Due to the health concerns created by Coronavirus we are offering personal 1-1 online video walkthough tours where possible.
Remote but accessible, this 80 acre parcel sits atop the Buffalo Gulch a mere 1.3 miles from HWY 140 up canyon on a historic, stable road. The site pictured is nestled into a knoll of oaks and pines, meadows and is encircled by slopes on three sides, all of which are uninhabited. The property itself is surrounded by Sierra National Forest with no neighbors residing within a mile, compelling great privacy, serenity, and simplicity. The sense impression on arriving to this "domain" is one of "Wildness". At 3200ft elevation, rich in natural resources with a dynamic array of flora and fauna encompassed in an extensive and varied terrain, each season is distinct. Water is both 2 springs and modern water well with an abundance of storage. On closer examination one senses the outline of its storied past and how that past has come to shape its current character the effect of which now appears both understated and sensorially overwhelming. The photos depict a discretely manipulated landscape created and carved out by hand with a loose aggregate of buildings and meadows compatible to both a rustic and wild setting. As a whole they now comprise the latest "modern" version of settlement in what was once an area of sizable human toil and occupation during the lengthy and legendary span of Gold Mining dating back to the 1880s, part of Mariposa County's growth and foundation. The most vestigial remnants in the Buffalo Gulch here were not the scope and scale of the mining efforts per se, but the array of rock, soil, water, and the extreme effort brought forth to produce the fruits and vegetables integral to feeding nearly all the mining camps within this, the Feliciana District. This story is felt upon this landscape. This 80 acre oasis is more than just property, it is an emotional, spiritual, intellectual retreat from the hum drum of every day life. This setting is both intimate and encompassing. In addition you are a mere 30 minutes to Yosemite National Parks entrance and only 7 minutes to recreation in the Merced River Canyon. Truly an experience to see and feel so schedule your appointment today and bring your hiking shoes.
