Property description

The Stage Coach Stop was built in 1872 by a man named Petri Cola. He and his wife were very involved and well-liked by the town’s people of Placerville, “Old Hangtown”. There were two mine shafts on the property (gold and diamond) and it also had a saw mill on site at one time. The house and property were used in the 1997 Stephen Baldwin movie; Mr. Murder, and the grounds are a crowd favorite in the annual Placerville Garden Tour, showcasing three water features, including Koi ponds and waterfalls. The house is a 2400 sq. ft., two level home with a 1000 sq. ft. multi-level back deck overlooking Weber Creek (which is known by all local gold panners and trout fishermen) The deck is perfect for morning coffee, outdoor dining and cocktails. While enjoying the view, check out the remarkable year-round wildlife that this 7 acre protected habitat maintains, including River Otters, Raccoons, Deer, Fox, Ducks, Red Tail Hawks, Great Blue Herons, Belted King Fishers, Hummingbirds, Rainbow Trout, Crawdads, Frogs, and Dragonflies. Continue to explore the grounds which include a creek side outdoor wine bar, rustic dining area and fireplace, great for winetasting and family barbeques. Cross the covered foot bridge to a grassy area, perfect for picnics and afternoon naps. The property also has several perfect creekside areas for anyone that loves to fall asleep in nature to the sound of flowing water. Two gazebos are on site, one accessible by a bridge, located on an island, the other is nestled in majestic trees, overlooking the view, both perfect for relaxing and taking it all in.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1999

About the owner: Moving from Miami, FL in 1999, we were looking for a place that was near the city, but secluded and away from it all. We really wanted to be close to the coast, but also close to the ski resorts. We love river rafting, camping,wine tasting and the great outdoors, and were blessed to find this unique, historic, hidden treasure, tucked away in our own private vacation retreat!
