There’s room here to keep everyone happy!
1181 Humbug Way, Auburn 95603
5 BEDS | 5 BATHS | 3620 SQFT
Why We ❤️️ It:
- The Living Spaces. With 3,620 sqft of living space on two stories, there is room to keep everyone happy. The large family room and kitchen are where you're likely to spend most of your time... (more on that later).
- Great neighborhood. Not far from the freeway but nestled in a secluded neighborhood in Auburn. Lovely, quiet streets and close to walking/hiking trails.
- 3-car garage. Looks like a 2-car from the street but that’s because it extends to the back of the house, making it a “tandem” 3-car. TONS of space and storage!
The FULL Story:
This home has a striking front that you’ll be sure to notice as you drive up (You won’t have to worry about missing it when you drive by!)

The lanterned stone columns welcome you down the front steps up to the double doors. Take note of the manicured landscaping in the yard and along the steps.
First floor: Stepping into the home, notice the porcelain tile running through the foyer to the back living room. Lovely natural tones catch the light from the windows and chandelier overhead and feel inviting and comfortable.
Welcome guests in your formal living room/parlor to the right. The perfect spot for afternoon reading or entertaining anyone who stops by for a quick visit.
To the left of the front entry is the formal dining room, which has a separate hallway connecting to the kitchen, making dinner parties a breeze!
Keep walking through the foyer to the back and immediately notice the soaring ceilings that open up as you enter the great room. This is the heart of the home - with the gas fireplace, large entertainment area for even the biggest flat screen, as well as a large, open kitchen with plenty of storage, and breakfast nook!
Speaking of the kitchen, it’s beautiful, functional, and BIG. The island looks out over the family room and has a double sink AND dishwasher. The 6-burner stove will be your best friend when hosting dinner parties and large get-togethers.
The walk-in pantry is a great addition to the many cabinets already available for storage. Everything has a place...even the built-in workstation for a kitchen desk.
Before we head upstairs, don’t forget to check out the “guest wing” off the foyer. The perfect spot for an office or guest bedroom (with private entrance), it is accompanied by a full bathroom with stand up shower, plus cabinet storage in the hall.
Second floor: There is so much light on the landing at the top of the stairs... High windows over the family room down below let in so much sun, you’ll feel like you’re up in the clouds.
Around to the left, you’ll find the Master Suite, a somewhat secluded zone with double door entry to the Master Bedroom and a small, private hall to the laundry room.
In the Master Suite, you’re first greeted by a small alcove - throw a comfy chair or sofa over there and curl up with a good book!
The bedroom is big enough for a Cal King and then some! Lots of light in this room from numerous windows - feel like watching the sunset from your own bed? 🙂
Separate walk-in closets sit on either side of the hallway that leads to your private bathroom with a fabulous soaking tub. The tub separates two mirrored counters with sinks which sit opposite the stand-up shower on one side, and make-up vanity on the other.
Have kids? Frequent overnight guests? Both? Have no fear! There are three more bedrooms upstairs. A single guest room off the large landing and what might be a perfect “kid’s wing” with two bedrooms and full guest bath.
Outside: A lovely seating area welcomes you from the door off of the breakfast nook in the great room. Big enough for a few outdoor loveseats plus an outdoor dining table, you’ll have no trouble entertaining out here!
A vine-covered gazebo is the perfect, private spot for the hot tub. Turn up the jets and say goodbye to stress. (“Goodbye, stress!”)
The other end of the yard has the perfect spot for a couple of sun loungers so you can work on that base tan before the summer hits! Grab a friend and a glass of wine and sit by the fire pit in the corner seating area - perfect for picturesque spring evenings.
If you fancy yourself a gardener, take a peek around the side of the house and you’ll find room for planter boxes or garden retreat.
