Rich in History

Brick, Wood, Stone of a Bygone Era

Old World Craftsman Style

Built in 1907 for US Senator George Nixon, this prestigious estate has welcomed politicians, dignitaries and entrepreneurs while serving as a private home to Reno’s notable families.


Rich in history, this stunning, historic mansion has been meticulously restored over the past decade using only the finest materials & craftsmanship. This 17,964 square foot residence sits atop the Truckee River on 2.03 acres and boasts panoramic views of Downtown Reno, Peavine Mountains and North Valleys.

Reminiscent of old world elegance, the stately Formal Dining Room with carved Mahogany fireplace, provides seating for 80 guests under the original crystal chandelier. Venture into the 800 square foot Grand Ballroom with Boiserie finish walls and adjacent river view bar. Their restored fireplaces are just 2 of 9 throughout the home. Or, take the celebration outside to the expansive covered terrace with the Truckee River serenading your guests. 

The new 860 sq. ft. kitchen wing features Butler’s Pantry, Laundry room, Walk-in Pantry, 60” La Cornue French range, multiple refrigerators & dishwashers - perfect for large corporate events or family gatherings.

The Master Suite includes 2 stunning Carrera marble bathrooms, each with a custom Mahogany walk in closet, a garden view Juliet balcony and private river view office. 7 additional en-suite bedrooms, many with fireplaces & balconies, provide ample accommodations for guests or corporate visitors. 

Speaking of guests, in addition to the spacious entertaining rooms and terraces, the property features several unique rooms: an 1800-bottle wine cellar/tasting area, game room with wet bar (which can easily serve as a theatre, music studio or private gallery) and a sunlit morning room for breakfast dining. Though grand in nature, this home also lends itself to intimate social gatherings in the parlor, library, and river bar. 



Located on historic California Avenue along the Truckee River, this estate offers walking distance to restaurants, events, and the Downtown River Walk. Just a short drive to Reno’s International Airport, Lake Tahoe’s azure waters, and regional sport activities, this crown jewel of the world’s “Biggest Little City” offers mixed use zoning; perfect for a corporate retreat seeking Nevada’s tax friendly advantages.

The Nixon Mansion not only stands as witness to a significant and colorful past but as a sentinel for a bright and polished future.
