Description:

Empress Mountain consists of 12 lots at the 6,000 foot elevation. They are adjacent to the Kings Canyon National Park on the east and the YMCA-Sequoia Lake property on the north. These are some of the only private parcels to be found in the Kings Canyon-Sequoia National Park area other than the postage stamp sized lots in Wilsonia.

This parcel is a 4.01 acre lot that overlooks Sequoia Lake. It's a rare opportunity for a cabin site at the 6,000 foot elevation within walking distance to Hitchcock Meadows, Ella Falls, and the Big Stump picnic area. A hike of about 2 miles will get you to the Grant Grove Village and Wilsonia. This is a forested area and the terrain is rugged. The lot is buildable and there is a spring on the property. This will be a truly private property with no neighbors within sight, now or ever. A cabin site here will have a scenic view through the trees overlooking Sequoia Lake. Just spectacular! And your privacy starts at the highway. Empress Mountain has owner controlled access via a gated entrance off of Hwy 180 about 1/2 mile east of Sequoia Lake. From there, it's a drive of just over 1/2 mile on a dirt road to the property. The privacy and serenity of the area is simply amazing. There are very few opportunities like this to have a getaway vacation spot in a spectacular mountain environment at an affordable price.

Any negatives? Property elevation is about 6,000 feet which gives you great cooler temperatures in the summer but it is not uncommon to have 6 feet of snow in the winter. Winter access will be limited to snowmobile, snowcat, or similar modes. It is a rugged, forested property, so developing a cabin site will be more challenging than developing on moderate terrain. Still, this is a unique property and the end result will be one of great satisfaction.

This isn't a property for everyone. You need to have a real desire to be away from the crowd and willing to do the work necessary to make it happen. A cabin here will feel like it is the only place in the world. What better remedy for getting rid of the impacts of a hectic urban lifestyle could there be?
