Mariposa house description

Enjoy this freshly-refurbished 3-bedroom ranch house, just 37 gorgeous miles from Yosemite National Park! Access via a newly-paved two-lane road means you won’t have any trouble finding this place.

This fully furnished house features two separate living areas: one where you can play pool or ping-pong, or watch TV by the cozy wood-burning stove, the other one can be closed off to enjoy quiet conversation by the fireplace. Central heating keeps the place warm if you prefer not to build fires.

The Master Bedroom has an attached bathroom, queen bed, satellite TV; Second Bedroom has a queen bed, and the Kid’s Room has bunk beds. All bedrooms have closets, mirrors, night stands & lamps; Master and Kid’s Rooms have chests of drawers; Second Bedroom has a dressing table.

Relax outdoors at the picnic table under a huge shade tree, or at the small picnic table on the covered patio, or set up some chairs on the covered porch for a casual afternoon.

Every room in the house has a great view; the Family, Living, Master and Second Bedrooms look out over a meadow to the forest beyond. The Kitchen, Dining, and Kid’s Room look into the forest where you’ll often see deer and wild turkeys ambling by.

This house is far enough away from the road for complete privacy, yet not isolation. At night if you look the right direction you may see the porch light of the one neighboring house that is visible.

Every season here is spectacular. New-fallen snow sparkling on tree branches; wildflowers and apple blossoms greeting you in spring; afternoon breezes and long, warm summer evenings followed by cool nights filled with more stars than you’ve ever seen; and finally the lingering colors of autumn to finish out the year.

                  Year Purchased: 1996

                  About: The owner was raised in or around Yosemite and claims it as home. Currently business commitments keep him on the road a good part of the year, but he returns as often as possible.

                  Why Mariposa:
                  My children grew up here and now have fine lives of their own--it's time to share this special place with the rest of the world!

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  Yosemite is a great place, and everyone should see it--but you could have a very relaxing vacation without leaving this property! The starry nights are amazing (and don't forget meteor showers, especially around August 12th!) and the peaceful setting and breezes whispering in the trees will regenerate you.
