Property description

This charming old barn was recently updated and is now a very comfortable space for a family of 4, or anyone looking for a secluded environment only 2 blocks from Nevada City’s downtown. Located on a wooded full-acre, the barn features new stainless steel appliances; a large refrigerator and 4-burner gas stove, dishwasher, and new cabinetry and countertops. The flooring was recently updated, and the bathroom has a large stone-shower stall with glass doors and designer hardware. All new cookware, Restoration Hardware’s 600-threadcount bedding and towels, new flat-screen TV with Direct TV, a wood-burning stove/fireplace, and a large hot tub. The barn is a two-room suite and features a large bedroom with a new queen-size Beautyrest mattress bed, and also a large comfortable queen-sized pullout couch in living room. There is also a large parking area onsite, very important as it’s nearly impossible to park in-town during all of Nevada City’s wildly popular events.

Unlike many of the other properties in the area, we are located only 2 blocks from Nevada City's downtown district. A beautiful 5-minute stroll takes you to all of this wonderful town's amenities and attractions.

Nevada City, located in the heart of Gold Country, is known to be amongst the most interesting and charming of California’s Gold Rush towns. The entire town is a national historic landmark where guests enjoy great restaurants, unparalleled nightlife and entertainment, and a variety of fine shops, boutiques, galleries and museums, all flavored with old-fashioned Nevada city hospitality.

This historical town is located only a few miles from the Empire Mine State Park and also the Nevada County Fairgrounds, host to the Nevada County Fair, annual Celtic and Bluegrass festivals and many other hugely popular festivals and events.

Nevada City is a cultural center hosting everything from Victorian Christmas to the Wild and Scenic File Festival, and a number of holiday parades and festivities weekly throughout the entire year, making it an ever popular destination for both local Northern California / Bay Area and international tourists. Anyone interested is urged to visit the Nevada City Chamber of Commerce's website.

Additionally, the historical Minor's Foundry Cultural Center and several historical in-town theaters and production groups are only a two-block walk from our property making this the perfect place to stay for someone visiting one Nevada City's nightly concerts or theatrical productions.

Furthermore, all of Broad Street’s parades, weekly Summer Art Walks, Vistorian Christmas celebrations, Mardi Gras and many more throughout the year take place just a block from our property.

Nestled in the serenity of a private feeling site, our day typically starts with a 5 minute walk to the famous Curly Wolf Cafe or several other popular breakfast spots such as Ike's Quarter Cafe or South Pine. We then spend the afternoons strolling around downtown's many antique and vintage shops, having an afternoon cocktail at the old National Hotel, or a beer at Three Forks Brewery, and then a great dinner at Friar Tuck's, Matteo's Public, Sopa Thia, Bistro 221 or one of many others.

Additionally, a quick trip into Grass Valley is only a few miles away. Our property is also located just a few blocks from the entry point of the Tribute Trail, a fantastic hike along Deer Creek with it's own newly completed suspension bridge, creating a loop over the Creek and back into town!

Also, we are just 6 miles from several entry points of the breathtaking Yuba River; Bridgeport, Hoyt's Crossing, Edwards Crossing, Purdon, and many other entry points within the Tahoe National Forrest.

The mountain biking in this area is world class, in fact Nevada city host to the annual Nevada City Bicycle Classic held on Fathers Day weekend, it's one of the premiere sporting events in the Sierra foothills, the largest and oldest bike race on the West Coast, and the second-oldest race in the nation.

Celebrate summer Nevada City style at the Farmer’s Market enjoying live music, local farmers, vendors, and artists, freshly baked treats and more. Shop for healthy food, locally grown with care and pride. Come, feel the energy and live the goodness!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: We are a San Francisco family who fell in love with Nevada City at first sight when dropping our oldest daughter to sleepaway camp on the Yuba River in July of 2013. We stumbled upon 534 Spring Street that weekend, with it's proximity being only a block behind Nevada City's Broad Street commercial district, and 6 miles from the unbelievably beautiful Yuba River, and we knew that this was somewhere we wanted to retreat from our busy city life in San Francisco.

Why the Owner Chose Nevada City, CA, USA:
The charm of this property is unparalleled. There is a real sense of privacy and seclusion as it's located on a full-acre with fruit and nut bearing trees, vast landscape and an incredible variety of trees and plant life....yet it's only a 5 minute walk to all of the city's awesome cafes and restaurants, theaters, nightlife, hikes, bike trails, and more. We love it!

The Unique Benefits at this Bed And Breakfast:
Our entire property consists of a spacious 3-bedroom home with an additional 2-room in-law, a separate garden studio on the side of the house, and also a large 2-room barn on the rear of the lot. All 4 'compartments' of the property have separate entrances and are very different spaces, yet all updated with new flooring, Restoration Hardware linens, towels and cutlery. All new Beautyrest mattresses throughout the property in all bedrooms, and plush down and down-alternative pillows. Comfort abounds in every element of the property. We redesigned the home, barn, in-law, and garden-studio by blending the modern updates of today's style of living with an influx of locally sourced antiques and accessories, maintaining a regard for the property's eclectic and historical 'cabin-like' past, having been built in 1851 by two Irish brothers who 'struck it rich' in the early days of the 1849 Gold Rush.
