I am so happy you have found my new listing on Alta Sierra Drive, here in the internet world. Alta Sierra is a large rural subdivision located just about seven miles down the hill (we are the foothills) from the historic gold mining town of Grass Valley, CA.
I LOVE Alta Sierra. It feels like the rural foothills with big old gray and red oaks, and a smattering of pines and cedars, but is not that far to the city. Up the hill about 10 miles from Auburn, and just about an hour away from our capital of Sacramento, Grass Valley, especially Alta Sierra, is a dreamy place to live. Water flows in our creeks, fish swim in our lakes and ponds, and the elevation couldn’t be more perfect for the changing of the seasons.
Though the feel and the topography is definitely foothills in nature, we are only just around an hour to any kind of venue. Sacramento International Airport is a little over 70 minutes from here! From there you can pretty much venture anywhere on the globe. Sacramento State University and the University of California at Davis is a short drive to the central valley, and did I say we have our own Sierra College right here in town? But that is just the beginning of learning about Alta Sierra and greater Grass Valley. If you get bored here you are asleep or just not interested! We truly have something for everyone.
Golf and bird watching are really easy here in Alta Sierra. The home I have featured this week, 11043 Alta Sierra Drive is just a quick five minute drive to the beautiful Alta Sierra Country Club. Besides golf this lovely course is well known for the amazing bird watching you can accomplish if you happen to be on the course.
Like the wildlife? Well our area is known for the variety of wild you will find (not much of it at the golf club, apart from tournament days). We have everything from raccoons to rowdy mountain lions! Bobcats are seen often at the little creek areas, as are fox, deer, and of course the flocks of wild turkeys.
Back to the listing, we have a lovely single level, 3 bedroom 2 bath home on a very nice, gentle, Alta Sierra lot. Low maintenance landscaping makes it very easy to live in this move-in-ready home. The cabinets, wood ceilings, and wood exterior are all well done, and the “bones” have been well maintained.
Take a look and then call me for an appointment to see it, value priced for a quick sale and move in for the holidays.
