This beautiful home is the perfect place to get away. It's great for couples, families, and retreats. Two master bedroom suites make it ideal for multiple families. Once here, you are only a short drive from Lake Tahoe, wine country, gold country, El Dorado National forest, ski resorts, South Fork American River, North Fork Consumnes River, and Jenkinson Lake! It is an hour from the Sacramento Airport, and five minutes away from Highway 50, grocery stores, pharmacy, Starbucks, and dining.
Located on a beautiful forested green belt, this home is conveniently located only 5 minutes from US 50. This is very helpful during the snowy weather because it is on one of the first streets to be plowed, making access easier. Ample parking and level entry makes accessing the home incredibly easy for older and younger guests. While there are homes to each side, the view from most rooms is a verdant forest with abundant wildlife.
Wicker Moose Manor is a spacious 3,600 square feet, so there's plenty of room for multiple families. The house has two living rooms each with wood and pellet burning stoves, comfortable seating, large windows that bring in plenty of natural light, and televisions. Upstairs has a large wall mounted flat screen, as well as downstairs, where board games, foozeball and a shuffle table are kept. There are two master bedroom suites, both with windows, private bathrooms with plenty of light and large mirrors, and closet space. The home has many electrical outlets, so there is no fighting for a space to charge your devices. Pocket doors allow you to close off a room to keep the noise down in other parts of the home. The kitchen, dining room, and upstairs master all have sliding glass doors enabling you to bring the outdoors in. The back deck has plenty of space for you to sit and listen to the creek and the birds fluttering about. Breathe in the fresh, crisp mountain air and relax!
The garage is perfect for storing your outdoor gear like kayaks, fishing gear, ice chests, bikes, and skiis or snowboards. The backyard is ideal for sledding, and the house has sleds for you to use in the garage.
During the winter, the central heating system keeps the house at a comfortable 65 degrees, but nothing beats a fire on a snowy night. There is firewood and wood pellets on site for your convenience as well. During the summer the whole house fan keeps the home comfortable after the sun sinks behind the trees. Only occasionally does Wicker Moose Manor experience uncomfortably hot nights, but no worries - there are two portable room air conditioners to keep you cool.
