Owner info

Year Purchased: 2008

About the owner: We both grew up in this area. We love the location of 'The Nest' We enjoy traveling, bike riding, scuba diving, boating, camping and spending time with family,

Why the Owner Chose Sacramento:
We love the charm of Old Town Fair Oaks. We jumped at the chance to buy in the Village. I grew up in the area and loved taking walks to the river. Now we are excited to take our children and grandchildren exploring on the American River Parkway. The park down the street has provided a wonderful place to take the grandchildren to feed the chickens, play at the playground and picnic. Each Christmas we go to the Village for the Christmas Tree lighting ceremony.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
One thing we have really enjoyed is sitting on the front deck in the warm summer months and listening to the concerts in the park. Every room in the house has lots of natural light. The downstairs is open and spacious and the large windows bring the outside in. It's difficult to describe the peace and serenity that this home offers. Open, airy, warm and inviting are just a few words that come to mind.There are so many cozy places in this home to curl up with a good book or just sit and visit. We enjoy warm summer months on the front porch and cool winter months in front of the fireplace. It's the perfect place when it's just the two of us or when the family comes to visit.
