Built in 1973, this 1800 sq. ft. mountain cabin home boasts high beams, a wood frame, and decks on the front and back. The main house and downstairs apartment can be occupied separately, with separate entrances.

One of the truly unique aspects of this property is its connection to the history of Yosemite National Park. When John Muir first envisioned the park's boundaries, he included the lands of the Yosemite Lumber Company on the western ridge above the Merced River. However, when the lumber company objected, the final 1906 boundary established for Yosemite National Park skirted these holdings. The O'Connor family bought this land from the Lumber Company and managed it as a guest ranch. Upon Mr. O'Connor's death, the land was divided between three O'Connor children. In the 1970s, a portion of the property was sold to developers who created a residential community called Yosemite West. The Pacific Forest Trust bought the remaining O'Connor tracts in 2005 to prevent their subdivision and development, protecting them and the Park. Over the last 15 years, the Pacific Forest Trust has stewarded the properties to enhance their outstanding natural qualities. With a conservation easement in place, the next steward is allowed many opportunities to enjoy this property.

As the new owner of this incredible property, you'll have the unique opportunity to conserve for perpetuity a big section of land originally intended to be part of Yosemite National Park. At the same time, you'll be able to enjoy the benefits of having a house in a national park, with Yosemite National Park and Sierra National Forest as your next-door neighbors. With direct access to tens of thousands of acres to explore, including Badger Pass ski area and Glacier Point, this property truly is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.
