Betz Ranch is a stunning property nestled in the Sierra Foothills. The center piece of the property boasts a 6750 square foot residence with a 1500 square foot guest house. The main home opens up to the shore of a beautiful lake teaming with fish and waterfowl. Recreation possibilities are endless. There is a four stall barn and several paddocks for horses, a fenced arena and over 100 acres to ride on. Swim in the pool, take a boat out on the lake to fish, or get on a paddle board for some relaxing exorcise. There is plenty of space and terrain for ATV’s, hunting and trap shooting. The majority of the property is high fenced for a private herd of Fallow Deer. This truly unique property is one of a kind with every detail thought out for warm elegance and practicality.
This property is extremely energy efficient. There is a heating and cooling exchange sealed system that uses the lake to heat and cool the house. Solar panels linked to the grid provide about 75% of the electricity for the ranch. Radiant floor heat is throughout the downstairs of the home. There are pedestals in place to add more solar panels if desired. There is also irrigation water available through Nevada Irrigation District. Currently the ranch purchases 5 miners inches, keeping the lake and pond full and watering the landscaping.
The interior of the main home offers both elegance and warmth. Practically thought out, the flow and detail makes every space comfortable. From the below ground wine cellar to the master suite, glorious gourmet kitchen and spacious living areas, perfection is everywhere. Outdoors the patio folds into the lawn, to the lakeshore and pool. Perfect for entertaining, recreation, a summer barbeque, or a quiet glass of wine. At every turn this home oozes luxurious relaxation.
There is an equally lovely 3 bedroom 2 bath 1500 square foot guest home adjacent to the main residence. Close enough that guests are a part of festivities but private enough to enjoy their own space. This home could easily serve as a second residence for someone to live on the property full time.
Located about 15 miles outside Grass Valley Ca. it is an easy drive to Lake Tahoe or San Francisco. Just over an hour has you at Sacramento International Airport and there is shopping 11 miles away. Below the snowline and above the valley fog makes Betz ranch an excellent convenient location.
