The areas that you might choose are varied and depend a lot on the price the you want to pay for a home. So ... I'd say the first decision is to define a general budget so that you and your agent know what and where to look.
As far as neighborhoods ... there are many, Gardnerville Ranchos, Ruhenstroth, Johnson Lane, Fish Springs, Chambers Field, Foothill, Pinenut and Topaz. all of these offer the types of property you describe. Those closest to town will provide the medical you seek.
You are invited to use our service at http://www.carsonvalleyland.listingbook.com
to search all these areas. If you'd like to have me create a personalized search please let me now the specifics and I'll be pleased to do so.
Good Luck in your search and hope you find the home you are looking for.
