Southwest Reno Homes for Sale
Home options are diverse ranging from town houses, single story ranch style homes, to large estates and state of the art custom homes. Around the Skyline and Manzanita area, many of the homes were built back in the sixties and seventies with vacant lots being filled with new custom homes over the years. New construction is still happening today, with new town homes being built near Virginia Lake and a new community, Whispering Canyon, features new homes right where Meridian Lane and Southampton Drive intersect.
