169 Aeolia Dr. Auburn
With timeless design and an abundance of character, this iconic craftsman is a treasure trove of rare details and awe-inspiring views of American River Canyon. Thoughtfully updated to welcome generations, blending vintage charm with modern comfort while keeping the essence of the early 19th century alive.
The main floor sits on the “entry level” of the home and has everything you need for day-to-day living. A large spacious foyer welcomes guests into the kitchen.
This is a unique space with room for a large breakfast table and then some. Enjoy the professional appliances including a 6-burner oven and 19 ft³ single-door fridge and freezer. The garden window over the sink plus two large glass doors provide a lovely view of the deck just outside – a wonderful spot to wake up with your morning coffee.
Gather everyone around the bespoke wooden table made from local cedar that fits 10 people comfortably. Aged for two years before being built just for this room, it is the perfect combination of function and beauty.
Natural light floods your sitting room through the picture window with an unencumbered view of the canyon. Grab a good book, take an afternoon snooze, or simply enjoy the landscape. Stay comfy on chilly nights with the Thelin “pot-belly” pellet stove.
Relax with guests in your elegant living room with a sophisticated coffered ceiling and cozy fireplace. From here you have access to the deck just outside… The ideal spot to enjoy the sunset, trust me.
A main floor owner’s suite sits off the living room, with a walk-through closet (yes you read that right!) and its own connected office space. Two guest rooms on the other side of the house share a full bath with walk-in shower, plus a “garden” room with outside access.
Upstairs is the second owner’s suite – a roomy sanctuary with multiple nooks for reading/office, a walk-in closet, and views for days. You’ll feel like you’re sleeping among the clouds! An attached bath has dual sinks, spacious walk-in shower, and a luxurious jetted tub.
A large guest bedroom can fit multiple beds plus room for a sitting area. Find a fully-lined cedar closet in the hallway to keep your winter wardrobe safe.
On the lowest level you’ll find a large open den that is perfect for watching the big game, hosting game nights, or just having a quiet place to escape for a bit. Make room for extra overnight visitors with the Murphy bed hiding along the wall!
Mix up a few cocktails at the deco-style bar and have a party! You won’t have to worry about getting chilly down here with a wood stove to warm things up.
Movie nights will be unlike any others in your private theater room. Complete with vintage theater seats from San Francisco, projector, and big screen, all you’ll need to do is pop some popcorn and pick the flick!
A Large brick patio rests under the shade of a tall tree, creating a peaceful escape behind the house. Nearby, you can get crafty in the workshop/office/studio attached to the two-car garage.
Take a stroll through your own orchard and enjoy the view from your kitchen deck. Or take a glass of wine down to the recently built gazebo and unwind. The views out here are both humbling and inspirational while you relish the summer orchestra of birds & rustling leaves.
Experience the luxury of living in Auburn’s most sought-after neighborhood. It’s a nature lover’s paradise rich with misty morning walks on trails that lead all the way to Tahoe. Minutes from town with art, culture, food, and drink plus a year-round farmers market and more.
