cabin or bungalow to luxury homes on large lakefront parcels. I recommend that you first come to the area and familiarize yourself with the various venues around the lake. Lower cost alternatives to living directly on the lake are properties in waterfront channels. Waterfront Channel properties will still provide you with access to the lake. Waterfront Channel properties can be found in areas like the Clearlake Keys located in Clearlake Oaks and in Lakeport there is Corinthian Bay, Lands End, Pier 1900 and Lakeport Lagoons. The City of Clearlake has a waterfront channel community called Highlands Harbor. The other thing to know is that if lakefront or channel front property is still beyond financial reach then you might consider another option. There are Home Owner Associations (HOAs) like the Riviera West, Riviera Heights that have marinas on the lake for home owners that live in those communities. More exclusive areas like Buckingham Park in Kelseyville and Paradise Cove in Lucerne also provide home owners with a place to launch boats and tie up for the day. Most of our lakefront communities have public boat launch facilities that are free to the public.
You can start searching for lake front property from my website. I offer open access to the multiple listings in Lake County. To start searching just click on the Property Search tab on my home page. Select the county, the price range and be sure to check the box that says waterfront then scroll down and click on the pull down menu that says lot features. Look for a description under lot features that says “On Lake Front”. Once you have done this you can initiate the search by clicking on the find properties button at the bottom of the page. If you aren’t getting any results it may mean that you need to adjust the price range and try again.
