Nestled in the Pla Vada tract of Soda Springs, a mere minute walk to the Yuba River, this cozy A frame has so much potential. Listed at only $209,900, it’s easily one of the least expensive homes in the area. While older and a bit neglected, as a designer, I can tell you this house just screams ‘potential’. Backing up to forest views, the house has both a front and a back deck and overlooks a front yard that given some wildflower seeds and a few native ornamental bushes could be the epitome of the word ‘charm’.

The interior has an open floor plan with a wonderful wood burning stove, perfect for keeping you toasty warm on those crisp winter days as you watch the snow fall from a wall of windows. Summer finds you close to a plethora of hiking trails and lakes in addition to shopping and dining, as Truckee is only a few minutes away.  With easy access off of I-80, this is the perfect 2nd home for a quick zip up from Sacramento or the Bay Area.  Planning to live here year round? This home’s price point is perfect for a first time home buyer.

I specialize in Kitchen and Bath Design, and I can truly say that the kitchen with a little bit of effort and a small investment could be so very wonderful. It already has a working vintage range that can be the centerpiece of an inexpensive and much more useable kitchen update.

There is a small downstairs bedroom with a lot of potential and a huge loft bedroom that has a large area perfect for a small office that overlooks the wall of windows and the living area below.

The bathroom has a certain mountain charm to it and is good to go, with a full bathtub for soaking after a hard day of skiing or hiking. Or update it with a large walk in shower if you want something more contemporary and elegant.
