The master planned community of Somersett offers a private 18-hole golf course to all Sierra Canyon residents.

Located on the beautiful south slope of the Peavine Mountains, Sierra Canyon in Reno, Nevada, is a Del Webb active adult community. Started in 2004, Sierra Canyon will have over 1,250 homes when completed. It is part of the master-planned golf community of Somersett. Residents enjoy clean air and the mild four-season climate of northern Nevada.


The houses range in size from 1,241 to 2,486 square feet and have one-, two-, or three-bedroom floor plans with two- and three-car garages. The homes feature kitchens that open to the family and dining rooms for convenience and easy entertaining. Upgrades, such as granite counters, tile floors, and stainless steel appliances, are available on many plans.


The beautiful 20,000-square-foot clubhouse, Aspen Lodge, contains a fitness center with state-of-the-art equipment, a ballroom, living room, and community kitchen, and rooms for hobbies, crafts, and billiards, plus an indoor pool and walking track. Outdoors is a spa, hot tub, and two tennis courts. Residents of Sierra Canyon enjoy access to Somersett’s amenities, which includes the opportunity for membership in the private 18-hole golf course designed by Tom Kite. The Somersett master planned community contains a variety of retail stores in a village center.


St. Mary's Hospital, a modern facility nearby, is equipped with 24-hour emergency service. Also located in Reno are Washoe Medical Center (north and south locations), Northern Nevada Medical Center, and several smaller medical centers catering to walk-in patients.

Gayle Drumheller of Keller Williams Group One, a local real estate professional, is enthusiastic about Sierra Canyon because it is “situated between Reno and Tahoe."

"You are never far from the action. Whether you are looking for an outdoor adventure, a day on the slopes, an afternoon of Shakespeare, or a ride in a hot air balloon at sunset, you’ll find it all close by and accessible from Sierra Canyon.” She says, “Sierra Canyon is located close to several grocery stores and dining establishments. Also nearby are several small boutiques and larger chain stores. Reno's Meadowood Mall is only a short drive into town.”

The surrounding area has a wide variety of recreation choices with 18 ski resorts, 39 golf courses, hiking and biking trails, boating, camping, and fishing. Just 15 minutes away, Downtown Reno is host to a River Walk and the area's largest white water rafting park.

Sierra Canyon residents can visit the Northern Nevada Museum of Art, enjoy numerous attractions at the Pioneer Center for Performing Arts and the Lake Tahoe Shakespeare Festival, and gamble in the Reno casinos.
