SOLD....This extremely secluded ranch property is located in the center of Dunlap. It is part of one of the original ranch properties in Dunlap. In fact, at one time, this property was part of my great grandfather's ranch. At its center is one of the area's most visually impressive physical features, Goat Rock. This massive granite dome lies wholly on the property and is visible throughout the Dunlap valley area. This magnificent ranch offers a virtually blank canvas for you to create a signature family estate.
This property offers the epitome of both privacy and accessibility. Location is only 1 mile from the Dunlap School yet it provides complete and total privacy along with some magnificent views. Access is off of Millwood Road to a gated entry. The southern half of the property has a large amount of good usable land with gentle terrain. The northern half of the property has steeper terrain that is dominated by the massive granite dome, "Goat Rock". The property also has frontage on Highway 180. The land has a great mixture of mature oaks, manzanita, and other trees. In addition, there are a variety of unique rock formations as well as numerous seasonal streams. The scenic beauty of this property is breathtaking, with awesome views in every direction.
The owners had a new residence constructed in 2014. This is a custom 1,813 square foot manufactured home with 5 bedrooms and 2 baths. The home is sited on a huge pad of over 3/4 of an acre and has been set at ground level. It features 2x6 framed construction with Hardy Board concrete exterior walls. In addition, there is a freestanding 1200 square foot combination garage/shop that also serves as a game room. The home has a very open floor plan with a large living area and isolated master. Although it was built in 2014, the home has seen virtually no use and is in almost new condition. There are two wells and a 5,000 gallon water storage tank. There is also a nice fully enclosed poultry pen and enclosed dog pen. The home compound area is fenced off from the balance of the ranch. The drive from the gated entry has solar lighting all the way to the home.
Although the home area is very nice, the owners had a much larger double pad area constructed just below "Goat Rock" to serve as a future site for an estate residence. The main pad is over an acre in size with a smaller pad set below to provide a site for a shop and barn. This location has "Goat Rock" as its back drop with a panoramic view of the entire Dunlap valley. It is an absolutely awesome setting.
The land offers great variety with large, nearly flat meadows, tree covered hillsides, numerous seasonal creeks, and steeper, more densely covered mountain areas that provide great cover for a variety of wildlife including deer, quail, wild turkey and all of the other animals one might expect to find in a truly rural setting. Of course, you can't forget the stunning "Goat Rock", a true sculpture by God. I was 8 years old the first time I ever climbed it on my first deer hunting trip with my Dad. It was an experience that is still ingrained into my memory. In short, this one property offers a microcosom of the entire local mountain area. It is truly one of a kind.
As always, I talk about any negatives. Not much to say on this one. The drive in from Millwood Road is a combination of gravel and dirt, but that really isn't abnormal for the area. The home area looks a little barren due to the lack of any landscaping, but that just gives you a blank canvas to create your very own paradise.
Well there you have it. The opportunity to create your very own paradise on earth. A superb 382 acre ranch site with all of the basic amenities and room to grow, complete and total privacy with easy access to the valley, and panoramic views in all directions. Take a look at the pictures. They were taken in mid-October. Imagine how amazing this property looks in winter and spring when everything is green.
