This 5-acre equestrian estate located in Reno, Nevada, offers a gated entrance, and peaceful surrounding ponds and waterfalls. Picturesque mountains serve as a stunning backdrop for the inviting ranch-style home.
Lined with private, white fencing, this stunning two-story home with five-bedrooms and four-bathrooms sits on nearly 2.5 acres, shaded by mature trees. The landscaped driveway leads past a spacious guest quarters detached from the main home.
