The historic “14-Mile Roadhouse” at 6540 Auburn Blvd., which was relisted this summer after a significant remodel, has now been on the market for more than 100 days — with three price reductions.
The two-story, 2,100-square-foot home was originally built between 1849 and 1851 and served those traveling through the region during the Gold Rush Era. Today, the quarter-acre property is surrounded by The Oaks at Arcade Creek apartment community.
Records show the former inn and roadhouse was previously listed in 2018 before the owner finally took it off the market. It was relisted in the beginning of August for $499,900, but has progressively been reduced to its current asking price of $425,000.
The unique property has separate living quarters upstairs and downstairs, each with their own entrance. The listing states the upper and lower quarters could attract estimated rents of $1500 and $1350 each, for a buyer seeking to rent out the home.
Listing agent Ron Benning in the property’s online listing describes the house as cute and historical, saying it has been extensively remodeled.
“The property has been painstakingly updated while keeping much of the original charm,” the home’s description says. “Most of the major big-ticket items were updated in recent years.”
Benning said a mother and daughter acquired the property last year with plans to live in the home. Records show it sold for $292,500, and Benning said the pair spent significant time and money on improvements while keeping the history of the home intact.
The pair decided to sell the house when their plans changed, although the real estate agent didn’t elaborate further.
