Property description

This beautiful custom, ranch-style home was built by the very highly regarded local
contractor, Randy Gilbert Construction. The property is located on an alpine meadow
offering nine usable acres of land with several large grassy pastures. The home’s unique
design was thoughtfully and lovingly created by the owners from a sincere appreciation and
respect for the local environment, thereby, incorporating many elements of its rich history,
extraordinary natural beauty and Western culture.
The property was a corner of the original 1860 homestead parcel, cut off by the Carson City
Stagecoach easement. The property was originally owned by Byron Day, the first non-native
American man to winter in the valley. One begins to feel a connection with those who
inhabited these lands in past times and who made it possible for us to enjoy today and in the
future. An evening, relaxing on the spacious deck, offers serenity and the opportunity for
quietly enjoying a spectacular sunset, breathing in the clean Sierra air and, perhaps, just
simple reflection. The views are glorious! The Sawtooth is truly one of John Muir’s favorites
and totally exemplifies his “Range of Light” as he referred to The Sierra. This home has been
designed to share with family and friends as well. The perfect location for a holiday gathering,
party or whatever social event you may wish to host, this is the perfect home for entertaining.
You just need to make it yours to create your own special occasions and memories!
Centrally located, this home offers unlimited opportunities for exploration, adventure and
recreation! Enjoy fishing, hiking, off-roading, hunting, biking, camping, photography,
horseback riding and so much more. Visit the historic Ghost Town of Bodie; just minutes
away. The eastern entrance to Yosemite is just a short drive from Bridgeport and various
Nevada destinations lie just to the east and north. Mammoth Lakes is less than one hour to
the south and Bishop just beyond. Fourth of July in Bridgeport is an unforgettable event with
the rodeo, parade and fireworks. There are many events throughout the summer months that
people from all over the country and world return to enjoy year after year!
