Year Purchased: 2001
About the owner: We are a water resources consultant and architectural designer, along with our 3 kids. We were drawn to the California Delta as students at University of California, Davis, moving here in 2001 after restoring an 1882 Victorian in Midtown Sacramento. The Delta is a unique 'working' landscape providing food and water for millions of people while also representing a picturesque treasure-trove of recreation, adventure, fish and wildlife habitat, and other opportunities.
Why the Owner Chose Walnut Grove, CA, USA:
While seeking escape from urban life in Sacramento, this little cherry orchard found a special place in our hearts with 360-degree views and an ideal mix of water (with Steamboat Slough across the levee to the west) and land (with vast acres of orchards all around). The guest cottage and main farmhouse date to the 1920s, on the site of an older farmhouse lost in a fire. It is a charming and relaxing rural setting.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Our friends and guests love to visit because even an afternoon can feel like a vacation due to the peace and tranquility.
