This extremely private 40 Acre property is accessible via easement through a neighboring ranch on a road maintained by PG&E. Just over the property line, there is one electric pole that offers power to the pump house, well, and main building pad. From the building pad you have peek-a-boo views of the Sierra through the trees, and you can hear the sounds of the river in the canyon below.
Head downhill on your private road to the river, where the middle fork of the Cosumnes runs year round. The portion of the river that runs through this property includes a deep swimming hole and flat lounging rocks perfect for cooling off from the summer heat. With a seasonal creek feeding directly into the bend in the river, it’s also a great place to pan for gold!
This property is the perfect canvass for those looking to build their private rural home, vacation compound, or small family farm.
The well pumps at 9.25gpm and has passed water tests with flying colors. The pump house is a sturdy structure that can also house tools, a refrigirator, or other vital items.
Given the remoteness of this property, having power already at the property is a major asset.
Owners are willing to finance with 25% down to qualified applicants.
Details and Documents
This property is in El Dorado County and is zoned RL-40.
This is a split estate, and the BLM owns the mineral rights. The owners maintain a mining claim on the land, thereby claiming all rights to access the subsurface, and will transfer that claim to the new owner. In 2014 the owners spoke with the BLM about re-purchasing the mineral rights. At the time the option was available. They are happy to share details and documents about that process with prospective buyers.
This property has 200ft setbacks, and in 2014 the owners were granted a variance by the county on the Western border giving them permission to build within 100ft of the property line, making the full building pad a viable space. An additional variance would require a formal application process. The owners can share documents and emails about the setbacks.
For those interested in cannabis cultivation, El Dorado county will issue permits this year for cultivation. The owners can share what they know about the application process with interested prospective buyers. Properties such as this one with RL-40 zoning are eligible for permits granting up to 10,000 sqft of outdoor and mixed-light cultivation space for recreational adult use.
