Ever dream of a vineyard in your backyard?
Look no further than this 2,200-square-foot home for sale on Wilson Loop in the Pleasant Valley area. The single story stucco home atop a hill on 5 acres boasts a thriving 3.5 acre vineyard with petite sirah and merlot grapes. Watch the seasons change on the vines and the trees from the large back deck, perhaps while enjoying a glass of your favorite vintage.
“The views are the wow factor of this home,” said Realtor Karen Larson, who pointed out that you can see Mt. Diablo on a clear day.
Built in the late 1970s the home underwent a major update about 20 years ago with other cosmetic changes made since. Guests walk through the front door into a great living room with a gas fireplace as its centerpiece and exposed beams on the ceiling. The open space allows heat and conversation to travel back to the kitchen, which has a gas range and oven, dishwasher, garbage disposal and ice maker plus plenty of counter and storage space, and the dining room — both of which have vineyard views via large, energy-efficient windows.
Down the carpeted hall are the home’s three bedrooms, two bathrooms and a comfortable office space. The master bedroom has unparalleled views of the vineyard and covered access to the back deck.
The Kelly Construction home has a two-car garage with plenty of storage and work space. Access it via the laundry room, which includes a half-bath — the perfect place to clean up after a long day tending the vines. Those grapes have a claim to fame, by the way. Some were sold to winery favored by Ronald and Nancy Reagan.
In addition to the vineyard, the well-maintained property features a gated and paved driveway with ample parking space. The front is surrounded by mature trees, giving homeowners and their guests privacy. A seating area in the front yard plus mature fruit trees on the side and a fenced-in garden add to the rural ambiance.
The home is within the Chrome Ridge Properties Association, the Gold Oak Union School District and the El Dorado Union High School District.
