The Property

MARKETED @ $3.8 MILLION (inquire for details).  Sited on 125 acres of pristine woodlands between Sacramento and Lake Tahoe, this 5-parcel estate offers an appealing blend of elegance and rusticity. With endless outdoor space and the ability to subdivide into 8 parcels, the Property is equally suitable as a family retreat or for residential development – and the location, just 18 minutes by car from Auburn Municipal airport, makes commuting via private plane or helicopter from the Bay Area a breeze.

The serene atmosphere and exceptional mountain views are complemented by miles of trails ideal for running, ATVs, or horseback riding, with scenic overlooks that highlight the beauty of the surrounding landscape. A full suite of equestrian amenities, including paddocks, an outdoor training area, and a barn with 4 turnout pens are located just south of the main residence. There is also a 2,000-sf workshop ideal for woodworking, crafting, or large vehicle storage.

The custom-built home offers 4 bedrooms, 3 full and 2 half baths in 4,104 sf. Interior finishes are casually elegant, with exposed wood beams, wood flooring and stone accents. The home was made for family gatherings, with a large formal dining room, spacious living room with fireplace, and a family room with space for billiards. The chef’s kitchen (framed by a beautiful stone archway) opens onto a cozy back patio with lounging and covered dining areas overlooking a manicured lawn with meticulously maintained landscaping and mature trees.

Private areas include a handsome study, and well-apportioned bedrooms featuring warm woods and windows overlooking the beautiful grounds.

A separate guesthouse offers privacy for out-of-town visitors, or can serve as caretaker’s quarters; the 1,140-sf dwelling offers 2 bedrooms and 1 full bath.
