5020 Nitta Yuma Drive

Sold for $1,310,000 in June 2015 by Terri Bass.

This home is actually a century-old log cabin built in 1840, completely transformed with a modern, up-to-date addition in 2003 that envelopes three sides of the cabin–unique, charming and much larger than it appears. It is nestled on 4 acres in the prestigious area of Harrods Creek on Nitta Yuma. There are expansive views of woodlands and nature from the massive bank of windows across the back of the home. The outdoor living spaces offer a pool, hot tub, cobblestone terraces and multiple areas to take full advantage of the ultra-private setting. Ron Wolz of Bittners and Pace-Brown Company, who specializes in log cabin construction, oversaw the thoughtful renovations, keeping continuity in design. Attention to detail is seen throughout; beautiful hardwood,custom cabinetry and an earthy color palette that brings a very elegant, but comfortable “feel” to this home. The large first floor master suite offers serene views and access to a balcony leading to the pool. The kitchen is truly a chef’s dream and open to a cozy hearth area and informal dining. The lower level could easily serve well for multi-generational living or a private guest retreat. Exceptional home and location.
