Plus Best Bang For Your Buck!

3.24 Acres of Possibilities

The potential of this large property is enormous. You could build a workshop or man cave and it’s even zoned for horses! But we think you should plant some grass and fence it in for endless fun for Lassie. Heck, with that much space, you could do that and still have room to put in a pool. The house itself has an updated country vibe, with a stone and brick exterior, homey fireplace inside, and interior stone wall in the kitchen. So go ahead and start your very own ranch. Info: $849,000, 4 bed, 3 bath, 3,143 square feet, 2600 Newton Lane, Truckee, Ferrari-Lund Real Estate

2.35 Acres is so Fetch

Are you ready to live minutes from downtown? Well, Pongo is, if it means a fenced doggy dreamland! Lots of terrain and a large living space make this a great place for a dog to roam. The interior of the house is updated, including stunning kitchen countertops and a swanky dining room light fixture, so you can invoke Cruella De Vil’s unique style without needing a posh spotted coat. Plus, in the winter you can probably go snowshoeing without having to leave your expansive backyard. Info: $945,000, 4 bed, 3 bath, 3,148 square feet, 11288 Mount Rose View Dr., Truckee, Coldwell Banker

7.2 Acre Doggy Dream

If rural living is in your future, this property and little house are truly for you! About 30 minutes outside of Truckee, Russell Valley offers some huge lots, and the dreams are big too. This is an off-grid subdivision, so this house is ready for installation of a solar system (you know Moonshine loves alternative energy solutions). Rin Tin Tin can run along beside you as you trek to the surrounding three reservoirs (Boca, Stampede, and Prosser), or hike into bordering U.S. Forest Service lands. Info: $575,000, 1 bed, 2 bath, 865 square feet, 13662 Russell Valley Rd., Truckee, Truckee River Homes

1 Mile of Shoreline

Beethoven might be a little big to sleep on your bed, but a wide open beach all to himself? Perfect. This Carnelian Bay townhouse has a fenced yard, an updated, modern interior, and is in a gated community with all the perks — tennis courts, swimming pool, and private beach access. So now, instead of spending time driving to the lake, you can focus your energy on teaching that 200 pound dog how to swim like a goldfish. Info: $650,000, 3 bed, 2 bath, 1,520 square feet, 3600 North Lake Blvd. #59, Tahoe City, Coldwell Banker
