Galena is a mountainside community in Southwest Reno, just above Montreux, with prices ranging from the $300,000's to over $2 Million for a single family home. Homes are spaced apart nicely among the forest with access to Galena Creek Trail and Park.
The location is ideal, on the foothills of Mount Rose ranging from 5,000-5,500' in elevation, the temperatures can be 10 degrees cooler than the hot valley floor in summer. Reno boasts over 250 sunny days a year and this elevation gets cold enough for accumulating snow events in big Sierra storms. Galena is located off Mt. Rose Highway, about 5 miles from Sierra Summit with world class shopping, dining, movie cinemas and seasonal farmers market Tuesdays and Saturdays, 10 miles from Mt. Rose Ski Area, 20 miles from North Lake Tahoe and 15 miles from the Reno-Tahoe Airport. Top ranking public schools Hunsberger Elementary School and Galena High School, along with private schools including Sage Ridge School serving 5th-12th grades, Bishop Manogue High School, Our Lady of the Snows, Brookfield School and Mountain View Montessori School serving preK-8th grade.
