"CUSTOM PASSIVE SOLAR MOUNTAIN VIEW HOME NEAR YOSEMITE. Seclusion & serenity await you in this 3 br/3 ba view home on 6+ acres w/2 streams, bordering Sierra National Forest. Yes, there's lovely distant views of Whiskey Ridge & Cascadel Point, but it's the views of massive black oaks, gorgeous twisty red manzanita & towering pines that are truly enchanting. Low energy bills are also enchanting - in winter, south-facing walls of windows allow sun to heat the home. In summer, the home has been sited to reduce solar gain, so that ample light but no direct sun enters the home. With cathedral & vaulted ceilings, a beautiful, efficient fireplace insert, a skylight & RO system in kitchen, catwalk & loft/office, a large master suite on the ground floor w/sun room, coffered ceilings, a lovely bathroom w/soaking tub, separate shower, 2 sinks & walk-in closet, multiple decks, a balcony, hottub, whole house fan, newer HVAC, 2 car garage, storage room, woodshed & detached storage shed, long paved driveway, trails, and a deepwater well that can be switched to gravity feed if needed. Streams on each side of the house create stereophonic sound of running water in winter & spring, and can be reached by trails down the hillside. Home is part of the Cascadel community, which includes a clubhouse, 40 acres of common land, creeks and a pond nearby for your use. The adjacent 1/3 acre lot may be purchased separately for added privacy or future investment (not in MLS)."
