Property Description

Here at Skylake, the neighbors that make up this 5 home gated community take pride in the lifestyle that’s been created here. From the beautifully tree-lined entry, to the serene lakeside views, you’ll be ready to call this stunning home on the lake yours. Custom-built, this home on 20 acres was thoughtfully crafted to be the perfect place to raise a family. Just 2.5 miles south of Chico, this hidden jewel is convenient to shopping, travel and wonderful schools. From the backyard, imagine walking down to your own dock and boathouse where you can ski, swim, fish, paddleboard or canoe to your heart’s desire. This recreational playground features a motorized boat lift, hot tub, beach area, children’s playground, and outdoor showers. At the end of the day, your family and guests can enjoy a “camp out” in the bunkhouse above the dock. The home itself is just over 5600sqft and includes a charming, separate, 1 bed, 1 bath cottage with a full kitchen. The 3 bed, 3 bath main home was designed with a split floor plan. On one side of the home, you’ll find a roomy 2-bed suite, complete with its own living room, office, and a jack & jill bath. On the other side of the home is the owner’s suite straight from your dreams. Here you will enjoy coffered ceilings, a 3-sided fireplace, jetted tub, oversized walk-in shower, and dual master closets and vanity areas. You will find yourself drawn to this luxury owner’s retreat with its stunning garden and lake views. A stately home entry welcomes you to vaulted ceilings and an open-concept living area where walled windows surround you with a panoramic view of the lake and grounds. The warm living room boasts a floor-to-ceiling rock fireplace next to built-in cabinets and opens into an expansive white, custom-designed kitchen with stainless appliances, a large island, walk-in pantry, and 2 dining areas. Three office spaces adorn this home, one of which resides in the upstairs turret with a deck and aerial views of the lake and countryside. Adjacent to the 4-car garage is a massive workshop and RV bay. With its large metal hangar door, this building is sure to accommodate all of your tools and toys! If this is not enough, the owner has added a 68-panel OWNED solar array that provides full electrical power to the entire estate at an annual true-up cost of only $300! The rest of the grounds include mature landscaping with fruit-bearing trees, a one-acre garden space, RV hook-ups, and an invisible dog fence. It’s truly a must see!!
