Wrightwood, California, 92397 $825,000
Historic cedar log cabin adjacent to the Wrightwood Mountains, close to skiing, Pacific Coast Trail hiking, and wide Blue Ridge views above the Mojave Desert, an expansion of the first area ranger station built in the mid 1800’s, known as “Green Gate.” The cabin sits at a 5,900-foot elevation on 2.98 acres, 2 connected parcels, of wooded land that can be developed or retained for privacy. Travel is 5 minutes to town center, convenient in winter. The property has access to water and electric utilities from Sparrow Rd. The cabin features a central rock fireplace in the living room, expansive porch for entertainment and dining, back wing with 2 bedrooms and a bathroom, and extensive wood work. Following possession by the first ranger, owners have included from 1910 the cattle rancher Sumner Wright after whom Wrightwood is named. In 1945, the Rajagopals acquired the property, whose descendants are the current owners after 72 years, and have entertained at Green Gate such notables as Aldous and Maria Huxley, Jiddu Krishnamurti, Igor Stravinski, Greta Garbo, and Franklin Lacey.
