Overview

About the property

4 bedrooms, 2 1/2 baths with hiking hills and small lakes (220 acres)

Newly renovated ranch home located in the rolling hills of Springville California. This four bedroom 2 1/2 bath home has spectacular views of the Sierra mountains, small lakes to swim and fish in, citrus groves and hills with hiking trails and horses. You are not just renting a beautiful home but over 200 acres of ranch property to enjoy and explore. Enjoy the views from every room and the large wooden deck which looks over the tops of the orange trees. On cool winter nights warm yourself by the large rock fireplace. On hot summer days cool down by swimming in the lake and the house has ample air conditioning. Visit the town of Springville (just one mile away) which is a quaint little country town nestled in a small valley at the base of mountain peaks that reach to over 10,000 feet. Drive to the giant sequoia trees at Balch Park, just one hour away. During most of the year you can pick fresh fruit from the citrus trees, oranges, grapefruit and lemons. Hiking the hills next to the house and you can feed carrots to the horses that rome it. Enjoy the fresh air, serenity, quiet and beauty. Take a break from TVs but it does have high speed wi-fi. Farm house has a large sunken living room with large windows with mountain views and a connected dining room, large kitchen with new appliances and attached family area with another table for playing cards or eating meals, all with spectacular mountain views. In addition, the garage was transformed to a game room in 2015 with a quality pool table, darts and air hockey. It's a great place to play.

About Steve

The ranch has been in the family since 1966, focussing on citrus. We grow some of the best oranges and grapefruit found anywhere. The ranch house was built in 1985 and recently renovated. Now we want to share this special place with others.

Steve purchased this farmhouse in 1966

Why Steve chose Springville

Dad picked the most beautiful ranch with three small lakes for fishing and swimming, large hills for hiking, citrus groves and spectacular mountain views. This has now been passed down to us.

What makes this farmhouse unique

Go on a day hike through the groves, hike the hills and swim across the lake while never leaving your property.

Beautiful

  • 5 of 5

The house is secluded, big, well maintained and equipped with everything your family might need. The lake was a great opportunity to cool down (it was very hot), the horses, the bunnies, the cows were spectacular to watch every day. We enjoyed our stay and would definitely go back.

Amazing...simple amazing

  • 5 of 5

This is a great reset from our a average living. The ponds was a hit and the canoes were icing on the cake. Love that we have so much privacy and the house was fully stocked. Wish we took advantage of the hiking and the horses was extremely friendly. Thanks for hosting!!

Very beautiful location, but WiFi did not work and no cell coverage for Verizon.

  • 3 of 5

If you are looking for a place to get away and unplug with a nice view and plenty of seclusion, then this is your place. Note, the address on vrbo was not correct and the first of our party to arrive met the neighbors. No WiFi or Verizon cell coverage and no tv.

Great Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Our large family spent end of 2017 and welcomed in 2018 at the Ranch. It was a great getaway allowing us to spend some quality time together. We explored the hills and ponds surrounding the house and made a trip to Balch Park for some exploring. The wild horses on the property were super friendly and intrigued by our two Great Danes. House worked out perfect and the setting was fantastic.
