This newly constructed custom home is just 45 minutes from Yosemite and 1 mile from the historic gold rush town of Mariposa.
Upscale, comfortable and clean, the Oak Meadows House will accommodate 6 people in bedrooms, 2 in the sleeping loft and 2 more in the TV room for up to 10 people total.
It has an easy living, open floor plan with plenty of space to visit, enjoy meals together, or just rest up from the day's adventures.
Historical downtown Mariposa is 1 mile away. Visit the California State mineral museum, or the State's oldest operating courthouse. There are ample shopping opportunities, a variety of restaurants and many excellent antique stores and boutiques.
Public transportation (YARTS) from Mariposa is a convenient, stress-free way to travel to Yosemite. Bus fare includes admission into the park.
The Oak Meadows House is designed from top to bottom as a 'green' building.
It has a passive solar design that was built into the hillside complete with radiant floor heating. The electricity is produced by photo-voltaic panels and the grey water is distributed to the landscape.
There is a convenient recycling center in the kitchen, and the kitchen green waste are composted to improve the garden's soil health.
Recycled redwood was used to create shade trellises to mellow the summer sun on the east side of the house.
There is now a culinary herb garden for our guests to add fresh flavor to their meals, and an organic vegetable garden to browse. (No promises, seasonally dependent)
We are intent on creating a peaceful, relaxing and healthy space for you to enjoy before and after visiting the wonders of Yosemite National Park.
