Charming Victorian built in 1880 and completely renovated over the years. Located in historic downtown Grass Valley, you are 3 minutes from the Center for the Arts, wine-tasting rooms, shopping, and restaurants. The house is slightly set back from the road, behind two huge trees, giving you privacy and quiet. This is our home, not a rental. It’s ideal for business or vacation trips.
We are global travelers and welcome people from all backgrounds in our home.
This is a very comfortable, relatively large home (2,240 sq. ft) with two bedrooms, an office/third bedroom, and three baths. Originally built in 1880, probably for an Irish or Cornish mining supervisor, it has high ceilings and still feels full of history, but it has been completely renovated with all the modern conveniences, including air-conditioning.
We are writers and consultants and live here when we are not travelling. Our style is eclectic. We like different spaces in the house and yard to think, talk, write, and socialize. There is a parlor with a piano, a dining room, a sitting room, a fully equipped kitchen, and a butler’s pantry. There is also a separate utility room with new washer and dryer.
Upstairs, the large master bedroom has a California king bed, and a delightful view over Grass Valley. We just redesigned and redid the master bathroom with loving care. The second upstairs bedroom is a bit smaller, with a queen bed. Although our son has now left for college, we have kept his graffiti on the walls as an ode to adolescence. To our surprise it actually adds to the room. The third room is downstairs. It is smaller, usually set up as an office, but very comfortable for two people when equipped with two single beds. The couch in the living area is just that, a couch. But it is large and can easily accommodate a tall adult lying flat, or a child for that matter. We have three partitions that can be used to make the area more private.
We work from home so have very high speed internet and different spaces for different activities. Ideal for someone with a family who might have some work to do or families on holiday who like to be together and have some privacy. Or a solo traveler who likes the space!
We love the idea of people enjoying our home when we are not there. We like the idea of diverse folk enjoying it while we are gone, adding to a joyful history of the house. It feels like a home. We hope that you will feel at home too. And we welcome honest feedback about how we could make it better for you next time.
Guests have full access to the entire house and yard. We will send you a code to enter the house so you can arrive at your leisure.
