The house was built in 1986 and has been a weekend vacation home for the original owner. The ranch includes a large barn and work shop and has a very good well plus water rights from an irrigation ditch. There are several ponds and the whole ranch is a bird and animal paradise.

Located in the Sierra Foothills the ranch is just minutes from the entrance to Sequoia National Park and Lake Kaweah and backs up to a private ranch.

The home literally glows with lanterns and chandeliers lighting the home inside and out and every room opens to a large veranda, balcony or screened porch. There is a fire pit in the front yard and walking trails and bridges over seasonal streams throughout the woodland.

Can you imagine the special times you could have with family and friends when you leave the hectic world behind and retreat to this magical spot. It's so private, quiet and peaceful.

The ranch features massive rock outcroppings, seasonal streams and ponds, oaks, sycamore, Manzanita and a huge panorama from Moro Rock to Alta Peak, the Eagles Nest and Blossom Peak.

A tree lined gravel driveway leads past a beautiful totem and into the heart of a giant 200 year old oak forest.

The grounds are lush and beautiful with seasonal streams, migrating birds, wisteria, flowering bushes, roses, pomegranate, ferns and a vegetable garden.

A wisteria covered walking bridge creates a magical entrance to the home. The great room has large pine posts, a tile floor, an open kitchen, a built in china hutch, wagon wheel chandeliers, a fireplace, two sets of double doors opening to the veranda and an open staircase to the second level.

The downstairs features a kitchen/dining great room and living room, one bathroom, a laundry room, mud room, office and pantry.  The massive Valley Oak table is included in the purchase. The great room shares a fireplace with the mudroom.

The intimate living room has a fireplace and double doors that open to the veranda. The living room fireplace is shared with the study.

Large double doors off the great room open to a yard with a large fire pit.

There are 4 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms upstairs.

Each room has its own verandah or sleeping porch. Two bedrooms have fireplaces.

The owner grew up in Africa and the home reflects some of that cultural influence. The "Out of Africa" room features colorful murals and art and opens to a screened porch.

There are 2 large bathrooms upstairs each with dual sinks and private shower and toilet enclosures.

The upstairs bedrooms open to a foyer that runs the length of the home with a vaulted ceiling, skylights and double doors at each end opening to the veranda.

There are many private retreat spots and trails to enjoy as you meander around the grounds.

 

A number of small out houses and an enclosed pen and fenced yard offer a variety of options for gardens and animals. I loved seeing the chickens and sheep; reminded me of life on the farm.

 

      

Rough mountain roads have been cut to be able to access much of the 70 acres and the 2 undeveloped building sites.
