Property description

House Description
Welcome! Adams House Mariposa is a stunning, friendly gracious, and quiet 4 bedroom historic custom home in downtown Mariposa. Mariposa is a charming gold rush town near Yosemite. The custom Craftsman house was built in the 1930s, is just one block from restaurants. The stairs and front porch, with its own bench for watching the world go by, are painted in lovely Craftsman colors. Step into the simple elegant high ceiling cathedral living room with Stickley craftsman furniture, numerous books for readers, and a new 49 inch LG Ultra High Resolution 4K TV— and feel the charm. Original artwork and designer furniture throughout. In this home you can relax and read and get to really know and enjoy your family and friends. In the back yard are two picnic tables with four chairs each, and a BBQ.
HOUSE HISTORY:
Built by the Judge Andrew Robert Schottky. Judge Lauritzen was Superior Court Judge from 1967-19887 and came to Mariposa as the District Attorney in the late 1950s. When he retired sold only once again to the next Mariposa County Judge Lauritzen with seven children, Adams House Mariposa has its own history, too. Jeanne and Michael Adams have continually renovated and updated the house since they purchased it as the third owners in 2007. All the carpeting has been removed and the beautiful oak hardwood floors are accented with area rugs. The window coverings and drapes have been replaced. The four bedrooms can accommodate one or up to six or eight people. The house can be divided into two independent units, the main house and the garden apartment. However, we prefer to rent it as one. Sleeping accommodations are: one king bed, one queen, and two trundle beds each can be used one or two singles or made into one king. The sunny breakfast nook looks out into trees and a pleasant view of the surrounding foothills, as do most of the windows. Two bathrooms, a kitchen, and utility room are useful. Mature blue oaks grace the property, because there was an earlier two story house on the property since the mid 19th century. There is off street parking in the rear of the property.
ADAMS FAMILY YOSEMITE/ MARIPOSA HISTORY:
The Adams family Yosemite / Mariposa connection goes back to 1901 when Harry Cassie Best (landscape painter) and Sarah Anne Rippey took out their wedding license in Mariposa and were married near the base of Bridal Veil Fall in Yosemite, sharing champagne with passengers from a stage coach journeying to Yosemite. They returned in 1902 and established Best’s Studio, now known as The Ansel Adams Gallery. The Best’s only daughter Virginia and Ansel Adams took out their wedding license in Mariposa and were married in the upper gallery of Best’s Studio in Yosemite in 1928. Their son Michael and Jeanne Falk took out their wedding license in Mariposa and were married in the Yosemite chapel in 1962. Their son Matthew and MingZhu Hu followed the tradition and got their wedding license in Mariposa and were married in the Yosemite chapel in 2007 The family has continuously owned and operated The Ansel Adams Gallery in Yosemite since 1902 — first Harry Best, then Virginia and Ansel Adams, then Jeanne Adams, and now Matthew Adams. The Adams family are great readers, have thousands of books and somehow keep acquiring more. So, if you are so inclined, you can dip into classics from the 19th and 20th centuries, with 1851 the earliest publication date. Virginia would tell Jeanne that she hoped that someday many of the family books would be in in Mariposa in a white house with a picket fence. The garden does not have a picket fence, but books are in a white house in Mariposa, for your enjoyment as well.
