Here’s your Escape Route! If you’ve heard of Kennedy Meadows you already know what I mean. If you haven’t heard of it, let me introduce you.
In the Southern edge of the Sierra Nevada Mountains, in East Tulare County, CA, at 6500’ elevation exists a quiet retreat for the nature lovers and a sportsman’s destination for those who would fish, hunt, hike or ride. There are hundreds of miles of trails for hiking, horseback riding and off road vehicles. The PCT passes right through here. Snow is plowed off the main roads in the winter.
This is only a three hour drive from downtown Los Angeles. Head West off the 395 from near Inyokern and make your way up to this wooded, green Sierra Mountain refuge. A caution: There is another Kennedy Meadows, completely unrelated, further up the 395 and closer to Mammoth. This ain’t that.
This property measures 185 feet at the front road, 240 feet back on the right side of the property, 349 feet back on the left side and 215 feet across (at a diagonal) in the back. It is located on a gentle slope and is quite wooded. It has a dirt, private road that meets a paved road a couple hundred feet north. There are a few houses within a few hundred feet, but this is a quiet area.
Utilities are limited. There is phone service. Property owners rely on septic systems, propane tanks and generators, solar panels or windmills for power. This is a well water area. This area would easily accommodate a trailer. In fact there is an old trailer on property that comes with the parcel.
There are two ‘social hubs’ in this area: First there is Grumpy Bears Retreat Restaurant, Tavern and information center at 98887 Kennedy Meadows Rd. They have events during the year such as BBQ cook offs, tractor parades, Chillie Cook-offs, catfish fry’s, etc… Then further up a ways is the Kennedy Meadows General Store and restaurant at 96740 Beach Meadows Rd., where you can get all your ‘gettins’. If you’ve seen the movie or read the book “Wild” the main character, Cheryl, spends some time at the location where she gets good advice and insight. There is also a property owners association, although there are no mandatory HOA fees.
This location is also only a few minutes away from the Porter Ranch and Sacatar Meadows Airport, both private dirt runways.
This is an affordable opportunity to own a piece of the Sierra Nevada’s to indulge your mountain loving self. Why not contact me today to enquire about making this your Sierra Solitude home?
