A Citrus Heights home with partially completed repairs after being damaged in a series of storms in January is on the market for $429,000, according to a listing from residential real estate website Zillow.

The home at 7591 Twin Oaks Ave. was damaged in January 2023, when a tree from a neighboring property fell across the garage. Sentinel photos from the time show the garage destroyed, with debris piles in the driveway.

The current listing shows framing for the garage is up, but an incomplete roof. A description for the listing says work on the garage has begun, but needs to be finished. The interior is described as being “in live in ready condition,” according to the listing.

Built in 1964, the 1,465 square-foot home has three bedrooms and two bathrooms and sits on a quarter-acre lot, the listing shows. The home was last sold in 2019, for $365,000.

The listing says buyers must come with “cash or hard money,” meaning buyers with conventional loans cannot buy the property.

A prior report from The Sentinel shows the home was one of the most heavily damaged properties in Citrus Heights after a series of storms struck California in the first weeks of 2023. The Black Angus restaurant along Greenback Lane was also damaged when a tree fell on Jan. 10, and downed trees were reported throughout the city as crews worked to remove debris and clear roadways.

Citrus Heights City Manager Ash Feeney gave the City Council a report in mid-January saying the city’s General Services Department fielded more than 400 service requests during two weeks of storms. The call volume was about three times higher than normal, he said.
