Year Purchased: 2001
About the owner: We grew up in the midwest, and careers brought us to the Bay Area. Our 'fast paced' careers in Information Technology, left us exhaused by the weekend. We were looking for a getaway, that was within a few hours of our primary home, yet away from the crowds, bringing us back to our 'childhood' way of life. This home is perfect, we enjoy it with family and friends. The Rose Gardens are very special, and were created by my sister Joyce. We hope to create even more family memories in this home, and hope that you will also enjoy many good times with your loved ones, making our home, 'Your Home' away from home.
Why the Owner Chose Soulsbyville, CA, USA:
My Grandfather, Dave Whiteside, was an oiler for Missouri Pacific Rail, in the very early years of the rail. We have always enjoyed hearing the stories of the building of the rail systems, and the history is fascinating. Railtown 1897 State Historical Park in Jamestown, caught our interest, and my sister, Joyce, first moved to this home, and became a docent for Railtown. We all came to love the area, and upon her passing, decided to make this our second home. There is so much history in this area, things that will be forgotten, and our children risk the chance of ever really witnessing this history. The 'Motherlode' is a huge part of California history. The beauty of this area, is amazing. People come from all over the world to visit Yosemite. Here it is, in our back yard...an easy day trip. Something for everyone here in the Motherlode, from water sports in summer, to snow sports in the winter, all within an hour commute. And now the Black Oak Casino, 5 miles away, adding a totally new dimension to the fun to be enjoyed by the entire family. My grandchildren love the bowling alley, and game arcade, while mom and dad enjoy the 5 star restaurant, 'Seven Sisters'. The town of Murphy's is often tauted as the 'new' wine country, and a treat to visit and go wine tasting. My husband loves the local golf courses around the area, and I simply enjoy it all! We hope that you will also enjoy your visit to the 'Motherlode'.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Few destinations can offer the diversity of the 'Motherlode'. Where else can you ski Dodge Ridge in the morning, and play golf in the afternoon....or take a day trip to Yosemite....or picnic, swim and paddleboat at Pinecrest Lake, or "Be the BIG Winner" at Black Oak Casino, and take in a 5 star dinner and a show,...all convenient to the home. There is something for everyone in the 'Motherlode'
