SOLD....Looking for a place to escape the hectic pace of city living and the daily grind of your 9 to 5? This cozy little cabin, located only 6 miles from the park entrance of Kings Canyon & Sequoia National Parks, just might offer that get-away place you have been looking for. Intrigued? Read on...
The cabin is part of a small enclave of cabins in historic Neff Camp, with roots that date back to the turn of the last century. Located adjacent to the Sequoia National Forest on Hwy 245, Neff Camp offers a peaceful and serene forest setting amongst towering pines and cedars. Here's your chance to step back in time; a place to get away from the valley heat or to have a White Christmas.
Built in 1935, the cabin is in very livable condition. The 2 story design offers 3 bedrooms and 1 bath plus a nice kitchen and living room. The 2 smaller bedrooms are downstairs with the larger master bedroom upstairs. The master has a separate entrance and sitting deck. There is a also a large deck off the kitchen and off the living room. The kitchen features a beautiful old wood cook stove that also heats the cabin. Cooling is provided by Mother nature. The cabin will come mostly furnished. The cabin has electrical service and a septic system. Water is provided by a new community well and storage system owned by the cabin owners. There is a cabin owner's association that maintains the well. Annual dues are about $200 per year. You can even hook up Dish Network if you want. There is a small storage building for your toys and tools, a steel firewood box, and even a lighted backup bathroom (we call it an outhouse).
You can take walks along the paths in the forest or take day trips to places such as Wilsonia, the giant redwoods of Grant Grove, Cedar Grove in the bottom of Kings Canyon (the deepest in the world), Boyden's Cave, Crystal Cave, and a host of other places of wilderness majesty. This is the quiet national park area of California. You won't find the crowds of Yosemite here.
Any negatives? Well, it is an old cabin, so there's always lots of maintenance and you will need to learn to cook on a wood cook stove (or bring a microwave & BBQ). At 4,500 feet, the snow can get a little deep at times, so carry chains in the winter. Finally, all of the peace and serenity of the forest may entice you to never go back to the city.
This is truly a great opportunity to have your own private forest retreat. Very affordably priced and the owner might carry some paper for a qualified buyer with an acceptable down payment. Showings are by appointment only.
