In the style and type that is typical for the Grass Valley cottages we regularly preview in this price range, but in a neighborhood that is highly unusual because it is surround by homes that are generally newer, and on much larger parcels. This home is 1/2 a mile up a narrow winding road out of the small town of Rough and Ready, so the location is not near any city services. The home has both a well and septic system, which are now over 50 years old, so that is also a matter that would need to be investigated. Visual inspection showed that the roof had leaked in the past, and there is evidence of damage to the sheetrock near the chimney, indicating at least it needs new flashing, if not an entire new roof. I took a look at the well, and noticed it had a UV filter and a calcite filter too, indicating hard water, and possibly some bacterial contamination issues. This would need further investigation. Still, at $240,000, you don’t see much on a half acre in that price range. Put in a new bathroom get that roof fixed, make sure the well and septic are OK, and this home would be very nice.
