Escape the city clamor, and retreat to the historic lumber and rail town of McCloud, a hamlet where numerous starlets, socialites, and political celebrities have sought relaxation for a century! Nestled on the southern slope of Mt. Shasta — California’s second highest mountain — McCloud sits protected as if by magic, amid infinite forest and pristine waters. The geographic anomaly dominates its surrounding landscape, astounding onlookers with its constant profile in any given direction.
Mount Shasta’s runoff creates three prolific waterways — the McCloud River, the Sacramento River, and the Pit River – in addition to offering some of the most invigorating drinking water on the Planet! Beyond metaphorical treasure, McCloud represents one of the few Californian troves famous for gold prospecting.
And, in spite of boasting sought-after dining and lodging establishments, McCloud exists as a rare and wild Paradise, seemingly unexplored. Dotted by a delicious array of wild berries for baking cobbler, endless boating basins, world-class fishing, enchanting golf courses, varied skiing, and famous trails for hiking and biking among the towering timber. Thundering cascades of Upper, Middle, and Lower waterfalls bring tourists from around the globe to explore nature in Technicolor detail.
Built in the 1920s Mill architecture, this enchanting home offers a blend of tradition and refinement, lovingly renovated into a cozy turnkey residence. Squaw Valley Creek babbles just a stone’s throw away from the immaculate abode, well-appointed in a nostalgic picket fence. Soothing palettes, natural light flooding every room, and a fluid floorplan will envelope all who enter. Custom hickory cabinets and granite create a soft, welcoming kitchen with efficient, nearly new appliances. Most all furnishings negotiable with sale.
Seasonal shifts in temperature won’t be near as dramatic with the low-E argon gas-filled windows. Among the many luxurious bathroom features include: one Kohler pedestal sink, heat lamps, and rainguard shower doors.
Spacious and clean, the detached garage offers more than just automobile storage. A partitioned room within is the perfect secure area or additional workshop. You may even make room for a third vehicle.
An adjacent, newly-roofed wood shed and neighboring garden plot round out the quintessential backyard. A patch of Concord grapes and a thicket of Thompson seedless variety accompany apple trees, Quaking Aspen, a Red Maple, pink Dogwood, and Liquid Amber proudly recall ancient roots on the carpet of manicured lawn.
