Built in 1961
Nestled deep in the foothills near the banks of Folsom Lake sits this updated staycationer’s dream. This home has “good times” embedded in every nook and cranny so get your cocktail shaker and sunblock ready!
This 60’s Rancher feels all grown up when you walk in! Neutral laminate flooring runs throughout the kitchen, dining room, and bedrooms and chic accents like barn doors and crown molding have been added.
The kitchen boasts newer stainless appliances, plus under-cabinet lighting, display shelving, and cupboards, as well as a gorgeous granite counter with bar seating. I especially like the view of the expansive back deck (and beyond) from the kitchen window!
The kitchen overlooks a lovely sitting area with a beautiful floor-to-ceiling brick fireplace with gas insert and raised brick hearth. This space opens into a larger living room that is the perfect place for movies, games, relaxing, you name it.
A wooden beam runs the length of the cathedral ceiling and skylights sit on either side flooding the room with natural light. A large round window sits above bench seating and gives you a view of the trees out back. Two glass doors open up to the deck just outside – but more on that later!
The first sitting area off the kitchen is where you’ll find double glass-pane doors that open into an ideal office space. Next to the office is the laundry room with a stacked washer/dryer, storage cabinets and counter space, as well as a built-in ironing board!
From the laundry room, you’ll access the garage which is a car lover’s dream! Epoxy flooring and high-end built-in cabinets and workbench make this space more than just a place to park the car.
On the other side of the house, you’ll find the hallway leading to all bedrooms. Notice the two sliding barn doors that add a fun touch to your guest rooms. The first room on the left has been converted into a full closet “boudoir.” Hanging racks, drawers, and shelving line two walls for all your wardrobe needs.
All bedrooms come with mirrored closet doors creating a roomier feel, as well as providing full-length mirrors for everyone!
The master suite is light and airy and comes with access to the back deck. The en suite bath has a walk-in shower with unique chiseled irregular edge glass panels and stone floor.
Both the master bath and guest bath have granite counters and towel warmers. Once you live with these, you’ll never be able to go without them!
This back deck is definitely the pièce de résistance of this home! 1600+ sq ft of Trex® decking is your new favorite place to hang. The main area is large enough for multiple tables and seating. A slightly sunken conversation area seats several people and is lined above with flower boxes for an extra pop of color. And literally every spot on this deck has a gorgeous view of the trees and “valley” beyond.
A side gate leads out to the “front” yard. Out here you’ll find a beautifully landscaped area surrounded by trees. You can usually find deer lounging in the shade most afternoons. I think they like the sound of the fountain down below. I know I do!
Around back you’ll find two garden sheds, perfect for landscaping tools and more. When the afternoon light hits back here, it’s the most picturesque back area I’ve ever seen. Lush greenery and rocky outcroppings provide a lovely backdrop for the windows lining this side of the home.
Just down the road from top-rated schools, several parks, plus shopping and dining. And let’s not forget about all Folsom Lake has to offer!
Between the location, the updates and amenities, and that view, this is the perfect place to kick up your heels, sip some lemonade, and enjoy the sweet serenade of nature.
