Mariposa house description

This house was designed by an artist to maximize the use of natural light with its large windows and high ceilings.
The newly renovated two bedroom house is well equipped for your enjoyment. The beautiful views of the surrounding oak woodland and mountain ridges can be enjoyed from every room. Throughout the house you will find maple hardwood floors and updated appliances.
The kitchen is stocked with plenty of the amenities of home and a granite bar that seats four.
The living room has a modern chair that is great for reading and folds into a single bed if needed. The living room is equipped with a 50 inch high definition smart television that allows you to stream Netflix, listen to Pandora or watch one of the provided movies. There are also a number of board games for the family to play. The large deck has patio furniture and a gas grill. You may be able to observe deer, rabbits, and birds from the deck and if you are lucky you may hear coyotes in the evening. The house is eight miles south of the town of Mariposa off of Highway 49 and 35 miles from two year round entrances into Yosemite National Park (highway 140 and highway 41).

              Car: Recommended

              Our unique vacation rental is located among the rolling oak foothills of the Sierra Nevada Mountains. Secluded away from light pollution of cities the property allows for spectacular star gazing, along with colorful sunrises and sunsets.

              With its 800 miles of trails to hike and activities such as horseback riding, rafting, rock climbing, waterfall and wildlife viewing Yosemite National Park has something for the whole family.

              We are also conveniently located eight miles from the historic town of Mariposa which has a number of quaint antique and gift shops along with fine and casual dining. A great place to unwind after a long hike in Yosemite.

               

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2013

              About the owner: We met in Yosemite National Park eleven years ago. Erica came out to Yosemite from Kentucky to work for the National Park Service Bighorn Sheep program. Josh moved to the Yosemite area in 1991 to work as a rock climbing guide, ski instructor and photographer. We are raising our two children in the Merced River Canyon below Yosemite.

              Why the Owner Chose Mariposa:
              We love the rolling foothills of Mariposa and wanted to find a place to one day move our family to. We looked at many properties but this one spoke to us. From the moment we pulled up we felt a sense ease and look forward to one day living here. We also like that it is close to the amenities that the quaint town of Mariposa, and Oakhurst have to offer.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              The sense of peace and calm that washes over you when you are at this location is what drew us to this property. We could picture retiring here just fine.
