New Randy Parks Home Listing in Sacramento Absolutely Sparkles
Looking at the original cedar walls in the family room of this new Randy Parks listing in Sacramento almost makes me regret painting my rooms with cedar walls in my home in Land Park. Almost. The warmth and emotional pull of that family room is incredible. Lots of people tend to misidentify this wood, which was a very common material used by builders in the late 1940s and early 1950s, for pine wood because it features knots. But it’s really cedar, generally coated with shellac (remember shellac?) for preservation.
The family room is one step-down from the kitchen and is part of the original floor plan. The 8 windows on two walls are double-hung wood construction with sashes, and 7 of them open and close easily. One window needs the sash replaced, which is pretty good when you figure they’ve been in service for 63 years. All of this glass lends a spectacular view of the oversized yard.
If you need a yard for gardening, a place for children to play, dogs to roam, for sports such as volleyball or badminton, or maybe you prefer a big yard so you can survey all that you own and relish in your own privacy, this is definitely the home for you. The yard is only a small part that will attract you to this impeccable 1951 home.
First, it’s a Randy Parks home, which means it has random plank hardwood flooring and all of those cute built-in touches, along with quality construction. Home buyers really love a Randy Parks home because it’s timeless beauty. It never goes out of style and just becomes more beautiful with each passing year.
Second, all the floors in the 3 bedrooms are gleaming hardwood, because they’ve been refinished. This is a home that’s been in the family for 63 years, ever since it was built. The love and care is apparent every place you look. The cabinets in the kitchen are tall, run to the ceiling for extra storage, and they are painted in gloss with new hardware. The kitchen features a breakfast nook, too.
I could not find a scratch on the wall or even a pinhole from a nail that once held artwork. The wood burning fireplace is flanked by built-in bookcases on a wood wall in the living room. Dual pane windows throughout are low maintenance, except for the family room — and who in her right mind would change out those wood windows anyway? The sewer line has been replaced, and the roof is somewhat newer. There’s really nothing to do but move in and enjoy life.
