Old Southwest Reno

Southwest Tree Lined Street 2One of my favorite neighborhoods in Reno, the Old Southwest! This established neighborhood is right next to downtown Reno.

It is located south of the Truckee River down to the Plumb Lane area, and west of S. Virginia Street and over to Hunter Lake Drive. Here you will find tree-lined streets and houses that date back to the early 1900’s.

 The homes built during this time were built one at time and are all different. You will find tiny brick cottages and huge mansions sharing the same block. It is truly one of Reno’s most unique and well preserved older neighborhoods.

Most days, you will find lots of the residents out strolling the area, walking their dogs, or just visiting with neighbors. Downtown Reno, with its newly revitalized shops, restaurants, and pubs is a short walk or bike ride away.Southwest Reno Home Buyers

The Truckee River is close at hand, complete with a world class whitewater park as well as more sedate tubing and wading areas. Long winding trails, popular with walkers, joggers, and roller bladers, follow the river from downtown towards the suburbs. Live music and other events at Wingfield Park are similarly minutes away.

The Men’s Journal rated Reno’s Old Southwest Neighborhood as one of the west’s top 30 “coolest hoods” because of our abundant sunshine, the closeness to ski resorts, whitewater rafting in the Truckee River and affordable cost of live, just to mention a few awesome features this area has to offer.
