A Rare Find Just A Small Drive Away

Welcome to Bluebonnet Estates - a rare gated community nestled in the Sierra foothills just outside the historic town of Mariposa, California, the western gateway to Yosemite National Park. If you are looking for a few acres of vacant land on which to build your dream home, Bluebonnet Estates is ideal - a small, private 12-lot subdivision developed by the owners, Joan and Louie Edwards.

Each of the lots being offered for sale is approximately five acres, and all represent the natural beauty of the Sierras. The terrain is rolling hills, with multiple granite outcroppings and an abundance of oak trees and other native vegetation, including pine, buckeye, bay, manzanita, and redbud, which blooms brilliantly in early Spring. You experience all four seasons living in Mariposa, and with an elevation for these lots around 2000 feet, there is occasional snow in the Winter.


It is not often that a private gated community becomes available, where you can enjoy the fresh mountain air, the simplicity of small town living, and the peace and quiet of the country.

The town of Mariposa is only three miles away, at the intersection of Highways 140 and 49. The town has a population of around 10,000, and many practical amenities such as a hospital, several nice restaurants, shops, and museums. Please check out the Area Information.

Bluebonnet Estates is accessed from Ben Hur Road by a private unmanned gate, operated by remote control or electronic keypad. The rock pillar entrance to this subdivision speaks to the beauty within. If you’re searching for privacy, the north side of the property is primarily cliffs overlooking Spring Creek, and most of the southern side abuts Bureau of Land Management (BLM) land, making the Bluebonnet Estates subdivision very unique, with little chance of adjacent development. There are nominal building restrictions , such as the requirement for a home with a permanent foundation, and, yes, horses are allowed and welcome.
