SPECTACULAR VIEWS! This home is located in one of the Eastern Sierra's best kept secret locations - Virginia Lakes. It is only 9 miles (as the crow flies) from Yosemite National Park and about 35 miles drive to Yosemite's Tioga Pass Entrance. Furthermore, Lee Vining, Mammoth Lakes, Mono Lake, Lake Tahoe, Bridgeport, and Reno/Carson City Nevada are all just a short drive away. The home was originally built by a custom builder as his private retreat from the city and has been recently fortified with new concrete footings and plated with ultra-strong Hardee Board siding (its built like a fortress). This is a great home for off the grid living, because it comes well equipped with a 1200-gallon, indoor, freeze-proof water tank, solar panels, battery bank, spacious basement area and workshop (not included in the SF). Because it is perched at a higher elevation than many of the other homes in the Virginia Lakes area, 268 Summit Drive receives an excellent cell phone and internet signal.
