Beautiful gleaming wood floors invite you into this home. Walls accented with field stone features and an easy open-living plan make it a delight to move from one living area to another. The views from the living room open onto the expansive mountain and meadow features of the country location. Steps away from the main living area is the wonderfully arranged kitchen area with the immediate kitchen-style nook – nestled into an East facing bay window and enriched with wood floors. Outdoor access is “just through the door…”
Situated in Wallace California, the community continues to reflect the easy and relaxed life style typical of communities with large tourist activities. Lake Comanche Recreational Area is just miles north of the property. The “census-designated place” known to the local community as Wallace, has a population of several hundred people and encompasses an area of 4.3 square miles. The Post office was originally founded in 1883, was closed in 1945 and reopened in 1951.
The original map of the town site was signed by John Herbert Wallace and for decades it was presumed that the town got its name from the surveyor. However, in the 2006 issue of the Calaveras Historical Society, local historian Sal Manna suggests that the town was actually named for the surveyor’s father, John Wallace who was a well-known engineer of the founding period.
Vaulted ceiling and a stunning stoned-faced fireplace are focal points of the master bedroom suite. French doors open onto the flagstone patio area of the backyard surrounded by the “domesticated” grounds. Arbor areas, planting areas and cultivated garden area are easily assessable to the backyard. Off the master bedroom is the well-organized walk-in closet and the master bath facilities featuring a dual-headed shower over an oval jetted tub enclosed in a glazed tile surround.
The other two sleeping areas share a bathroom, wood floors and beautiful country views. Both bedrooms boast of oversized closets with hinged panel doors. Far from the noises of the city, all the bedrooms invite the sights and sounds of county-living into the home.
Wallace is located in the extreme western part of Calaveras County, one of California original counties upon entering the Union in 1850. Calaveras County is one of the “gold country” counties of California with much of its history beginning in the gold rush period of 1849. However the county takes its name from the Calaveras River – named in the 1830’s by Spanish explorer Gabriel Moraga after his discovery of the remains of Native Americans along the river banks. Calaveras is the Spanish word for “skulls.”
One of the more celebrated residents of the County is the author Mark Twain, whose story “The Celebrated Jumping Frog of Calaveras County” is still celebrated today in the annual County Fair and Jumping Frog Jubilee.
