Property description

Life at Milfiori is restful and unhurried. The house is spacious and artfully decorated with many period pieces. It is like stepping back in time from the moment you cross the threshold. Each bedroom is completely unique and melds beautifully with the period of the home. One bedroom has a vintage claw foot tub en-suite.

There is a charming caretaker's cottage on the property and a beautiful old barn. Adjacent to the main house is a stone building with heavy metal doors. In decades past this building served as the bank as well as the village store. You can still see the well that served the community of Douglas Flat.

The house is in the heart of Calaveras County's wine growing region. Stop in at any of the wineries to meet the owners and learn about the local wines. You will be pleasantly surprised.

For a more active day, explore the old mining towns and visit one of the numerous museums for the local lore. Go antiquing or spend the day hiking in nearby Big Trees State Park or skiing at Bear Valley.

Or just enjoy the grounds at Milfiori. Sit on the porch and read a book or stroll through the gardens and try to identify the variety of flowers and plants (the name means a thousand flowers). Take the time to enjoy the slower pace of life in the Gold Country.

The owner is on the premises, available to answer your questions or give suggestions on how to make the most of your trip to the Mother Lode.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2003

About the owner: I retired to the Mother Lode from an active and stressful career in the Bay Area.

Why the Owner Chose Angels Camp, CA, USA:
I fell in love with Murphys and knew I had found something special when I first saw Milfiori. I love the historical buildings on the property and the beautiful garden. It is magical.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
I do antique and vintage sales out of the old "Italian Store" twice a year. You might be able to do some shopping right on the property. And I love to give a tour of the property.
