We are delighted to present this unique property, a relaxing and lovely 5 bedroom 3 bath lakefront home in one of California’s most beautiful lake and golf communities. It is conveniently located one hour from the ski slopes, and in the summer it becomes a recreational paradise with swimming, kayaking, fishing and waterskiing. Expansive outdoor decks provide a shady retreat for watching the colors of the sky change while sipping a cool beverage. You can swim right from your own beach or be water skiing within 30 seconds of leaving your own dock.
The lot is level, a rare find for lakefront homes, with a large backyard for activities. The home is 3209 square feet in size, with 80 windows, high ceilings, an open floor plan, two loft offices, and panoramic across-the-lake views.
This one-of-a-kind home is owned by a well-regarded Nevada County artist. Several of her creations adorn the property. Particularly beautiful are the 80+ handmade glass tiles that enliven the main floor bathroom.
Ideally situated so that the main living areas face north to the lake, the main floor of the house is entirely glass on the lake side and the oversize double doors open out onto a large deck that is covered and cool all day due to its north facing orientation. This main floor of the house features an open floor plan with vaulted ceilings that creates a spacious area for family and friends to gather. It is an excellent party house with many different areas for entertaining, conversation, and playing.
During the past few years the owners have made many improvements small and large. The major addition has been the construction of a detached artist studio and golf cart garage. Built will all the appropriate permits, the studio includes a half bath, a roll-up door into the main room, a kiln and pottery room, and an artist display area. The studio could be easily converted into a 3rd garage, a guest quarters, a workshop, or a detached office suite.
Lake of the Pines offers its own 19 hole golf course of 6140 yards in a beautiful setting surrounding the lake. It features shots over water, canyons, creeks and bunkers. The spectacular 6th tee is elevated on a ridge far above the fairway. Award-winning Dark Horse (3 miles) and The Ridge (10 miles) golf courses are nearby.
Lake of the pines also offers 4 tennis courts and 7 parks, each with its own sandy beach. Several of the parks include play structures for the kids. For those who like to walk, run, jog, or cycle, it’s a 3.8 mile loop around the lake with numerous hills to challenge the more fit and adventurous.
The nearby foothill towns of Auburn, Grass Valley, and Nevada City have many great restaurants, shops, and over a dozen wineries to enjoy. Many historic sites of the California Gold Rush including Sutter’s Mill and Empire Mine are close enough for short day trips. There is a surprisingly rich cultural scene in the area that features excellent music, art, and theatre venues.
