Atascadero house description

The Central Coast is the 'undiscovered' gem of California. This area is reminiscent of Tuscany (by the sea). Golden Hills, thousands of acres of vineyards, majestic seas and sleepy beach towns, an up-and-coming 'foodie' region, with artisan olive oil, cheese-making, lavender farms and many fine wineries and tasting rooms. The area is renowned for the recreation available, with two State Parks nearby, beach and lake activities, horseback riding, hiking, and several notable golf courses. Lots of California history with out-of-the-way places to discover and enjoy.

Our home is located in the western hills of Atascadero, ten miles from the widely acclaimed Paso Robles Wine region, and twenty miles from the cities of San Luis Obispo (CalPoly University) and Morro Bay. Hearst Castle is a beautiful 40 minute drive. We are mid-way between Los Angeles and San Francisco, and about a two hour drive to either Santa Barbara, Monterey or San Jose/'Silicon Valley'.

Our home sits on a hill, surrounded by hundred year old oak trees, with extensive decking and patios overlooking the western hills and colorful sunsets. The property consists of approximately three acres with private drive, and a fenced pasture surrounding the front of the house currently used for horses.

While the area is quite beautiful, we have taken a special interest in making our home not only comfortable for us - but for our guests, too. The house is approximately 3,300 square feet with 3 bedrooms and a master suite, three bathrooms, an office/art room, and open great room, overlooked by a spacious and gourmet kitchen. French doors line the western walls of the house, offering access to the exterior decks and beautiful views. Much of your time will be spent outdoors on the decks, reading a good book, listening to music (outdoor speakers), or visiting and dining al fresco.

The master suite is located at the extreme south end of the house perched on the edge of the hill overlooking the golden hills. French doors provide access to a small, secluded patio and expansive views. The suite has recently been redecorated in tones of blue/grey with a built in gas fireplace, Brass king-sized bed, and a 42' inch wall-mounted plasma TV with satellite, DVD,and IPOD dock/speaker. This bed as all others in the house are made with luxury linens and crisp, fresh duvet covers. The bathroom has a jetted tub, shower, pedestal sinks and custom tile. We love this room and have taken care to make it a special retreat.

Next is a second and third bedrooms with queen-sized beds and view out over the front garden roses and rosemary plants. One room has satellite TV, too. A second bath with tub and shower is located across the hall with easy access to these two bedrooms.

Further down the hall is the true entry to the house, with the great room and office on a step-down level. The great room and office both face west and open with french doors onto their private decks. The office has desk space and office equipment. This room is also used as our stained glass art studio - so there may be a project or two in process on the work table. The house has wireless inter net both in the office and throughout. The great room is covered with west-facing windows and french doors and offers relaxing and inspired views. The room is furnished with a leather sectional, big screen TV, DVD,and stereo system. A see-through gas fireplace connects the great room with the dining room.

The kitchen is a cook's dream with granite counter tops and stainless appliances. The cabinetry has been painted by a local artist with trompe l'oil figures on several of the cabinet doors. The kitchen is stocked with an array of spices, etc. and we keep condiments in the fridge to avoid you needing to stock up for your visit. It's a fun and colorful kitchen well-suited to entertaining and family gatherings.

Further down the hall from the kitchen is the fourth bedroom and bathroom. We call this our 'french bedroom' in that is is painted a lovely yellow color and is decorated with memorabilia from our many trips to the Provence region of France. The room has a queen-sized bed and large window which look out on the front garden and fountain. It's a very pretty view with the golden hills and craggy oaks in the distance.

It's a beautiful home and would serve wonderfully for a family get-away, or as a great couples trip to explore the region. Please be aware that this property requires 'animal lovers' as we have resident chickens, 3 outdoor cats and a few horses on the property. They are fed and cared for, but will make their presence known by their friendly personalities.

Whether you seek peace and solitude or an activity-crammed vacation, this area delivers!

                  Car: Necessary

                  We are located in the heart of the Paso Robles Wine Country - approximately 5 miles to Vineyard Drive where Wineries are located. Paso Robles was recently named one of the hottest wine destinations by Sunset magazine and Wine Enthusiast. There are over 200 wineries in the area, with events planned for most every weekend of the year.

                  Hearst Castle is located on the coast, about 40 miles from our home. The castle is amazing and a must see! Where there you can spend the day at San Simeon Beach or exploring the lovely town of Cambria.

                  We are 25 miles from the historic town of San Luis Obispo with it's downtown shopping district, renowned Farmers' Market, and the CalPoly Performing Arts Center. The town offers great hiking and biking on the peaks that surround the city - such as 'Bishop's Peak' and others.

                  A short and scenic 20 mile drive takes you to Morro Bay and other beach towns for delicious, fresh seafood, beach walks, fishing, paddle boarding, sailing, kayaking, whale watching, etc. There are many beautiful and pristine spots along this stretch of coastline for tide pooling, beach hikes and picnicking.

                  Pismo Beach is a bit further south about 35 miles and offers another great beach with camping, exploring the Pismo Dunes, fine restaurants, and a large Prime Retail Shopping Outlet.

                  The San Luis Obispo area is host to many, many regional events - contact us for event information during your expected travel dates.

                   

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 1998

                  About the owner: Yule and I raised our family in this home and while it is much too large for us 'empty nesters' we just can't seem to part with it. We now use it as our vacation home and look forward to sharing it with others. We have lived in the area for over 20 years and can share our many ideas for places to enjoy wonderful food, great wines, and special places to see and experience the natural beauty of the area.

                  Why the Owner Chose Atascadero:
                  We fell in love with the house when we first saw it and have tinkered with it over the years to make it even more special. The house merges beautifully with nature with over 2000 sq. ft. of outdoor decking and patios. The decks are set up for entertaining with outdoor tables, chairs, loungers, twinkle lighting and BBQ. The house is walled with windows overlooking the horses in the pasture and the western hills, and offers plenty of sunshine and space for privacy. While you feel secluded and private at the property, in reality you're only a 5 minute drive into town or to the first of many wineries. We also like the bright open-feeling of the home.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  It's a beautiful property located on a hill of rolling oaks with convenient access to wine country, lots of walking trails in the hills around the house and easy access to the other cities and the beaches.
