SALE PENDING.... !! ~ A really rare find up here in Squaw Valley - a beautiful, pastoral community nestled into the Sierra foothills - only 45 minutes from Fresno/Yosemite International Airport or just 3+ driving hours from either the Bay Area or Southern California. Entering the gated private drive, you come upon a truly impressive custom ranch estate nestled in the center of 50 park-like acres.

Among its many special outdoor features are:
** a large four-horse barn;

The house itself is surrounded on 3 sides by an elevated 2,100 sq. ft. wraparound redwood-planked veranda. Inside the home is over 3,700 sq. ft. of gracious living, consisting of 10 rooms with 3 bedrooms and 3.5 baths. All the walking and dining areas are hardwood floor while the bedrooms and living areas are all carpeted. In the front of the house, you find:

** The master suite - a luxurious 500 sq.ft. with a corner fireplace, French doors going out to the pool and stone patio area; and a pocket-door revealing a private office and library, which exits to the far end of the veranda. The master bath is stunning... a huge clear glass shower, elegant step-up spa tub, double sinks with dressing table, and large linen closet. The walk-in wardrobe closet is very spacious with loads of storage and shelves.
Attached to the side of the house is a 1,200 sq. ft. fully-finished, 3-car garage with oversized automatic doors, a large work area, and a service room for the 75-gal. hot water heater and built-in vacuum system. Above the garage there is room for constructing a good-sized caretaker quarters or mother-in-law suite. As a bonus, there's room for growth in the 3,000 sq. ft. as-yet-unfinished attic with cathedral-ceilings.
At about 2,300 feet in elevation, the property experiences all four seasons. Summers are cooler than are found in the valley. In winter, you are above the dreariness of the valley fog yet below the snow line. Rainfall averages about 30 inches and you will experience an occasional snow... enough to enjoy but not so much as to be a burden. Wildlife abounds with deer, quail, wild turkey, boar, bobcats, fox, raccoons, raptors, and more. The 4-stall barn has a traditional design and is complete with office and tack room areas.
This truly is an exceptional property, a perfect place to escape and decompress. The pictures just don't do justice to what you will find. Obviously, this isn't a property for everyone, but if you are looking for a "signature property", here is a country jewel to soothe the soul and make you proud.
Showings are strictly by appointment only. Proof of financial capacity will be required prior to any showing. Because this is a very rural environment, we recommend long pants and appropriate footwear, i.e. boots. Be prepared to be impressed.
