Tucked just outside historic McCloud’s bustling town center, this dreamy Mill home is within equal reach of Routine and Rugged. Well-appointed a’top the desirable Squaw Valley community, the home has been lovingly restored from its humble beginnings; refinished Red Fir flooring, a cozy eat-in kitchen, and a tasteful blend of modern updates.
Begin mornings on an inhale, a sunrise of heavenly hues, glowing timber, and dramatic sculpting of Mt Shasta. Enjoy conversation or exercise along the gentle paved path meandering to the golf course. On days too warm for a 9-hole game, travel a short distance on the road parallel, leading toward Lake McCloud’s reservoir.
Year-round comfort is expertly preserved with newly installed sheetrock, recently installed dual-pane windows, an entirely rewired electrical system, as well as enhanced insulation throughout, drowning noise and maintaining desired ambiance. Additional insulation and Monitor heater lend the detached garage to a perfect workshop.
The Master Suite shines with a rich Cedar walk-in closet, and washroom. quarters that offer both the original clawfoot tub as well as a roomy shower enclosure.
Not a room wants for a window… Views of the prolific oasis out-of-doors can be enjoyed at every angle of the house. Especially that of the front bedroom, where the majestic prominence of Mt Shasta is the perfect bookend to a day.
The front yard’s grass block pavers make for a refined alternative to a traditional driveway, but it is within the trophy backyard one is truly welcomed home. A private Eden awaits behind impeccably maintained, high-cut crossbeam fencing: well-manicured landscaping and ambrosial delights of apple tree, blueberries, nectarine, Queen Anne cherries, and scent bouquets of honeysuckle, roses, and dogwood. A cornucopia of produce from multiple raised gardening beds: mint, tomatoes, zucchini, radish, and lettuce. The garden pond’s familiar, babbling song will provide tranquil addition to that afternoon read, or a relaxing accompaniment to evenings spent entertaining on the enclosed deck with built-in grill.
Capture the moon & stars with this reverie, and surrender to every moment.
