Location: Pioneer, California
If you’ve ever dreamed of owning a ranch house that straddles the line between modern and rustic, this three-bedroom, two-bathroom house in Pioneer, California, 60 miles east of Sacramento, is the ticket.
The 1,400-square-foot home sits on more than four acres and is surrounded by 24 fruit trees, a small fish pond, a backyard, garden, and a stream. Think of it as wilderness-lite.
Inside, the house features quartz counter tops and exposed-beam ceiling, which gives the space a modern-house-in-the-woods feel. The open kitchen is attached to a breakfast nook and leads into a spacious living room with a fireplace. The entire space is outfitted with hardwood floors that create a warm contrast against the white paneled walls.
In case the design-savvy touches made you forget you’re on a ranch, the house’s windows look out onto a small red barn that can be used for animals or storage—it’s up to you to choose how yee-haw you get.
The property at 24377 State Highway 88 is offered at $415,000.
