Year Purchased: 2008
About the owner: My wife & I are native Californians, born & raised in the Central Valley & Bay Area, respectively. Our daughter & son-in-law moved to the Grass Valley area a few years ago & when visiting we fell in love with the area also. We now have our youngest grandson, born in May, 2009, & our newest granddaughter, born in May, 2011, to bring us here for numerous visits. We purchased our vacation home on Kate Hayes St. in April, 2008 & enjoyed so much furnishing & decorating it that friends suggested we share it as a vacation rental with others. We were reluctant at first but found that it has worked out so well & folks that have stayed have been so nice & appreciative of the home and all the surrounding area has to offer.
Why the Owner Chose Grass Valley: There are so many activities & fun things to do in & around the beautiful Grass Valley/Nevada City area that it would be impossible to list them all. The Cornish & Victorian Christmas, Car shows, farmers markets, theatre, rivers, lakes, excellent wineries, Empire Mine State Park, etc., etc., etc. We originally purchased the home for our own enjoyment & for a place to 'getaway' & enjoy family & our Grandson, Trye, born May, 2009 & our newest Granddaughter, Kyla, born May 2011. We've also found that we really enjoy sharing our home with others.
The Unique Benefits at this House: Our Victorian home is exceptionally comfortable, especially considering its' age. Built in 1891, it has been meticulously restored & we have decorated & furnished our home to help preserve its' unique heritage & to make it just as comfortable for our guests. We especially enjoy sitting out on the front porch & chatting with neighbors as they walk by on our narrow little lane, Kate Hayes St., named after the famous Irish Opera singer, Catherine Hayes, who was born in Limerick, Ireland in 1818 & enjoyed an illustrious career singing & performing around the world & in the Gold Country & particularly in the Grass Valley/Nevada City area. So, as you can tell it was a 'no-brainer' to name our home 'Kate's Place'!!!!
