StoneGate Reno is a master planned community organized for Nevada in the northern portion of the city. However, where in the world will that be?
StoneGate Reno will be nestled in the pine trees and lush meadows of northwest Peavine Mountain. Peavine Mountain is a small Reno landmark. Early prospectors to the mountain discovered wild pea vines growing on the northeast flank of the mountain, hence the name.
Situated 13 miles from the I-80 and U.S. 395 Spaghetti Bowl, StoneGate Reno will be located off North Virginia Street. This is the historic Heinz Ranch property. A natural gem near the community of Cold Springs, Heinz Ranch Nevada borders the White Lake playa. A working ranch for nearly 120 years, Heinz Ranch has played an integral role in the infrastructure, economic and educational development of the Truckee Meadows. The ranch served weary travelers when it was a stagecoach stop between Reno and Susanville, California; it educated youth during the 1800s when it was used as a community schoolhouse; and it housed the area’s only post office in the early 1900s. This historic land will now become Reno’s future as it lends itself toward the work housing balance needed after the economic boom felt within the community.
StoneGate Reno will encompass ±1,378 acres of private land, the former Heinz Ranch Nevada land, and will include a variety of different sized homes as well as an abundant amount of open space. StoneGate Reno is committed to preserving and maintaining 25 to 30 percent of its total acreage as common area/open space for its residents. The StoneGate Reno land is situated near the Toyaibe National Forest, which includes many different trails that StoneGate Reno residents will be able to enter from the master planned community.
When driving north on U.S. 395, be sure to look left out your window to view the land and the future home of StoneGate Reno.
