A custom redwood home inside and out on two acres of land just 4 miles from Sequoia National Park. The property is fully developed and maintained as a garden with it's own private riverside beach. Many trees provide a shaded park like setting. A year-round regulated water flow provides a steady flow of water right next to the house. The Middle Fork of the Kaweah River, visible from the house, flows through the property just 100 yards from the house. The river normally runs quite swift during the spring runoff from April through June dependent on Sierra winter snow but becomes quite nice for swimming later in the summer when water temperatures rise into the mid-high 70's. Optimum for 4 people with 6 people maximum. Wir sprechen auch Deutsch. We are closed during 2014-2015 winter season. Please inquire about 2015 bookings commencing in April. New lower rate schedule for 2015 makes a 2 person vacation stay especially economical.

Four miles from the southern entrance to Sequoia National Park. World's largest tree is just a one hour drive. This is an incredible Sierra Nevada foothills location with rugged mountains rising in all directions.
Year Purchased: 1950
About the owner: I am the grandson of the original property owner. My grandmother purchased the property and the garden was developed many years before the house was added. The garden is much the same as it was in the 50's except those little trees are now quite large. I am a kayaker on the Kaweah River since 1985 and author of The Kaweah River Page on the internet.
Why the Owner Chose Three Rivers: This property has been in our family since 1950. The home was built in 1965 and is custom throughout. The architect was Robert F. Street of Aberdeen, WA. The property and home are a family treasure. The love of the fabulous Kaweah River can not be understated.
The Unique Benefits at this Villa: Home constructed of clear redwood inside and out located on a quiet private drive. A unique year round water flow is immediately adjacent the house with significant flow during spring and summer. Numerous decks on all sides. The property has a well maintained garden with walking paths throughout. The sound of tumbling water is audible from inside the house. Quantities of sand in the garden lead to a large sandy beach area on the bank of the river. The property is considered by many as the premier riverfront property in all of the Three Rivers community.
