Nights are quiet & dark here, except for a full moon when it shines. Or when the resident owl goes hooting. If you want to escape while having the option to engage in adventure, this is for you.

              Year Purchased: 1985

              About: This is my primary residence, We purchased this sweet, undeveloped 10-acre slice of the Sierra foothills in 1979. We lived on the property in a single-wide mobile with our two sons for 7 years, and the longer we lived in the mobile, the bigger the house grew. In 2006 we increased 800 square feet (bringing us to 4600 square feet) to add on a fully handicapped-accessible master wing on the lower floor. Widowed in 2008, I've been reluctant to leave - my sons live in the area. I love it here. And, I want to share it. One of my sons will host me when you are here.

              Why Ahwahnee:
              We moved to this area because we wanted to grow our business where we wanted to retire - we wanted a life-long affair with our environs. We chose this particular piece of property for the night sky. We'd just come from 2 years of living in the high New Mexico desert on the Navajo Reservation - my husband was a dentist - and we'd never seen sky like that. We wanted that, even in the midst of the pine-studded foothills. And we found it. Getaway Lane is a destination - remember to look up!
