Pinehurst house description

This house is located at a 4000 foot elevation in the mountains near Kings Canyon National Park and borders the Giant Sequoia National Monument. This is a ridgetop location on 10 acres with hiking, fishing, boating, and horseback riding close by. The uniqueness lies in the mountain views, many black oak and manzanita trees, and dark night skies. If you seek privacy and comfort in the midst of an oak woodland landscape, this is the place for you.
HOT TUB is currently out of order, but will be repaired when drought conditions subside.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 1997

                      About the owner: About us... Cindy and Dan Duriscoe, the owners of the property, want your stay to be as enjoyable as possible. We are former employees of Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks and we want to share our knowledge with you. We purchased the property in 1997 and lived here almost 10 years. We know the land, and we did most of the work on the property ourselves. We are constantly making improvements as time allows, and we welcome suggestions. Do not hesitate to inquire about the parks, the monument, and other attractions in the area. We know that this piece of land offers something special at all seasons (Dan's favorite is actually winter). We have watched the land and sky from here, and the peacefulness of the location is unmatched. Both of us enjoy hiking, backpacking, X-country skiing in the Sierra. Cindy loves horseback riding and snowshoeing on nearby trails.

                      Why the Owner Chose Pinehurst:
                      This part of California is known for its mild climate, calm winds and stable air most of the time (which makes for wonderful observations of the night sky through a telescope), fall colors of the black oaks (some seasons are more intense than others), and the elevational gradient that allows quick access to a variety of life zones. We think this location is ideally located for access to the high country and foothills, and gives a taste of both. The peace and quiet, walking among our own manzanita woodlands cannot be experienced elsewhere.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      Taking walks on the property and neighboring monument lands. Watching the sunset while enjoying a glass of wine. Observing the night sky or a sunrise from the hot tub. Mountain biking or horseback riding on nearby trails. The community of people is very friendly and helpful when work needs to be done. Wintertime can be very peaceful and majestic walking roads and trails, making wildlife observations, just plain having fun in the snow!
