Sitting on 5 acres in south Washoe Valley near Franktown, 75 Lonesome Polecat could be the country-quiet, city close property for you. This 1963 brick ranchette sits halfway up the parcel, giving great views of the valley and Virginia Range. The metal roof reinforces this homes “country bona fides,” and reduces exterior home maintenance to near zero.
Just inside the front door, past the slate entryway, is the large living room with a brick naturally recirculating wood burning fireplace and a modern eat-in kitchen with tons of counter space, double built-in ovens, and large windows. Pass through the sliders onto the private large, partially covered patio with two ponds and a dry creek. The +/-.5ac park-like backyard is fully fenced with 6 foot deer fencing to keep the dogs in and the wild out.
The basement has been partially finished (with heat) to be used as a family or media room, and there is a 400+ sf dry storage room – or small workshop – as well. Though never used, there are also two sump pumps installed in case of high water table.
The mature trees. The tasteful updates. This lovely home and all the opportunity (horse property? Retirement ranch? Small farm? Expansion?) can be yours for the first time in over 30 years!
