New, lakefront community catering to 55-plus crowd to open in Reno this fall
By: Mountain Lakes Estates Retirement Community
Located on lakefront property with expansive views of the Sierras, the 121,000 square-foot, four-story building offers 131 apartment homes, all of them studio, one- and two-bedroom units. Balconies are available in select residences. According to Fisher, the community was designed to be a "room with a view" at every turn. "Every window, balcony and outdoor seating area is the perfect spot to take in Reno's natural beauty."
Covered patios and an outdoor fire pit bring the outdoors, indoors. There are winding paths for walking and biking, and nearby trails for early morning hikes. From the shoreline, residents can fish or launch their canoe or kayak for a morning paddle. Every aspect of the community has been "designed to make healthy, active, and connected living a way of daily life," Fisher explained.
Mountain Lakes Estates is close enough to Reno for residents to stay connected to the community and experience the culture. There's the theater and performing arts center, galleries and museums, lifelong learning classes at the nearby University of Nevada; and spas, shopping and casinos. Neighboring Truckee and Lake Tahoe offer weekend and daylong getaways.
Fisher said that without the hassles of homeownership, residents can lock up and leave without having to worry about maintenance or security. "Community living is ideal for people who view retirement as a new chapter in life. When you have the freedom, conveniences and resources available, you can live life however you choose."
Dining options include chef-prepared meals served in the dining room and lighter fare offered in the bistro and coffee shop. There are expansive indoor and outdoor areas for entertaining and social gatherings, plus a lake view outdoor firepit, gardening areas, and benches situated along the lake.
Amenities include a billiards room, movie theater, creative arts center, a beauty salon and barbershop, exercise classes and access to a fully-equipped fitness center.
A limited number of apartment homes in select sizes and styles are available. Call (775) 384-1026 or visit http://www.mountainlakesestates.net.
Mountain Lakes Estates will employ about 25 full- and part-time team members. Each will be trained in the mission, values and principles (MVPs) that support the organization's mission of caring people, serving people, improving lives.
Project partners include Pinnacle Architects, PA, MSL Construction, LLC, and Contract Interiors.
