If you savor a magic garden and care that a property was developed with an eye towards being organic and water-conscious, this is your place. It was and still is a beautiful surprise, per the seller. Beyond the street-facing carport lies an exquisite courtyard; beyond the house lies a wide, expansive garden. As a master gardener the seller has cajoled and sculpted native plants into a work of art. A new owner has the option to keep goats in the goat barn, and chickens in the coop. Factor in an exceptionally friendly rural-feeling neighborhood. While not large and not substantially altered from its 1960s roots, elements of the original architecture such as overhanging roofline, higher ceilings in the living room, a large stone fireplace, and sliding doors to the garden from every room make the home a happy place to be. Scrupulously maintained, it is rare to find a property with such a feeling of being in nature and yet just minutes from UCD and downtown Davis.
