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.

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.

Extraordinary house!

  • 5 of 5

This house is very special, nestled in the trees at the end of the road, with views out over the valley. It is quite spacious, yet also cozy. The kitchen is absolutely amazing, well-appointed and had many work areas for our family to cook together. It is the central hub of the open layout between the dining room and the very large living room. The furniture throughout the house is handcrafted of beautiful wood, each piece is a work of art. We stayed over Christmas with our son, his wife, and their 2 1/2 year old; and our daughter, her husband and their 6 month old. Having recently downsized, we grandparents were thrilled to find such a wonderful house to accommodate our family for the holidays. The beds are comfortable and the towels and bedding are luxurious. Several of us enjoyed a soak in the master bath's jacuzzi tub for two, and the marble floor in the master bedroom was heated to everyone's delight. The big dining table was wonderful for our family meals and game playing. We enjoyed walks from the house, and visiting Nevada City to see the Christmas lights. One morning we picked up Bubba's Bagels just down the road in Grass Valley. They were a big hit. This house is a great location, not far from Nevada City or Grass Valley. Great communications with the owner and his partner over many months. Having stayed in VRBO properties all over the world, we can't recommend this property highly enough!

Beautiful setting and home that is well appointed.

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and were sad to have it over. We will be back next

year! It is private, luxurious and full of beauty. There is lots of room outdoors to enjoy the forest and the view of the Sierras is wonderful to behold.

Great for family reunion

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely, spacious, well-stocked home in a quiet setting, and is convenient to Grass Valley and Nevada City. It has a great yard for kids to play in with spectacular views. The owners are most gracious and very responsive. We had a wonderful 2-week stay. Highly recommended.

Beautiful house, great vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This was my very first vacation rental. As I told the owner, Jon, I think I spoiled myself with choosing this rental on the first time; I will now be comparing all other properties to this one. It was such a lovely home. The first night there was just myself & hubby so we cooked dinner for two. The kitchen is completely stocked with pots, pans, plates, cups, utensils & some cooking supplies (like oils & seasonings). The second & third nights my sister & her hubby, my niece & her hubby & my nephew & his one year old son joined us. The house still felt big with all of us there. We spent hours on the deck, we had movie night & good old-fashioned face to face conversations, something rare in the iphone era. But not to worry, internet is provided so everyone could still connect to the "outside" world. But I'm not sure any of us really wanted to. I felt so comfortable here that I would have been happy sitting on the deck, looking out towards the trees & just relaxing.

The beds were very comfortable & extra blankets are available for the cold nights. The bathrooms are nice, especially the master bath, & water pressure is good.

Jon was in constant communication before, during & after the entire process. He came over to show us a few helpful tips - how to adjust the heater, how to operate the washer, dryer & dishwasher & just to see if we had any questions.

I highly recommend this house for your next vacation.

Great stay in Nevada City

  • 5 of 5

I would give the house 10 stars if I could. The property is amazing, the house very comfortable and had everything we needed. Kitchen stocked with everything you need to make a meal for a crowd. Every bed was so comfortable. Very clean and so beautifully furnished. And the owner Jon is very nice and would be right there if there had been anything we might have needed.

Spectacular and stunning home!

  • 5 of 5

This home has it all! Great home for our group of 6! We absolutely loved the huge kitchen and master bedroom/bathroom. The views from the home and deck were awesome. We found ourselves starting and ending our days on the huge deck. We were totally impressed with the house and working with the owner. Everything was perfect and we would definitely highly recommend this home to others and we would stay there again. Stunning!
