Owner info

Year Purchased: 1971

About the owner: Chris J Johnson is a long time art teacher/artist in Santa Barbara, California. The home in Riverkern has been in our family for over 40 years, and has been recently upgraded since Johnny Johnson, Chris' Dad, passed away 6+ years ago. 'Gentelman John' was Whiskey Flat Mayor in 1985, and was known as the 'Best Bartender In The Valley'!

Why the Owner Chose Kernville, CA, USA:
Location, location, location!! Riverkern is a quiet residential area that many professional locals (law enforcement, forest service, fire department) choose to live because of the quality of life in the area. It's the last residential area going upstream towards the high country, and only three miles from Kernville. Please note: This is NOT A PARTY ZONE, but a great location as a base for hiking, fishing, boating, and enjoying the great outdoors.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Clean, spacious, great patio for bbqing, close to the river, quiet residential neighborhood. Adjacent large lot for boat, trailers, etc with easy turnaround.
