One of the early sites of the California gold rush, the city of Auburn today retains the historic charm that first put it on the map. It also retains the ability to produce rare gifts, as evidenced by this luxury view home overlooking the 17th green of the Darkhorse Golf Club.

The dramatic course elevations create great view potential, of which 23898 Darkhorse Drive takes full advantage with serene sightlines that cascade down green and over lush trees. The 6,665-square-foot home offers spectacular vistas from almost every angle.

A long pavered drive leading up to the five-car garage and an elegant walk-up to the entry door establish the home’s luxury profile from the front elevation.

Inside, distinctive details abound with handsome beams traversing the ceiling and complementing an elegant fireplace in the living room. Windows that wrap around a corner flood the space with natural light and beautiful views. Just adjacent is the gourmet kitchen, suitable for the finest chef with rich cabinetry, granite countertops, a center island, a custom backsplash, and commercial grade stainless steel appliances.

With a large bay window and ample space, the dining room is the ideal spot to gather with family for holidays, or simply on a Sunday night.

On the main level, the first of two master suites creates a sumptuous space with a private view patio and a spa bathroom featuring an immense shower, soaking tub, and high-end finishes. Upstairs, a second luxe master suite affords direct access to the outside and an incredible master bath with a corner Jacuzzi tub, fireplace, and treetop views.

The home office with its own fireplace is just one more space that makes this home uniquely desirable. Just outside the office, the allure becomes even more substantial, with a private heated treetop loggia warmed further by its own fireplace and overlooking the golf course and majestic mountains in the background.

This home is not just elegantly comfortable for everyday living, with four bedrooms and four baths plus two partials, but also offers tremendous entertainment potential with an entire wing dedicated to fun, friends, and family. A billiards room, home theater, and wet bar are included, as well as an outdoor kitchen and living room that invite the festivities outside.
