About the property

4/3 with views and parklike yard at the end of private road only 4 min from town

This unique 4 bed/3bath estate is located at the end of a private paved road only 2 minutes from the fwy and 3 minutes from historic downtown Nevada City. Situated on a 3 acre park-like property with views from every window in every room overlooking Nevada City and the northern Sierra, this home has the prime location in Nevada County. Large black oaks, cedars, pines and firs are scattered amongst sweeping lawns and immaculate landscaping without a neighbor in sight. At over 4,000sq/ft, this custom house features architectural flourishes, vaulted ceilings and interesting angles with a Tahoe contemporary feel. The gourmet kitchen is open and central to the great room, dining and living room areas and is perfect for entertaining. The large master suite includes a study and enormous master bath with heated floor, whirlpool tub, glass block walk-in shower and private deck. The two sinks face the pristine views of the Sierras. There are three additional large bedrooms and two full baths, each unique and beautiful. Featured amongst the homes fine furnishings are many pieces crafted by the internationally recognized furniture maker Benji Reyes, including the stunning dining table. The home has central heat and A/C, a gas fireplace as well as a large wood stove for chilly winter nights.

Outside, the home is surrounded by a large deck which also commands the 180 degree views and overlooks the lawns. Three double doors, when opened, connect the deck to the house, increasing the available entertaining space. At the lower border of the property flows the largest NID canal in the county. The canal has a well maintained and flat trail next to it that provides miles of flat walking in either direction.

Included is Dish TV, Netflix, highspeed internet, gardener once/wk, large BBQ, guitars (both electric and acoustic), and many other items to make your stay perfect.

The hosts/owners have lived in Nevada City for over twenty years, and are available for information about the area, the attractions, restaurants, hikes, or anything else that would enhance your stay.

Fabulous home

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here over Memorial Day Weekend 2017 for a family wedding. The house is beautifully furnished, the kitchen well stocked in terms of appliances, dishes,etc. and the garden was gorgeous and in full bloom. The view from the property is also great. Our stay was very relaxing. If we needed anything or had questions the owner was easy to contact. I highly recommend this property and would stay again in a heartbeat. The house is about a 5-10 minute drive from town.

Great property!! Spacious, scenic view, beautiful furnishings, well equipped

  • 5 of 5

Our party of 8 enjoyed this property. The views are spectacular. The home is spacious, with enough living areas indoors and out to be alone or gather together for a family dinner. The kitchen is large enough for multiple cooks to work in. The master suite is truly masterful. We highly recommend this property.

Beautiful Views and Everything Included

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for six days for my niece's wedding. We have stayed at many rental homes and this is the only one that had so many extras included. You don't need to pack shampoo, conditioner, body wash, q-tips, cotton balls, a makeup mirror, blow dryer, or first aid kit. Most homes where we have stayed ( and not inexpensive ones) have only included one roll of toilet paper in each bathroom, one bar of soap at each sink, one roll of paper towels in the kitchen, and maybe a couple of dish towels. This owner provides extra TP, paper towels, laundry soap, cleaning supplies, spices, every appliance you can think of, and much more. The home is beautiful with plenty of room to spread out for a large family. Our group had 8 people ranging in age from 27 to 86, but we had meals with up to 15 with all the wedding party. Beds are comfortable, linens are soft, towels are plush, and the views are spectacular. They had a lovely welcome basket with a bottle of Prosecco and sea salt toffee, along with brochures of everything to do and see in the area. The owner was also very responsive with any questions we had and replied quickly. You will LOVE this property!

Fantastic in everyway!

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at this gorgeous home. Jon was so helpful and welcoming and the house and grounds were beyond beautiful. Our son's wedding was in Nevada City and the house was perfect for welcoming our out-of-town friends. The surrounding forest and trails are at your doorstep! The outdoor deck has comfy chairs and couches for enjoying the view. The home is furnished with exquisite furniture and it is immaculately clean! We loved staying at the house and would highly recommend it.
