This beautiful, gently up-sloping, 1-acre lot sits on a quiet lane in the alpine setting of St Jamess Village, a premier, gated community in south west Reno. A highly-desirable lot indeed, as it backs to Browns Creek and canyon, and adjoins over 50 acres of undisturbed HOA & common-space area. With just the right balance of sun light and towering Douglas fir treesand Mt Rose Ski area and the Sierra as the backdropthere is no finer executive, residential setting. Just minutes from north Lake Tahoe, Incline Village and the Reno-Tahoe Airport; less time to Carson City and a major medical center. Many nearby hiking/biking trails, including a 5 min walk to one giving you access to Browns Creek and canyon, and hundreds of acres of Federal and undeveloped land. Nestled at 5,700, this home-site offers the perfect balance of high-desert conditions: cooler than Reno in the summer, less snow accumulation than Tahoe in the winter. St James is a 1,600 acre, master-planned community, with 890 common-space acres, a fire station at the main gate, and easy south-gate access to I-580. Shopping, fine dining, a Jack Nicklaus Signature Championship Course at nearby Montreux Golf and Country Club, and your pick of 15 different world-class Lake Tahoe-area ski resorts are all just a short drive from this exquisite property. The icing on this cake is Nevada's friendly tax structure...there is no state income tax, estate tax, or inheritance tax.
