145 Laramie, Markleeville in Alpine County
145 Laramie, Markleeville, CA: Imagine walking out the back door and heading over to your own tranquil swimming hole. Or perfecting your fly fishing technique along your 600 feet of year-round creek frontage. If relaxation is your favorite recreational outlet, simply kick back on the 1,800 ft wrap around and covered redwood deck to listen to the moving water, singing birds and whispering pines. Serenely located on a park-like setting on 1.55 acres, this classic Victorian features a quality of construction rarely found these days. Three quarter inch red oak floors, ageless glass door knobs, Anderson windows, two fireplaces and a kitchen that will inspire chefs of all levels. Additional amenities include insulated interior walls and a 2,000 square foot garage which features a car lift and a shop. Upon entering the home one has two choices of directions to take. To the left is the first living area designed around the large open fireplace. To the back of this room is the formal dining room large enough to host large holiday events. From the right of the entry, one can enter the second living area which invites folks to bring in a favorite book and warm their feet with the free standing wood stove. From this side of the home and heading toward the back of the home, one will pass the downstairs bedroom suite. The country kitchen is located at the back of the home. The storage and counter space is amazing. There is an ideal place for a breakfast table as well as easy access out to the back deck area. Up the grand staircase, one will find the primary bedroom suite with a private hot tub, two spacious and sunny guest bedrooms as well as an additional bonus room ideal to be used as a home office or a 5th bedroom. This home is sold turn-key with elegant furnishing including the antiques currently found in the home.
Best of all, this home is located in historical Markleeville, the jewel of Alpine County, the least populated county in California.
