About 11566 Valencia Road

Two beautiful, energy-efficient, custom homes, one straw bale and the other of earth bag construction, on a 45+ acre wildlife sanctuary on Deer Creek! Secluded yet only 20 minutes to downtown Nevada City, this magical property is an important part of the Deer Creek watershed with 2 year-round creeks and 3 waterfalls! The main house is a fire-hardened, 2 br/1.5 bath straw bale home bathed in natural light, with canyon views and artisan accents including curved, plaster-finish walls, radiant heat floors, a masonry stove, deep window sills, built-in bookshelves, and owned solar w/batteries, PLUS PG&E. The 2-car tandem garage has a large workshop and a root cellar. A small strawbale studio w/a propane fireplace, sink and loft sits on the hill just above the main house. The second home is a beautiful, 650-sq. ft., 1 bedroom/1 bath, earth bag house w/a large loft and its own well/septic/detached garage/driveway (PGE is shared). A fenced garden area includes a small orchard with apple and pear trees. Most of the property is sloped to steep, and all but the two building envelopes (under an acre) is held in a conservation easement by Bear Yuba Land Trust to protect the wildlife refuge from further development. Seller rent-back of the guest house is desired but optional.
