6221 Butterfield Way, Placerville



This stately home commands sweeping views of the surrounding Greenstone County landscape and the foothills with Pine Hill in the distance. This home was built and expanded with the country lifestyle in mind. 

The welcoming entry with marble floors leads to the formal living room with bayed windows on the view.  The “patio room” features French door entrance, beautiful tile floor, a woodstove with brick hearth, French doors out to the pool area, and bay windows on the sweeping views.  The spacious farmhouse dining room features oak floors, elegant ceiling treatment, a dining bar and pass-through to the kitchen area, as well as double-sided upper cabinets, large pantry, and an architecturally pleasing arched entry to the kitchen.  It also has French doors to the patio perfect for setting up the barbeque. The kitchen has a gas cooktop, double ovens, dishwasher and trash compactor, and a microwave niche in one of the pantry areas.  Its updated white cabinetry and dark granite offer a contemporary spin on this country kitchen design.

The beautiful freeform pool has two waterfalls and decorative native rock as well as expansive decking to enjoy outdoor meals and entertaining, and an upper patio and an area to garden.  The fun and entertainment doesn’t end with swimming. There is a full-size horseshoe pit too! The pool area is fenced and gated.

Enjoy the sunset views from several patio locations.

Upstairs you will find a beautiful and spacious master suite with a sitting area and a recently updated bathroom.  Two secondary bedrooms, one quite spacious with corner windows, share an updated bathroom.

The split stairway provides privacy for the sleeping areas and access to the family room (1st bonus room) which is light and airy with a wall of windows and two ceiling fans.  It has plenty of space for any recreational endeavor from media center to game room and features a large wet bar with lots of countertop area, contemporary tile backsplash, beverage refrigerator, and plenty of storage- both upper and lower with charming glass panel cabinet doors.  The ambiance is enhanced by the freestanding gas log stove and brick hearth. 

The second bonus area is accessible through the Family Room. This addition was created to provide home office space but is easy to imagine it becoming a private guest or in-law suite with two separate rooms, lots of closet storage, its own full bath, and private access from the mudroom off the second 2-car garage and carport breezeway below. 

Remodeled bathrooms begin with the updated half bath off the living room area and an elegant master bathroom with an inviting soaking tub beneath the bay windows so you can relax with a beautiful view!  The “kids bath” has updated tile and beadboard wainscoting.  And don’t miss the two bathrooms in the family room / bonus room areas - a half bath off the media/entertainment family room – and a full bath for the office/game room (which makes this a perfect place to accommodate long-term guests, boomerang kids, or the inlaws).

In addition to all the amenities found in luxury homes, this home has abundant storage with huge walk-in closets in the bonus room, double closets in the master suite, two pantries, and cabinets in the laundry room,

For the car or boat enthusiasts, not one but two attached two-car garages, one with a deep bay to hold the boat or RV and a two-car covered carport.

Bring the animals. There is a barn/ag building with covered stall and hay/tack storage.

A seasonal creek runs through the property with blackberries and abundant wildlife. If you know where to look you can see the foundation of an old barn from the original Sweeney Ranch.

The current owners have been improving the quality of this home since 1995 and have had a horse and a pony on site and enjoyed riding the Greenstone Country trail system with access to the trails from two different corners of the property. 

Greenstone Country: A rural, idyllic, pastoral landscape with rolling hills, oak trees and over 250 acres of open space with miles of riding and hiking trails.  If you are not familiar with everything that Greenstone Country offers in amenities, be sure to visit the community barn and full-size arena, 3 lakes for swimming and fishing, playgrounds, tennis & volley ball courts, and more - all for the use and enjoyment of community members and their guests.  For more information visit Greenstone Country HOA (http://greenstonecountry.org/).
