Here's a neat 5 acre property at the 3,300 foot elevation in eastern Squaw Valley. It has a completely secluded 1994 custom home that enjoys terrific views of the High Sierras. This is an excellent offering that has some great extras.
The home has a neat open floor plan with a formal living room (or dining room) off of the entry leading into a large great room area with a family room and country style kitchen. The kitchen has new wood laminate flooring and an adjacent utility room with a large walk-in pantry and direct access to the attached 2 car garage. The family room has vaulted ceilings and Spanish Saltillo tile floors with a nice corner woodstove and a great eastern view of the snow-capped Sierras and Moro Rock. In addition to the home, there is a freestanding 864sqft shop/garage with a half bath that will make an ideal mancave. The shop has a brand new roof and the home was recently re-roofed. Finally, the home has a 7kw solar system that virtually eliminates your electric bill. Total electric charges from 10/10/2017 through 9/10/2018 were less than $100!!! This is an owned system, not a lease. Now there's a real value that will save you thousands of dollars in future electric bills.
We've talked about the home and all of its features. Let's take a look at the land. This is a highly usable piece of property. The land slopes up from the road. The entire lower section has been separately fenced for grazing. It has nice terrain with good pasture and an excellent coverage of mature oaks. This constitutes about 3 acres of the property. The upper section (about 2 acres) is separately fenced. This area has nearly level terrain with a natural forest of large oaks and open areas. It's truly like a park. There's a nice chicken coop and a storage building for feed, tack, or equipment. In addition there are 2 separate and complete RV hookups, one by the garage/shop and one by the home, so you will always be ready for visiting family and guests. You will find plenty of room for gardens and tree crops plus room for any additional outbuildings you might want to add. Water won't be a problem because the well log shows a terrific 75 gallons per minute. All in all, you get real functionality with true seclusion and privacy in an amazing setting that provides spectacular views of the Sierra's.
So, what are the downsides? The location in the far eastern portion of Squaw Valley means that commute time to the valley will be a bit longer, but still well less than an hour. And, the elevation of over 3,300 feet means that you can expect some occasional winter snow (not sure that's really a negative). Of course, that elevation also means you will have cooler temperatures in the summer and you have less exposure to the valley smog. Finally, the home is a bit dated and you will probably want to add some personal touches. It has, however, been well cared for.
This really is a unique property that has a wealth of special features. It's a great blend of form, function, and natural seclusion. Come take a look. We believe that you will agree. One final comment, this property is very well priced and the owners are firm on it. That being said, this property won't last, so don't wait. You will be too late.
