Nostalgic turn of the century home, filled with history and original furnishings. Built by Lois Boise for his family who emigrated from France.

The house sits on a .89 acre lot and includes the adjoining lot .17 acre creating an acre of land with electric meter, water and sewer hookup, possible for another home site. Lots of open space outside with olive trees and pomegranates. Maybe a great opportunity for a B&B! Property is zoned for both Commercial and Residential. You have to see this property it is amazing!

    This home gives off quite the vibe. It’s time to lift the veil and cast some light into the rooms, take out the paneling and go easy on the kitchen. Nice view I wonder if you can see sun rise or set?

      Taking off the paneling would reveal the diagonal redwood boards, the same ones you can see in the stairwell. Plasterers were few and far between in the Gold Country, but lumber was plentiful, so the interior walls would be wood. Muslin was then tacked to the wood, wetted then allowed to shrink and tighten. This would provide a base for wall paper. This wasn’t very energy efficient, so if the outside walls weren’t sealed well, you can see your walls breathe when it was windy outside.

  2. yes– and the ceilings are quite high, which is always nice!!!

  3. This house is set in a wonderful California Gold Rush area! I live an hour’s drive away from it, and used to drive into the town often just to drool over this house. It’s set on a double lot (so, one acre total),and begs for someone with a pruning saw to take it over. Yosemite Nat’l Park’s Ahwahnee Hotel is a 1 1/2 hours drive away, and I believe naturalist John Muir walked thru this town to Yosemite back in the day.

    If you lived in the town–Coulterville–you could park/forget your car and walk to the general store, florist, city museum, cafe, or city park (with its public swimming pool).

    Don’t let the metal roof on the house put you off. Coulterville is in the middle of Calif wildfire country. I imagine this house has successfully survived many fire seasons. It’s not unusual for the main street of town to be the setting for many “THANK YOU FIREFIGHTERS” informal parades as each summer progresses.

    If I wanted to stay in my home state of California, I would buy this house in a heartbeat. The stone work in the yard and house are a historic work of art in themselves.

    I. Want. This. If my kids were out of high school I would suggest the move to my husband as he can work remotely.
