Three Rivers villa description

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 dependant on Sierra winter snow but becomes quite nice for swimming later in the summer when water temperatures rise into the mid-high 70's. 2014 is looking to be a 20% of normal flow season. Optimum for 4 people with 6 people maximum. Now taking reservations for the spring and summer of 2014. Wir sprechen auch Deutsch.

              Owner info

              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 Year round water flows through the property adjacent the house at up to 500 gallons per second during spring and early 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.
