NO SMOKING IN HOUSE
The property - and most of California is a fire-hazard…guests must dispose of cigarettes, etc. in an ash tray full of water…never throw out a burning cigarette!
Interaction with GuestsOn 25 acres... My mother lives on property a country hill away. There will be little, if any, interaction between you and others... however the house is monitored. The NeighborhoodThe "neighborhood" is a country road with houses. Very quiet and private. Getting AroundThere is no convenient public transit. You have to have a car.
You may park in Gilroy and take the train to San Francisco or Sacramento. Other Things to NoteThis is my home. We built a lot ourselves, the ground is uneven and rocky. Stairs on all sides of house, for outside deck access. It's a work-in-progress. We will be away, but remember that my children and I expect to find things as we left them. I have left everything in the kitchen…so people who love to cook can find most everything they need. VERY IMPORTANT: there are wild turkeys, skunks, deer, bob cats, mountain lions, snakes in the summer, and poisonous spiders such as Black Widows, don't stick your hands in dark places/holes. It's the country…please be aware.
