This inviting three-bedroom, two-and-a-half-bath townhouse features unobstructed views of Mount Rose and Slide Mountain from all of its bedrooms and is one of the few homes in the entire Esplanade community that abuts South Reno's lovely 1,900-acre wildlife preserve. Indeed, this sunfilled townhouse is one of three in the only stand-alone building at Esplanade, making it all the more special. Sadly, nearly all of the other townhouses have tiny concrete backyards that abut one another, offering no privacy let alone sweeping views of the wetlands and the peaks that flank it.
If you appreciate privacy and nature, this townhouse is for you. Ducks frequent the preserve only 30 feet from the backyard, and although they are more difficult to spot, beaver families are constantly improving their homes amid the cattails that jut from the preserve, its water constantly supplied by snowmelt. Canada geese are plentiful in Reno, but the preserve is the only place in town that one can find white swans. The birds migrate between the preserve and the Pyramid Lake, the lower terminus of the Truckee River (the upper terminus being Lake Tahoe).
The interior is equally attrative. Amenities include: top-of-the-line Whirlpool appliances, among them family-size Duet washer and dryer in a dedicated laundry room; double-pane windows to keep street noise and energy bills down; and double-thick walls so you never hear the neighbors.
Carpet throughout the living spaces with stain-free vinyl flooring in the kitchen and bathrooms. Gas fireplace in the living room beside a built-in entertainment center. The ample kitchen includes a gas stove, refrigerator with through-the-door filtered water and ice dispensers, microwave and dishwasher.
The spacious master bedroom easily accommodates a king-size bed and nightstands, and boasts a walk-in closet, a bathroom with deep soaking tub, a separate shower, and his-and-her sinks. The fenced and landscaped backyard with a lovely paver patio is ringed by desert plants that are on a drip system so you don?t have to water.
The extra-large garage features lots of built-in shelving for storage, and the short driveway is flat so you never have to worry about sliding on those rare icy Reno mornings. Plus, guests have access to a nearby community pool and hot tub from Memorial Day to Labor Day.
Although overlooking a federally protected wetland and cow-studded Damonte Ranch, this property is conveniently close to U.S. Route 395, the nearest Starbucks is but a block away; numerous choice restaurants, wine bars and the city's only Whole Foods are within a few minutes' drive; and Mt. Rose Ski Resort, Incline Village and Lake Tahoe are a mere half-hour away. View VIRTUAL TOUR
