This single story home on two acres with a shop next to Cascadel Woods in North Fork is a great buy. The property has been loved by the same family since it was built in 1984. It’s hard to get all of these great features combined on a single property that is still affordable to buy. The location of this home is nice and secluded as you will never have any neighbors on two sides due to the national forest service land bordering the property.
Not only is this 3 bedroom and 2 bathroom ranch style home situated next to the forrest service land, but it also comes with a large 3 roll-up door shop which is 30’X40′ in size. Bring your hobbies or bring your small business and store it in the shop. This home would be ideal for a mechanic or a car enthusiast as the shop has a 6 ton crane to be used as a cherry picker for engines of all sizes. The shop even comes equipped with a wood burning stove to keep you warm and toasty during the colder winter months.
Speaking of colder, the elevation of this property sits at around the 3,000 ft mark. This is an ideal elevation as it is high enough that the sweltering heat of the central valley is cooled off a bit by the time it reaches this elevation. It is also low enough so that you don’t experience a bunch of snowed in days where you have to dig yourself out of your driveway to commute. Get away from it all in this secluded area and enjoy what this property has to offer such as the mini orchard in the backyard. There you’ll find two of the following variety of trees: peach, plum, apple, citrus, nectarine & Almond. It also comes with a single persimmon tree. The 2 acre lot is fenced and cross fenced to hold animals or livestock. So bring your horse, cow or four legged critter of your choice and raise them where you live. There is a hog pen if you want to keep some pigs on the property too.
If storage is an issue where you live, this property comes equipped with two 8’X20′ metal storage containers or sea trains. So if you can’t fit everything in the 30’X40′ shop, there is backup storage in the sea trains. Another great thing about living in the mountains is that you get to drink your own water right from under you. When the most recent well was put in on this property back in the year 2,000, it was producing 60 GPM. The seller says he was told that there was an artesian well that ran through the property but he chose to go the traditional route with a well and a well pump. There is a 1,500 gallon cement water storage container that sits above the home that is then gravity fed to the house.
Let’s not forget about the dwelling on this beautiful piece of property. The home is just shy of 1,500 square feet. All of the flooring has been updated either within the past 7 years for the tile or as recent as last year with the carpets. Both of the bathroom vanities have been replaced with granite counter tops. There is a 40 year composition roof that was installed 7 years ago. If you need a craft room or a guest room, there is a detached room that was made from local trees for your guests or your crafts. This room is approximately 12’X12′. Additionally, there is a 16’X18′ barn with a wooden floor to hold all of your animal feed or yard tools, etc. There are two different wood burning stoves. One of them is in the family room inside the home and the other is inside the shop, as stated above.
From the driveway entrance it would be very easy to take your OHV and go roam the trails that lead up to Whiskey Falls, Whiskey Creek and the marked and unmarked campgrounds therein. Only about six miles away is Central Camp Road that leads to Central Camp as well as Shuteye Peak for some amazing 360 degree views. Six to seven miles away is the back end of Bass Lake where you can enjoy fishing year round and boating during the warmer months. One of the entrances to Yosemite National Park is only 30 miles away. This property is ideally located for those who enjoy the great outdoors. This home is currently offered for sale for $329,000.
