Day 2: Country Life

House number two!  I got a message from an old friend that I would be welcome to go look at her home in Easton.  It’s been on the market since May and she wanted feedback from another Realtor.  Cool!  As it turns out, I have been to this house in the past for a social visit and I vaguely remember what it looks like, so I was excited to look at it with a different perspective.

“Suburban LIVING at its FINEST on 1+acres situated among beautiful vineyards. Recently updated 3BD/2BA (2189 sf) main house + 2BD/1 BA (930 sf) guest house w/ kitchenette w/ electric range & refrigerator + laundry hook-up.

SUPERSIZE (approx 1,500 sf) RV garage, shop, or barn for tractor & farm equipment, Jewel’’ in Easton!!!”

First impression – Well, first of all, it’s super important to plug the address into gps WITHOUT transposing digits :/  After I got my head on straight and found the house, I opened the lockbox (first time!!), managed to swing the gate open, and approached the house.  The property needs a little exterior TLC, no doubt about it, but it’s super cute! I definitely won’t see features like this in town.  This is a ranch house, through and through. Wood shake roof, redwood walls, red brick on the inside.  It has a huge backyard with a pool and a really large guest house in the back!  There is also a nice sized loft with a balcony above the kitchen.

Speaking of the kitchen…THE KITCHEN!  Gorgeous.  Super cute red accent lighting above the island.  I am a sucker for granite countertops and I love the light marbling in the slab chosen for this house.  It really contrasts well with the red brick of the island base, fireplace, and arch.  It easily combines a modern flare with the rustic-ness of the house style.

If I were in the market for a country home South of Fresno, I would seriously consider this one.  If you’re looking for country living, on a spacious lot, I know just the house for you!!

Cheers,
