SOLD...This 2009 custom 2-story home sits atop the highest lot on the mountain. At over 3,400 feet, it has a commanding, panoramic view in all directions, looking over the San Joaquin Valley to the west and the High Sierra's to the east. On a clear day you can even see the Coast Range. If you are looking for privacy, superb views, and don't mind a few inches of snow from time to time in the winter, this very nicely appointed and newly remodeled home just might be the ticket.
The property has plenty of good usable land with a variety of terrains, rock outcroppings, and mature oaks. The views are simply terrific. You will see gorgeous sunsets over the San Joaquin Valley, enjoy nights with the valley city lights blazing, and beautiful sunrises over the snow-capped Sierras. And when you get one those occasional winter snows, wow! The pictures don't begin to do the views justice. The 3,400 foot elevation makes it about 10 degrees cooler in the summer than the San Joaquin Valley and you are well above the valley fog level.
The 1,832 sqft 3br2ba home has been newly remodeled throughout. The kitchen features new appliances, gorgeous Richie custom cabinetry with pull-out shelves and slo-close drawers, unique tile counters with a breakfast bar, and there is new wood grain tile plank flooring on the main floor and in the bathrooms. The kitchen is country style with a large breakfast area and slider to the back yard. There is also a neat formal dining room off the entry that alternatively could be a den. The upstairs master bedroom is great with a huge walk-in closet, lots of windows, and a fully appointed master bath. The spa tub has a gorgeous slate surround. At present, there is a small separate shower, but the walls were plumbed to have an 8 foot open double shower. The downstairs bedroom has an oversize walk-in closet. Heating and cooling are handled by a multi zone ac/forced air system. A rec room with sliding glass doors to the rooftop patio completes the second story. This large room could also be the 3rd bedroom and has a large walk-in closet. The rooftop patio is spectacular. If you are going to have a view property, you need a place to enjoy the views and this patio is amazing with its new metal railed fencing and views that are forever. There is a large back yard with newly installed 6 foot chain link fencing that will give your animals plenty of room to roam. The oversize 2 car garage is fully finished with dual doors on automatic openers, a laundry area, and entry to the kitchen.
This is a great parcel with 4.88 acres. The frontage vegetation completely conceals the home from roadside view and the hilltop setting of the home insures complete privacy from neighboring properties. The terrain is mixed with open areas, many mature oaks, and some truly unique rock formations plus there is plenty of room for all of your outbuildings, animals and garden areas. The well is an excellent 12 gpm.
How about the negatives? The interior of the home has beautifully redone and the exterior has been newly re-stuccoed and repainted. But, there is very little installed landscaping. On the other hand, that means you get an unfinished canvas to put your own finishing touches on. The 3,400 foot elevation does mean you will get occasional winter snow (4 to 6 inches is not uncommon) but you will also enjoy summer temperatures that are about 10 degrees cooler than the San Joaquin Valley.
All in all, this is a terrific opportunity to get a very upgraded 2009 custom home on an exceptional lot. You can enjoy gracious living in complete privacy with eye-candy views. Yes, it has a few minor flaws, but those are way more than offset by the positives. This is well worth taking a look at. This is most certainly not your normal cookie cutter property or home. Showings are by appointment only.
