Incredibly stunning, completely and lovingly restored, late victorian home just a few miles south of Yerington. This 5 bedroom, 2 bath, 3141 square foot home was originally built in 1904 from wood that was salvaged from buildings in Virginia city and is on the Nevada State historical register. The current owners started work on the house in 1997, and remodeled it staying with the time period that it was originally built, but with modern conveniences.
n just the time that they have owned the house, not only have they finished all the cosmetic remodeling, they have also installed a new well, a ducted heating system (and ac on the first floor), new water treatment and reverse osmosis system, new water lines from the well to the house, a tankless hot water heater, and a 3 car garage with one extra tall bay that will fit a long bed truck with a cab.
There are extensive pavers and patios in the backyard along with fruit trees and a small man made stream for ambiance. The front yard is awash with wildflowers in the spring and all landscaping is on automatic sprinkler and drip system.
In addition to the new garage, there is another historic building on the property that doubles as storage and a workshop. The land is on a hillside with the house placed as to see the whole valley below. With beautiful sunrises in the front and sunsets in the back of the house, you’ll never get tired of looking at the views. In addition to the beauty, the lot backs up to BLM where you can hike for days or take your side by side out for an evening ride.
The owners have taken great care to make sure that no detail has been spared when redoing this home. If you like the feeling and look of an older home with all of the bells and whistles of a newer home, you’ll appreciate everything the Nordyke house has to offer.
The house was actually built in 1904 as part of the family corporation, and the sellers have postcards in the memory book dated 1909 when the family was living in it. It was not officially recorded by the assessors office until 1930, thus being listed as when it was built. As stated above, the house is currently on the Nevada Historic registry, but that does not put any restrictions on the use or any changes to the property.
