PROPERTY DESCRIPTION: 
With 1/4 mile of incredible Upper Sardine Lake frontage located at the base of the majestic craggy Sierra Buttes, the stunning grandeur and beauty of this extremely rare wonder of nature will take your breath away. On the property is the historic Mountain Mine and, nearby, the Young America Mine, both, as well as others nearby, are known to have been highly productive gold mines. Fortunate, indeed, it would be to spend time in this spectacularly peaceful and serene, yet still undeniably wild and pristine place.

PROPERTY HIGHLIGHTS:

Extremely rare, still privately owned, this one of a kind 98 acre lakefront parcel in the Sierra Buttes/Lake Basin offers an unspoiled feel of wilderness.

During the Gold Rush, this Basin was alive with thousands of miners, many who "made their fortune" and others who did not. The historic Mountain Mine is on the site with others such as the Young America Mine nearby. The Mountain Mine was very productive, producing millions of dollars in gold as well as some of the largest nuggets ever found in the world.

Today many of the surrounding lands have been acquired by the USFS or Sierra County Land Trust. The purpose of the SCLT is to preserve and protect these lands for public use into perpetuity.

For those who enjoy the recreations of hiking, non-motorized boating, cross country skiing, snowmobiling, fishing, hunting, horseback, mountain biking, camping, gold panning,not to mention photography and painting out of doors, the area is unparalleled in the world. Yet, unbelievably, itremains relatively undiscovered.

Sardine Lake Lodge at the north end of Lower Sardine Lake is a seasonal destination dining experience!The deckhouse cocktail bar on the lake gives one the feeling of being somewhere in the Swiss Alps.Then, going into the old log cabin for dinner cuisine is beyond excellent! Several other "lodge" type facilities are operated seasonally through out the basin on the various lakes along the Gold Lakes Highway. By the way, Gold Lakes Highway is not plowed in the wintertime making an amazing snowmobile run for miles and great access into the back country.

Rich in cultural history and natural resources, the Sierra Buttes/Gold Lake Basin area isa treasure of pristine lakes, ponds, and streams which drain to the North Fork of the Yuba River and on to the Central Sacramento Valley. The area is of key importance to state watershed and wildlife protection.

Needless to say, wildlife, relatively undisturbed, is abundant with all species of mammals, birds, insects, fish, and plants native to the area.

This is a "once in a lifetime" chance for a true "heritage" purchase for the use and enjoyment of generations to come.

The property is located in the Scenic Corridor district and the county is currently updating their general plan. Due to this zoning and the ruggedness of the terrain, a large scale development would be a difficult challenge. Building a family retreat has the best possibilities and any serious buyer should contact the Sierra County Planning district in Downieville and ask to speak with the Planner at 530-289-3251.

Under NO circumstances should anyone attempt to enter any abandoned mine tunnel. They are NOT maintained and are deemed UNSAFE!

PROPERTY DESCRIPTION: 
World Class gorgeous with frontage on the North Yuba River and Howard Creek, as well as, the trout filled private pond and in full view of the craggy and majestic Sierra Buttes! The mountain meadow landscape hosts huge varieties of blooming flowers in season. Located at the south end of Gold Lakes Highway, summer and winter recreation is unsurpassed throughout the Lakes Basin. The beautifully designed and meticulously maintained home is oriented for year round comfort, convenience, enjoyment, and for an awe inspiring view from every window!

Private, yet easily accessible, this incredible 2.55 acres makes you feel like you're in another world. Wonderful as a single family home or retreat but has been operated seasonally as HiCountry B&B. It has been a very popular spot for those seeking serenity and relaxation while being in close proximity of Lakes Basin and just 5 minutes from the completely charming hamlet of Sierra City.

Rushing by is the North Fork of the Yuba River... close enough to hear the peaceful flow or the roaring turbulence of the season... close enough to just walk a few feet off the deck and throw a line. The awe inspiring Sierra Buttes loom as an incredible backdrop to view through the windows of the lovely home, from the huge deck, and across the trout filled private pond. Landscaping is indescribably a true labor of love. Throughout the growing season there are abundant floral displays and thick grassy green lawns.

Enjoying full water rights to both the North Fork of the Yuba River and to Howard Creek, there is no shortage of water for the pond or for irrigation and the maintenance of the grounds. Irrigation is controlled by a 12 station timer.

Not to be upstaged in any way, the wonderful home has been designed and oriented to take full advantage of the view and location. The huge great room sports a gigantic rock fireplace with an efficient insert that heats the whole house and invites one to sit down and relax in front of the fire. The kitchen and dining area are part of that great room for a cozy yet very spacious setting. Windows look directly over the pond to the Buttes and doors open to the deck from both ends of the room.

