The Property

MULTIPLE OFFERS PRODUCED!  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.

The Community

COLFAX, CA. Situated on the borders of the Tahoe National Forest and just one hour from Lake Tahoe itself, the small town of Colfax, California is big on stories. From garnering a mention in Jules Verne’s Around the World in Eighty Days to being the site of the first stagecoach robbery during the Gold Rush, Colfax has a rich and interesting history. Named in honor of Speaker of the House and later Vice President Schuyler Colfax, the city is now home to nearly 2,000 people who enjoy the intersection of wild west history and easy access to Sacramento, Lake Tahoe, and Rollins Lake.

Although the property is just a short drive from Lake Tahoe, it is within 5 minutes of another outdoor enthusiast’s dream: Rollins Lake. With 26 miles of shoreline and endless opportunities for fishing, boating and camping, Rollins Lake provides a place for relaxation and recreation as well as acting as a reservoir for hydropower, irrigation and municipal water. Whether you prefer fishing for trout and bass, water skiing and wakeboarding, kayaking and canoeing or simply relaxing on a pontoon boat, Colfax provides ample opportunities to enjoy the Northern California lifestyle.

The Location

PLACER COUNTY, CA. With approximately 350,000 residents spread across the Sacramento Valley and Sierra Nevada region, the County of Placer (as it is known officially) stretches 65 miles from the suburbs of Sacramento to the shores of Lake Tahoe. While the gold in the hills (and the sand and the ground) brought the first rush of residents, it was quickly noticed that the soil here, at the foothills of the mountains, was very fertile. Fruit farming became one of the chief economic activities of the region, along with quarrying granite, ranching and farming.

Today, the County of Placer is home to companies such as Kaiser Permanente, Hewlett-Packard, and the Union Pacific Railroad who employ a large portion of the county’s residents. It is served by three general aviation airports (Lincoln Regional, Auburn, and Truckee-Tahoe) for those who prefer to access the region via private aircraft, and is popular not only for the recreation around Lake Tahoe, but for the incredible beauty of the Eldorado and Tahoe National Forests that are located herein.
