Verdi is rich in Old West history. The route up Dog Valley Summit and then southwest to Donner Lake carried much of the freight wagons between Virginia City and Reno on the Nevada side, and the booming towns of Dutch Flat, Auburn and Sacramento on the California side. The road is now Old Dog Valley Road located just past 201 Feenune Rd, which was the main auto and truck route between California and Reno until 1927, but is still used today as a quiet alternative to Hwy 80 and for recreation by Truckee and Reno locals.
Despite its quaint disposition, Verdi has plenty to offer while being out of the hustle and bustle of Reno and Truckee. The Verdi History Center contains interesting photos and other memorabilia of the towns days as a mill and railroad town. Crystal Peak Park has a scenic walking trail that follows the Truckee River. A community fishing pond opened at the park and hosts such family events as kids fishing tournaments. You can cross the historic Crystal Peak Toll Bridge, built in 1928, on Bridge Street, also home to the Verdi Library, which has a wealth of information on the town’s history. Residents and visitors can play the nine-hole Crystal Peak Golf Course, and Boomtown Hotel Casino and Cabela’s outdoor superstore are also in close proximity.
Nestled against Tahoe National Forest resides a craftsman mountain-style home close to all of the conveniences of Reno and Truckee alike on 2 acres. Built in 2007, the architectural appeal and design is what is expected from luxury home in Truckee, with plenty of outdoor living spaces, high end finishes, and a 3-car garage. The mostly level layout of the home is well thought out and offers effortless, yet impressive stage for entertaining guests. The chef’s kitchen offers Thermador cook top island, granite slabs countertops, 2 walk in pantries, rich hickory cabinetry, wine fridge, breakfast nook, and bar sink. A cozy family room/den and formal dining area are adjacent to the kitchen. The master suite has high ceilings, a large walk-in closet, and french doors leading to either a central patio or a private, covered hot tub patio. The master bath has a spa-like feel with a jetted tub, tiled shower, and separate water closet. 2 additional en-suite bedrooms feature beautifully tiled bathrooms and hardwood floors. The soaring ceilings and picturesque windows of the great room frame the views and unobstructed night time stars, complemented by a slate hearth and gas fireplace. All of this for a fraction of what this home would cost in Truckee.
