Every once in a while as I am searching the various real estate sites on the web (I can make the excuse to myself that it's "research" for work), I happen upon a town whose name calls me to investigate the area further. A couple of weeks ago I happened upon a home in Grass Valley, a small city in Nevada County in Northern California. I think to myself, "Grass Valley must be a lovely place". See for yourself:
This is the home I found on Historic Properties (although the listing is no longer there, so I found 21 pictures of it on Realtor.com).
I would love to restore this beauty. A "bargain" at only $889,000.
Or I could build a little cabin on hundreds of acres and become a cowgirl. Perhaps if I win the lottery some day...
The State Park, which used to be a mine.
The Yuba River.
The Nevada County Fair.
The tallest dog in the world according to the Guinness Book of World Records (no kidding).
I want to go to there...
