Thank you for enjoying the 2020 Tour of Homes with us! Although current circumstances caused us to change gears and hold the Tour online-only this year, we’re happy to present to you some of the Elko area’s finest homes for your pleasure.
For the second year in a row, our Tour’s proceeds will benefit CASA (Northeastern Nevada Court Appointed Special Advocates program). CASA recruits, screens, and trains volunteers from the community to advocate on behalf of abused, neglected, and/or abandoned children in Elko County.
Since the program began in Elko County in 2007, the Court system has had a record number of permanency hearings. That means that children are spending less time in foster care and are finding permanent homes in a much shorter time period. The CASA program has been able to provide a trained volunteer to every case since starting in January, 2007. The late Judge Andrew Puccinelli summed up the CASA program with one sentence: “The CASA volunteer provides the eyes and ears of the Court, the voice of the child, and a conscience of the community.”
If you’d like to donate to CASA, please click here or click on the button below.
You’ll be able to enjoy a virtual Tour via the video below. Beneath that, you’ll find info for each home on the Tour. Also, please be sure to visit and support our local sponsors, whose logos are further down on the page.
Without further ado, please enjoy the 2020 Tour Of Homes!

As a local family-builder business we have built hundreds of homes in Elko and Spring Creek over the years and we have taken all that feedback and done our best to incorporate that into our homes. We designed these from scratch. These are “our” designs. We took careful consideration into each room as if our own family was going to be living or entertaining in the space. Our hope is that people will see that they are different and enjoy these homes.
While we don’t have one favorite room, each of our models has unique characteristics. Our standard features include items that would often be considered upgrades, like the 9ft and vaulted ceilings, built in gourmet fridge, the stove top pot filler, 3 CM granite, elongated toilet bowls, luxury vinyl siding in a vertical board and batten style. There is the motion sense kitchen faucet, vented range hoods, 8 foot front door. The master bathrooms have a rain head shower and rectangular sinks, just to name a few. Check out our standard features and you will see what sets us apart. This particular home is set on 10 acres outside the association and has panoramic views of the Spring Creek valley and Ruby Mountains.
The community was so supportive when we decided to go out on our own, so building here was a no-brainer. We love what we do and we love all the people we do it with.
Welcome to Great Basin Estates! The owner of this home is also the builder who loves creating these beach-cottage style homes reminiscent of where he grew up on the California coastline. This particular floor plan is the Jarbidge 4, located on a large corner lot.
As you enter the home there is wood laminate flooring in the generous open plan living areas, tile in both bathrooms, carpet in all four of the bedrooms and granite countertops throughout. A spacious master bedroom with a roomy walk-in closet. The master bathroom features double vanity sinks and a large step in shower. All making for comfortable new construction living right in the heart of Elko.
This quaint Tree Street home is a delightful surprise to all who visit! Seemingly small on the outside as you enter through the pink front door it is full of lovely features and design elements.
The kitchen is the owner’s favorite, light and bright and efficient use of space, modern farmhouse design. Kitchen includes shiplap accents including hood, subway tile, and mixed metal hardware. The main level bath includes a refurbished clawfoot tub surrounded by a wall of subway tile, perfectly sized for the space. During the design and remodel process each room maintained a feature of the original details so that it has a modern/vintage feel that is timeless.
There are lots of design touches that the owner has perfectly placed throughout this home to give it a warm and inviting feeling. The back yard features a private covered patio area surrounded by dozens of historic doors. This is a perfect retreat.
From the front door you enter into a spacious great room with vaulted ceilings that go up to 16 feet high. There is an inviting fireplace with masonry surround and a gorgeous custom black walnut mantle piece. They are in the process of finishing some of the upper cabinetry in this space. The generous kitchen area has two large islands, one for prep and serving and the larger island for dining, doing homework or crafting. There is ample storage in all islands both with the cooler quartz countertops. The owners went with panel fronted appliances which blend into the cabinetry. There is a pot filler over the cooktop with an easy to clean textured tile backsplash. The oversized sink is perfect for everyday and entertaining as are the two dishwashers tucked in beside it. The open shelving also in black walnut has hand carved front edges which reflect the texture in the tile backsplash. All lending to a light and airy feel on this wall. The french doors on the double oven wall lead to a hidden pantry which has the coffee/tea station, a full fridge/freezer and the toaster, microwave etc.
They also made some modifications to suit their family needs like extending the roof to incorporate a large covered patio to take in the epic Ruby Mt. Views. The design look is “mountain modern”. There is the large 41 ft wide truss over the patio which is a covered area as large as the great room inside with nicely laid grey pavers. It creates a generous space for dining and sitting with family and friends. Protected from the prevailing wind we can enjoy this space in any weather.
On the kitchen side of the house there is a guest bedroom and bathroom and the muck room which allows access to the garage and has a great area to shower the dog, or mucky kiddos!
Across the home there are 3 bedrooms, one guest bedroom is ensuite, a library/office room, a full guest bathroom with a jetted tub and another bedroom.
From this hallway you enter the master suite through the 9ft tall solid wood doors. There is a cosy corner fireplace to reflect the finish in the great room. The windows are all over sized to take in all the views and create a light and airy space. The master bathroom has the repeating grey and white coloring warmed up by the black walnut cabinets. Separate vanity areas, a gorgeous deep soaker tub and an oversized walk in shower, with a handy glass cut out so we can reach in and get the water warm while we get ready.
The front door area backs BLM and has its own courtyard providing access to the casita/in-law suite which the owner uses as his office.
They just love the setting for their home and hope you enjoyed the tour.
See you at next year’s Tour of Homes and see what progress they make!
