The pictures don't do this unique and style-laden property justice -- truly a MUST-SEE listing to fully appreciate in-person what this custom-designed residence with Old World inspiration has to offer...inside & out.
2 bdms, Office, 3 baths, 2655 sq. ft., sitting atop a 19.08 acre parcel with "see forever" views to the next county -- you can watch the fireworks in Auburn...20 miles away!
The most peaceful of settings: a natural tree-studded property that also has vineyard/ag potential, forested at base of property, all acreage in its natural state and features majestic oaks, cedars, fir, pines, and Manzanita. Excellent well with 2500 gallon holding tank, multiple ingress/egress routes.
Wind your way up, up, UP the 1/4-mile long private gravel driveway (which you're welcome to pave if desired) and as you park your vehicle and step outside for the first time, your pulse will quicken when you take in THE VIEW firsthand -- and as the house was site-designed by its interior designer owner, virtually all major rooms of the home take full advantage of this million dollar vantage point as well (so, if you think about it, the house is really "free"!).
Stargaze while lying in bed in this top-of-the-world spot amidst unfettered peace & privacy -- feels remote, but neighbors are relatively nearby and it's only a 7-mile drive to shops, restaurants, services. About 15 min. drive to Grass Valley's charming 1850's downtown. The natural light is golden in the morning, often with pink-hued clouds, and the home's southwest orientation makes sunsets a nightly show as well.
Colorful + tasteful interior has distinctive elements throughout incl iron, stone + copper, all of which are either antique or vintage-inspired, incl. custom tiles she designed. Chef’s kitchen (6-burner cast iron range from England w/ 2 ovens incl. convection), 2 fireplaces, formal D/R, ambiance galore amidst functionality incl his & hers en suites: TWO full baths off the Master each w/ own walk-in closet. 1-story guest wing also has bedroom (currently "the library") w/ own en suite. Peaceful courtyard offers outdoor dining + eastern views toward Tahoe. Upgrades incl 2" x 6" construction, Cat 5 (Ethernet) wiring (but wireless broadband works Great in this hilltop locale), upgraded insulation, house is bolted to foundation, hand-troweled walls, 9’ ceilings and 6" deep baseboards.
Carefree landscaping features rustic railroad ties, cedar mulch (no watering or mowing!), a cottage garden in front and planter boxes on other sides of the house. Hummingbirds and butterflies abound, soon it will be time for the dragonflies to reappear for their annual visit.
2-car detached garage has adjacent sheetrocked workshop which is nestled under the oaks, generously sized with its own Dutch-door entrance, 3 awning windows, and outlets galore. Ideal for artisan, yoga, woodworking, craft studio or.....?
While the homeowner relishes the home's current "aged" appearance which adds significantly to the overall European ambiance, this rendering is being provided so you can envision a freshly painted option.
Overall this unique property abounds with POSSIBILITIES -- both for the land as well as potential expansion: build a granny unit (up to 1200 sq. ft.), a barn, outbuildings, cultivate the ag potential (irrigation already stubbed in), treehouse....OR....?
Good news: price Just REDUCED to $975,000 (owner is also downsizing so most major furnishings available for purchase)
