          Owner info

          Year Purchased: 1994

          About the owner: That's her. That's Madeline . . . wild, wacky, and wonderful. She loves this place and wants new friends to love it also. It was being surrounded by all the beautiful oak trees that attracted her to the property at first. Soon she realized how peaceful it can be in this secluded spot. Though it feels secluded, it is only 5 minutes to the Interstate 80 Corridor and all the attractions available in Northern California.

          Why the Owner Chose Auburn:
          Come visit Madeline's Hide-away and you will feel luxuriously tucked away in the woods.

          The Unique Benefits at this House:
          You will love the feeling of seclusion on a hillside among the wonderful oak trees. And yet it is only 5 minutes to Interstate 80 and access to all the great sites of Northern California. Because of the hillsides and roads curving back into the property, there is no freeway noise.
