Details matter: old Reno showpiece home available for only the third time in its storied history. Gracing a .57 acre corner lot in Southridge Estates, 1500 Sharon Way mixes mid-century craftsmanship with modern amenities. This Roman brick ranchette sits back from the road, highlighted by over $120,000 in beautiful landscaped grounds.
Just past the front door, youre welcomed into the living room with a reimagined soapstone fireplace designed around a mirrored modern wall hanging. There is also a 14 foot northwest facing picture window that looks across the lush front lawn and ample gardens, and bathes the room in gentle light. The flooring is 2 year old, black stranded bamboo.
The master and secondary bedrooms retain their vintage charm with chest high windows which give light, but provide privacy. The third bedroom overlooks the backyard, and boasts a large window looking onto a pear tree. Both bathrooms are lightly modernized and retain original glazed tile.
Refinished solid birch cabinets with original double ovens, classic tile with contrasting bullnose countertops, and a top-of-the-line induction cooktop make this kitchen a home cooks dream and an entertaining hub. The ultra-mod wet bar tucked away in a hall closet is the epitome of the era.
Past the breakfast nook with it’s corner window is the grand family room, with a gas fireplace, classic built-in bbq, exposed plank and beam cathederal ceilings and an epoxied parquet brick floor. The family room opens to the front ‘coffee patio’ shaded by a tulip tree, and has access to the basement (mechanical room and wine storage) and garage. Not to be overlooked is the 870sf, 3 bay garage with lots of storage – a rare amenity in a home of this vintage.
Evenings can be enjoyed on the expansive paver patio with old-vine concord and champagne grapes providing privacy while still allowing views of the lovingly curated iris collection (there are roughly 100 irises across the property). The backyard also features fruit bearing apple, pear, apricot and cherry trees, lush greenscapes, a fully dripped and enclosed organic vegetable garden and a fenced and hedged dog run with concrete block dog house.
All of this is just steps from the highly ranked Jesse Beck Elementary (also zoned for Swope Middle and Reno High Schools), Plumas and Newlands parks are just down the road, and Washoe County Golf course is less than 5 minutes away. Easy access to I80 and I580, Reno Public Market and Park Lane development, Midtown, and a comfortable bike ride to the Riverwalk. This home is perfect as it is, or could be the starting point for your impressive remodel.
Further upgrades include: new sewer line from home to city main; 5 year old roof; 8 month old, HE natural gas furnace; PVC sprinkler and drip systems with wifi controls; vinyl frame double pane windows; cellular insulating and UV blocking top down, bottom up shades; fully grounded electric.
