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 Sequoia, Kings Canyon

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.

Unwind. Destress.

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a tremendous time on your property... stunning views, great fishing for my little guy, so much fun on the rope swing in the pond, and let's not forget to mention the gorgeous horses who came to say hi each evening. It was peaceful and relaxing, and yet at the same time the kids had enough to occupy themselves.

The house itself is great too. All in all, a wonderful property. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and hope to be back soon!

Cozy and quiet ranch getaway!

  • 5 of 5

A group of our friends stayed here because we had a wedding down the street at Spingville Ranch and barn. We knew the house would be great, but the experience turned out to be amazing. Before the wedding we woke up early to hike around the property, down to the lake and orange trees. The oranges were fresh and juicy! The house itself was spacious and beautiful. The best part were the balcony/decks looking out to the ranch. We made coffee in the morning and would just sit out on the balcony enjoying the peace and quiet. Steve was extremely accommodating and helpful during the days leading up to our stay. If I'm ever in the Springville area, I would stay here again!

Thank you Steve!

Gorgeous getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Big, beautiful, well manicured home on the side of a mountain with orange orchards, ponds and amazing views from every angle! We enjoyed living in luxury in what felt like a national park! Plenty of cooking supplies and lots to keep entertained with a gameroom in the basement.

Picture perfect home with the best views

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Ranch Getaway the weekend of MLK with my family and friends. The home is exactly as described and better. We have a 15 month old baby, and it was great to let him roam around the plush carpet in the family room and master bedroom. All the rooms are neatly organized, with fresh clean linens. Even though we took our own toiletries, the bathrooms were nicely stocked with shampoo, conditioner, and body wash which I thought was great. The best part of this home, are the views from every window! It is so relaxing to just look out into all the orange groves, and property while cooking meals in the kitchen. The dining room accommodated our large party, and it was nice to eat dinner as a group.Our last day here we picked oranges from the trees, and they were delicious! Lastly, it was great to have our pets with us. They enjoyed running all over the property, and exploring the grounds. I hope to return to this beautiful and peaceful home in the summer. Thank you Steve for a wonderful experience and stay in your home!
