The Grounds:

.

The house is set on 4 acres, at the bottom of a 450 foot driveway.

While the house is on a quiet cul-de-sac, we're well away from that quiet road and from the neighbors.

There's plenty of opportunity for short strolls on the property or to view wildlife and sunsets from the various benches scattered around. A particular favorite spot is our "meditation area" a few steps from the house, but worlds away. Hawks and Condor soar quite close on the mountain updraft.

We have Four Seasons here and the property is magical in different ways, every day.

 

Our neighborhood - Bear Valley Springs, California:

Bear Valley Springs is a gated community, located in the Tehachapi Mountains in California. As far as we can tell, these are really the Southern Sierra mountains, separated officially from the Southern Sierras by the Route 58 pass. Our community spans 25,000 acres and 3,500 home sites, with 2,500 homes now built. With an estimated population of 7,500, there's lots of space and open trails for horseback riding or hiking and lakes for fishing. Bear Valley Springs' Elevation ranges from 4,118 feet to 6,934 feet (Bear Mountain).

Our house is at 6,200 feet, with views into the three valleys: Cummings Valley, Bear Valley and the San Joaquin Valley.

View the spectacular sunrises and sunsets from the house, through walls of windows and the 8 foot high picture window doors . . . or from the two attached decks.

We have four distinct seasons at the house, including significant winter snowfall. The house is heated by three large propane furnaces, supplemented by 2 Pellet Stoves, a gas stove and a gas fireplace. With double glazed windows and multiple heat sources, the house is snug and comfy in any weather.

On top of the mountain as we are, we escape the summer heat of the valleys. Some days in the summer the temperature in Tehachapi can reach or exceed 100 degrees, but at our house the temperature rarely exceeds 80 degrees and we often have a cool breeze.

We're on 4 acres, but look down on undeveloped forest that is spectacular in any season.

There's a meditation area below the house and behind a big rock, where you can sit on a bench with only the sounds of nature to aid the slowing of your heartbeat.

Rental of our property for 7 days or more comes with access to the Bear Valley Springs Country Club, Golf Course, Tennis, Equestrian Center, Horse Trails, Rifle Range, Swimming and Indoor Recreation (Basketball, pool tables, Ping-Pong, Foosball, etc.) The lakes and wilderness areas are always available.
