Close enough to Taylor Road to be convenient and easy to find, yet tucked away and secluded enough to feel totally private. An iron gate makes an impression as you pull into the driveway. Notice the grapevines and fruit trees as you head up to the house.
As far as farmhouses go, this one is definitely on its own level. Sophisticated architecture still feels as effortless as a light breeze. Roses and Japanese maples surround the front porch and provide a lovely entrance. The porch is big enough to lounge comfortably.
Inside, a great room concept keeps everyone in the mix. Enjoy plenty of room for an entertainment area, reading nook, dining room, and more.
The kitchen has warm cabinetry, granite countertops, and stainless appliances. A built-in “buffet” runs along one wall and is perfect for storing china or just providing a bit more counter space.
Laminate flooring runs throughout the living/dining/kitchen area so care and maintenance is easy in these heavy traffic areas.
A large laundry room sits off the kitchen and has plenty of large cabinets for all kinds of storage. A full bath sits just beyond, in the “mudroom” area.
At the top of the stairs is an open space ideal for separate entertainment or an office nook. The balcony overlooks the garden patio and mixed fruit orchard out front. See if you can spot the apple, plums, and other delicious delights out there!
The owner’s suite is spacious, with a large closet, and private en suite bath. Sliding doors lead out onto the grandiose balcony that can fit several seating/lounge vignettes. From the driveway, this feature gives the home a slight “New Orleans” feel that works quite well with the landscape.
A large, raised garden patio is surrounded by flowers and trees. Around the back of the garden shed you’ll find the mandarin orchard, home to a whopping 130 trees! You will find several planter boxes throughout the orchard, filled with dahlias, sunflowers, and more.
A second, larger garden shed has an open storage area perfect for storing a small tractor and other large gardening supplies. The bees absolutely love the lavender hyssop out here!
Beyond the shed is a small grove of persimmon trees and if you turn back toward the house you’ll find the pond. It is common for the 6 ducks on the property to jump in and splash around.
On one edge of the pond is the two-car garage, with ample workspace and storage. Beyond that is the barn, which is large enough to host a party, if you’re so inclined! Or you can just use it for farm equipment! It’s a good place to keep chicken supplies, as there is a chicken coop on the other side. Farm fresh eggs anyone?
Perfectly located between Loomis and Newcastle, so you’re never too far from the things you need. If peace and harmony with nature are your thing, but you also want somewhere to host a great get-together, this is the house for you.
