Environmentally conscious home including hydronic heating and solar panels on 8+ acres in Verdi. Amazing end of road location with gorgeous mountain views.

Nestled in the Sierra foothills and literally the first home in Nevada over the California-Nevada line along the I-80 corridor, this unique property is a special opportunity for someone who enjoys privacy and extremely low utility bills.

Home is on a well with on-property septic and features two solar systems, one for hot water, and another for electricity that is tied to the grid. The primary heat source is hydronic hot water that runs under the stained concrete floors downstairs. Amazing insulation.

Lots of love went into the construction of this home. The house itself is a newer construction with hand plastered walls, lots of natural light, two solar systems (one for hot water and another for electricity that is tied to the grid,) and hydronic hot water heating that runs under the the stained concrete floors downstairs. One of the most energy efficient homes in the area.

Technically considered 2 bedroom 1 bath, the house is currently set-up as a 1 extra-large bedroom upstairs with the downstairs master bedroom area set up as a living room space. Owner has plans drawn up to convert the property into a 3 bedroom 3 bath that can be transferred with the sale for those interested in upgrading the space even further. Also opportunity to build another home on the land if desired.

Frequently Asked Questions:

1. Can you see or hear the highway from the property?

You can see small sections of the highway, most of highway is blocked from view. You can hear the highway in the distance some days but it is not very loud. Other days it is not audible at all, if the wind is blowing towards the highway, which seems to be the prevailing direction. The home site faces primarily hills and burms that are in front of the highway.

2. Has the water been checked for contaminants or minerals?

There is a water system in the home, that is being serviced within the next week.

3. What are the snow conditions on the road, who is responsible for plowing it generally? Same question for garbage.

There are no plow responsibilities. The two closest neighbors have their own plows. The years I lived there, I just drove over the snow. That has worked fine most years, but obviously would not have worked last winter. There is garbage pickup at the bottom of the road.

4. Is the property zoned for horses? Any restriction for personal trailers?

We believe it is, neighbors have horses, but buyer should verify with the city or Reno and/or Washoe county.

5. Can the property be sub-divided?

One interested party contacted the city of Reno and relayed back that the information they received was that the property cannot be subdivided. Potential buyers should contact City of Reno / Washoe county directly to confirm.

6. Is the home completely "off grid" ?

No, the solar panel system is tied to the grid. During the day the solar panels sell energy to the power company, and during times when the sun is not shining power is sold back to the house. This ensures that electricity is always available to the resident, regardless of weather.

7. Can I come see the property?

Open house Saturday Feb 17th 1pm - 4pm. Please email if you plan on coming.

Please drive very slowly on road up to the property as there are deer and wildlife roaming the neighborhood.
