Owner info

Year Purchased: 1995

About the owner: I moved our family from the city to the country. We love the variety of trees and animals which live in the Sierra foothills. Below the snow line, above the fog, out of the rat race! We love animals both domestic and wild. I can enjoy riding my horses on my own land with over 5 miles of groomed trails. It's an oasis of privacy and beauty which is kept natural.

Why the Owner Chose Placerville:
In a word, VARIETY! On 100 acres you will see a Norwegian Pine forest, lush green meadows of wildflowers dotted with giant Oak trees, ridgetop vistas with 360 degree views, and Christmas tree forests of white fir and cedar.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
Just 9 miles from Placerville it's convenient and private. The area is not heavily populated, surrounded by BLM land, local orchards, farms and vineyards. It's a jewel we have perfected for almost 20 years.
