Williams Creek is known for its impressive homes. At first glance, this ranch at 8135 Sycamore Rd. doesn’t look like one of them. Behind the painted brick exterior, though, is a real gem.
The sellers spent a year renovating the four-bedroom, three-and-a-half-bath house with resale in mind. Among many updates to the 1955 home: a brand-new kitchen, overhauled baths, hand-scraped wood floors throughout, a two-car garage, and a concrete ramp in the back for accessibility. The best feature is a great room with a cathedral ceiling, fireplace, and salvaged barn-wood accent beam. The space offers a captivating view of the home’s .81-acre lot. “It’s very private and deep. It’s almost a park-like setting,” says agent Matt Kressley with F.C. Tucker Company.
Although one-level living is attractive to a buyer who is downsizing, the 3,546-square-foot house was designed to appeal as a forever home. “You could essentially move in and never move [again],” Kressley says. The ranch hit the market last fall at just over $1 million—slightly high. After a brief time off the market, the house went back on in January at the current, adjusted price of
$999,988. It is now listed at $974,900.
