Monte Vista is a brand new community featuring 2,800- 4,000 sq. ft. homes on one to two acre home sites with magnificent views of Mt. Rose and the Ski Area. Larger properties with open views characterize the area with a more rural feel. Callahan Park is located across Mt. Rose Highway and is a neighborhood gem with access to two playgrounds, a creek, playfield and Galena Creek Trail. View Monte Vista website.
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. Monte Vista 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.
