By Mike Hazlip—
A four-bedroom, four-bathroom home in Citrus Heights, originally listed last year at over $1 million, has now seen its second price drop this year.

The property at 6444 Sylvan Rd. is currently offered up at $895,500, a drop of over $200,000 from its list price of $1.15 million last year, records show. The 3,048-square-foot home on a 1.48-acre landscaped lot is designed for entertaining guests, with features like two dishwashers, double ovens, and an outdoor tent.

The property was pending sale in June at $997,500 but saw another price drop in July down to $989,500. The home’s owner, Janis Shoemaker, said the initial price drop from $1.15 million was due to a lot line adjustment that reduced the size of the property.

Shoemaker, who is also the property’s listing agent, told The Sentinel in a previous report that she is moving on to “a new season of life,” and is looking to reduce the time and effort needed to maintain the property.

When she originally purchased the home with her husband, Shoemaker said it had boarded-up windows and the yard was in poor condition. Over the last two decades, she has worked to give the home manicured landscaping.

“When I bought that property it was an impound tow yard,” she said. “It was garbage. My husband and I did a ton of work there.”

Shoemaker says the ideal buyer might be a large family looking for a quiet private space away from the main road, or it could also appeal to a buyer wanting to turn it into a care home.

Additional information and photos can be found on the property’s online listing.
