Are you looking for the perfect home for your growing family in one of the best neighborhoods in Truckee? Then look no further than this well designed four-bedroom home in the cozy Glenshire subdivision. Glenshire is one of the most desirable places to
raise a family because it is home to mostly full-time residents and provides easy access to the Truckee River, Interstate 80, and Boca Reservoir!
Originally built in 1990, this home was extensively remodeled in 2007. Everywhere you look, you will see the signs of the care that this home received from the family that has raised their children here for the last 22 years!
The second story of the home was added during the 2007 remodel, which also included the construction of an oversized master bedroom and bathroom. Other 2007 renovations included a new roof and the installation of a new whole-home security alarm system,
new tankless water heater, and new furnace.
Before we get into the interior features of this home, one of its most-alluring elements is the large, fenced-in backyard. The yard is nicely landscaped and includes a built-in horseshoe pit to help you keep your guests entertained once you are settled
into this beautiful family home.
Backyard activities can either be supervised from the lower back deck or the private upper deck that can only be accessed from the master bedroom. In addition to providing plenty of privacy because it is fully fenced, the yard backs up to a huge acreage
parcel that is undeveloped.
The yard also includes a dog run for your furry companions, which can be accessed from a built-in pet door that is located off the side of the house. From both decks, you can enjoy beautiful tree views back into the adjacent forest.
Inside the home, the private deck off the master bedroom includes a large Hot Springs hot tub and the deck itself is made of weather-resistant Trex decking. This decking material requires minimal maintenance and you will not have to worry about restaining
it every other year! The master bedroom also features a spacious walk-in closet and there is already natural gas piped into the bedroom if you decide to install a gas stove for added warmth and comfort on wintery mountain days.
There is also an additional room off the master bedroom that can be used as a home office, nursery, workout room, or for any other purpose that suits your family.
The master bathroom includes a double-headed shower and programmable, heated tile floor. This means you can step out of the shower onto a warm floor even in the colder winter months.
The addition of a jetted tub in the master bath gives you a place to relax those tired muscles after a full day of Tahoe recreation.
There is also a junior master suite in this home with two more guest bedrooms to utilize as you please.
That junior suite also includes a private bathroom, which is perfect for a growing teenager or visiting in-laws.
The additional full bath on the main floor serves the two guest bedrooms comfortably.
The large kitchen features marvelous granite countertops, stylish stainless-steel appliances, and built-in cabinets for ample food and dishware storage.
The gas range allows for superior temperature control when you’re cooking and bar seating gives you a secondary place to eat when you don’t feel like setting the table in the dining room.
Light-colored hardwood floors throughout the entry, living room, kitchen, and dining room make this home extra cozy and super easy to clean. The dining room is outlined with a large window and sliding glass door that allow an abundance of natural light
to filter into space. That sliding glass door provides access to the home’s wrap-around front deck.
In the living room, vaulted pine ceilings create an incredibly spacious lounge area and a centrally-located wood burning stove to help you stay warm and comfortable during Tahoe winters. And as an added bonus, this home comes with 2.5 cords of wood that
is already split and stacked!
The heated four-car garage has eleven-foot ceilings and an abundance of built-in cabinets for storage. While the garage currently features an eight-foot garage door, it is framed for a ten-foot door and could easily be converted to accommodate taller
The garage also includes a tankless water heater that supplies unlimited hot water to the bathrooms and kitchen in the home. And if you only need room for one or two vehicles, it provides plenty of space for all of your recreation equipment and toys.
Speaking of the kids, this home is less than one mile away from Glenshire Elementary School, which is arguably the most desirable elementary campus in all of Truckee. It is also within walking distance of miles of hiking and biking trails, as well
as just a short drive away from the Truckee River for fishing and/or swimming.
This home is located within the Glenshire-Devonshire Association, which provides access to a community pool, tennis courts, and clubhouse area that is great for hosting birthday parties, family reunions, and other gatherings. It is also just 22 miles
away from Reno, 14 miles to Northstar, and just 7 miles from downtown Truckee.

Why Live in Glenshire
One of the most alluring reasons to live in Glenshire is its residents. It is one of the few subdivisions in Truckee where the vast majority of residents live here year-round. This helps to create a true sense of caring and community that, quite frankly,
other Truckee subdivisions simply lack.
It also lies about six miles east of the most highly-trafficked areas of town, which means you can enjoy the peace and quiet of mountain living even during our busiest tourist seasons!
And if you plan to raise kids in Truckee, Glenshire has low-speed limits, plenty of open space (including our very own pond and multiple meadows), and access to miles of hiking and biking trails right out your back door!
