Yosemite National Park house description

Location, location, location! Winter, Spring, Summer or Fall this estate provides unique experiences. Sleeps 14 comfortably. This easily accessible elegant custom built home is in the perfect spot for travelers who are interested in visiting Bass Lake (10 minutes away), Southern entrance to Yosemite National Park (20 minutes away), or just plugging into the amenities offered in Oakhurst (10 minutes away) and the surrounding mountain area (golf, horseback riding, swimming, boating, hiking, going to the movie theater, and eating out casually or at a five star restaurant). The beauty of this well maintained estate is that it can be a destination all its own. The residence is private, yet not remote. With an extensive luscious green lawn suitable for badminton, whiffle ball, croquet, bocce ball, or lawn darts, no one will ever be bored. The home and surrounding yard are the perfect setting for family reunions, retreats, and other special events. A historic, rustic log cabin (built in 1931) serves as a game room and houses ping pong and darts. The koi pond with waterfall and its waterfall provides a soothing backdrop for morning coffee or an evening cocktail while watching the assorted wildlife gather on the lawn (this includes wild turkeys, deer, and perhaps even a fox or two!). At this elevation, even the warmest day cools down to provide a comfortable evening. Each bedroom and living space is equipped with an overhead fan and large windows that allow the cool mountain breeze to lull you to sleep.
With many windows and French doors, this home is light and airy and allows views of the giant Ponderosa Pines and oaks on this beautiful 3 ½ acre property. The 3300 sq foot home was built with entertainment in mind and includes an open floor plan with soaring ceilings, wood floors, a well- designed great room including a generous living area with lots of comfortable seating and a 47 inch HD flat screenTV, large dining area ( seats 8 to 10 at one table and 4 to 6 on the other- they can also be pushed together), large woodstove, large counter area with seating for 4, food pantry, designated bar area stocked with glassware, large gourmet kitchen (2 large ovens-1 convection- 1 standard, warming oven, 5 burner gas stove top, 2 sinks, large prep areas, dishwasher, trash compactor, microwave, appliance pantry – with blender, Kitchen Aid mixer, Cuisinart, coffee maker , coffee bean grinder, toaster oven, 4 slice toaster, 2 refrigerators- 1 in kitchen and 1 in garage, food pantry, Pottery Barn dishes and and utensils for 16-18 as well as All Clad pots and pans. Everything required for all of your baking and cooking needs is provided. Cable (Dishnet), wi-fi and cellular accessibility are all included.
The master suite is very spacious and provides a romantic setting with a king sized bed, a 42 inch flat screen HDTV, a DVD player, a gas stove, luxurious raised jetted spa/tub (for two) and separate shower, separate toilet area, and its own deck to enjoy a view of the yard area . A second bedroom upstairs also houses a king sized bed and has a 32 inch flat screen TV.
Gathering areas with plenty of room to enjoy family time, games, or movies can be found both upstairs and downstairs. The family area downstairs has a couch that folds out to a queen sized bed (for a 5th bedroom area), a 42 inch HDTV and DVD player, and a table and chairs perfect for all sorts of family game playing (and the games are provided as well! ). One downstairs bedroom has a queen sized bed with a 24 inch TV and the other bedroom is a great place for the kids as it has 2 sets of bunk beds and a double(full) fold out bed with a 42 inch mounted flat screen TV and DVD player.
This house has to be seen to be truly appreciated. It is a family residence and has hosted many special events. Isn’t it time for your family and friends to make special memories in this beautiful setting amidst the Pines?
