Welcome to my Virtual Open House
Are you missing going to open houses in the Roseville Rocklin area? WELCOME to my Virtual Open House for one of the lovely single story homes for sale in Rocklin with a large lot – almost a half acre (if you round – it IS a half acre! With many people looking to buy a “social distance house,” this is a great opportunity for you.
One of the Single Story Homes for Sale in Rocklin With a Large Lot
As I write this, there are about 20 single story homes for sale in Rocklin. Some are in Springfield at Whitney Oaks – one of the lovely active senior retirement communities in Rocklin CA / Roseville CA area. These do have a 55+ age requirement. But most are not.
Of those 20 (this will, of course, change, ebbing and flowing as houses sell and more are added), there are currently only 5 single story homes for sale in Rocklin CA with a large lot of .45 acres or more.
The lovely home pictured here has been sold, but check out what others are available. 🙂
Rocklin CA Large Lot Home – Virtual Tour Begins
Check out this gorgeous and easy maintenance front yard, complete with a faux stream of river rocks. I LOVE those! How about you?
This ranch house in Rocklin CA (well, I think it's ranch – the tax documents show it as Colonial? What do you think? 🙂 ) has a composition shingle roof and a stucco exterior. As you walk up the steps and enter the home, you see will see the lovely semi-private glass windows in and beside the door. Stepping forward onto the tile entry of this lovely updated Rocklin home, and taking a few steps, turn left and you enter the living room followed by the dining area.
This living room is filled with light thanks to the beautiful and large window.
Walking through the living room, you come to the dining room with a lovely built-in hutch cabinet. A great place for your good dishes. My family China would look terrific there, along with some sweet knick knacks full of family memories. I appreciate the overhead light with the fan! Don't you?
Next comes the family room / kitchen great room. Very handily positioned with the dining area, too! I know that great rooms are very popular right now – many prefer just the great room/kitchen. But in this era of a coronavirus quarantine, having these two separate areas gives a quarantined family some very valuable extra space along with easy flow as well as some privacy for those dealing with working at home, school at home, and more.
Here are more photos to give you a better idea of the gorgeous updated kitchen.
Isn't this lovely! Check out the granite counters! Beautiful! And the easy-to-clean electric cook top, coupled with a gas stove. Plenty of space with all those cupboards, as well.
Now it's off to take a peek at the three bedrooms! The light and lovely master bedroom enjoys a fan, lovely windows, and …
…an en-suite bathroom…
…with a shower, granite tile…
along with a bathroom window.
The second bathroom also sports the lovely granite tile along with a beautiful tile bathtub and window.
One bedroom has a lovely view of the backyard and floor to ceiling mirrors.
I like that ceiling fan as well!
This bedroom enjoys another great ceiling fan along with two windows! Great natural light!
Let's Head Outside to See That Large Lot!
With the coronavirus, many people are looking for a handy “social distance home” that comes with a large lot. If you have kids, it gives them extra areas to play to make up for fewer or no trips to the park. It's also a treat for those working at home using laptops to have another area to retreat to for work on those occasions (rare, I hope) that you feel a bit claustrophobic. Or just to be able to work out side and supervise the kids. (Or in my case – the grandkids! 🙂 ) And ZOWIE – check out THIS back yard!
The “first yard” is great – lots of room, extra shade, a storage unit in the corner!
But check out the “SECOND yard!” Past the picket fence and short block wall along the back! What an AWESOME place for pretend play for kids! And a GREAT way to work off some of that quarantine weight!
When you get tired of walking around the block – go explore the yard!
And WOW! Check out the view!
As I understand it, this property backs up to a lovely greenbelt area. But, isn't this great —>>> the property goes well above tree line at top of stairs! It continues to the fence at the top of the hill. AWESOME!!!! I wonder if any of our Roseville turkeys ever meander over that way!?!?! 🙂 Bet some bunnies might!
Can't forget about the parking!
There's a nice big 2 car garage PLUS 2 possible spots for RV access.

Boomers and Seniors Looking for Great Aging in Place?
Regular readers know I am ALWAYS thinking ahead to practical aging in place options. I had those in my house for my parents and – what do you know! – I put them to great use when I was much younger but had a broken ankle and bedrest for weeks!
Single story is ALWAYS a wise idea for any age but especially for those of us who are, ahem, shall we say in the 55+ category. 🙂 And the best part of this home is that if we're very active boomers and seniors – we've got the stairs in the back to really get us in the mood to exercise – not to mention the awesome park down the street. Perfect for all ages including our cute grandkids! And when we reach a point where stairs aren't that practical, we still have that great yard, single story-ness, terrific park and more to keep us active and busy! A win-win all the way around. And that's especially true if you have grandkids who come to visit – what a GREAT yard for that!
