New, spacious, private house located on top of a ridge on beautiful Lake Shasta. The view from the front porch (and every window on the house) is devoid of any evidence of civilization. From the elegant homes front steps you can ride your bike down the seemingly private dirt road to Hirz Bay, whose only tribute to humans is the stone remnants of a bridge built in 1930. Bring the kayaks to this bay and you will find yourself in the McCloud arm of the lake. This world famous fishing lake of course joins the main areas of Shasta Lake where you will finally meet up with other boaters. Make sure to bring your ski boat as well. There is lots of parking at the house and the boat ramp is only 4.5 miles away.
More about the house. It is a 2000 square foot house that was completed in 2010, featuring three bedrooms plus a loft. 2.5 bathrooms, large living room, dining room with soaring ceiling and huge windows with views to match. Decked out kitchen with plenty of counter space. The home was purpose built as a high-end vacation home that self-generates it's own power through an extensive solar system. Downstairs there is a bedroom with a queen sized bed and a full bathroom. Upstairs is a master bedroom with a Sleep Number queen sized bed and it's own full bath. The third bedroom with a trundle bed (two twin sized beds) and a loft with a futon and space for the little ones and a half bathroom are also located upstairs. The living room also boast home theater equipment including built-in speakers, powered sub-woofer, high-definition satellite, and a blue-ray DVD. There is the small town of Lakehead with stores, gas, and restaurants only about a 10 minute drive North and a 25 minute drive South gets you to Redding.
Although it is secluded and you feel like you are very remote, conveniences are not that far away - you just can't hear or see them.

About the owner: After being born and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area, we were always attracted to the beauty and recreation at Shasta Lake. We spent many summers at this beautiful lake and fell in love with it so much that we moved the family here six years ago and built our dream vacation home. We would like to share our home with you so that you can enjoy the beautiful surroundings of this paradise and make wonderful family memories of your own.
Why the Owner Chose Lakehead: It is secluded in beautiful surroundings with the lake a short distance down a seemingly private road. There is so much natural beauty and recreational opportunities within short distances. There is plenty of parking for all of your toys. Bring your boat(s), ATV, mountain bikes, and hiking gear to visit the hidden waterfalls. Although many people would never know, this is an off-grid home that generates all of it's own electricity - yet has all of the amenities (i.e. high speed internet, satellite TV).
The Unique Benefits at this House: Enjoy a home which is driving distance to everything good yet nothing in seeing or hearing distance expect peaceful nature.
