Access to this property is down small maintained country streets and lanes to an iron entry gate. This is it! The end of the road, no properties beyond, near totally privacy! You are struck by the serenity, the expansive view of the lake, and the wind in the trees.

This unusual location includes 4.8 acres of property. Nevada Irrigation District owns the lake and also owns the thin strip of lake front land all the way around the lake in order to adequately maintain the pristine quality of the lake and environs. This means that homeowners are not responsible for lake maintenance, there is no HOA or fees, but it also affords those owners additional dedicated property. This particular lot enjoys ¼ mile of ‘lake front’, and an additional approximately 2 acres of open space lake front NID land.

The entire property is filled with 100 foot tall trees that sway with the breeze.  The sellers have cleared just enough trees from the property to afford fabulous views of Rollins Lake and still give you the shade and privacy that is so special to this area. There are no neighbors or other structures in sight, just the Sierras, trees, deep blue water, deer, owls, raptors and the occasional honking geese. Whether you are on the deck sipping coffee and watching the beautiful sunrise over the mountains, reading, sipping a drink at sunset or star gazing at night, the experience is magical. You can hike the private trail from the deck to the lake and hop in a canoe and head out to explore miles of pristine sierra water and wind.

Located just a few country roads from the property is a post office, a little country restaurant, very nice wineries, quaint farms, produce stands and more. Most people prefer to just relax with the view when they arrive, but for those who like a quick dinner out, the town of Colfax is only a few miles away, where there are plenty of restaurants and pubs. There is also a train station heading to Sacramento in one direction and over the Sierras to Reno in the other.

In addition, Rollins Lake is only 10 minutes to the quaint artist town of Nevada City, the historic Gold Rush town of Grass Valley, hiking and biking, exploring gold mines and ghost towns and organic farms. For skiing, Sugar Bowl Ski Resort is only 45 minutes away!
