Monterra in Minden. This exclusive subdivision in the heart of Minden Nevada began as a unique development by Syncon Homes. Building began during the heyday of the building boom in the mid 2000’s and the homes were elegant, expensive and over-the-top in all aspects. The models were beautiful but they tended to be very large for the majority of homebuyers with over 3000 sq. feet with many luxurious amenities. It was not long before the economy came crashing to a halt and the homes in Monterra did the same. The lots remained empty and the builder eventually had to declare bankruptcy.
Today there is a resurrection of construction with some limited homes going up on the lots. Many one and two story homes are finding new home buyers with floor plans of more reasonable sizes. The location of Monterra is within blocks of downtown Minden and the casinos, shopping, restaurants and local businesses. The Minden Elementary school is nearby and very convenient for families with school-age children.
