Kernville apartment description

This is a brand new duplex built and finished January 2008. All the modern conveniences in the middle of 'Gold Mining' territory. Each unit is fully furnished and decorated very tastefully. We have a fish cleaning station outside and a BBQ area for outdoor enjoyment. A private property on 2.5 acres, most of which is a mountain) giving the units extra privacy. We are across the street from the World Famous Kern River,(this is where the Olympic athletes train for kayaking),on Sierra Way. A few miles North is the Giant Sequoias and a few minutes up Evans Road is Shirley Meadows, famous for skiing, snowboarding, tubing and sledding.

A unique vacation location, quiet and peaceful with beautiful mountain views. You can hear the babble of the river. Walk across the street to 'Bubbles Beach' to the local swimming hole and enjoy the river and related wild-life. Great for bird-watching and June is butterfly season!

Next door is one of the finest Steak-houses, Cheyenn's Steakhouse and up Sierra Hwy is World Famous 'McNallys' Steakhouse. The General store/deli is three doors north, so you don't need to bring anything but your clothes.

Come up and enjoy Nature at it's finest.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2008

                  About the owner: Ed and I have enjoyed Kern Valley for over 20 years. We decided to build the duplex and give our friends and relatives a place to enjoy the beautiful nature that Riverkern provides. We built the property in 2008 and have had many great times with family and friends.

                  Why the Owner Chose Kernville:
                  This property is across the street from the Kern River. It is quiet and peacful and sits on 2.5 acres. Most of the acreage is a mountain adding to the nature and privacy.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
                  We are both artists, so the building of this duplex has given us an outlet for some of our artistic interests.
