This cozy studio cottage is nestled on a private lane in the heart of Arden Park/Wilhaggen, two of Sacramento's most desirable neighborhoods. It is centrally located and within easy walking distance of the American River and its wonderful bike trail. CSUS is 5 minutes away, a 2 mile straight line down Fair Oaks Blvd. where you'll also pass a picturesque 9-hole golf course bordering the river. Downtown Sacramento and the state capitol are about five miles, also on the Fair Oaks/J St route. There are dozens of restaurants within a one-mile radius, from exceptionally fine dining to great local greasy spoons and everything in-between. There is also a Whole Foods about two miles away.
The cottage is a quiet place, about 500 square feet in size, cozy and well-appointed. It's nestled under numerous tall oaks and next to a green belt. When you are there, it is hard to believe you are in the middle of a bustling city.
The fully-equipped kitchen has a four-burner stove, fridge, microwave, dishwasher, Cuisinart coffemaker, mixer and toaster. Also included are dinnerware and flatware, linen napkins, a variety of pots, pans and bakeware, candles, wine glasses and a selection of spices and oils.
The double french doors open to an expansive redwood deck under a canopy of oak trees in this rustic setting, courtesy of the green belt which is complete with a seasonal creek below. It's perfect for relaxing with a glass of wine or dining al fresco under the stars. The deck has a table, chairs, and lighting and, if you're lucky, an evening view of the family of wild turkeys that has been hanging around for generations.
The cottage typically stays very cool due to its location under the trees, but has an oversized central heating and air unit to insure your comfort any time of year.
Comcast is our cable and Internet provider and the Hi-Definition Digital service includes HBO, Starz, Encore and other premium channels, and there is a Blue Ray Disc player.
The walls are adorned with classic Fillmore and Avalon Ballroom posters and handbills and other music-themed art. A selection of books, including many about music, music art and the music business are also on hand.
The queen-sized bed comes with down comforter and pillows, with hypoallergenic bedding available on request. A futon is available for a third person, also upon request. There is an iron, an ironing board and a hair dryer.
The tiled bath has a shower with shampoo, soaps and a selection of toiletries.
There is a washer-dryer and laundry detergent.
The cottage shares a covered carport with a larger house on the property (a bungalow that is also on VRBO) and ample additional parking is available on the lane.
The cottage is truly centrally located. There is easy access to Hwy 50 to Tahoe and the Foothills where more than 100 wineries abound; I-5 leads north to Lassen and Shasta or South to the San Joaquin Valley; I-80 to San Francisco, Napa and the Redwoods and Highway 99 to the levees of the expansive and wondrous Sacramento Delta, including the historic levee towns of Locke, Walnut Grove and Isleton.

Year Purchased: 1997
About the owner: I am Mike Farrace, Berkeley-born and a Sacramento resident since 1972. I grew up in Antioch, Ca., and worked for Tower Records for almost 30 years, publishing Pulse! Magazine and creating and managing Tower's towerrecords site and direct to consumer businesses. My full-time gig now is selling rock art and photography which can be found in abundance in my VRBO dwellings. I am very excited to be doing this and enjoy it very much. I like learning and improving so, please, do not hesitate to comment or ask questions. I will respond promptly and enthusiastically. I want to be a great host and will make sure you are happy and satisfied.
Why the Owner Chose Sacramento, CA, USA:
Even in my college years I lived near this neighborhood and wanted to buy here. In 1997, I found the right deal and that became a reality. It's a fantastic property -- full of trees and drama, great light, a stone staircase and creek, really interesting and fun. It is secure and very private, yet close to great restaurants and grocery, a library, quality retail, golf and excellent public schools. As you will see, it's a special place.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
We're committed to offering a great experience to our lodgers. I am always be available to see to it that you will be 100% satisfied with your stay.
