Real Estate in Fox Farm – FOXF (area)

Fox Farm Area Overview

Real Estate in Fox Farm, Big Bear

Beautifully landscaped Fox Farm home in Big Bear.

All the developments in this area are fairly recent, some newer than others. The homes range from mid-sized but the majority are on the large, custom side. Fox Farm is the most central part of the valley, with development surrounding it to get the suburban benefits, such as close-by shopping and clean, landscaped neighborhoods. The Fox Farm Real Estate neighborhoods have still retained sufficient natural terrain and trees to bring the mountain setting.

  • Upscale, modern, mostly medium to large homes
  • Landscaped, clean yards
  • Suburban benefits
  • Central to everything and close to shopping
  • Some underground utilities to maintain views

Natural Surroundings

The Stanfield Marsh Bird Sanctuary (also known as Baker Pond) lies just to the north of this area, so it is an easy visit. The sanctuary has ducks, coots and shorebirds, such as the Great Blue Heron, year-round. In the spring and fall, residents can get an awesome view of large groups of white pelicans, Canada geese and other migrating birds that make Big Bear Lake a stopover between their northern nesting areas and the Salton Sea. It is also a great place to see turkey vultures, sometimes in large flocks, as well as bald eagles.

The neighborhoods, though not heavily forested, still have sufficient natural setting and tree cover to attract the smaller mountain mammals—squirrels, raccoons, chipmunks—and birds—robins, finches, Stellar (blue) jays, pine siskins and sparrows.
