Properties Available in Forest Meadows

Forest Meadows is a planned community located four miles east of the charming Mother Lode community of Murphys off Highway 4 (Ebbetts Pass) at the perfect elevation above the fog and below most of the snow. Cooler than downtown Murphys in the summer. Underground utilities (water, sewer, power) with two parks, swimming pools and tennis courts. Sportspersons’ paradise with nearby lakes, skiing, hiking and camping. Award winning wineries.

The Forest Meadows Development Company retained a few desirable parcels of land along the Forest Meadows Golf course for potential condominiums. In 1973 the development was begun. Robert Trent Jones, jr. designed and constructed the18 hole golf course.

In the early ’80’s, the popularity of condominiums had waned so these choice parcels of adjacent golf course land remained as a wonderful park-like setting, supporting the ambiance of the picturesque, challenging Executive golf course.

Though located inside the Forest Meadows Development, these large parcels are not a part of the development and are not in the Homeowners Association. All are suitable for wells and septic, with public water and sewer available, if desired, but not required.

 

These unique large parcels are now being brought to the market for estate home sites, with surrounding acreage as part of the parcels. The largest parcel (12.9 acres) is featured below.

1. “Tennis Ranch” (golf course parcel at Sandalwood and Angels Creek Rd). This unique and sizable parcel is R3 zoned and is 12.9 acres. During the construction of the Development, quantities of dirt were taken from this parcel to build the nearby dam, creating a beautiful bowl surrounded by pines. The dam was constructed over the Angels Creek to hold water mainly for irrigation of the course, but it attracts water foul, fish, sports activities, attractive reflections and the imagination. The approximately 2 acre flat area left was considered for a future tennis ranch, thus the name. What remains is a very desirable accessible, but private flat buildable area, surrounded by evergreens and varied terrain. Located adjacent to the 6th fairway and on, but not visible from, Sandalwood Drive and Angels Creek Roads. The creek runs through the lowest part of the acreage. A very desirable setting for an estate home with many features and uses available to the new owner. Price $225,000.
