It is not often that one has the blessing of representing a home more than one time. Yes it means that I have been around a while! It also means that this home has been through major transformations over the past six years. I have been the lucky agent to represent the buyers and sellers during that process. This magical property has a new owner, who I would like to welcome to Alta Sierra. We love living here and we are hoping that the new owner and family will be here with us, enjoying the bounty at the corner of Thiel and Names Way for many years to come.
If you have ever dreamed of a lifestyle that is simple yet has a taste of the Alpine, then you MUST come preview Thiel Way. This home is located in beautiful Alta Sierra Estates, just about ten miles from the sweet town of Grass Valley. There is nothing that quite compares to Alta Sierra, and this home has tradition written all over it! The two story Chalet style home is nestled among amazing rock outcroppings in the center of a forested lot. The house features a set of two story windows that look out through the trees. Remodeled in 2013, there was not a room left untouched. This was an EXTREME makeover of the BEST kind. The transformation features a beautiful kitchen with solid hickory cabinets, stainless steel appliances, granite counter tops, pantry, and buffet. Off the kitchen is a sunny breakfast nook with windows on three sides for enjoying the landscaping. All the interior doors were replaced with solid wood doors and trim wood work was hand crafted by one of our local wood workers.
There are two lovely bedrooms downstairs with views through the trees, a full sized stackable laundry set up, and a big bathroom. The main room features those windows I described but also a new stacked rock fireplace run on propane (no wood to chop!) and stairway up to the second level. Handmade wrought iron rails and wood trim stairs lead you to the master level. Dual vanity master with tub and shower, a nice big bedroom and another room that our owners use as the ‘Man Cave’, but could be an adorable nursery or office.
There are no houses with the charm of this one anywhere NEAR the value here in Alta Sierra. The custom details are obvious and the new roof, fireplace and all those goodies, just make it move in ready. Even the garage got a makeover with custom fitted carriage doors, and specialty trim moldings. You just have to see this home to appreciate it.
