The scenic South Meadows area of Reno is where you will find Double Diamond Ranch and Damonte Ranch, true master-planned communites. For thousands of years, this beautiful area attracted wildlife from the spectacular Sierra Nevadas. Today, Double Diamond Ranch attracts those who seek a special kind of life featuring exceptional residences amid a magical natural backdrop. For outdoor enthusiasts, it truly doesn’t get any better than the Reno/Tahoe area. Double Diamond Ranch is about 30 minutes from Mt. Rose, one of many world-class ski resorts the Sierras have to offer. Lake Tahoe and Incline Village are only a short drive away, for winter getaways or summer fun. Quality schools within walking distance; a variety of living options; great parks for kids; and a wealth of convenient shopping complete the equation for Double Diamond and Damonte Ranch’s desirability for South Reno residents.
At Double Diamond Ranch, there’s everything necessary to live a meaningful life in today’s modern world. Over 26 miles of walking trails and respectfully preserved open wetlands confirm the community’s commitment to wide-open big country living. An exceptional array of new home choices can be found throughout the community. Many of Double Diamond’s new home neighborhoods are privately gated, featuring well-equipped recreational lifestyle centers. Business opportunities abound at two adjacent major business parks, including a state of the art 70-plus acre Reno Tahoe Tech Center. At Double Diamond Ranch, you’ll feel a world apart, yet close enough to enjoy Reno’s well-known entertainment, dining and shopping opportunities.
Double Diamond Homes range from the high $300’s to the $700’s and are a strongly recommended value. Double Diamond Ranch homes have historically appreciated consistently, although prices are leveling out and buyers have stronger power to choose the best home from a wide selection.

Current Damonte Communities and New Home Builders:
We would highly recommend the assistance of a realtor — at no cost to you — when touring any of these communities to get full disclosure on the area and the full range of resale and new construction options.
|Lennar Homes||Derby Run||Derby Run at nearby Curti Ranch with lower prices|
|Toll Brothers||Heritage at Damonte Ranch||From the low $400’s near Damonte Ranch High School and butting up near Sage Ridge Gun Club / foothills. Adults-only as Toll Brothers looks for a new angle to get inventory sold in Reno. Nevada is “one of their worst markets” mentioned in analyst briefings.|
|Toll Brothers||Saddleridge at Damonte Ranch||3k-4.5k square feet from the upper $600k’s. The same as the development above but “Phase2”. Many resales from national speculation in Phase1 is available already built from realtors.|
|Toll Brothers||Dorado attached homes||Luxury attached homes from the upper $500k’s ranging up to 3.3k square feet. For $600k, you can get a lot more in Damonte Ranch unless you love sharing a wall with a neighbor. They’ll note it’s a garage wall.|
|DiLoreto Homes||New Editions (wasn’t this a boy band in the 1990’s?)||“Paired” (ie attached) homes from 1300 to 1900 square feet. A half price sale from Toll Brothers’s Dorado — these start at only $286k!|
|Reynen and Bardis “R&B”||Remuda Collection||A great value starting at only $350k and likely ready to deal. This development was started at the peak of the buying boom. 1,900 to 2,700 square feet starter homes or move up to Stagecoach below….|
|Reynen and Bardis “R&B”||Stagecoach Collection||Full disclosure – we live in and love one of these homes in West Reno. 2,600 – 3,800 square feet from $435k. Worth checking out but also very close to a dog kennel (Fisher’s Desert Kennels). These are a good value and a well built home. Many are single story.|
|KB Homes||Ravenna at Monte Sereno||Beautiful Italian name for these cookie cutter homes that seem to interest no-one. Cheaply built appearance but it gets you in Damonte Ranch. Watch the build quality closely. From the high $300k’s with 2k to 3k square feet in 5 floor plans. Sample homes for $390k and $420k for immediate move-in (ie the original buyer vamoosed.)|
|KB Homes||Calabria at Monte Sereno||Same deal as above – not sure what even makes these different from Ravenna. Twelve floor plans from 1800 to 3500 square feet from the mid $300k’s. Sample homes for $355k and $450k for immediate move-in (ie the original buyer walked).|
