Sugar Creek Retreat

Callahan, California

$499,000 | 13.20 ± Acres | Siskiyou County

Charming and well-maintained mountain home with attached guest studio sits on 13.2+/- hillside acres, below the Russian Wilderness, and includes frontage on year-round Sugar Creek! The main home is a second-story living space of 1,648 sf with a great wrap-around balcony and porch, where you can enjoy the beautiful views and listen to the creek below. Below this is an additional 400 sf of finished space, including a room utilized as a second bedroom, a bathroom/laundry, plus a 2 car garage, and a great covered breezeway patio with a custom painted mural. This connects to a 450-sf guest studio with a full bath. The property also has two pole barns, a fenced ½ acre for livestock, two greenhouses, an organic fenced vegetable, and flower garden, a gated entrance, and is on a paved road. The owner states the well is 27 GPM and there are 5,000 gallons of water storage. It’s approx. 4 miles to the closest wilderness trailhead, less than 10 minutes to the tiny community of Callahan, and just over 10 minutes to the town of Etna and great dining at Denny Bar! The home has concrete board siding, a metal roof, and a defensible fire clearance. If you’re looking for mountain living in a quiet, rural community, make an appointment for a private tour of the Sugar Creek Retreat!

It's only a short drive to either the small town of Etna or the tiny historic community of Callahan. Callahan was a gold rush town and one time bustling with several thousand miners, but now is a tiny community of less than 200. There is still a post office, a small church, a historic cemetery, and a bar that also serves great steaks and carries a few necessities, along with offering live music some weekends.  Just up the highway, you reach the edge of the Trinity Alps Mountains and the Pacific Crest Trail, and it's under an hour to Trinity Lake for water skiing and world-class small-mouth bass fishing. 

If you've never been to Scott Valley, this quiet rural agricultural community has several elementary schools, a junior high, high school, medical services, shopping, restaurants, etc.  It's not far to the Siskiyou County seat of Yreka, which sports a small hospital, groceries, more shopping, and easy access to I-5 and Southern Oregon. Scott Valley is bordered by thousands of acres of timbered wilderness in the Klamath National Forest, including the Trinities, the Russian Wilderness, and the Marble Mountain Wilderness – an area is known for its scenic beauty, many small lakes, fishing, hiking, packing & horseback riding, the Pacific Crest Trail, blacktail deer, and bear hunting, and hidden caves.

Whether you're looking for a place to make a full-time home, or want a second vacation get-away, make an appointment to see this move-in-ready Siskiyou County country home today!
