This very private 85-acre estate located in a lovely natural setting offers so much opportunity and possibility. Peaceful and quiet, this could be the vineyard, event center or farm of your dreams. The main residence is what you would expect on a property this special. Custom built with attention to every detail, this home was designed to capture the beauty of the property. The judicious and delightful use of reclaimed materials enhances the history of the property and provides a patina not found in new construction.
Expand into all three levels or live seamlessly on just the main floor, which encompasses all living and entertaining areas, a spacious master suite, a private office area, as well as an additional cozy office or hobby space behind a secret bookcase wall.
Step through the hand crafted entry doors, through the foyer and into the great room, anchored by a massive fireplace built with granite from neighboring properties and modeled directly on the plans of an English Rumford fireplace. The 23 foot, vaulted ceilings are supported by giant timbered trusses. An expanse of windows and double French doors lead to the outdoor patio that overlooks the rolling green lawn, leading to the pond and fountain. The living area opens to the formal dining room, which also takes advantage of the outdoor views. Just off the entry way is a powder room featuring a stone “waterfall wall” and a sink created from a Parisian baptismal font.
The kitchen was created for those who are passionate about cooking and entertaining. Open to the great room, yet still separate, it includes granite counters, a professional 7-burner Wolf range, built in wall oven and microwave, as well a Subzero refrigerator and two refrigerated drawers. The large center island with sink includes a Bosch dishwasher, and allows for multiple chefs to work at the same time. The bar area with built in wine refrigerator seats five spectators. Another special feature is the custom built cabinetry, inlaid with reclaimed redwood from local water tanks. Adjacent to the kitchen is a casual dining area, which could also be used as a cozy sitting room. Antique stone tiles reclaimed and imported from a farmhouse in France lend an old world feel to this well-appointed, modern kitchen.
The master suite is generously sized and positioned to take in the views of the property with French doors leading to a private patio. The master bath has dual vanities, and a separate bathing room. An incredible, 220 square foot custom walk-in closet features built-in cabinets and dressing area is conveniently right next door to the main laundry room. A “secret room” ideal for a cozy office or hobby room with a view is accessed through the master bedroom via a door, or more charmingly, through a moveable bookcase in the great room.
Follow the hand-forged wrought iron railing up the stairs to two generously sized bedrooms, each with their own en-suite. Or go down the stairs to the lower level where you’ll find a 3000 bottle, climate controlled wine cellar with room to sit and sip, as well as another living area / bedroom and full bath and access to the outdoors.
Back on the main level and through the kitchen you’ll find a spacious pantry, auxiliary laundry room, full bathroom, and a wonderful private office overlooking the large covered patio.
Just eight minutes to Newcastle and I-80 and another eight minutes to downtown Lincoln, this estate is fewer than fifteen minutes from great shopping, two hours to San Francisco, or little more than an hour to a ski trip in Lake Tahoe. It’s a perfect location to explore the foothills while you entertain at your a vineyard, ranch or private family compound. It could also be an ideal location for hosting weddings and other events.
