About the Property

Please Note: This property has been SOLD

In awe-inspiring Butte Creek Canyon, this property and home is a combination that adds up. With views in every direction, there is the south wall of the “inner bluff,” – call it the High Line. Nearby, guarding the eastern heights is legendary Castle Rock. Across the canyon is the Overlook Bluff on Skyway to Paradise. Wide open space to the east is Horning Ranch. Take a walk on your own private reserve down to the creek, along an access cleared for the purpose. Discover for yourself what makes this canyon what it is, Little Butte Creek. The creek-side frontage is spectacular. A natural dipping pool at the curve of the creek with sight lines up and down, gaze for the fish in the seasonal run. The parcel extends across the creek. Need mention of the residence? Custom built with a stylish eye and appreciation for the surrounding natural beauty, the as built conditions add to the overall wonder and ease of this place to live. Simple and clean designs equal an easy to maintain home with a focus on enjoying the outdoors. Each room is thoughtfully laid out. The living area incorporates the kitchen, dining and living rooms all to enjoy the views. There are quartz countertops, an island with seating and custom cabinets, a large panty that includes room for appliances, under cabinet lighting, decorative glass tile backsplash and stained concrete floors. Large glass doors open to a wide patio area and the essential fire pit. The primary bedroom has corner windows viewing the canyon, wildflowers and sky. Step outside and there’s the outdoor shower. The bathroom has the unique shower designs you wouldn’t expect, where the wave meets the canyon, including a window for light, canyon and sky views. The second “guest bedroom” with a view of its own, is near the hall bath. The laundry room and attached garage are right where you need them. An additional storage structure, recently built, and service area accommodates the well and electric backup generator equipment, new in 2019. Easy Access, 10 minutes to Skyway, without a signal! That makes a difference. About the end of the road on Honey Run before the rise to Paradise, just yonder from where the Honey Run Covered Bridge will rise again. Ask any nature lover and bird watcher and you’ll hear, “I would live there in a heartbeat!”
