Grass Valley house description

Come out of the city and stay in this beautiful custom log home in a gorgeous, park-like, 10 acre setting. Relax on either of the two veranda-like porches or nap in one of the hammocks as you listen to the stream in the background. After a day of site-seeing,
shopping, hiking, golfing, skiing, sledding, biking or just relaxing, soak in either the extra deep antique tub or enjoy the jets of the jacuzzi bathtub. Enjoy the new Sundance SPA in the back yard as you listen to the creek, watch the moon rise over the ridge or just bask in beautiful expanse of the country starlit night.

Hop on your bike for ride into the hills or along the paved country roads. Hike through the trails that you can access right behind the house.

Close to the snow -- an easy drive to any of the the nearby ski resorts (Sugar Bowl, Boreal and Donner Ski Ranch, Royal Gorge) snow parks (Yuba Gap, Kingvale and Soda Springs).

In Summer, watch your kids play in the swimming hole, jumping off the rope swing, or just gently soak your feet in the stream while quietly reading a book.

There are trout in the stream, trails to hike, wildflowers to enjoy. You'll feel as if you've come into a whole new world when you walk into this comfortable and beautiful log home.

Enjoy the local flavor of Grass Valley and Nevada City -- music festivals, street fairs, Farmer's Market, Bike races, Blue Grass Festival, World Festival, Celtic Festival, Wineries, Antiques, Golf, Historical center, Mountain biking, Kayaking, Fishing.

                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 1989

                          About the owner: I am a Cath Lab and ICU RN. Due to life circumstance, began vacation renting 2 of my homes a few years ago and find that I love it. It is a pleasure to share my unique homes. Thanks to all that come to them. I hope that all my guests enjoy them as much as I have.

                          Why the Owner Chose Grass Valley:
                          This was our family home. My husband and I built it. It is not a 'kit'. He designed it and with a good bit of blood, sweat and tears, it was built with the care of the quality craftsman that he is. We raised our son here. He grew up playing in the creek and hiking in the woods. He is now 25 and with the economy the way it is, renting this home to nice folks helps us finance his education. It is a lovely home in a lovely location. We hope you enjoy staying in it as much as we enjoyed living in it for all those years. Diane Foley Stevenson (OWNER)

                          The Unique Benefits at this House:
                          I love the creek and hiking in the woods. Follow the trail across the creek and up to the top of the property where you will enjoy a spectacular sunset. Walking into the house is like something magical. It really is a unique and special place to spend some well-deserved downtime.
