Property description

GREAT HOME FOR UNIVERSITY OF NEVADA VISITS and more! Our beautifully furnished family home is located just above the University campus on spectacularly scenic University Ridge. It is next to UNR and Rancho San Rafael Park and close to downtown Reno and only a minute to the city-encircling McCarran Blvd with relatively easy access to shopping, casinos and all freeways. Mackay Stadium, Lawlor Events Center, the Fleischmann Planetarium, the School of Medicine, the Nevada Historical Society and the Post Office are all only 3-5 minutes away.

Our 3-bedroom, 2-bath, 3-car garage home sits at the highest point on the ridge and comfortably accommodates 8 adults sleeping on 4 full-size beds with additional capacity for 2 - 4 more children or adults sleeping on sofas and/or inflatable queen-size beds. The master bedroom is large with 2 full-size beds with night stands and lamps plus sitting area with table & chairs. The walk-in closet is large with built-in shelving and mirrored double sliding doors. There are double sinks in the master bath with bathtub and shower. The home has a large living room, dining area with expandable table, family room with TV, DVD/VCR with film library and wireless internet connection. NOTE: PETS WILL BE CONSIDERED ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS WITH RESPECT TO: KIND, TYPE, SIZE, NUMBER, ETC.

The kitchen is modern with everything one would expect including pots, pans, plates, silverware, coffeemaker, toaster and condiments, etc. Plus, there is an island with additional storage and a large surface work area and a morning breakfast nook with expandable table. The laundry room includes washer & dryer, detergents, cleaning supplies, iron & ironing board and vacuum cleaner. There is a good supply of linens, towels, hand soap, toilet paper and other incidentals including an electric hair dryer.

The house location is private and quiet with a large flat fenced yard complete with orchard and a large patio furnished for entertainment and relaxation. A unique park is located a short walk from the house. In addition to a good assortment of playground equipment and basketball courts with restroom facilities, there is a large gazebo with picnic tables and barbecue.

The city/mountain/UNR views from the park are exceptional and it is a popular panoramic photo location both day and night. Also, a scenic walkway serpentines from the gazebo down to lower level playing fields. The walkway has fitness stops along the way complete with exercise equipment and instructions (see photos).

Our home is comfortable with many amenities and enjoys a special location that will help insure that your visit is special!
