Where Design Meets Nature - just outside the South Gate of Yosemite
O'Neals, Madera County, California
In the California foothills, in the small town of O'Neals just outside the South Gate of Yosemite, sits a gorgeous custom home, unique in its structure and compatibility to the mountainside on which it sits. This 3 bedroom, 2 bath home, complete with a private office and loft bonus room, has enough character to suit even the pickiest of architecture buffs as it was designed and site planned by a career architect as his personal family home for the last 35 years. Lofty ceilings, intriguing niches, and distinctive features, both inside and out fit seamlessly into the natural flow of the 20 acres of foothill terrain.
Fenced and cross-fenced, horses and cattle are welcome, giving the gentleman rancher a full complement of uses. With precision and thoughtful planning, a complete horse set-up includes a barn, hay storage, stalls with runs, a hot-walker, a bath rack with hot and cold water, and divided pastures. This home provides an amazing back-to-nature tableau suited for those looking for sweeping views of the majestic Sierras, snowcapped in winter, green and gold in the summer. Watch the local wildlife from your living-room window or the back deck overlooking your pool and riding arena. You’ll see quail, road-runner, bobcats, deer, wild turkeys, and more which live among the ancient oaks, rock ridges, and gentle rolling acreage. A comfortable family room, and a spacious living room with a majestic fireplace keeping the place nice and cozy in winter.
This home is 20 minutes from one of the most beautiful lakes in the state of California, Bass Lake. Resorts around the lake offer fine dining, water-craft rentals, lakeside cafes, picnic areas, good fishing and fun for the whole family. Then there’s Yosemite, a world-renowned National Park featuring a ski resort for the entire family to appreciate summer and winter. Enjoy vacation living year-round, all within a 30 minute commute to Fresno.
This is a special home for a very special family; it’s your turn to enjoy the peace and quiet of comfortable country living.
