Wagon Loop home is the perfect family oasis

By From page B1 | October 04, 2017

Imagine sitting on a covered porch, swaying back and forth in a rocker and watching your children play. Nearby a deer nibbles on the grass and birds chirp as they get a drink from a bubbling stream. When you or the kids feel like grabbing a snack, pluck fresh fruit and vegetables growing in the nearby garden.

This tranquil scene isn’t a fantasy. It’s available right now on Wagon Loop in Placerville. The four-bedroom, three-bathroom home on nearly 10 flat, fenced acres inside Greenstone Country offers the perfect family escape.

The property features four separate fenced pastures — you could have as many as 18 horses, plant a vineyard, etc. — as well as an orchard (apples, nectarines, pears, peaches, olives, kiwi, apricots and cherries), a garden with raised garden beds lined with metal so the gophers don’t get the goodies, defined pathways, two gazebos, a children’s play area, a large lawn and a seasonal stream that runs into a pond. Because of the garden and fruit trees, the property falls under El Dorado Irrigation District’s agriculture rate for water.

A private backyard features a gorgeous pool and spa, ample seating space and an outdoor kitchen.

The classic country estate is equally impressive inside. The formal living room has a wood-burning fireplace to keep cold nights cozy while entertaining guests. It’s connected to the bright dining room, which has doors connecting it to the backyard, should you want to take the meal outside. The well-lit kitchen also has easy access to the backyard, as well as a large pantry.

The large family room, which has another fireplace, is ideal for indoor celebrations. A wet bar with built-in cabinets and barstool seating will undoubtedly be a popular spot. Downstairs also houses a guest wing with a full bathroom, a spacious laundry room and a half-bath.

Upstairs, the master bedroom has the third fireplace in the home. It features a large closet and bathroom with dual sinks, a jacuzzi tub and walk-in shower. Step outside onto the private deck and enjoy a view of the yard and pool.

An open area at the top of the stairs (currently a space dedicated to John Wayne) leads to the other two bedrooms as well as the shared full bathroom.

Throughout the home, details make it stunning — from the hardwood flooring and quality carpets to the crown moulding around nearly every window and door. Many rooms also have custom murals.

Other features include the two-car garage with cabinets and adjacent dog run, a built-in vacuum system, ceiling fans, two furnaces, air conditioning and an attic fan.

The Kilburgs have called this Wagon Loop property — also known as Lotus Moon Estate — home since 1998. When they purchased it, all that was there was the house. Every tree and detail now there was added through the years.

“The front porch is my favorite spot,” Jim Kilburg said. “You can sit on the porch at night and we have deer running through … rabbits. You can hear the crickets.

“It’s a great property, especially for kids,” he added. “Whoever gets this house is going to be so lucky.”
