A River Runs Through It! 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
