All lots are required to have proof of water prior to transfer of title. A well must be drilled prior to close of escrow - the cost is a negotiable part of the sales contract. It is the buyer’s responsibility to install the pump and accessories, and although this does not need to be done immediately, it should be done in a timely manner to keep the drilled well from deteriorating.


Pacific, Gas and Electric (PG&E)
provides electric power to the development. Lots 4, 7, 8, 9, 10, and 11 have power poles on the property. The buyer is responsible for bringing power from the pole to the building site.



Gas is supplied by propane. There are a number of propane companies that service the Mariposa area. Propane tanks can be owned or leased.

Phone Lines

Phone lines currently run through Lots 7, 8, 9, 10, and 11. Sierra Telephone is the local phone company that will provide phone service to each home. Internet access is also available.


There is no cable TV in this rural location, however satellite service is available, and has been very reliable.


All lots have passed percolation tests for septic systems. It is the buyer’s responsibility to conduct perc tests where the leach lines will be located, which is dependent on the building site.

Fire Protection

Fire protection is provided by the Mariposa County Fire Department, with the closest volunteer station a mile and a half away, and by the California Department of Forestry (CALFIRE).
