We moved from the city back to my roots in rural Butte County in 1997. Julio and I wanted to raise our children outdoors and free to run and explore. Our youngest just graduated high school, so now we are making our haven available for others and their children to run free on as well.
Walk the property to visit the alpaca, sheep, cow, kittens, dog, or chickens, or take a nature stroll down the country road. Star gaze without limits lying on the big house lawn. You can see the Milky Way clearly and the stars actually twinkle in the winter! Freely enjoy this quiet country space and fresh air. We are very close to many outdoor nature adventures.
Drive 22 min. to downtown Chico and Chico State, famous Bidwell Mansion, or Bidwell Park, 15 minutes to Limesaddle Marina on Lake Oroville or Butte Creek Canyon and the Honey Run Covered Bridge. Drive 7 minutes to Butte College or the Adventist Hospital, or just 3 minutes to Paradise for antiquing. Bike or walk the Paradise historic trail that follows the old railroad line through Paradise, visit the Paradise Depot Museum or the Gold Nugget Museum.
Cell service is good and we do have Wi-Fi . Due to our rural location, however, it is slower than you may be accustomed to. It is adequate for emailing , streaming works often, but it is slow for uploading and downloading large files. The TV has a built in DVD player and a flash drive plug in, or can be connected to a lap top. If you want to watch a DVD, we'd love to lend you our collection. If you need a band aid, a needle and thread, or anything for the kitchen that we haven't thought of, anything at all, just let us know. We have kittens and a Border Collie named Caspian who wander our property. The dog can be kenneled upon request.
