The second thing you notice is a comfortable home with high quality finishes and furnishings with plenty of room for everyone in your large group of family and friends.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1996

About the owner: Eileen and David have had many years of enjoyment at this serene location with family and friends. Recently, all our children, grandchildren and ourselves have moved out of state and it is more difficult for us to spend time at the property, so we have decided to share this unique place with others.

Why the Owner Chose Nevada City:
The Deardorfs found this perfect lakefront lot with boating access after years of searching all over Northern California. The house was designed by the owners and was custom built to maximize lake views and family fun.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Lake view, lake/boat access, private, cozy and comfortable. Three levels for different activities, family gatherings or privacy. Completely equipped kitchen to prepare group meals.
