Angels Camp house description

A Great Home in the Gold Country--Valley Springs

Do you dream about getting away from the traffic, the noise of the city and human congestion and take a hiatus of comfort and relaxation for a weekend, a week, two weeks or more or know of someone who does? Read on!

This gorgeous 4-bedroom/3-bathroom, split-level home has a fabulous view of the Calaveras River and expansive oak-covered hills and is located in a private, one-of-a-kind settings. It has a combination of hardwood floors (living room, dining, stairs and landing and tile (lower stairs and entryway) and plush carpet(in the four bedrooms)for you to sojourn and enjoy. Three discrete redwood balconies circle the top level of the home furnishing nearly a 360-degree view of the surrounding country.

The wrap-around deck about the swimming pool is also a good place to repose after a day’s activity and drink in the rustic grandeur that abound the home: the mountains, a plethora of birds (including a flock of wild turkeys), deer and other animals, and the lap of green and a carpet of flowers along the foothills (during the winter and spring seasons, golden grass during the summer), the drooping mature oaks, the free form in-ground Geremia pool, the 20-by-20-foot covered gazebo and fenced garden with sprinklers and drip irrigation.

The sound of the river is hypnotic, lulling you to readily fall asleep on the deck or in the gazebo for an afternoon siesta.The gazebo, furnished in a living-room style with comfotable sofa and chairs, cushened stools and coffee table is equipped with refrigerator, large table and several extra chairs that can be used for more sitting.

It is located 115 miles North-East from San Francisco-Bay Area, about the same distance from Lake Tahoe, 75 miles from Sacramento and 25 miles from Stockton.

Besides the local beauty one can enjoy, there is a lot to see and do in the greater Calaveras County. These range from the historic and picturesque gold rush towns to the great foothill vineyards and taste rooms, microbreweries and pubs to the eclectic art galleries, antique shops and gold rush museums and the Heavenly Valley snow ski resort which is about 1 hour away.

Then there are the natural wonders: the hundreds of limestone and crystalline-filled caves and caverns–-many that you can explore on your own but there are also public ones (cave city, mercer and moaning caverns being examples), the abundance of lakes and reservoirs (some of which are listed below), Big Tree and Stanislaus Natural Forests and ski resorts (such as Bear Valley which is about an hour away). You can enjoy different activities at all seasons–-winter and summer sports, hike and bike, go gold-panning or horseback riding, fishing and boating as well as enjoy a round of golf on professional courses laid out along canyon ridges in the pines or among 200 year old oaks in rolling hills.

Lakes, water views and funs: The Calaveras County in general and the Central Sierra Foothills in particular are blessed with a great number of beautiful lakes and reservoirs. Here are a few examples:

HOGAN RESERVOIR--A 5-minute drive from the house covers 50 miles of shoreline and is surrounded by oaks, manzanita and chamise. It is open all year round and contains campgrounds, day-use and picnic areas as well as launch ramps for boats and a marina.

LAKE CAMANCHE--a 15-minute drive from the house is located at the western side of the Sierra-Nevada foothills. It is a sprawling aqua mass, covering 53 miles of shoreline, and bounding 12 square miles of water at a depth of 150 feet. It is pleasantly calm and beautiful to behold with its backdrop of the rolling hills and the sky-touching mountains beyond. It is great for fishing and boating and is open all year-round with several picnic areas and campgrounds.

LAKE MELONES--A 30-minute drive from the house, Lake Melones has more than 100 miles of shoreline and is hugged by oak-studded foothills and rugged river canyon cliffs and is the located between Senora and the historic, gold-mining town of Angels Camp. It is a great place for boating, fishing, and camping, if you do not have your own, you can rent patio or house boats for an afternoon excursion or week-long enjoyment.

LAKE TULLOCH-–Located south-east of Valley Springs, at distance of about 40 miles from the house, Lake Tulloch contains great shoreline with many alcoves, stunning table mountain ranges with a spare population of mature oak trees. This lake is purported to offer one of the best waterskiing lakes in California. As in all the others, the surrounding lake area offers picnic and camping grounds as well as fire pits.
