Rich in history, this stunning, historic mansion in Reno, Nevada was recently listed on the market for $20,4 million, making it the most expensive publicly listed property in the city. The Nixon Mansion takes its name from its original owner, Nevada Senator George S. Nixon, who built the prestigious estate in 1907. Originally, it had 33 rooms, and was one of the first residences in Reno to have an elevator. The Italian villa has been meticulously restored over the past decade using only the finest materials and craftsmanship.
This 17,964 square foot residence sits atop the Truckee River on 2.03 acres and boasts panoramic views of Downtown Reno, Peavine Mountains and North Valleys. The new 860 sq. ft. kitchen wing features Butler’s Pantry, Laundry room, Walk-in Pantry, 60”La Crue French range, multiple refrigerators & dishwashers – perfect for large corporate events or family gatherings.
Reminiscent of old world elegance, the stately Formal Dining Room with carved Mahogany fireplace, provides seating for 80 guests under the original crystal chandelier. Venture into the 800 square foot Grand Ballroom and adjacent river view bar. Their restored fireplaces are just 2 of 9 throughout the home. Or, take the celebration outside to the expansive covered terrace with the Truckee River serenading your guests.
The Master Suite includes two stunning Carrera marble bathrooms, each with a custom Mahogany walk in closet, a garden view Juliet balcony and private river view office. Seven additional en-suite bedrooms, many with fireplaces & balconies, provide ample accommodations for guests or corporate visitors.
Speaking of guests, in addition to the spacious entertaining rooms and terraces, the property features several unique rooms: an 1800-bottle wine cellar/tasting area, game room with wet bar (which can easily serve as a theatre, music studio or private gallery) and a sunlit morning room for breakfast dining. Though grand in nature, this home also lends itself to intimate social gatherings in the parlor, library, and river bar.
This prestigious estate has welcomed politicians, dignitaries and entrepreneurs while serving as a private home to Reno’s notable figures. The Nixon Mansion not only stands as witness to a significant and colorful past but as a sentinel for a bright and polished future.
