Mariposa house description

Built in 1998 this modern 1600 sq. ft. ranch style home has 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. Our home has a beautiful large kitchen completely stocked for cooking needs. The living room and dining area are large and open with lovely and comfortable furnishings. There is a large laundry room available for our guests. You step out the front door and are surrounded by trees over one hundred years old, huge granite rocks and a seasonal creek right in front of the house. Early risers can enjoy that first cup of morning coffee with a leisurely walk or sitting under the trees enjoying the quiet and fresh air. Yosemite is approx. a one hour drive along the Merced River which meanders through canyons into the park. For advanced hikers our home is two miles from one of the most beautiful hikes in Mariposa. Search: Hite Cove trail for details. Historical downtown Mariposa is 20 minutes away with gold mining and rock museums, shopping, restaurants and antique stores. You can pick up the YARTS bus into the park in several locations in town. Bus fare includes admission into the park. Yosemite zip line tours are just outside of the town of Mariposa. Chuckchansi Casino is 45 minutes away with live shows and several restaurants. Bass Lake is 45 minutes away with boating, jet skiing, fishing and swimming. Zephyr white water river rafting is 20 minutes away

Keywords: See our reviews by past guests who have loved our home away from home. A comment we constantly get from guests is how cool, lush and heavily wooded our area is compared to the lower elevations in Mariposa. One of our guests little girl described our property as being like 'Narnia'. Surrounded by oaks, pines and a seasonal creek. There are frequently deer and wild turkeys strolling around the property. Our home is also available for exchange in Europe and the U.S.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2003

              About the owner: We have loved our home in the mountains since 2003 with many family and friend gatherings. Living in a large city, it is nice to escape to an area where people do not even lock their doors.

              Why the Owner Chose Mariposa:
              Our home is located at a 4,000 ft. elevation rich in forest life, cool summers and beauty unlike the lower elevations in Mariposa. We bought in this area because of the extreme beauty of the surroundings and accessibility to hiking and bike trails. We have filled our home with art and decor from our wonderful travels.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              Located in a serene quiet neighborhood, beautiful wooded property and excellent roads!
