This house is now for sale in Cottonwood, CA! Affordably priced at $225,000 we don't believe it will stay on the market for very long. Why should it?  We're talking about a lovely 3 bedroom home with a huge bonus room, a seasonal creek, inground pool, all on four acres!  The current owners have done a fabulous job remodeling some parts of the home such as, white shutters throughout, new recessed lighting, added a big pantry and new flooring.  Some of my favorite features about this house are highlighted below... Large Bonus Room: room just off the dining room area. It's a step down (maybe 2-3 steps) and very well insulated, it's been sheetrocked so it stays very cool in the summer. It's the perfect hangout place or man's cave!   You can't beat living by the creek. Ok so it's seasonal bu...

We recently spent some time with new, out of town clients. They are buyers with a very specific list of what they want (and don't want). I like people like them, it makes my job more exciting - and efficient! Hot on their list is a house with views, not just any views but jaw-dropping views, like this one. One of the houses we looked at on 16615 Benson Rd in Cottonwood, CA had by far some of the most incredible views I've seen in a long time! The MLS link doesn't do it justice. Truly on top of a hill with 360 degree views, this house on 40 breathtaking acres. This was a custom home, designed by the owners, and unlike some other custom homes, this was well thought out and made practical use of every space in the home. Here are some images I captured with my handy-dandy, smarty pants iPho...
