This home away from home is an oasis for the traveller that is passing through the capitol region or staying over an extended contract or holiday while commuting through the area. The home offers two spacious rooms with queen size beds and two smaller children/teen size rooms with single beds. The home has a pull out coach in the living room, a dinning room table that seats 6 to 8 in a cozy setting. The house has a gas stove and double oven that is adequate for quick cooking meals such as breakfast, lunch and dinner. The bathrooms both offer a stand up shower while one offers a tub. The backyard boasts over 20 fruit trees including grapefruit, limes, oranges, pears, and others as the season permits. The home was rebuilt in the late 1950's in a neighborhood of eclectic homes. As East Sacramento is a trend setting area, you will hear the light hum of the highway in the background at the same time as chickens clucking next door while you drink your cafe on the back patio. The home is best used for a touch base place space or place to relax between site seeing trips or office meetings. The master bedroom that has a crib and a loft bed is also available for an additional fee and deposit. Lastly, we are open to hosting rehearsal dinners for weddings or other occasions. Please ask about our visual and performing artists as well as military and veteran's family discounts.
While receiving my Doctorate in Educational leadership from the University of Southern California (Fight on Trojans!!) and working as a visual and performing arts administrator in the local school district, my husband and I purchased our home in Sacramento. We have been living at the house over the past several years while I work on contracts with the arts and school programs. My husband who was retired and an internationally known trumpet player enjoyed the local shops and restaurants while I was working working at the local schools with students and teachers. Our home in Sacramento has since assisted me with raising our three children and our new addition. At this time, we are currently working on contracts outside of the country and we have decided to list our second 'home away from home' on this website.
We purchased this property as it has a fantastic central location which is close to all our activities which include the Community Center Theatre, Wells Fargo Pavillion, Capitol Building, Sacramento Ballet, Sacramento Philharmonic Orchestra, Crocker Art Museum, Cal State Fair and Cal Expo as well as restaurants, shopping and great places for working in the fabulous 40s.
The large backyard with the double lot is what made us fall in love with this property. Who would of thought that you could find over 20 fruit trees in the middle of the city. While our guests and friends stay, we ask them to check and make sure that the sprinklers are working as the summers can get pretty hot in the capitol region.
