Secluded South Fork River Estate $1,495,000

It's a gathering house, made for family and friends to come together to cook, dine, drink, watch and listen to the South Fork River as it cascades over the rapids and flows by the home. The property includes a primary residence and guest cabin on 2.04 wooded acres along a beautiful stretch of the South Fork River. The guest house is on Airbnb as a vacation rental.

The home is a virtual tree house where every window frames a picture and every room has a deck so outdoors, sun or shade, is a door knob away.

What a magical spot. The landscape is mature with mighty oaks, giant boulders, redbud trees, Japanese maples, native plantings, forsythia, tall grasses, groomed pathways, river rock flowerbeds and a filtered Koi pond. There are dog kennels, a storage shed, potting shed and a 3 car garage with a built in workshop.

The home is 3,600 square foot and features redwood siding, tile roof, concrete driveway and a private well. An 8' X 14' Endless Pool is tucked in a shady spot just steps from the master bedroom and is beautifully blended into the natural landscape. A Jacuzzi hot tub overlooks the river and is a great place to relax under the stars.

There are 6 decks, each with a view of the river and a mountain panorama including Blossom Peak and Mount Dennison.

 

The home has an ideal vantage on the river. The river is close enough to be seen from the home and at the same time the home perched high enough to be safe from fast flowing waters.

The quality craftsmanship and attention to detail are evident throughout the home and grounds. The home was built in 1992 and has 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms. The cabin was built in 1988 and has 2 bedrooms and 1 bathroom. The home and cabin are move-in ready for your families enjoyment as another magnificent spring unfolds in the foothills of the Sierras.
