Lovely 5 Bed home swap in Modesto, USA
Our home is 380 square meters, half of it built in 1988, the rest added in 1999. The house is in a Contemporary Mediterranean style with white walls, several balconies and terraces, and tile or wood floors. There are two master bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms, three minor bedrooms, another bathroom, and a half-bathroom (toilet). The home is well equipped with 2 computers (all with DSL Internet Access), wireless network, 3 High Definition Televisions, an X-Box gaming system and stereo systems. There is central heating and air conditioning.
The house is on a bluff with beautiful views of a park, the neighboring farmer's vineyard and olive orchard, and our swimming pool and garden. The large living room and country kitchen overlook the garden and park. The garden includes an 80 square meter lawn suitable for badminton, many oak trees, several orange trees, and a vegetable garden. The salt water pool has a motorized cover and is 14 feet by 34 feet. The size of our lot is about 2000 square meters. The part of the park next to our house is primarily riparian oak forest so although we live in a suburban setting the impression from the back terrace and the back of the house is of being in the country.
Modesto is located in the center of California. San Francisco and the Napa Valley are less than two hours away, Yosemite National Park and Monterey/Carmel (the beach) are about two and a half hours away. Other tourist spots such as wine growing regions, the historic gold mining region (The Mother Lode), and the Sierra Nevada Mountains are 45 minutes to two hours away.
Modesto is a pleasant tree shaded city of 200,000. Our house is about 4km from the center of town which has over 50 restaurants, an 18 screen cinema, performing arts center, nightclubs, and other attractions. The nearest supermarket is about 2km. The park next to the house runs for several kilometers along the creek and includes undeveloped riparian forest, picnic areas, children's play areas, grassy fields, 8 km long recreational trail (running, walking, cycling), free lighted tennis courts and an 18 hole golf course. We have a gate that provides direct access from our garden to the park.
