Property description

Gold Country Deck House has a charming private master bedroom with its own private bath and view. Eat out or in -- a fully furnished kitchen -- everything from a cork pull to a gas BBQ. Take in the hundred-mile view to the west -- end the day with a magnificent sunset. On cool nights, brush off the chill with a fire in the wood stove. Ideally suited for a secluded getaway, a jumping off point to explore wine country and historic Coloma, or kicking back with friends on the decks.

Built to take advantage of natural light, the Deck House kitchen's eating nook fills with morning sun. Step out of the kitchen to a wood deck and majestic oak trees that shade the south side of the Deck House. Built to take advantage of the view, the second deck extends the length of the house to the west overlooking the rolling foothills; on a clear day you can see the coastal range, Mount Diablo and the Sutter Buttes. Relax in the living room by the wood stove, watch TV, listen to music, or simply enjoy the view in the peace and quiet.

Master bedroom with a four-poster queen bed and its own bath has sliding doors that open to the west deck and views of the Sierra foothills; antique Pine furniture and TV. Den with sliding door can sleep two on a queen futon Sofabed or floor futons.

Downstairs is a private bedroom and bathroom, TV and recliner for relaxing. Ping pong Table downstairs in Rec Room for recreation, opens to the back lawn and picnic area.

Located on a quiet street with ample parking five minutes from downtown Placerville, you will enjoy the country ambience and secluded feeling with great views.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1998

About the owner: High school sweethearts, we met at El Dorado High School in Placerville. We purchased the Deck House from my parents who built the home in 1970 and remodeled it for a vacation rental. Always a favorite for the extended family, nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles, cousins, grandchildren, everyone loves coming to Gold Country Deck House.

Why the Owner Chose Placerville:
My Dad loves to tell the story of finding a contractor to build this house at the price he could afford. Dad hauled in the rocks for the fireplace and stone walls from a nearby quarry. The large rocks with the manzanita tree were hauled in Dad's pickup truck and the truck skimmed the roadway with its overweight load. Dad makes sure everyone knows how he situated the home on the property to take advantage of the shade of the oak trees in summertime, morning sun and the views year round. The Deck House includes family history.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We love sunsets at Gold Country Deck House. We love the proximity to historic downtown Placerville and its shops, antique stores, art galleries and cafes. We love the country ambiance, the secluded natural setting. In summertime, we drive to the American River to swim, have BBQ's, drive to Coloma to Marshall Gold Discovery Park. September begins Apple Hill season and visits to orchards, wineries and farms. November finds us visiting the Christmas Tree Farms. December we love wood fires and proximity to cross country skiing and Lake Tahoe downhill skiing. In spring, Daffodil Hill makes a spectacular display. Always there are farms and vendors of locally grown fruits and vegetables.
