5735 Old French Town Road
Open House Saturday 6/17 1-4PM
Rich in Gold Rush era history, rural Shingle offers beautiful California scenery along its meandering country roads and wonderful weather. Near the junction of French Creek and Old French Town roads you turn up the long driveway flanked by white 3-rail fencing to this charming country style raised ranch home with classic covered front porch.
A welcoming entry through oak and beveled glass door leads to the formal living and dining rooms with rich acacia wood floors, wood-burning fireplace with classic oak mantel and double French doors.
The kitchen, remodeled in 2009, has beautiful birch cabinets, granite slab counters and full backsplash in leather finish, copper farm sink with artistic relief front panel and goose-neck faucet in oil-rubbed bronze. Bookshelves, crown moldings, and work-space lighting, breakfast nook dining bar, and pantry closet round out the exquisite re-design. Appliances include Thermador induction cooktop Kitchen-Aid microwave/convection ovens and birch Dutch-door paneled refrigerator, and a beverage refrigerator.
The cozy family room features a brick hearth with Lopi wood stove for those cold winter nights, rich wood-paneled beam round out the rustic ambiance. French doors off the entry to the office/4th BR and access to the adjacent updated full bath on the main floor make this floor plan so versatile.
Upstairs the secondary bedrooms have been recently painted and feature double-hung windows and ample room for queen- and king-sized beds. The upstairs bathroom has been recently remodeled with new fixtures, beautiful tile, and rustic hammered-copper sink with distress-finish cabinet, oil-rubbed bronze finish fixtures, decorator window, and operable window in shower/tub area.
The master suite is a luxurious size with vaulted ceiling with fan, walk-in closet and beautifully updated bathroom, updated in 2008, featuring tumbled travertine floor, stone tile counters, double art-glass vessel sinks, oil-rubbed bronze finish fixtures, decorative mirror, walk-in shower, pebble tile floor, mosaic motif & product niche.
Outside the Pebble-tech pool is surrounded by beautiful oak trees and features an aggregate patio, natural rock features, and a black iron fence with two gated access points. The filter was replaced in 2015.
Bring your equine friends and walk up past the 60’ round pen to the 4-stall center aisle barn featuring a decomposed granite base, stalls with mats and paddocks, plus a separate 14x16 hay storage & tack shed.
Inside laundry room with upper cabinet storage and deep sink. 3-car garage. So many quality upgrades in this home including new carpets in 2015, three bedrooms painted in 2015. 50-year comp roof installed in 2010.
Close to everything but feels miles away on 10 very private acres. Great entertaining inside and out!
