SOLD...This is the rarest of the rare in the Sequoia National Forest. The Sequoia Lake Conference of the YMCA is offering 4 private parcels adjacent to their Sequoia Lake property. These properties range in size from 18 acres to 40 acres and represent some of the finest privately held properties in the forest. This an opportunity to own a legacy property, worthy of handing down to your future generations.
The property is being offered as a single sale only with terms of all cash. There is no seller financing. It consists of 2 rough 20 acre parcels and 2 rough 40 acre parcels. The properties are all contiguous to each other. Access is from Highway 180 and Forest Route 13S97 which traverses through 3 of the parcels. Access to the 4th parcel is via a private easement road from Forest Route 13S97 to the property. These are true forested properties adjacent to the Sequoia National Forest. Elevations range from 5,300 feet to 5,700 feet and tree coverage is primarily conifers with some manzanitas and black oaks. Each of the parcels have multiple potential building sites for a cabin and one of the parcels had a cabin which burned down in the 1990's. Additionally, one of the parcels has Mill Flat Creek, which exits Sequoia Lake, running through one corner. Orientation of the property is generally north facing with an average elevation drop from south to north of 350 feet over a distance of 4,000 feet, which, for this mountainous region, is very gradual. Overall, the terrain mix varies with a combination of broad flats, benches, hillside slopes, and gentle open ridge line areas. The views are primarily to the north and east and fairly localized to the regional mountain area. The properties are basically undeveloped. There is power approximately 400 feet east of the property that can be potentially brought to the property. The YMCA is willing to cooperate in providing the requisite easements to PG&E at the future request of the new owner.
How about any negatives? The property is above the normal winter snowline in most years. Wintertime access can become limited and the Forest Service does not plow the main access road beyond the Sequoia Lake turnoff area. While electric service is feasible, off grid options may prove to be more financially attractive.
This truly is a rare opportunity. There are an extremely limited number of private properties that exist in this primitive forested area and even fewer are those with the accessibility of these four parcels. Finally, the prospect of obtaining four contiguous properties of significant size is virtually unheard of. This is the opportunity to cement a future family heritage in one of the most scenic areas of our country. While this is certainly not an inexpensive offering, the benefits of owning such a unique tract of accessible wilderness property should be obvious. Prospective buyers should be prepared to provide proof of capacity to purchase prior to any showing.
