Glenshire is a popular community that is both quiet and family-friendly. The east end of Truckee is a short 10-minute drive from the Main Historic district (six miles) to your home. It’s also a convenient 30-minute to Reno for those who need to commute. Within Glenshire and the surrounding mountain are endless opportunities for recreation and fun. People refer to Glenshire affectionately as being in the ‘banana belt,’ meaning the area gets less snow in the winter than other areas. It is here that you will find children in the streets playing and riding bikes, strollers and dogs cruising around the central pond and families at the playgrounds. Home prices begin in the low $200,000s, and can range above $1,000,000, for properties in The Meadow, a gated subdivision within the Glenshire area.
Glenshire Pond is one of the smallest lakes in the area at 11 acres. The community of Glenshire hugs the shores of the lake with nearly 1400 single-family homes. Eighty percent are year-round homeowners with the remaining 20% being second homeowners. The environmental-conscious residents have close to 236 acres of open space within the neighborhood offering green space, walking and equestrian trails, and good old Mother Nature. This is a planned community with mandatory home association dues. Complete rules and bylaws are located here. There is also a Facebook page for residents to keep up on the latest news.
Glenshire has many amenities for the homeowner: A nice clubhouse near the lake with a lawn area, a commercial center with several businesses, an outdoor swimming and wading pool, tennis courts, volleyball court, basketball court, playground and a BBQ area with a gazebo. You’ll find kids camps, exercise classes, and lap swims in the early morning hours.
If you want a very family oriented feel with mostly primary residents, this could be the location for you.
