Sloughhouse Rd is a Stunning Place in Elk Grove

Sloughhouse Rd has a stunning Lake located in Elk Grove

This is a very special place where everyone that visits says 8109 Sloughhouse Rd is a stunning place in Elk Grove. Its history is a real-life love story. This lake is a symbol of that love. This short story below was told to me by someone who was there and knew these people well but I have not verified it.

There was a couple who were boyfriend and girlfriend for many years. She was a very bright woman who loved birds and orchids. She was a very active person, full of life. Her boyfriend was retired law enforcement whom I think must have had a heart the size of Texas. She had an accident which left her paralyzed. She sustained further injuries and had to be put on a respirator. Her boyfriend married her and they bought this ranch, 80 acres of paradise. He built her a house and created this lake. He dug out the dirt, planted the trees and plants, and he made the lake for her. It has a beautiful footbridge, a walking path, two islands, and a huge rock waterfall. This was important as it was what she would look at each day from her brick patio outside her room. She had to have 24-hour care.

Also, her caregivers would put out large amounts of birdseed on the grounds between the house and the lake. She was an avid birdwatcher and the seed would bring so many birds to land so she could see them. This lake was made for her by the man who loved her. You can feel peace on this property when you visit. It has been lovingly maintained by the current owner and is top condition all these many years since the owners passed away.

This listing is a beautiful place to hold open houses as Sloughhouse Rd is a stunning place in Elk Grove. Such an opportunity for the lucky buyer who ends up as the new owner. There are many peacocks that walkabout and all kinds of wildlife. The bird flocks that visit fly in patterns across all the majestic oak trees. I often see the silent beauty of the lake and I think about the love of this man and woman, who lived here and passed away after many years.

This property features 80 acres, 3 homes, an old dairy barn, and a professional workshop and a generator plus 3 wells. The property has a gated entry with two gates and a circular paved driveway. There is also a fruit orchard with so many fruit trees. One tree, in particular, is a pomegranate tree that produces hundreds of giant fruits. There is even a boat dock for fishing and a windmill.
