SINGLE FAMILY RESIDENCE ON 9.6 ACRES
16 YEARS OLD
Three bedrooms converted into two, two full bathrooms home, of 1,800 square feet, with a 600 square feet detached garage, was installed in 2002. As a fully level and all useable vacant lot, 90 trees and 120 plants were installed, along with a pond and a waterfall, embraced by sod, plus a three tiered fountain, were placed at the front four acres of the property. The low voltage night lighting provides a beautiful roadside view of these areas while traveling past this property. The sod and plants around the sod area of the pond are watered by a substantial automatic irrigation system.
This residence sits in a meadow by itself, on the side of the road which requires 320 acres before any property can be subdivided into two lots. The back of the property, with its extensive windows, and French doors, allows the unobstructed, eastern facing, treed hilltop views to be seen with the colorful and unobstructed morning sunshine.
The property has 242 itemized features. The addition of the 27 photographs provides a visual description of this property.
There is a septic system designed for a three bedrooms home, and there is also an existing water treatment system and 2,500 gallons water storage tank, with two pressure pumps in the 30 foot deep garage. These items provide the legal allowance of an addition to this property at any time in the future. The property also allows for a legal, secondary unit, attached or detached, on this property.
While from the roadside, the house appears as a cabin, this home has an open floor plan, with 170 square feet of window area. The simplicity of the home's exterior appearance was intentionally done for seismic safety and wind resistance. In addition, the curtain drain takes the underground rain water run-off to the back of the property.
The prepared package provides all of the general information and disclosures that a prudent buyer could utilize to make a decision before purchase. Every manual and documentation for the equipment and operational system exists. There are two thousand pages of documents, including every receipt and invoice statement, along with twenty pages of blueprints related to this property. Everything is highly organized and fully detailed. A pre-made purchase contract is also available. The escrow period duration is flexible for buyer.
This property has 18 handicap capacity features. The lot is level and the garage and home are easily accessible. The property is environmentally friendly with an on-site sewage treatment system. There are no dead or dying plants or trees, and the property is in full compliance with all fire safety codes and regulations.
The fully paved Branscomb Road is a major transportation road, connecting two California State Highways; being Highway 1 and Highway 101. This area is composed of wide open spaces, and the only view corridor on this entire road is where the subject property is located.
The driveway on the property has a substantial rock base with a thick, and sealed, blacktop surface. The property was developed over 12 years, into a park-like setting, yet, with all of the on-site amenities that a city person would hope for in a country home. The sides and rear of the property are fenced.
Everything was done by permits, when permits were required, and everything was built at, or above, building code requirements, and everything is guaranteed to be operating in full and proper fashion. Any defects discovered in any of several types of property inspections will be cured at property owner's expense, prior to the close of escrow. This home is deemed a manufactured home, but most of the work was done on-site, and the upgrades exceed those of most homes that are constructed on-site. For example, the roof load is 40 pounds per square foot. The sheetrock was screwed into the walls. The insulation is from R-22 to R-36. The amenities list will confirm the extensive qualities of this property.
