Updated three bedroom, two bath, 2 car garage ranch style house in the gold country/wine country region of Calaveras county. Located at the far rear corner of a subdivision this home on a .36 acre parcel is bordered on the east by a 100+ acre cattle grazing land, on the north by a parcel with Native American grinding rocks on it (no building allowed). The area is in rolling grassy oak studded hills with vineyards visible in three directions. Convenient location midway between the town of Murphys (The Queen of the Sierra, with dozens of wineries/tasting rooms, restaurants, shops, events and services) and the city of Angels Camp (with it's gold rush era downtown, art deco movie theater, grocery and drug stores, Greenhorn Creek golfing, etc). Close to lakes, rivers, hiking, biking, pine forests, skiing, and any number of other outdoor recreation/activities. Elevation is around 1850', which is quite often above the valley fog, yet just below the snow line. About 1.5 hours drive to Sacramento, 2.5-3 hours to San Francisco, 2.5 hours to Yosemite.
The house itself is modestly sized, around 1150 square feet, newly applied stucco exterior, newer metal roof, all new windows and both interior and exterior doors. The attached garage is about 20'X20' with a new 14'X7' sectional door with an opener. Laundry and water heater are in the garage along with some workbenches and storage cabinets. Recent 200 amp Square D electrical panel and PG&E drop from the power pole. Water heater, clothes drier, kitchen range and furnace are all propane.
The interior of the home is about 90% remodeled and has a modern/contemporary feel with exposed concrete floors, Ikea kitchen cabinetry, concrete countertops, recessed lighting, flush mount ceiling fans, etc. Full guest bath has a new tub and fixtures with custom slate tile surround, modern light and exhaust fan, low flow toilet and a decent sized sink/vanity. The two secondary bedrooms occupy one side of a hallway, while the master bed/bath is on the other side. Master bath has a modern Ikea wall mounted vanity and a low flow toilet, modern light and exhaust fan, with the original fiberglass shower still in use. The living area is on the back side of the house and takes advantage of the views into the generous back yard and the distant views beyond, including hills, trees, wildlife, vineyards, goats, cattle, geese and a natural spring in the pasture land. The landscaping is a pretty open slate for the new owners ideas, although there are oak, maple, locust, fruitless mulberry, plum, apple and cherry trees along with a small bamboo "grove" and some Vinca ground cover, daffodils, iris, rosemary and a large fenced backyard that we irrigated and maintained as a lawn.
This house is in the final stages of a complete remodel, but we are offering it for sale as-is to see if anyone is interested in taking ownership now for a reduced price. A few items that we thought would need to be done are: An HVAC system, currently there is no forced air system, there is a propane wall furnace that works great and we used an evaporative cooler, which also was good 95% of the time. Our plan was to install a modern, efficient, ductless mini-split type system. Also, a concrete patio outside of the rear door, currently its graveled between the door and the lawn. Interior paint is several years old and should be re-done, but we figure you'd like to pick your own colors. The kitchen has custom concrete counter tops, but the largest piece for the peninsula was never made, so there's a "temporary" butcher block counter top there. The house is totally comfortable and livable the way it is, and the remaining renovations could easily be completed over time while living in the house.
We are not currently under contract with a realtor and are offering this by owner. Asking $275,000 as is, price will go up as renovations continue. If you feel these projects are something you could tackle and would like to purchase now at a reduced price, please call or text Paul at show contact info
