About Virginia Lenz
We have lived in this house since 1994, having moved to Reno from upstate New York. We did all the landscaping and most of the remodeling and design ourselves while juggling careers in music and law, and raising our now-adult sons. Since they both live in New York and we are now retired, we divide our time between Reno and the East. We have always loved to entertain and often host overnight guests. Mark loves to cook for them, especially breakfast delights, including his specialty, crepe-like pancakes, as well as German pancakes, scones, and muffins. We have been married forty years, having met as new members of the Rochester (NY) Philharmonic, fresh out of graduate school. Mark grew up in Reno and missed it, so it was inevitable that we would move back here some day. He picked up a law degree before we moved, and practiced civil law while Ginny wended her way quite often to play as a substitute violist with the San Francisco Symphony. Over the years, she went on many tours with them, Mark accompanying her when he could. Mark is a gifted craftsman and handyman; we are proud of our home and work hard to maintain it. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do. Now that you know a little about us, we'd be grateful if you tell us a little about you!
Virginia Lenz purchased this House in 1994
Why Virginia Lenz chose West University
We chose our residence because of its excellent location, being conveniently located near virtually every attraction in Reno and the surrounding area. We love our walks and hikes in nearby Rancho San Rafael, which includes a world-class arboretum, a rare collections of outstanding trees in Nevada.We can see the Balloon Races in September without ever leaving our deck. We can hop onto the freeway or over to University of Nevada events in five minutes. Truckee, the Graeagle, CA area, and Tahoe getaways are all within an hour or so. We are within minutes of the revived Mid-town area, the Riverside arts theater, the Nevada Museum of Art, and best of all, Artown, a downtown arts festival all of July!
What makes this House unique
It was newly built and had no previous owners. We were able to landscape it and design the interior as we desired.

We stayed here during the air races. It was so nice to come ‘home’ every evening to a house and cook our own dinner. The master bed was the most comfortable bed I’ve ever slept in! Property was very clean. Enjoyed wandering thru the garden paths too!
Beautiful Home, Excellent Location
We absolutely loved our stay. We were in town to visit my sister and the house was only 5 minutes from my sister and close to downtown too. The check in process was easy and the owner was super friendly, responsive and kept us informed at all times. Also, not only was the location great, but the house itself was beautiful and very clean. It's very obvious the owner's take pride in their home and we were honored to be able to stay there for our mini vacation. Will definitely book again!
Would stay again.
