Westfield village is a small neighborhood in Reno, Nevada, where we live and love the benefits of high desert life. Apparently the first "track housing" in Reno, the houses are generally small and there seem to be only a handful of similar model designs. Built in 1946, our house has a spectacular view of the Sierras from the front south facing window. Westfield is considered one of the most soft after neighborhoods in Reno. It isn't as high priced as the "Shire", and not as self-proclaimed trendy as Midtown. The beauty of Westfield Village is that it is designed to not be a thruway to any place other area, reducing traffic, it's an easy shot by foot or bike to the prettiest parts of the downtown river area, walking distance to a couple of great parks, and zoned for some of the best public schools in Reno. It's also close to many shops but lacks the unsavory things that for some reason make Midtown trendy.
