World Class gorgeous with frontage on the North Yuba River and Howard Creek, as well as, the trout filled private pond and in full view of the craggy and majestic Sierra Buttes! The mountain meadow landscape hosts huge varieties of blooming flowers in season. Located at the south end of Gold Lakes Highway, summer and winter recreation is unsurpassed throughout the Lakes Basin. The beautifully designed and meticulously maintained home is oriented for year round comfort, convenience, enjoyment, and for an awe inspiring view from every window!
Private, yet easily accessible, this incredible 2.55 acres makes you feel like you're in another world. Wonderful as a single family home or retreat but has been operated seasonally as HiCountry B&B. It has been a very popular spot for those seeking serenity and relaxation while being in close proximity of Lakes Basin and just 5 minutes from the completely charming hamlet of Sierra City.
Rushing by is the North Fork of the Yuba River... close enough to hear the peaceful flow or the roaring turbulence of the season... close enough to just walk a few feet off the deck and throw a line. The awe inspiring Sierra Buttes loom as an incredible backdrop to view through the windows of the lovely home, from the huge deck, and across the trout filled private pond. Landscaping is indescribably a true labor of love. Throughout the growing season there are abundant floral displays and thick grassy green lawns.
Enjoying full water rights to both the North Fork of the Yuba River and to Howard Creek, there is no shortage of water for the pond or for irrigation and the maintenance of the grounds. Irrigation is controlled by a 12 station timer.
Not to be upstaged in any way, the wonderful home has been designed and oriented to take full advantage of the view and location. The huge great room sports a gigantic rock fireplace with an efficient insert that heats the whole house and invites one to sit down and relax in front of the fire. The kitchen and dining area are part of that great room for a cozy yet very spacious setting. Windows look directly over the pond to the Buttes and doors open to the deck from both ends of the room.
Three of the four bedrooms are en suite with private beautiful master bathrooms. The fourth bedroom uses a bathroom just across the hallway. Each very comfortable bedroom is tastefully designed and decorated as well as oriented for enjoying the out of doors beyond.
The property is very well equipped for year round living and access. The wide circular driveway is paved. There is an unseen equipment yard behind a group of trees.
A 20 KW generator is included that services the entire place in case of a power outage.
A monitored fire alarm system is hard wired.
There is efficient storage galore.
Fixtures and appliances, as well as, windows are all top of the line in quality.
Tile floors are heated with a thermostat.
There are 4 water heaters.
Jacuzzi tubs are in two of the master bathrooms. An 1845 6' claw foot tub is in another. All bathrooms have shower stalls.
Current owners have lovingly attended to every detail, operating it as a very popular Bed & Breakfast Inn for part of the year. This operation could be easily expanded throughout the winter months to accommodate the increasing popularity of snowmobilers and other winter sports enthusiasts, as well as, those just wanting a beautiful and peaceful spot to sit in front of the fire and take in the winter wonderland.
The house lends itself beautifully to a single family home but its arrangement and set-up would work extremely well for a shared ownership.
Hwy 49 to Bassetts. Turn south onto Greene Road. It's the first place on your right. Sign says "HiCountry Inn."
