Auburn estate description

Words will escape you when you drive through the entrance of this breathtaking property. This beautiful 20 acre estate is unlike anything you will find in the sierra foothills or even the state of California. Custom home built in a New England style begs enjoyment and relaxation. Enjoy sitting on the covered porch overlooking a pristine landscaped pond and listen to fits of laughter as your friends and family jump from the dock and splash around in the crisp water. Relax in the garden with a good book or get some exercise on a hike or a bike ride and catch a glimpse of the Bear River. Stop and nuzzle velvety noses along the way (this is a horse property) or pick a few blackberries and bake a pie in a beautiful cook's kitchen. Get the competitive juices flowing with a game of croquet on the manicured back lawn or head to the horseshoe pit. Unwind by the fire or hot tub and feel as if you were transported to a spa. Take an ultra refreshing outdoor shower and you won’t be disappointed!
Feeling Adventurous? Try wine tasting at Mount Vernon Winery or visit historic Old Town Auburn Nevada City or Lake Tahoe. Breathtaking hikes and top notch skiing is a mere hour drive on Interstate 80. Fabulous golf courses abound in every direction. Pets welcome here but it should be noted that they may never want to leave. First time on the market so come and have a look for yourself and start making your plans!

              Car: Necessary

              This is a special and private retreat yet very close to all kinds of recreation that the Lake Tahoe area has to offer. Plenty of fun to be had in Nevada City, Grass Valley and locally in Auburn. Swimming, horseback riding, mountain biking....it's all here to enjoy

               

              Manager info

              Year Purchased: 1999

              About: No matter how far up in the corporate ladder you get, you are still reporting to someone! I retired from 'corporate restructuring ' in 1996 at the age of 52. I wanted, for once, to do build something I could say 'I did it my way.' It has taken 16 years of complete joy to build this serene and private ranch. I felt it was time to share it and my horses, dogs and mini donkeys with others that seek this private and quiet vacation. Horses enrich my life and I hope they do yours when you are here. I promise a unique experience. You won't want to leave!

              Why Auburn:
              Because it is not a property, but a ranch all to yourself.

              The Unique Benefits at this Estate:
              From wherever you look it is yours.
