As you drive toward this custom home you’ll notice its magnificent curb appeal with its peaked wall of windows and fired clay roof tiles.  The awe continues to as you step through the "one of a kind" front door and experience the vaulted open beam ceilings, views, updated kitchen, hardwood floors, and private park-like backyard, inspiring a sense of comfort, calm, spaciousness and splendor.  Moreover, beyond beauty and style, the home is designed with unique details that offer pragmatic features and secure, robust construction.


Starting with the front door, it's made of solid repurposed wood from a water tank in Auburn, CA.  The large 8” x 17” support beams found at the crest of the vaulted ceilings and in the garage are repurposed from a Southern Pacific Railway trestle in the Sacramento area.  They were inspected by a certified lumber inspector to ensure that each met the grade of select or better.


The garage and workshop is an auto enthusiasts dream!  Each bay of the 3 car garage is 24 feet deep  and with workshop, total area is approximately 1200 square feet. The middle bay is equipped with an overhead I-beam and trolley, there is a dedicated 50 amp 220 volt circuit and (2) 20 amp 220 volt circuits, plus ample 110 outlets.  It’s even plumbed for central compressed air with multiple access fittings around the garage.


The robust design of the foundation incorporates over 100 steel reinforced concrete piers going down to various depths along with 8” steel reinforced poured concrete walls.  In collaboration with the foundation is an engineered retaining wall located in the backyard.  The retaining wall is 8” thick made of steel reinforced concrete and tied into 12” diameter piers.  There is also a system of french drains for water management.


The property includes an upper backyard that is a level area approximately 65’ x 21’ and has access to a 110 volt, 30 amp outlet, water, a cement pad approximately 10’ x 20’, and a shed on a 10’ x 12’ cement pad.  This area is perfect for RV parking or anything else you can imagine.
