Owner info

Year Purchased: 1988

About the owner: We raised our children here in the country. They are all grown and on their own. We enjoy visits from them and our grandchildren. We enjoy traveling with Watson, our Miniature Schnauzer.

Why the Owner Chose Colfax, CA, USA:
We moved here 27 years ago from the hustle & bustle of southern home is in the Sierra Nevada's and has the same feel as Lake Tahoe. We are surrounded by Ponderosa Pines. We visit Lake Tahoe once a year because we have beautiful Lake Rollins just 15 min away.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Conveniently located between Auburn and Colfax, we are nestled in the Sierra Nevada's and only 3 minutes off of Interstate 80. Our fenced, gated and secure acre has two homes on it. We are opening our main home for short periods of time while we are traveling.
