If you want a rural feel but stay close to town with all its modern amenities, you should check out the wonderful community of Spanish Springs. Homes here include everything from horse-zoned, 1 acre ranch styles to uber modern customs to mid-size starter family homes, and, smart one-story homes for easy retirement living. Located along Pyramid Hwy north of Reno, don’t blink! This area is expanding north into the Palomino Valley! And no wonder, Pyramid Lake is up ahead on Pyramid highway. Multi-family townhomes, older areas of times past show off their wonderfully maintained and mature landscaping, wonderful schools, parks, growth of new restaurants and services, this area is perfect for expanding your toy collection!
