French-inspired inside & out...YOUR romantic, Old World hilltop haven on 20 +/- acres awaits...

2 bedrooms + Office, 3 full baths, + detached 2-car garage + workshop, 2655 sq. ft.

If visions of aged plaster, Normandy-inspired architecture, and a petite cottage garden graced by lavender and rosemary like in Provence make you say oo-la-la, read on...as this tres charmant maison has all this and more -- including custom tumbled marble tiles w/ vintage French food ads adorning the kitchen, and another set of custom tiles in one of the TWO master baths featuring photos of Paris...the kitchen's copper vegetable sink even sports fleur-de-lis!

Designed by its interior designer owner as her personal residence, the southwest-facing hilltop setting of this 19+ acre parcel affords long-range views to the next county. Natural light fills this home whose inspiration is European Old World, both inside and out. Carefree landscaping amidst deer + jack rabbits, this tree-studded property is still in its natural state w/ ag/vineyard potential. Tranquility & PRIVACY abound!

Yet it's only a scenic 7-mile drive into town with movies, restaurants, and shops. Downtown and neighboring Nevada City offer upscale dining, art galleries, live theater, artisans, boutiques & antiques.

Quoted as a design expert in national media including Realtor.com, Parade, Bed, Bath & Beyond, Bob Villa.com, FoxNews.com, AOL Real Estate, Home Furnishings Assoc., et al., the seasoned interior designer/owner is now downsizing and relocating out of the area so many of the major furnishings are available for separate purchase (most of which were specifically purchased for this residence).

Price Just REDUCED to $975,000
