There is no brag, just fact, in the statement that this property has the best views on the mountain. We have here 2 lots with 10.11 acres total located at the end of a very private cul-de-sac lane that has panoramic 360 degree views of the High Sierra's and the San Joaquin Valley. These aren't just good views, they are absolutely spectacular and astonishing.
The property sits on a ridge line that overlooks the San Joaquin Valley. The home was sited at the highest point so that it also would have panoramic eastern views of the High Sierra's. Built in 2007, this custom 4br2ba home offers 2,284sqft in a very open floor plan. The huge great room features vaulted ceilings with a brick fireplace and bay windows that look east to the Sierras. The fully appointed kitchen has gas appliances, a built in microwave, a large pantry, double breakfast bars, and direct access to the finished 2 car garage. Off the kitchen is a very nice dedicated office area that is open to the great room. The dining area has a sliding glass door to the large covered patio that overlooks the valley. There are nicely sized bedrooms, all with walk in closets, plus a large master with a separate exit to the back yard. The utility room also has direct access to the back yard area. The home has been extremely well maintained and is in excellent, move-in ready condition.
This is truly a special property. After his original purchase, the owner then acquired the adjacent 5 acre parcel to add to his usable area and to insure that he wouldn't have a close neighbor that could impede his singular views. As ridge top property, there isn't a huge amount of usable area but with 2 parcels and 10 acres, there is plenty of room for just about anything you might want to do. AND, you have the ability to build a second residence if you desire. There is a nice workshop and the owner has planted a variety of fruit trees. You will enjoy almost total privacy. The only neighbor is across the road to the north. I'll never be able to properly describe the views. Winter views of the snow capped Sierra's are totally amazing, both at sunrise and at sunset. Sunsets? Yes, when the sun sets in the west, the snow covered peaks to the east turn a fiery red. The San Joaquin Valley views are even more spectacular. You can see numerous cities at night and the Coast Range, over 100 miles away, in the distance. The sunsets are truly unique and you won't believe the views on the 4th of July. Like fireworks? You'll have a dozen shows to watch. And, just wait until you get the chance to watch a thunderstorm as it moves across the valley. Then there are the winter views when the San Joaquin Valley is shrouded in fog. You'll feel like you are looking over the ocean with the Coast Range in the distance. Wow! The property elevation is just under 3,000 feet, so it is cooler in summer with nice breezes in the afternoon and you can expect occasional snow in the winter (not a lot, 4-6 inches three or four times is the norm).
What about the negatives? Can't say much bad about this one. Travel time to the valley will be a bit longer than the norm. The snow may be a bit of an inconvenience when it does occur but it will only be for a few hours and a 4WD eliminates even that. Much of the land is very sloped and usable only for grazing but that is what creates its unique views and privacy. However, there is plenty of space for most uses you might have in mind.
While the pictures can give you a good idea of the uniqueness of this property, you really have to see it to get the full effect. The price is absolutely set in concrete. If you are not qualified for $325,000 or are hopeful of negotiating a lower price, don't waste the seller's time. Showings are by appointment only.
