We always love having a "grand old house" on the tour and this lovely example of the Free Classic Queen Anne style is very special. Sitting on its original lot in Reno's early Southside Addition, it has been brought back from a sadly neglected condition by its current owners, Dr. Larry and Chris Klaich. Early owners were the Butler family, followed by the Hilts family, who occupied the home for more than fifty years. This beautiful home is our adaptive reuse property for 2018. Today it is short-term housing, featuring eight attractive individual studio units, each with a bathroom, and with a community kitchen. Most often, a covered dish can be found on the center island, with mouth-watering homemade cookies for the guests, courtesy of Chris Klaich. Tour participants will be able to view the common areas of the property and get a peek inside some of the studio units. An added bonus, the "vehicle" at the home will be the Chism Ice Cream wagon.
