Sweetbriar is a condominium development that offers fractional ownership in each unit. Originally each unit was set-up for 1/6 ownership, which gives an owner eight (8) to nine (9) weeks a year of use depending on the rotation schedule. Fractional ownership is not the same thing as “Time Share Ownership”.
Fractional share ownership comes with each owner having their own Placer County Assessor number (APN#). Each share owner is responsible for their monthly HOA fees and their annual property taxes that come with each share.
Sweetbriar is technically a beachfront development, which means the public has a right to be out in front of the development on the public beach area that is between the lakefront units and the waterline of Lake Tahoe.
The Sweetbriar Condo development offers its owners a sandy beach area, and buoy access through the HOA group. Owners enjoy a small HOA group environment and a lower HOA fee structure than some of the other lakefront developments in the area.
Located close to Kings Beach on the North Lake Tahoe, the Sweetbriar condo development is close to the golf course, shopping, restaurants, Northstar Ski Resort, and the Nevada State line and all of the recreational activities the Lake Tahoe area has to offer.
