Description

This spectacular view home is located in one of the Eastern Sierra’s best kept secret locations – Virginia Lakes. At only 9 miles (as the crow flies) from Yosemite National Park and about 35 miles drive to Yosemite’s Tioga Pass Entrance, living at 268 Summit Drive is almost like being in the park itself. Furthermore, Mammoth Lakes, Mono Lake, Lake Tahoe, Bridgeport, and Reno Nevada are all just a short day-drive away. The home was originally built by a custom builder as his private retreat from the city and has been recently fortified with new concrete footings and plated with ultra-strong Hardie Board siding (it’s built like a fortress). The original architecture and recent upgrades make this home feel like a natural extension of the rugged terrain where it is perched. This is a great home for off the grid living, because it comes well equipped with a 1200-gallon, indoor, freeze-proof water tank, solar panels, and a battery bank. Additionally, there is a spacious basement area (not included in the square footage) that could be converted into an office/art studio or used to warehouse a large cache of supplies. There is a beautiful stone fireplace in the living room and an efficient wood-burning stove downstairs in the master bedroom. Cedar interior siding along with the exposed vaulted ceilings create a warm and rich interior. Because it is perched at a higher elevation than many of the other homes in the Virginia Lakes area, 268 Summit Drive receives an excellent cell phone and internet signal and boasts the most awe-inspiring views and remarkable star gazing opportunities in the neighborhood. Furthermore, you can enjoy some of the world’s best backcountry skiing, hiking, and fishing right outside your front door. Imagine returning home to BBQ or roast marshmallows outside in the firepit area after a long day of enjoying your favorite outdoor activity with your friends and family. For the outdoor adventurer or nature lover, it doesn’t get any better!
