Lake Oroville Country Home

Yankee Hill, California

$549,000 | 5.69 ± Acres | Butte County

PROPERTY TYPE: Homes and Cabins


Beautiful Lake Oroville view from this spacious country home on 5.69 +/- acres in Butte County, northern California! Sitting atop a small hill, this home is positioned so you
look down the middle of Lake Oroville from the living room, dining room, kitchen, primary bedroom, a large deck, and even the laundry room! Its quiet rural location is a short drive off Highway 70, just 35 minutes from Chico. The home is built at the edge of the slope with a level entrance into the main floor, approx 2,120 sf, plus there is approx. 900 sf of daylight basement below, which has been finished (without permits) to include a bathroom, kitchenette, living area, and bedroom, with its own separate entrance and patio and lake views. Much of the home's interior is original but has been cared for, and the living room, dining room, and kitchen have bamboo flooring. The main floor is handicapped and accessible with a roll-in shower. Outdoors, the property has a variety of landscaping (shrubs, flowers, roses, etc.), garden beds, and a large mature orchard with a wide variety of bearing trees, including citrus and pomegranate, plus several grape varieties - it's well-established for those who are looking for self-sufficient living or even some farmer's market potential. The area around the home, orchard, grapes, garden, and landscaping has been fenced with a very high wire fence so that you don't have to share your crops with the many local deer and wildlife. The property could have horses or small livestock but has not been set up for that. There is leased solar to help with energy costs too.

This area offers great bass fishing, trout fishing, water sports, etc., with Lake Oroville reservoir and a variety of other water around.  Butte County is the home of both California State University, Chico and Butte Community College (which is less than 20 minutes from this property).  Chico's Enloe Hospital is nearby for medical care and Chico offers a wide variety of dining, shopping and entertainment options.  If you're looking for a peaceful country view property, with some room between you and the neighbors, make an appointment to tour this custom home and spend some time sitting on the deck enjoying the fantastic views and listening to the breeze in the treetops!
