Property description

My tastefully decorated sweet home is located in the heart of desirable historic downtown Nevada City. Historic gold mining sights, shopping, restaurants, hiking and biking trails are all within easy reach of the house. Situated on top of one of Nevada City's hills, surrounded by almost 1 acre of land, and set back from the main road, the property radiates a tranquil atmosphere. My home will grace you with European flair coupled with old world charm as the house was built in 1930 and I am from Europe.
The house has 3 bedrooms, one bath, a knotty pine living room, large dine-in kitchen, screened in front porch and back deck with outdoor dining table. The shared bathroom is directly accessible from the bedroom. For those who have the need for extra space I also have a full size good quality pull out futon sofa in the living room. The kitchen has a gas range, dishwasher and is overall well equipped. (I like to cook!) There is a 36' flat screen TV in the living room with capacity to live stream movies from your computer and a DVD player for your convenience. There is fast wifi throughout the house. The large back yard allows you to relax in lounge chairs or a hammock and watch the ducks frolic. Bring a basketball if you like to shoot a few hoops as there is a basketball hoop in the large paved driveway.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: I was born and raised in Germany and left to move to the States when I was 22. My first destination was Manhattan where for the first few years I focused on finishing my Master's at the University of Heidelberg, Germany. Later on I worked for a leading German bank in the World Financial Center in Corporate Banking until 11 years later I got married and moved to Chicago. There my 2 children were born. Five years later my ex-husband and I moved to Nevada City where I have resided now for 15 years raising my 2 boys, healing myself of cancer successfully and helping people heal chronic illnesses.

Why the Owner Chose Nevada City:
My main desire is to make you feel at home and support you in creating lasting memories during your stay at my home. Depending on your desire, I will give you lots of privacy or be available to connect with you any way you wish. I am happy to introduce you to the abundance of activities available to you during your time in Nevada City and surroundings.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Restaurants, wine bars, local brewery, music, theater, library and shops in downtown Nevada City are a 5 minute walk away. There is an abundance of walks through beautiful historic downtown as well as a myriad of hiking and biking trails starting directly from the house. The sacred Yuba River is only 10 minutes away by car. If you wish, I'll show you where to watch magnificent sunrises nearby. Squaw Valley, world-class skiing, is only 1 hour away.
