About the Property

Villa, 3+ bedrooms (See Description), 2 Baths,


Amazingly preserved and well maintained, this home was built in 1932 in the Spanish Colonial style (Santa Barbara style). This beautiful, secluded home features 4 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms.

With unique and ample features to which no other Yosemite area home can compare, this property features a Mexican tile lined swimming pool, basketball and volleyball court, private balcony, courtyards, outdoor kitchen and living areas, two ponds, Spanish style water fountain, spectacular lush gardens, outdoor fireplace, outdoor fire pit, and spacious patios. All of this tucked in the heart of Mariposa…within walking distance to shops and activities.


Much of the home features original beautiful mahogany floors; mahogany beamed ceilings grace the living room with original hand painted flowers. The living room showcases a wood-burning fireplace with the original 1932 copper screen. The light fixtures in the entry and leading up the staircase also depict hand forged art scenes from the past.

The dining room seats 8 comfortably and closes off completely for privacy with the original Mahogany French doors.

With kitchen renovation in 2009, the authenticity of the 1932 era was maintained while providing a very modern, custom kitchen. The kitchen features granite counter tops, stainless steel appliances, warming drawer, farm sink, prep sink, pot filler, gas Wolf stove top, and Sub-Zero refrigerator.


Two spacious bedrooms are located down stairs and share a bathroom while two identical bedrooms are upstairs and also share a bathroom. The two upstairs bedrooms have doors opening onto a patio that overlooks the pool area and is equipped with rocking chairs to enjoy your morning coffee. The bedrooms are each beautifully and uniquely decorated.

The bathrooms have the original ceramic tile that was popular in 1932; one with yellow and black and the other with art deco styled pink, green and black. Very fun! Both are full baths with the upstairs having a large separate soaking tub.


Surrounded by a Giant Sequoia, Palm, Deadora, Cedar, Pine, Olive, Plum, and Almond trees makes for a very private setting. The magnificent vegetation attracts numerous birds. During the “dog days of summer” you can escape the heat by cooling of in the private pool, sitting under the covered patio, or enjoying the natural shade provided by the canopy.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: The Kari Family has lived and worked in Yosemite National Park for over 20 years. Dave is the supervisor in charge of Yosemite's Trails Program and Kirstie is the owner of a local grocery store. Their children, Jack and Leo, have been raised hiking, camping, and skiing in Yosemite. Summers find the family swimming and fishing on the Merced River and every free day of winter finds them at Yosemite's Badger Pass.

Why the Owner Chose Mariposa, CA, USA:
House is perfect for mixed groups. Staying at the house with the sports court, pool, gardens and luxurious furnishing is a vacation on its own. Only 30 miles from the 140 gate to Yosemite - it is close enough to visit everyday. At the same time, its in town location, just steps from the restaurants and shops in the gold country of Mariposa, it is an easy place for families.
