Unique ranch home built with that "straight out of the old west" flair and attention to every detail. This home has a wonderful open floor plan with every amenity and comfort. Every room is oriented to take advantage of both indoor and outdoor views. Secluded and nestled in the pines with incredible views, lush pasture, pond and plenty of water, this ranch with its farmhouse is reminiscent of the old Bonanza! In fact, that's where the 4 stall barn came from! The home has gorgeous pine and slate floors, huge hand-hewn beams and a massive rock fireplace! Artistic detail flows beautifully through all the living areas and kitchen. The master bedroom with its luxurious bathroom and sauna opens to a sunroom and deck with a hot tub and forever views of the pond and pastures. Uniquely designed with room for family and friends there is a big loft with guest room and office as well as an apartment over the garage. Two large decks and a patio provide relaxation space to enjoy the views and serenity. This gorgeous setting is ready for horses or other livestock and is only an easy 30 minutes from Reno! Property Highlights: • This picturesque 75+ acres has water galore with the deep year round spring fed pond and possibly another spring source. The soil, now in native grasses, seems to be such that a permanent pasture could be developed to graze a few head of cattle or other livestock. Known to be drought-proof, this is what attracted the current owners. • Very secluded and private yet with easy year-round access and gorgeous views in every direction! • Unique ranch home built with that "straight out of the old west" flair and attention to every detail. • Wonderful open floor plan with every amenity and comfort. Every room is oriented to take advantage of both indoor and outdoor views. • Whether you first notice the massive rock fireplace, the incredible 200-year-old beams, antique hand-hewn pine and Nairobi slate floors, the passive solar comfort or the magnificent views from the living area is a tossup. • The master suite enjoys an incredible bathroom complete with a genuine redwood sauna as well as a separate jetted tub and a walk-in shower. A lovely sun porch adjoins the master with views of the ranch and on down Long Valley. • The kitchen and dining areas continue the detailed ambience yet with every modern convenience. • Consistently comfortable! Besides the passive solar orientation, the home is heated with hydronic floor heating enhanced by that grand stone fireplace with its Heatilator circulation and ceiling fans. • Upstairs in the loft overlooking the great room is a guest bedroom, bathroom and another loft room being used as an office/exercise room. • Between the house and garage is a charming flagstone patio with a hand wrought iron gate. • The garage is oversized and boasts not only a workshop in back but a small apartment above with bath and kitchenette. • The 150-year-old 4 stall barn with tack storage was actually brought from the old Ponderosa Ranch, AKA Bonanza!... and still serves its purpose well. There is a heated water trough, separate corral, and a round pen. With perimeter and cross fencing, currently a couple of horses have run of the whole ranch with access to plenty of natural feed and water. • The domestic well is 278' deep and produces 60+/- gpm. • AND currently fiber optic internet access is being installed and will be available to the house! • Just "over the hill" is Frenchman Lake and thousands of acres of USFS lands. Adjoining ranch lands are in conservancy so will never be developed. • Reno is just a half hour away. The ranch is about 4 miles north of Hwy 70 and from there a little over a mile to Hwy 395 (Hallelujah Junction) then about 20 miles to Reno. • What an awesome place to call home or retreat!
