One of Martis Valley’s three private communities, Schaffer’s Mill mimics its sister neighborhoods in residential elegance and savvy land use, but has a unique natural touch that helps it stand out from the adjacent developments. Impeccably laid-out and forested, “Schaffer’s” offers its residents a more private, rural feel, despite being the youngest of the area’s communities. The golf course is secretly (maybe not anymore) heralded among Truckee residents as the area’s “must-play,” and for those who live here, its doglegs and serene challenges can be an everyday experience. Add in the easy access to Northstar, Martis Valley trails, the Truckee Airport, and the quickly growing Tahoe Expedition Academy outside its gates, and Shaffer’s Mill quickly becomes your most coveted home buying target. Homes for sale in Schaffer’s Mill start above $1 million.
