Looking for views and privacy, too? Here's a great property with three 5 acre lots located at the end of a very quiet cul-de-sac lane. The property is at the end of a ridge that overlooks both the western and southern San Joaquin Valley areas. The views are spectacular!! Included are three contiguous 5 acre parcels. The land comes up from the road to the top of the ridge and then over to the other side. Each lot is a separate legal parcel that can be built upon.
This is very secluded property. With a top of the ridge setting, you'll never have a neighbor looking at you. With 3 lots you can build a home on each with the possibility of a second residence on each. The land is mostly hillside but there are good building sites on each parcel with room for outbuildings. There is little brush, so the land is very suitable for grazing and it is zoned agricultural.
How about any negatives? Nearest power is about 600 feet from the property, so getting electrical service will be a bit higher than the norm but not greatly so. Location is about 5 miles from the highway so commute time to the valley is a bit longer, but still well under an hour.
If you are looking for a family compound property, this really fits the bill. You are getting three 5 acre parcels at an average price of under $37,000 per parcel which is way under the going rate for 5 acre properties. Or if you just want extra privacy, build on the center lot and have a larger buffer on each side. No matter what you do, you will enjoy some spectacular views. The seller is willing to consider carrying paper with a large down payment.
