A PILOT’S DREAM
Rare ‘Fly-In’ Home on Northern California’s Trinity Lake Offers an Escape from the City and a Wealth of Recreational Opportunities
241 Lakeview Drive, Trinity Center
Just an hour and a half flight from the Bay Area, Northern California’s Trinity Lake, and the surrounding Trinity Alps offer an escape from busy city life – and getting there is a breeze when your destination is a rare “fly-in” luxury home just off the water. “This dream home is ideal for pilots who want to get away and enjoy relaxing in the gorgeous landscape of the lake and mountains,” explained listing agent Doren Morgan of California Outdoor Properties. “Away from the hectic nature of the city, the town of Trinity Center is a gateway to enjoying the natural wonders of a 500,000-acre wilderness that is less traveled than many national parks in the state.” The home offers direct access to the 3,125-foot runway at the Trinity Center Airport – the only airpark on a lake in California – and a 2,646-square-foot hangar ideal for parking a small plane or helicopter.
Living spaces in the 4,125-square-foot home occupy the levels above the hangar, allowing for beautiful views to the mountains across the lake from nearly every room. The main level features an open kitchen, dining and living area with large picture windows, and a game room with a wet bar off the living area that allows for indoor entertaining. The master bedroom and bathroom, second bedroom, loft space, and an office ideal for the executive who wants to work remotely are found on the upper level. Accenting the home are rich woods like alder cabinetry and doors, mahogany stairs, old-growth Douglas fir ceilings, limestone and soapstone countertops, and oil-rubbed bronze fixtures. A three-bay garage provides parking space for those arriving by land.
Outdoors, a large deck can be accessed from the dining and living areas and game room, and the half-acre property includes gardens with plants native to the surrounding landscape, eclectic yard art, a gazebo shaded by trees, and several other seating areas.
Beyond the property, a wealth of recreational opportunities surrounds Trinity Center. Trinity Lake is the third largest lake in California, with 145 miles of shoreline, making it a fishing and water sports destination. Cast a line for smallmouth and largemouth bass, kokanee salmon or rainbow and brown trout, or go houseboating, speedboating, or waterskiing. Anglers will also find king salmon and steelhead trout on the Trinity River.
The striking jagged peaks of the Trinity Alps can be seen from Redding and the Sacramento Valley to the southeast. The Shasta-Trinity National Forest offers hiking, camping, and hunting opportunities, with the area being known for its blacktail deer. And if you’re looking for solitude, the pristine Trinity Alps Wilderness, the second-largest wilderness area in the state, has plenty.
