RUSTIC ELEGANCE—Do those words go together? Come see this American Country Castle and you will say “yes”! This 5 bedroom, 3 bath+2 half baths delightful 9 fenced acres invites you in by way of a lovely curving circular drive. Step out and feel the silence and clean breezes beneath a huge sky view …and things only get better from there! Enter the terra cotta tiled foyer, lift your eyes to see the cathedral knotty pine ceilings with exposed beam design (carried throughout the home), and look across to the sunken fireside room that invites you to absorb the peace of nature you see fully from the floor to ceiling windows with valley to mountain views, with balcony entry. Next note the formal dining room, delightful kitchen with breakfast nook and the ample laundry—and wait until you see the pool and covered, restful, tiled patio! And we havent begun to describe the Master Living Suite that fills the second floor! Outside theres a barn with loft, playground with sunken trampoline, professional quality dog kennel, chicken castle (not coop), 3 Trane AC units and lovely landscaping all auto-maintained! And so much more…
The English may have their country cottages and castles, but they have nothing over on this home! Here you inherit walls soaked with laughter and fragranced with the joy of the family that made so many memories here, the pool that still chuckles over the antics of the friends and family that gathered to celebrate and enjoy one another within its sparkling blue waters set off by the wrought iron safety fencing that encircles it and leads on around the homes balconies. Even the pool pump is tastefully hidden, as everything is planned here, within a brick sidewall of its own, with easy access but out of view.
The floor plan is designed for family living at its best with a tiled entry that brings you to the step-down fireside room with floor-to-ceiling views of the lovely Mt. Lassen range and the oak-lavished valley from here to there! Look to your right and see the formal dining room (and those amazing views from every room!) then walk down the hall to the kitchen. Notice the first of 2 walk-in pantries as you progress, and then the lovely dining bar off the breakfast nook in a spacious kitchen designed with easy pool access. Note the chefs delight island and built-ins, and counter space….ahhhh, spa-a-a-a-ace!
And what does an entertainer hope for when a pool party is going on? Guest comfort and personal ease so all can enjoy! Here you have entry from the pool/patio to the lovely serving area, or a second entry to the half- bath off the laundry. Did we mention the covered parking spaces that lead directly into the kitchen and walk-in pantry( by way of the laundry ) so those groceries can almost put themselves away?
Four lovely bedrooms downstairs with 2 full bathrooms (double sinks and castle-size tile showers!), walk-in closets, linen and hall closets, too much to mention. And we havent even started to describe the Master Bedroom Living Suite with the cathedral ceilings carried through above the study (with custom full-wall bookshelves and cabinets on opposing walls) , the bedroom fireplace, lovely garden jetted tub where you can survey the scene over the top of the proud oaks whose domain this is. There is also the huge ( double) tile shower! And all rooms with indescribable views…all, that is, except for the master walk-in closet, as big as a room in its own right, which has an organizer custom-designed for each item you would want to store there. The Master Living Suite features not only the bath with garden tub and custom tile and double sinks, double shower bathroom, but entrance to the front balcony or to the back balcony from either the bedroom or adjoining writers atelier or lodge-like sanctuary for peaceful meditation. And these details are only enhanced by the simpler ones, like the kitchenette adjoining the study, and the laundry area, so nothing needs be carried downstairs. Words fail this American Country Castle. Come see for yourself and find Home.
