Mariposa house description

Come hike up Half Dome or relax while staying at the Pine Canyon Retreat Home! It is conveniently located near Yosemite National Park along scenic Highway 140 and Historic Mariposa, approximately 9 miles east of downtown of Mariposa.

The Pine Canyon home is a beautiful custom home design with open beam construction and high ceilings. It sits at the 3300 foot elevation comfortably above the fog and below the snow line.

The Pine Canyon Retreat Home is just the place for families and friends looking for comfort, convenience and charm. The open floor plan is ideal for socializing and relaxing. Nestled in a hillside on 8 acres, the Pine Canyon Retreat Home offers privacy, quiet surroundings in the oaks with nature at your doorstep. Leave the crowds, traffic and noise behind. This house is fabulous and could easily be your ideal vacation home with all the modern amenities.

The Pine Canyon Retreat Home is conveniently located near Yosemite National Park and offers a variety of activities for all seasons. There is easy access to two nearby park entrances, Arch Rock Entrance Station along the Wild and Scenic Merced River Canyon, or the South Entrance Station along Highway 41 on the way to the majestic Giant Sequoias.

The Historic Gold Town of Mariposa with its quaint shops, restaurants, wine tasting from local Vineyards, History Museum and The California State Mining and Mineral Museum are all less than 15 minutes away.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2012

                  About the owner: Kathleen and Alex moved to Midpines seventeen years ago to enjoy the natural beauty of the area and spend as much time in Yosemite as possible. Kathleen is an Architectural Designer and specializes in Straw Bale Home design. She is also very busy raising twin boys. Alex is a trained Engineer and teaches mathematics at the local public High School.

                  Why the Owner Chose Mariposa:
                  This property is designed so nicely nestled in the oaks with nature. Deer often roaming, relaxing and resting in the meadow below the deck.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  Our secluded oak retreat is incredible for enjoying sunsets, star gazing, wild flowers and bird watching all from the comfort of the deck. This custom home was designed by a local designer with lots of special details. The open beam ceiling allows the living room to feel light and spacious.
