About the owner: I grew up on a farm in Wisconsin and love nature. My family moved to California and lived in Los Altos for several years. Missing the country and the wide open spaces we spent a lot of our weekends driving up to the mountains and lakes where we spent a lot of our leisure time enjoying boating, jet skiing, gold panning, fishing, four wheeling, photographing the beauty of the areas and a host of other activities along with the warm and friendly residents.
Why the Owner Chose Vallecito, CA, USA:
When we found this property we fell in love with the beauty of the land and the lake. On our first visit we felt like we had come home and made an offer which was accepted and have enjoyed restoring the homes, clearing areas, planting trees, building and making improvements. We love the animals, the beauty and peace that is here and have landscaped and planted vegetation that would attract birds, butterflies, etc. We are conveniently located close to Angels Camp, Murphys & Columbia State Park (a delightful gold mining town that the state has preserved) which have shopping, fun attractions, golfing, live theatre, fine dining, fast food eateries, etc. so everything is nearby and yet we are secluded and enjoy the serene life. We are close to the lake for boating, jet skiing, fishing and gold panning areas. The drive to any of these places is beautiful with majestic mountains, rivers, canyons, caves and lakes. I feel so blessed to live here among the quaint and lovely towns and wonderful people and there is no place I would rather be.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
The property is conveniently located close to recreation, shopping, entertainment and everything one needs. It is beautiful with a lake and large acreage which offers seclusion as well as walking trails, hiking, fishing, meditation and resting sites, bird watching, history, photography and more. The home has beautiful mature trees, lawn and flowers with porches equipped with tables and chairs to sit and enjoy the scenery, animals and birds. Some sunsets are spectacular and the starlit nights are fabulous. The fields dotted with wild flowers in the spring and beautiful fall colors entice one to get out among them and enjoy the fragrances and beauty.
