Nestled in Tahoe National Forest, this water-rich foothills oasis of over 65 acres (zoned FR-160), with stunning long range views, is as peaceful as it is private. With just enough creature comforts needed for modern life coupled with a rustic charm, its the perfect place to take a step back from the hustle bustle to enjoy nature and living self-sufficiently.
Whether you’re dreaming of a hobby farm, artists’ retreat, income producing property, timber land, Hip Camp, or the perfect spot to shelter-in-place, the potential here is endless. The sellers have put 20+ years of love into this place providing an excellent foundation for any buyer to achieve their vision.
Completely off-grid and powered by propane, solar AND hydroelectric, the 800+ square foot home is perfectly situated to take in the birdsong and long range sunsets. This custom cabin has the primary bedroom and the bathroom on the main floor with additional sleeping and storage space in the loft. Thoughtful design details include arched doorways, unique tongue-and-groove soffit, and an abundance of double-paned windows and sliding glass doors. The entire space is awash in light. And you’ll stay extra warm and cozy with the wood stove on cool mountain nights.
A two stall barn with additional area for hay storage (60 bales) is accompanied by multiple outbuildings along with several fully fenced corral areas which have in the past housed horses, pigs, goats and chickens. A strong well, with new in 2020 solar pump and 3,000 gallons storage, produced 7 gallons-per-minute when last tested. Additionally, a hydraulic ram pump transports water from year-round South Fork Greenhorn Creek to a 1,000 gallon storage tank and overflows to the seasonal pond that greets you as you enter the improved portion of the property. Good 5G coverage with AT&T and over 50 TV free channels with the antenna.
An abundance of sun with south and west facing orientation has allowed for multiple garden areas and a dynamic assortment of fruit trees, flowers and herbs. The expansive panoramic views allow for long distance viewing of fireworks displays all the way to Roseville, Sacramento and beyond!
Literally in the middle of nowhere, the property is 7.5 miles to pavement from Highway 20, Cascade Shores and or You Bet. Under 30 minutes to the Cascade Shores store and Scotts Flat Reservoir. 4WD or AWD highly recommended.