Three of the four bedrooms are en suite with private beautiful master bathrooms. The fourth bedroom uses a bathroom just across the hallway. Each very comfortable bedroom is tastefully designed and decorated as well as oriented for enjoying the out of doors beyond.

The property is very well equipped for year round living and access. The wide circular driveway is paved. There is an unseen equipment yard behind a group of trees.

A 20 KW generator is included that services the entire place in case of a power outage.

A monitored fire alarm system is hard wired.

There is efficient storage galore.

Fixtures and appliances, as well as, windows are all top of the line in quality.

Tile floors are heated with a thermostat.

There are 4 water heaters.

Jacuzzi tubs are in two of the master bathrooms. An 1845 6' claw foot tub is in another. All bathrooms have shower stalls.

Current owners have lovingly attended to every detail, operating it as a very popular Bed & Breakfast Inn for part of the year. This operation could be easily expanded throughout the winter months to accommodate the increasing popularity of snowmobilers and other winter sports enthusiasts, as well as, those just wanting a beautiful and peaceful spot to sit in front of the fire and take in the winter wonderland.

The house lends itself beautifully to a single family home but its arrangement and set-up would work extremely well for a shared ownership.

PROPERTY DESCRIPTION: 
The North Fork of the Yuba River rushes through this incredibly rare timbered property at the base of the jagged and towering Sierra Buttes. The well built home enjoys 1/4 mile riverfront right off the huge redwood deck. Every imaginable mountain recreational activity is on the property or very closely accessible.

The North Fork of the Yuba River rushes down out of the Tahoe National Forest, in all its magnificent wild splendor, right through this incredibly rare timbered 156 acres! It is located at the base of the jagged and towering Sierra Buttes, along the historic 49ers Gold Rush Trail, and just a little ways east of Sierra City. There is 1320' (1/4 mi) river frontage on each side with about 4 acres fairly level. Remainder is beautiful, including old growth, timber never having been logged, at least not in the past 150 years. Timber was professionally assessed several years ago at an estimated 700,000 BF of marketable timber. All timber, mineral, and water rights come with the property.

Topography ranges from nearly level and gentle near the river to gentle and steep uphill. Views from the top are beyond belief! Highway 49 intersects property offering easy year round access to the house and riverfront acreage.

A natural artesian well located about 600' uphill fills a 2500 gallon redwood tank at 60 GPM and 65# pressure then provides water to the house via gravity flow. Overflow fills the trout pond and proceeds to the river.

Sturdily built for the mountains in the late 70s, the well maintained house is of board and batten cedar with a new metal roof. The huge 660 sf, redwood deck is designed for the pure enjoyment of the rushing river, the trout pond, and the incredible scenery beyond. The sunken living room boasts a great stone and quartz fireplace with an insert that heats the whole house with forced air heating. Set up for year round living the big eat-in kitchen overlooks the river and comes with all new appliances as well as a large walk-in pantry and utility room. There are two large bedrooms and two full bathrooms. Dual paned windows are throughout, propane accommodates the water heater as well as the range, and the home is well insulated. An additional perk is the 50 plasma TV and high-end surround sound with 22 speakers.

Beneath the house is a full 1650 sf basement workshop/garage wired for 220 volt with two backup generators, a welder, an air compressor, and chainsaws. One additional "caretaker residence" would be permitted to be built under current zoning... and there is a lovely spot for it!

The potential for this property is tremendous. Most ideas would require Sierra County approval as property is located within the Scenic Corridor.

Average summer temperatures are 70 to 80 degrees during the day dropping to about 45 by evening. Winter temperatures range from 20 to 40 degrees. No air conditioning is needed!

One will be hard pressed in a lifetime to enjoy all the amenities and activities that are right here or very close, as if the location itself weren t enough! Fly fishing and gold panning are right in the backyard as are world class hiking and close-up wildlife viewing; i.e. deer, bear, mountain lion, raccoons, geese, ducks, birds, etc. Equestrian, quad, bicycle and snowmobile trails offer endless miles of absolutely amazing and definitely unsurpassed riding. Cross country skiing and snowshoeing are phenomenal. There are 37 lakes and 18 streams within 10 miles. The Pacific Crest Trail with parking area is just a mile down the road.

Also down the road a couple of miles is the delightful, quaint, and charming little town of Sierra City with excellent restaurants, watering holes, grocery store, art gallery, and libraryto mention a few. Certainly not to be overlooked is the Kentucky Mine with its wonderful historical museum and summer venue for wonderful under the stars music events.
