Perhaps a preview of coming attractions ... a personal paradise; located less than a 50 mile beautiful scenic drive northeast to historic Wallace, California hidden south of the Lake Comanche Recreational area is Southworth Estates.  One of those "estates" has recently become available - and it may be found at 7535 Southwood Court.

Situated in Wallace California, the surrounding community continues to reflect the easy and relaxed life style typical of communities with large tourist activities.  Lake Comanche Recreational Area is just a few 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 Wallaceand for decades it was presumed that the town got its name from the surveyor.  However, in the 2006 issue of the Calaveras Historical Society newsletter, 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.

Go down your private gated drive to a beautifully upgraded home.Three well appointed bedrooms surround the inviting Great Room concept home ... reflected in the upgrades galore! Situated on just over seven acres that range from wooded to meadow environments, rural living will rarely be better presented. Popular equestrian properties are found throughout the area, but this property would be able to support its own mini-stable. The close-to-the-house spaces include a stone in-ground koi pond and a second water garden pool. Parking should be no problem with the four-car garage. Located between the Lake Comanche recreation area and Valley Springs ... this home has it all!

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 family-style nook - nestled into an East facing bay window and enriched with wood floors.  Outdoor access is "just through the door..."

Vaulted ceiling and a stunning marble-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 from 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 over-sized closets with hinged panel doors.  Far from the noises of the city, all the bedrooms invite the sights and sounds of country-living into the home.

Wallace California Real Estate

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 well-known residents of the County was 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.

Special homes are available throughout the Central Valley of California.  If you are considering relocation to the Central Valley Counties of Amador, Calaveras or San Joaquin … call the team that can show you the way:

Jim - I'm not sure "they" discovered them ... but at least Mark Twain wrote about them!  ... BTW - great melody!

That looks like a really neat listing in a great little area, Jack.  Here's what I remember about the little town of Wallace.  One afternoon in the early 1990s, a friend and I stopped off at the little grocery store right on Highway 12, which probably could be considered the center of town.  There was an older gal that looked like an aging Annie Oakley.  She walked up to the door about the same time we did.  It was wonderful just being around her.  She explained that she lived at the house directly across the road, and been there pretty much all her life.  She was in her 80s, and had been born there, and remained.  The store keeper came out onto the porch and joined in the conversation.  He told Daisy that he had seen her a couple of evenings earlier, while she was on her jackass, and firing her shotgun at cayotes.  It may have been the early 1990s, but it felt like the 1800s for an instant.

I always wanted to go back and interview Daisy, and take pictures.  But I missed the golden opportunity.  I understand she died a few years later.  I hope someone chronicled her history and her story.

Jim - Today was the last day of teaching a new agent orientation class.  The time constraints were daily and tiring ... so I had to take a short "vacation" from both accounts ... but I'll be back in the rain this week.  Thanks for following up with me ...

Jack--Funny---your post really brought some fun and interesting comments!!  Love the property.  I just cannot believe some of the deals I am seeing in your state.  So many Californians wind up in Indiana, so we do hear a lot about your market.  Wonder if this one has sold by now?

I had to go to Google Maps to see just exactly where Wallace. Looks like a nice location to get some rest and relaxation!

Jim - It's a community built around the idea of "country mini-ranches" and tourism and recreation at the lake!  Several years ago it also became a "second home" market ...  Fortunately this property is under contract and slated to close on 4/25/11 ... to a buyer who can't wait to become part of the local community!

Jack,

Your presentation is well done my friend. You've done a great job and I know you'll get it sold quickly. However, buyers should call you because I'm sure you have a lot of great information and lots more to show.

Always, I wish you the best!
