We recently finished a top-to-bottom renovation of our 900 sq. ft. Truckee home in December 2017.

Super convenient location perched above Downtown Truckee with views to Northstar, the Carson Range and surrounding Sierra Nevada Mountains. Enjoy a night out on the town with a short walk home, or how about just sit on your deck and overlook the bustle of historic downtown while the setting sun provides a painted backdrop, get the picture?

Hello there, glad you had a nice time. Anyone who knows the town of Truckee knows a train runs through it. In our supporting documents we have the information about train, have provided ear plugs for sensitive sleepers and also have notes about the slow plow noise in the winter…
