About the owner: My family built this house in 1983 and I grew up in Sacramento, CA. My family came to the Carson Valley over 150 years ago and my mother was actually born in Gardnerville, NV (nearby). So this area has always been a home to me all of my life. I still remember when highway 395 in Minden/Gardnerville was a dirt road and only had one grocery store and 1 stop light. Great Memories!
Why the Owner Chose Markleeville: Since my family (Mom/Dad, grandmother, grandfather, Aunts/Uncles and cousins) all lived in the Carson Valley I relocated to this area in 1983. We love the spectacular views and accessibility to all the outdoor activities.
The Unique Benefits at this House: This home has views from every window! Whether it be the Sierra Mountains or the Beautiful Valleys! There is a fire road behind the house that we hike up to the top of the mountain. A bit of a challenge going up but the valley views from up there are amazing and a block out the back door! Breathtaking!
