Nestled in the heart of the Gold Country, Farmhouse is a 6.19-acre estate in one of the most sought-after locations in Murphys. Minutes to historic downtown, yet it feels miles away in the tranquil, private setting looking to the Sierras.
Set back from the road, the home welcomes you with a landscape dotted with majestic oaks. The manicured lawn leads to the covered porch perfect for sipping varietals from the many local wineries. Farmhouse opens to voluminous space and expansive views looking east to Bear Valley and a large pasture with occasional visitors of cows lovingly known as “The Girls”.
Once inside, contemporary style and solid construction for modern living blend gorgeous rustic touches and refined elegance. The main level has an open floorplan that is perfect for entertaining. Soaring ceilings and wide open views give the home an airy feel, yet the living room remains cozy, complete with a wood-burning stove and a sizeable window bench to curl up with a book. The open floorplan that leads to the adjacent dining room flows seamlessly to both the backyard and the chef’s kitchen with copper countertops and custom cabinetry. Create a meal for a crowd with the Classic Wolf range with double ovens and a gas cooktop. The kitchen has been updated with new stainless steel appliances including a refrigerator, dishwasher, sink, faucet and garbage disposal.
The thoughtful floorplan was designed for country living. Pull in the spacious attached 2-car garage after a long day in the country and put up your gear in the built-in cabinetry, and rinse your picnic glasses in the sink in one of the two workstations. Enter the house through the mudroom that has a ½ bath to clean up and recently purchased frontloading washer and dryer for your dusty clothes.
The primary bedroom resides on the main floor, providing the ease of single-level living. The bedroom looks west to views of the expansive property and boasts 3 closets and 10’ ceilings. The primary bath door opens to the backyard with a large shower to rinse before a soak in the hot tub or scrub down after a long hike. The bathroom is complete with double sinks, and a clawfoot bathtub to unwind after a long day in the country.
Ascend the grand staircase and land to an open loft, perfect for your home office, or tranquil reading space. There are two generously sized bedrooms with abundant closet space that share a large Jack and Jill bathroom featuring double vanities, a large shower, and a claw foot tub. The private setting allows for a bubble bath looking out the bay window to the expansive property.
The backyard looks east towards the Sierras and large pasture and includes a covered porch for watching the sun rise over the valley while drinking coffee to start the day. At night, turn on the outdoor lights and dine al fresco in the country air. Have a relaxing soak in the newer hot tub before calling it a night. Farmhouse lives up to the name and is complete with a custom heated chicken coop and fenced-in dog run.
Designed for enjoying numerous outdoor spaces, whoop it up with neighbors for a friendly round of horseshoes or roast marshmallows around the fire pit in the north yard that overlooks the gulch with a seasonal stream and bridge that takes you to 4 undeveloped acres. Explore the property dotted with quartz that drew so many to Queen of the Sierra.
Enjoy the easy living of Farmhouse with the expansive acreage for privacy and solitude, grow a vineyard and take advantage of the agricultural water that is available or expand the estate to make it your legacy in Muphys.
