Built in 1907 for Senator George Nixon, whose fortune was amassed in Nevada’s historic mining industry, Reno’s Nixon Mansion has been extraordinarily and meticulously restored to embrace the spirit of the era. The daring goal of returning the 17,964-square-foot estate to its former Old World grandeur while updating it for modern times is evident through a multitude of enhancements. The 800-square-foot grand ballroom featuring beveled mirrors and Boiserie-finish walls, a 60-seat dining room, 1,800-bottle wine cellar, and salon overlooking the sparkling Truckee River and panoramic views beyond downtown Reno, the Sierra Nevada, and north valleys embrace the charm of gracious living. The crown jewels within include seven en suite bedrooms and a view-filled master with two marble baths, a Juliette balcony, and private office. A sunlit morning room, parlor, library, and terraces provide quiet retreats. All four levels—including 3,237 square feet of storage space in the lower level—are served by an elevator.
