Hilltop home has space for whole family

By From page B1 | August 09, 2017

When guests come to the door at 5500 Prairie Loop, keep them waiting for a minute or two so they can soak up the beautiful foothill scenery all around.

This custom, four-bedroom home on more than 10 acres in Greenstone Country, just west of Placerville, overlooks Indian Creek Reservoir and offers a spectacular 360-degree view. The hilltop property has a quiet air about it and the new owners might find their guests taking a loop around the home before they set foot inside.

Once in … they might want to become permanent houseguests. The landscaped front entrance leads to a dark-wood front door that opens into a well-lit, spacious entry. To the right is the dining room and to the left is an office space. Take a few more steps inside and the true grandeur of this home shines through — tall ceilings, a wall of windows/patio doors and a gorgeous fireplace flanked by built-in cabinets make the home’s great room a luxurious space you won’t want to leave. The room also has a wet bar with a wine fridge and plenty of storage for all the items needed to throw a spirited party — indoors or out.

The back patio is covered, making it a great place for entertaining all year round.

The kitchen boasts granite countertops, bar seating and a large center island with a vegetable sink. Prepare your meals on the six-burner stove or the nearby oven. The kitchen also has a built-in microwave and a walk-in pantry. Enjoy breakfast in the well-lit nook, which also has a door leading out to the patio that overlooks the reservoir.

The master bedroom is a retreat of its own with a fireplace and patio access. The adjoining master bathroom has large closets and plenty of storage for all his/her needs. The master bath also has two sinks, a large soaking tub and walk-in shower with multiple shower heads.

Two more bedrooms downstairs, each with great views, share a bathroom. Upstairs, another room is perfect for just about anything — guest suite, man cave, craft room, play room … the possibilities are endless. The large room has a full bathroom, two closets and attic access. It also features a large patio — another great place to take in the view.

“It’s ideal for extended family,” said Realtor Marguerite Crespillo.

The paved circular driveway in front of the home connects with the four-car garage that offers ample space for vehicles and boat parking — the fourth bay of the garage is 32 feet deep — plus workspace for those who love to tinker. The garage door leading into the home opens into a spacious laundry room with a half-bath.

Outside, the unimproved property provides more opportunity for the new owners — leave it open space, test out your green thumb or add horse corrals.

Greenstone Country offers trails, a horse arena, tennis courts and an activity center. The community close to Highway 50 also has three lakes for swimming and fishing.
