Property description

The renovated Ranch Style Farm House was originally built in the early 1900's by a Rancher and famous Rodeo rider (Jess Akers). Many of the original Corrals and outbuildings are still on the premises. The land is abundant with Oak, Pecan, and Mesquite trees.

The great big Oak Tree that sits in the front yard is a beautiful sight when sitting outside on the front porch. When inside, the central heating and air conditioning keeps it very comfortable. The wood burning fireplace is downstairs in the Living room for all to enjoy.

CALAVERAS LAKE is only a mile away, but there is a large Pond 200 yards from the house. The pond is about 75 yards long, 50 yards wide, and has a gentle slope to a depth of about 8 ft. With the fresh clean well water supplying it, the fishing is great; Bring your own Fishing gear, and a bait place is only a half-mile away. You are welcome to swim in the pond, many people do. The pond was built and stocked with Channel Cats, Bluegill Perch, and Large-mouth Bass in July 2002. Tables are set under trees so makes for a great picnic area. The Large Pavilion near the house has electricity, water, a charcoal bar-b-q pit and there are two bathrooms outside that can be used for small events such as reunions or birthday parties. One of the restrooms is handicap accessible.

HOUSE LIVING ARRANGEMENTS: Upstairs has 3 bedrooms and two and a half baths. The upstairs master bedroom has a King-size bed and full bath, middle room has two Full beds and a full hall bath, third bedroom has 2 Queen size beds and a half bath. The downstairs Bedroom (4th bedroom) has a queen size bed, its own full bath and a washer and dryer. The Downstairs living room is large enough to set up a couple air mattresses, has its own full bathroom with shower and a door to shut for privacy.

For an additional fee of $100 per night, you may rent a Cabin that sits 100 yards from the main house, sleeps 4 people ( 2 per bed). It is a spacious one bedroom with two Queen beds, has a regular sofa in the Living room. This sofa can be used as a bed (though not a sofa/bed), plus there is room for one air mattress /cot. It has one full bath. If additional people (to exceed 4) stay in the cabin, the fee is $10 per night, per person. The cabin is only available for rent to those staying in the main house.
