5587 Badger Hill Rd. Pollock Pines
The Home: Ensconced on a secluded 42.8 acre parcel among the tall trees, this custom-built home has a decidedly rustic ambiance, yet replete with the latest up-scale amenities. The open floor plan contains 3604 square feet on the ground floor with an expansive finished storage area above the bedroom wing.
Main access is through the double door entry from the covered patio that is set up as an outdoor room complete with a fireplace and ample room for entertaining large groups. The GREAT room features beamed cathedral ceilings, tiled and carpeted floors and a wall of glass on the eastern exposure. The wood-burning fireplace is surrounded by an elegant sitting area. Other sections of the great room include a wet bar, gourmet kitchen and formal dining area. The guest powder room sits just off the great room.
The gourmet kitchen is a chef’s dream. The expansive island with granite counter top provides seating for at least seven and contains a food prep sink. All appliances are stainless steal. The gourmet 48” Thermador gas stove (six burner/griddle with double ovens) is augmented by a built in microwave/ oven combo near by. A trash compactor and dishwasher are located near the main sink. The built-in refrigerator matches the custom cabinets and the pantry is conveniently located within arms reach.
The wet bar contains a sink, wine refrigerator and seating for at least five.
A broad hallway leads from the great room to the bedroom wing. An impressive natural wood staircase leads to the finished storage room above. Under the stairway is a sitting area, ideal for quiet conversation.
Three spacious bedrooms share a Jack & Jill & Jane bathroom with triple sinks, a multi-head tiled shower and separate toilet. A large laundry room is located in the bedroom wing. It includes generous storage space, tiled counter tops and sink.
Double doors lead to the master suite featuring beamed, cathedral ceilings, fireplace, his and hers walk-in closets, carpeted floors in the sleeping area and tile floors in the bathroom. There is also direct outside access. A tiled steam-room/shower, claw-foot tub, dual level sinks with a vanity completes the picture. The office area is located just off the master suite.
Located near the home is an 18’ X 70’ covered parking structure, room for numerous vehicles.
Equestrian Facilities: The equestrian facilities are located just out of sight of the home. The six- stall barn contains a tack room and there is a paddock on each side. The impressive round pen is set in front of the barn. Parking is available for a fleet of vehicles and numerous riding trails traverse the property.
The Parcel: This tranquil parcel is blanketed with tall trees. A year-round stream feeds the pond near the center of the parcel, passes over the dam into a waterfall, meandering across the remainder of the parcel. The foothill location provides a natural escape from the valley heat during the summer and the noise and pollution of the city are far away.
Although the setting offers the ultimate in seclusion, Pollock Pines and Highway 50 are only a few minutes away. Lake Tahoe is about an hour drive and down town Sacramento about 45 minutes. The gently rolling hills are ideal for riding and offer the potential for vineyards or orchards. Possibilities are only limited by the imagination.
