Pride of ownership lives here! It is not often that you find a turn-key equestrian property in one of the nicest residential subdivisions in the Cottonwood area, but here it is. Custom built in 2006, the gated house and attached 2-car garage has western ranch character while featuring a host of special touches that make it both comfortable and energy efficient. A cathedral-ceilinged great room, stained concrete bathroom floors, river rock fireplace surround, 9-foot ceilings in the bedrooms, large pantry and laundry rooms, and a walk-around porch are just some of the amenities. Double-zone heating and cooling, a whole house fan, blown-in insulation, ceiling fans throughout, and kerosene-fired fireplace and on-demand hot water heater are examples of energy efficiency. For the horse lover or hobby livestock raiser there is a beautiful horse barn with 5 stalls, tack room, and wash area; an approximate 250 x 120 ft. riding arena; and several good-sized paddocks with excellent fencing. All this on nearly 6 usable acres with distant views of Mt. Shasta and Mt. Lassen. Come see one of the best properties that Cottonwood has to offer, yet at a price that makes it a great value!
Here is a beautiful equestrian property on almost 6 acres but surrounded by upscale homes in one of the nicest residential subdivisions in Cottonwood. Located on a gentle bluff, most homes in the neighborhood, including this one, have distant views of Mt. Shasta and Mt. Lassen.
The home, barn, and grounds are all in excellent shape. The custom home was finished in 2006 with special features like a 40-year rated roof, ridge vents, blown-in cellulose insulation, double-zone heating and cooling, whole-house fan, central vacuum, and kerosene-fired fireplace and on-demand water heater, just to name a few construction upgrades. In addition, the whole house is plumbed for propane, if a new owner prefers it.
This 2,072 square foot 3 bedroom and 2 bath home with attached 2-car garage has western ranch style combined with tasteful touches and designer upgrades everywhere. Examples include chamfered corners throughout the house; ceiling fans in almost every room; stained concrete floors in the bathrooms; river rock fireplace surround; cathedral ceiling in the living, dining and kitchen area; 9-foot ceilings in the bedrooms and hallways; walk-in closets and kitchen pantry; and a beautiful walk-around porch perfect for morning coffee and catching those western sunsets at the end of the day.
In addition to the turn-key home is the 36 x 60 foot barn with its 4″ x 6″ post and beam construction. Featuring 5 generous stalls and a tack room, it also has a paved horse bathing area under the extended front overhang, and a two-story central alleyway for plenty of light and ventilation. There is also an approximate 250 foot by 120 foot riding arena and several large paddocks with electrified fencing in excellent shape and several larger trees for shade in the summer.
