Closed sales and inventory continues to rise year over year in the hot Sacramento market, according to the Sacramento Business Journal, with the biggest jump being seen in the luxury market. “Third quarter of 2013 sales of homes priced at $900,000 or more are up by 26 percent in the same period this year,” it was noted.

That accounts for brand-new homes, re-sales built over the past several years, and the occasional impressive whole-house renovation that’s taken solid 1950s bones and re-imagined/expanded the residence with 2014 space and style and a lofty price.

810 Larch Lane is a three-bedroom, three-bath, single-story home on a leafy street in desirable Sierra Oaks Vista that has retained the charm of the former modest brick cottage while adding in luxury details, high-end amenities, and ample space. Built in 1950, the home today is a regal residence well suited for fine living.

The modern, open floorplan offers sightlines straight through the living areas, with a vaulted great room that creates a stunning space for gathering and entertaining.

The all-new kitchen boasts an expansive center island, sleek counters, white cabinets, high-end stainless steel appliances including a double wall oven, and a large pantry.

The adjacent dining area enjoys a pastoral view and easy access to the backyard through sliding doors, putting an emphasis on indoor-outdoor living in keeping with the desires of today’s homebuyers.

The sumptuous master suite also enjoys peaceful views as well as an oversized walk-in closet, a spa bath with a large soaker tub, glass shower, and glittering finishes on every surface.

Outside a large pool with pool house, a grassy lawn, ample decking, and mature trees create a resort-like space that complements the new interior.


810 Larch Lane is offered for $1,450,000 from John Gudebski of Coldwell Banker Residential Banker Sacramento-Sierra Oaks.
