We sell a beautiful home overlooking west Redding

Check out this happy couple on the steps of their fantastic Tudor Style home in the hills overlooking west Redding.
MandJ_atHome3smallIt’s somewhat cliche, but very true. The best part of being a Realtor is the people you meet. Although this was one of the finest homes I’ve ever helped somebody buy, the best part *by far* was the opportunity to work on behalf of the couple you see sitting on the steps of their lovely home to be in Redding. Thanks so much for working with us! I think you are really going to love that home.

See the most expensive home to ever sell in California

“An estate has sold in the wealthy northern California community of Woodside for $117.5 million, making it one of the highest-priced residential sales ever in the U.S.”
Tip o’ the hat to fellow blogger Marc Beauchamp for alerting me to this recent home mega sale, as profiled in the LA Times. Scroll around the grounds below.

View Larger Map

Just for fun, I totaled the sum of all 493 homes currently for sale in the Shasta County MLS. You could buy them ALL for for $159,363,817.00. And that would get you the 15 (really nice) homes listed for over a million dollars. But only up to 3 million, because that’s as high as we go. I’m guessing the pay down there in Woodside must be slightly higher than the pay in Shasta County. Sweet property tax revenue for San Mateo County, too. I bet they aren’t cashing in their aluminum cans to re-open a fire hall. Congratulations to their real estate agents too, who must be trying hard not to full-on-happy-dance in front of their clients.

“Brigadoon Castle” in Igo sells for $491K. Photo tour.

This post was published 8 years ago. Please, read this page keeping in mind that this home may have sold by now. You can always check current status by calling or texting (530) 356 4500 The Address Realty DRE # 01710206

We had been waiting to see what this fascinating castle-influenced foreclosure home ultimately sold for, and this week it closed escrow for $491,000.
Brigadoon Castle in Igo CaliforniaBack when it had been listed for $1.7M, the agent described it thus:

“Tudor style castle was extensively renovated in 1996.Features lath and plaster interior walls, exquisite woodwork throughout. 3 story tower marks the impressive entry. The Great Hall has 30’ceilings with exposed scissor beams. 3 fireplaces built of Utah brick. Gourmet kitchen, Italian red marble counters. Sub-Zero refrigerator. 1200 sq.ft.Guest cottage. Year round stream. Beautiful stream.”

It really was beautiful. But it had been caught up in what seems to have been a ponzi scheme elsewhere, and then stripped in foreclosure. Now just a shell of its former loveliness. I had inquiries about it from as far as Great Britain. We showed it a few times, but ultimately our clients passed up on restoring this big project. Somebody bought it though.

For $35M “she has to do more than schedule an open house and bake cookies to attract a buyer.” How about a free iPad just for looking at the home? We’re told this lovely home is in Malibu. I would love to do a creative video something like this for one of my listings. Maybe for you?


It’s still for sale if you just have to have it. We’d love to sell it.

The most beautiful home for sale around here?

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, but no question this is one of the most beautifully photographed homes we’ve seen recently. 36336 Deer Flat Shingletown 96088 short sales in shasta county36336 Deer Flat Shingletown 96088 short sales in shasta county36336 Deer Flat Shingletown 96088 short sales in shasta county36336 Deer Flat Shingletown 96088 short sales in shasta county36336 Deer Flat Shingletown 96088 short sales in shasta county36336 Deer Flat Shingletown 96088 short sales in shasta county36336 Deer Flat Shingletown 96088 short sales in shasta countyGorgeous by any standard. The 35 supplied full-sized images of this Tahoe Style Shingletown home reveal incredible detail and aesthetic appreciation. It’s also among the largest homes ever listed for sale in our MLS as a 5780 sqft 4/4 on 3 acres. Representing the seller is agent Charlie Kramm of Platinum Properties. He writes of it:

“ABSOLUTELY STUNNING custom log home located on 3 beautiful acres. Incredible architecture throughout, top of the line features, radiant floors, wrap around composite deck, observatory, views from every room, great room, media/bonus room, 1200sq ft garage, custom wet bar, finished walk in basement with full kitchen & bath. Close to fishing, hiking, CC skiing, & adjacent to Sierra Pacific land.”

Although it isn’t mentioned, we think you should be aware that this is a short sale, which is to say the list price is less than what is owed the lender. Offered at $104 per sqft, it’s a price that seems to us you could not duplicate if you were trying to build it new. Not even close. There are no guarantees that the lender will accept an offer at list price, but if you are interested in such a home as this, it seems worth a try. If successful, the buyer will be getting an awesome bargain. The seller has requested showings by appointment only, so call us if you’d like to see it, and we can arrange it for you.

Call or Text (530) 255 4070

As always, you can find a complete list of short sale and other distress sale homes for sale around here at http://ReddingForeclosures.info

EDIT: I just re-read this and realized I never mentioned the price. The old saying is if you have to ask, you can’t afford it, but that may not be true here. They are only asking $599K.

Where are the REALLY really big local homes?

Blogger Marc Beaucahmp sent me a note:
“Reading this fascinating WSJ feature…
http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424052970203889904577201043455977600.html?mod=WSJ_hp_mostpop_read
…made me wonder: What’s the biggest residence in Shasta County? The biggest one now on the market?”

Fascinating question. Be sure to check out the article at the link. REALLY really big homes that are being built to house princely hedgefund managers and software moguls with mega-egos tend to be in the 50,000 sqft range. I don’t know of anything that large or luxurious that around here. Anyone else know of anything?

16,050 sqft 24/25 on OBrien Mountain offered by Aaron Nelson of Venture Properties
16,050 sqft 24/25 on OBrien Mountain offered by Aaron Nelson of Venture Properties

A few posts ago, we looked at the Top 10 most expensive homes around Redding, with only somewhat tongue-in-cheek hopes of enticing a new Facebook owner to look, or even their spinoffs, like newly enriched massage therapists or whatever. We did find this “pretty darn big house” on OBrien Mountain which qualifies for Marc’s “biggest one now on the market,” at 16,050 sqft. with 24 bedrooms and 25 bathrooms. Priced at $3.8M it hardly seems in the same league as the homes mentioned in the article.

As for the biggest one not for sale, a quick search of our MLS reveals an alarming number of real estate agents can’t count their zeros when entering square footage data. Not encouraging. Dozens of errors, but the only legitimate thing I found in there rivaling the Obrien home size was a Ranch Home in Hyampom of about 16,714 sqft, a 16/16 on 169 acres. Last offered for $1.995M in 2009.

We know of a few nice local homes that look rather palatial from Google Earth. Here are a few:

Provided I’m looking at the right house in tax records, this lovely home on the Sacramento River is about 10,712 sqft.

This home with a helipad in the Happy Valley area looks mighty nice. Not sure how big it is.

View Larger Map

This home in Tierra Heights always seemed pretty big to me from the ground. If I have it right, records say it’s a 6,292 sqft 3/4 on 3.8 acres.

View Larger Map

This one is for sale for $5.49M. The 5,600 sqft 5/5 house looks nice from the air, but also it sits on 717 acres, which affords one some privacy, shall we say.

View Larger Map

This home in Redding sits at the end of a private street. If I have it right, tax records say it’s a 6,979 sqft 4/4. Nice setting.

View Larger Map

This one in West Redding is for sale for $1.4M. We love this house. It’s a 6000 sqft 5/6.

View Larger Map

This big home overlooking the river in Redding is pretty visible from much of the river trail. It’s a 6378 sqft 4/3, if I have it right.

Here’s another one quite visible from the river trail in Redding. Not sure how big.

Again, anyone else know of some truly large homes, worthy of a modern Prince?
