Turn of the century home on 1.9 acres with Clear Creek running through it.

Clear Creek in French Gulch
Here’s a unique property. With 1.9 acres stretching across both sides of year-round Clear Creek, the setting is rare. The home was built when French Gulch was more of a thriving gold rush town. In the earliest days of the gold rush, French Gulch was a major mining town, and the only stage coach road to the north ran right by this home. Main Street in French Gulch is also Trinity Mountain Road, and is about 20 scenic miles from Redding, past Whiskeytown Lake. It’s a unique property looking for an appreciative buyer. Representing the seller’s interests is my colleague at Coldwell Banker, Realtor Jennifer Sunde. They are asking $250,000. She writes of it:

“Charming cottage feel w/wrap around porch and creek running through your backyard. Built in early 1900 this 3bed/2bath is one of a kind. House is in excellent condition. Built with ship lap siding and vertical grain fur, new windows & new metal roof. Front & Backyard landscaping is centered around the historical 160yr. old Town Ditch. Property also extends across the creek to other side.”

Not to worry about it being furry, we’re pretty sure she meant “vertical grain fir,” as in Douglas Fir tree wood. The point being that wood available to home builders at the turn of the century was of a lot higher quality than the second growth fir trees we have now. The house fits the look and feel of French Gulch, but with modern upgrades to the roof and windows. Want to see more?
