Property description

Drive to the main level of this 2 story, 2800 square foot house with 4 bedrooms, 3.5 Baths. There is a game room, washer & dryer, wrap around redwood deck and a lower covered porch. Our home is fully equipped, including a propane BBQ, fireplace, pool table, foosball, big screen TV's, board games, playing cards, DVD’s and much more. (Sleeps 12)

Located in Oakhurst and less than ½ miles off Hwy 41, with the Fresno River in your backyard. Begin your mountain experience by crossing a single lane bridge to this home, located on over 10 acres. The home is situated, so that your main views and outdoor decking is overlooking the river. The large picture windows seem to bring the outdoors right into the home. Most rooms have ceiling fans along with swamp cooling and propane heating and space heaters. The main master bedroom has a king bed, ensuite jetted spa tub, double sinks, 32' LED/DVD tv and a sliding glass door leading to the redwood deck which surrounds the home and gives you lots of room for relaxing while listening to the movement of the river. There is a second master bedroom with a queen bed, ensuite bathroom with shower, 32' LED/DVD tv. The wood burning fireplace is well situated with a hectoliter for circulating the warm air into the home. Also located upstairs is a separate 1/2 bath, washer/dryer, living room with a 47' LED smart TV, wireless internet, sound bar and DVD and a variety of movies/books to choose from. There is leather seating and a large dining room table. The kitchen is fully equipped with an electric stove, dishwasher, refrigerator with ice maker and a retro microwave and overhead light. There is access to the lower level, from inside the upper level, through an enclosed staircase as well as from a separate entrance from the outside of the house. When you go downstairs, you will enter a large game room, equipped with a daybed with trundle, full size sofa bed, Pool table, leather chair seating, Foosball, retro table with 2 chairs, 55' LED smart TV, sound bar, DVD, VHS & iPod connection. The 3rd & 4th bedrooms are located next to the game room and one has a full and twin size bed, 19' TV/DVD, desk and a closet with a twin roll away bed and games and the other has a queen size bed with large closet. There is also a bathroom with tub/shower combo, double sinks and private toilet. A fully covered porch can be access through the sliding door of the game room.

There is plenty of parking for cars, boats and tow vehicles. We have towed a 27' travel trailer behind a crew cab, long bed pickup without any trouble crossing the single lane bridge heading towards the house. We did have much difficulty when leaving the house and heading back towards the bridge. There isn't enough room to make a turn wide enough to line up the back wheels of the trailer to the bridge. Would not recommend pulling anything over 20 foot.

The home is surrounded by a forest of wild flowers, Manzanita, Pines and other native trees including oak. As in all of the Sierra Mountains, wildlife abounds. We are visited regularly by meandering Mule Deer and a large variety of migratory birds. We also have periodic visits from raccoons, coyotes, opossum, gray tree squirrels, gray fox and much more, While we haven’t personally seen any skunks, lions and bears on our property they are definitely nearby. The howling of coyotes can often be heard in the morning and evening hours. On cloudless nights stargazing is always an awesome sight in the darkened mountains

We are one of the few homes in Oakhurst with our own water well. Conveniently location in Oakhurst and within minutes of Oakhurst's town amenities, including a movie theater, melodrama theater, Vons and Raleys grocery stores, CVS and Rite Aid drug stores, Jamba Juice, Starbucks, farmers markets, wine Tasting, community park, art galleries, museums, library, golf, antique and thrift stores, gift shops, sporting good stores, various fine-dining including the 5 star European-style dining (world famous Erna's Elderberry House Restaurant) & fast food restaurants, pizza parlors, donuts, gas station & much more.l

Oakhurst is located above the fog and below the snow, we usually get 0-1 inches of snow several times each winter, just perfect! The area truly has four very distinct seasons, each one offering something new and wonderful. But the best of all is we are 13 miles from the 'Gateway' between the Southern entrance to Yosemite National Park. Other nearby activities are;

Sleigh rides & ice skating at Tenaya Lodge and the Mariposa Grove of giant redwoods located 13 miles away at the southern entrance to Yosemite.

On your way to Yosemite, visit the historic Yosemite Mountain Sugar Pine Railway with its' old-fashioned narrow-gauge steam engines. Take a ride on 'The Logger', pan for gold, stay for lunch or dinner & enjoy their entertainment. Horseback riding stables are also close by (seasonal).

47 miles to Ahwahnee Hotel and Wawona Hotel Golf Course.

9 miles to the Pines Resort at Bass Lake. Bass Lake is a popular fishing and power sports destination with marinas renting everything needed to make your lake experience enjoyable. Bring your fishing pole or boat (or rent one at the local marina). You can rent a large pontoon boat, fill up a cooler with all our favorites, and grill on the on-board BBQ out on the lake. Spend a glorious spring or summer day on the Lake, picnicking, swimming, fishing & enjoying water sports--or venture out to any number of nearby lakes.

The start of the world famous 'Sierra Vista Scenic Byway' is 18 miles away.

18.4 miles to Nelder Grover/Giant Sequoias.

Chukchansi Gold Casino is only 10 minutes south of us in Coarsegold if you're feeling lucky or want to enjoy a concert.

Take the 60 mile drive up HWY 49 to the all-weather Scenic HWY 140 which winds along the beautiful Merced River (think summer white water rafting) & into the western Arch Rock entrance to Yosemite Recreation Area.

Take a day-trip up Highway 49 to explore dozens of old gold rush-era towns. Visit the charming & historic town of Mariposa 40 minutes northwest, where you can visit a working stamp mill with old mining equipment, historic museums, buildings, carriages & wagons.

We are also close to a endless other outdoor activities such as Miami Motorcycle Trails, Badger Ski Resort, Sledding at Goat Meadow, lots of hiking, horseback riding, whitewater rafting, gold panning, fishing, mountain biking, golfing, off-road vehicle trails/roads, swimming and historic sites etc.

Come up and enjoy the lakes and the majestic scenery of Sierra's! This area has much to offer in outdoor activities, with breathtaking vistas around every corner. You can stay as busy as you like or relax as much as you need, this area has it all!

Year Purchased: 2012

About: The Godfreys

Why Oakhurst:
We have been camping around the Shaver Lake & Dinkey Creek area for years and love the Sierras. Unfortunately those areas are not retirement friendly. We have looked for three years around the Oakhurst and Mariposa area, before buying this property. When we found this property, our dream had come true. We have our mountains, water, privacy and comfortable home, all within 1/2 mile from all the amenities of town.
