SOLD....This is a very unique property located at the 4,200 foot elevation in Pinehurst. It has frontage on Hwy 245 and consists of 2 separate parcels totaling 18 acres.
Pinehurst is a historic logging and recreation community dating back to the 1800's and located only 8 miles from the entrance of Kings Canyon & Sequoia national Parks. This is an area where many people have built summer cabins and vacation get-aways. Elevations range from 4,000 to 5,000 feet, so the area is cooler in summer and does receive snowfall in the winter.
This property consists of 2 parcels that total just under 18 acres (8.09ac & 9.82ac). They are hillside lots that front directly on Hwy 245. The property has a terrific western view of the San Joaquin Valley and the Coast Range beyond. On a clear day, the view is over 100 miles. Much of the land is open with a scattering of conifers and black oak. Terrain varies from hillside to bench areas with a seasonal stream in the center. Electric service does go through the property.
Any negatives? Because Hwy 245 is a state highway, an encroachment permit will be required from Cal-Trans for a driveway. Location from the valley is about 50 miles, so travel time to valley services will be a little over an hour.
This really is a pretty property with awesome views and enough land to provide some real recreational use alternatives. We don't get many of this size. The fact that are two separate legal parcels provide additional flexibility in potential use and development.
