This sparkling clean modern retreat is situated on private three acres of rock spires, huge boulders and stunning views. It's a magical place of respite from civilization, yet only ten minutes to town. The house offers sprawling decks, Wi-Fi, Wolf range, gas BBQ and gas fire pit.

The space
The house is a pristine prefab modern home on three secluded acres set amidst rock spires and huge boulders from the Jurassic, between 140-200 million years ago. It's located at 4,600' elevation where spectacular desert meets the eastern escarpment of the Sierra Nevada.

The elegance and comfort you'll find inside make for a welcome contrast to the rugged surroundings. Creature comforts include a new heating and A/C system and electric fireplace. All glass is double-pane.

The home is wrapped by a sprawling deck - every room has a sliding door leading outside, so indoor and outdoor living flow together. The flooring is hardwood floors except in the bedrooms, and the deck is made of a soft synthetic material that you can walk on in bare feet.

The bedrooms and living areas are well-appointed with stylish furniture. The kitchen has a Wolf range, dishwasher, microwave and coffeemaker and French press. There's a separate laundry room with washer and dryer. Outside features a gas fire pit and built-in gas BBQ. The home has free WI-FI and a large-screen TV with a Roku device for Netflix or Amazon streaming, and a collection of DVD's (cable TV isn't available in Lone Pine).

As you look out from any room your gaze will be captivated by magnificent rocks and towering mountains - the Inyos to the east and Sierra to the west. Across the street is parkland. There's fishing withing a 5 minute drive. Whitney Portal is only 20 minutes away.

Some of the most beautiful rock formations are those on and around the property. From the front deck you see Whale Rock, a spire that looks like a breaching whale. At the edge of the rear deck you’re standing beneath Massive Rock, an 80-foot monolith. Stroll up the hill and you can sit on a boulder and look at Mt. Whitney, highest point in the 48 states.

Where you’ll be

Lone Pine, California, United States

Amazing location in the Alabama Hills above Lone Pine. Across the street from parkland. Great trout fishing within five minutes. Only 15 minutes from Whitney Portal - perfect base camp for a mountain trip. Close to Movie Flat, where hundreds of films were made.

I've been exploring the Eastern Sierra for many years - some of my life's most memorable moments happened in these parts. I was involved in the desert wilderness movement in the 1990's and in the early 2000's I traversed the length of the Inyo Mountains as a fundraiser for the hospital in Lone Pine. I also wrote a cover story in LA Weekly about an unsolved mystery in Saline Valley.
