The largest and most expensive farm in our slide show is located in the western foothills of the Sierra Nevada mountains, a stone's throw from Yosemite and Sequoia national parks. There are two separate parcels (190.56 and 98.16 acres) that feature a lake and three ponds for cattle and recreation. You'll also find fishing, hunting, horse trails and plenty of grazing land. Wildlife is abundant on the property, making it a great place for a photographer. If your goal is some peace and quiet, you'll find it here. Situated in the foothills and surrounded by greenery, the craftsman-style house is also the largest you'll find here. The home's water source is the property's artesian well. And if you're looking for some dinner, you can fish for bass right out of the lake. There's also an oversized garage, workshop and large barn for all of your equipment.
