Manager info

Year Purchased: 2007

About: I moved to Redding in 1979 and have loved living here for so many reasons...the beautiful mountains,Whiskeytown & Shasta Lakes,the Sacramento River flowing through town and all of the outdoor recreational activities available here. I began selling Real Estate in 1990 and decided that one day I would love to live by the river. My dream came true 3 years ago when I was blessed with the opportunity to purchase one of the most unique & 'ONE OF A KIND' properties in Redding. Now I love the opportunity to share it with others...I've been a Realtor since 1990 with Coldwell Banker C&C Properties and love to help people find their 'dream' property!

Why Redding:
The moment I drove down this 600 foot long driveway viewing the river I was mesmerized with this hidden jewell in the center of Redding. I knew I had to figure out a way to make it mine. I didn't realize at the time, that I would be making it available to others as a vacation rental. The more friends that came to visit were astounded at the views, privacy and uniqueness of the property,so I decided it would make a great vacation place for others to enjoy. I never tire of seeing Bald Eagles fly by, deer out in the pasture below and the train coming around the bend on the historic Diestlehorst trestle. It's a true gem!

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Walk, run, or bike to the River Trail System just up the block. Walk to Starbucks & local restaurants . Only 3 miles to Bethel Church. So many visitors love the convenient location, yet the feeling of being surrounded by nature. Bird lovers paradise! Bring your binoculars.
