About the Property

Please Note: This property has been SOLD

Tucked away down a secluded cul-de-sac lane on one of Chico’s hidden streets, a rare and idyllic estate sits among the mature landscaping of lower Bidwell Park. Redwoods flank the entrance of this incredibly designed French Country home to inspire your own storybook with its steeply pitched gable roof, oxidized, green copper gutters, trim and downspouts, terracotta vent tubes and rounded dormer windows. A half-circle driveway welcomes all guests while a separate driveway leads to the garages, enough for 4 cars. Established Red Japanese Maples line the entrance, greeting guests with a stunning wood front door with ironwork detailing. Once inside, the old-world terracotta tile floors and custom wood-beamed ceiling draw your eye to the European-inspired staircase leading to the second floor. Step down three steps on the left to enter the formal dining room or to the right, the private living room with 2 sets of wood French doors to allow seclusion. Just through the entry is the spacious kitchen featuring handmade tiles, a center island with sink and a cooktop with a hood reminiscent of a French chateau. Off the kitchen is a large laundry room with ample storage and a utility sink. Passing through will bring you to a back staircase which leads to a room above the garage, perfect as an at-home office. Up the main staircase is a large primary suite with a large walk-in closet and a view to the sparkling pool down below. Down the hall are two more bedrooms perfect for loved ones each with large closets and a shared bathroom. Heading back downstairs, the main family space off the kitchen stands out as southern light fills the spacious stately brick and stucco fireplace, custom wood beams and 3 pairs of French doors opening up to easy outdoor living. Classic exposed aggregate concrete surrounds the dramatic pool on one side and stately lawn on the other. An additional structure on the property houses a pool house with a full bathroom and a Murphy bed. Just outside near the hot-tub you’ll find a secluded outdoor shower and around the corner a large storage shed bordering the property on the west. On the east end is a separate 2 car garage complete with all of the exterior upgrades and inside another large bonus space. The 50-year Woodmore & Woodcrest collection roof holds 40 solar panels (12.8kw) installed in 2019. Every inch of this home brings a calm, classic feeling that puts everyone at ease. This home is truly an entertainers and private retreat.
