You can experience luxury foothill living – without the snow and the crowds. Tucked away in the spectacular foothills of Northern California, Winchester Country Club is the ideal community for those who want to spend more time skiing this season, and less time in their car getting there.
Just 45 minutes from some of the state’s best ski resorts, Winchester Country Club gets you closer to the slopes, but still living below the snowline – so you can enjoy other year-round activities in a perfectly serene setting.
Situated on an award-winning Robert Trent Jones Jr. & Sr. golf course, Winchester is unique in its approach to home building, and takes into account its beautiful surroundings. “We make sure to maximize every vista, so that each homeowner is reminded of the spectacular views from all angles of their home,” says Gillian Chichester-Long, on-site sales at Winchester Country Club.
The house being built at 6010 Holly Oak Lane does just that. Set on 1.3-acres, this meticulously designed Chris Heinritz model offers breathtaking vistas of the foothills, as well as sightlines of the 6th fairway. With three bedrooms and 3.5 baths, this 3,176-square feet, single story home is perfect for anyone who enjoys hosting friends and family.
And while the views are impressive, the interior of the home is just as beautiful. Top-of-the-line materials and finishes can be found throughout, including natural stone and hardwood floors, travertine and porcelain tiles, and custom alder cabinets in the kitchen and baths. All baths feature Kohler fixtures, while Kitchen Aid stainless steel appliances and a pantry make the kitchen a dream for any cooking enthusiast.
“The open floor plan provides the ultimate in entertaining space,” says Chichester-Long. “This is a kitchen for après ski get-togethers. The large walk-in pantry accommodates plenty of supplies, always ensuring you have enough on hand for last-minute guests. But the two crowning jewels have to be the wine closet, and the generous island – a great space for gathering around and socializing.”
In the warmer weather you can move the party outside to the amazing outdoor deck, or just relax and take in the views. A professional landscape package with irrigation system means you won’t have to worry about yard work and can focus on doing the things you like to do.
Right now buyers of a Winchester-Built home or custom homesite will receive a special ski and golf package. New homeowners will get two ski passes for this season and next, as well as their Winchester golf membership initiation and dues paid in full for two years. They must close escrow on or before Feb. 29, 2016 to take advantage of this offer.
It’s quite possible to enjoy the best of both worlds and ski and golf in the same weekend. Less drive time means you’ll be home before the city crowds, and rested and refreshed for brunch and golf the next day.
