Just Across the San Joaquin River from the Geographical Center of California lies this 40 acre tranquil ranch. It offers a unique area for riding flat, hunt, western, endurance or driving. You can stay on the ranch or ride into the Sierra National Forest. There is a seasonal creek, a trail to Redinger Lake plus miles of dirt driveways. Throw in just 4 miles to 24 hr. inexpensive fuel and a convenience store that is open 6 AM-10pm and only 6 miles further to a Dollar General, Ace Hardware, full size grocery and CVS. It is just 35 miles to Clovis down Route 168 from the ranch. Those last four miles are filled with beautiful sunsets, birds headed for their nests or the lake, deer looking for that last drink. Of course there is turkeys seeking a tree, in the fall, tarantulas crossing the road in search of a mate and sometimes a bear in a dumpster that he fell through the top. Never a dull moment, yet so relaxing to hear the ducks quack or the turkeys gobble after listen to the noises of work all day.
Great for that hideaway to grow your own food, be away from light and noise pollution. No you cannot drive by to see it as off paved road and neighbors watch out for each other and help each other out. But we all enjoy our private acres.
Housing consists of a 960 sq.ft. home remodeled in 2021 with a carpeted 11 x 17 master bedroom and 9 x 12 second bedroom, bath w/shower saver, energy efficient windows, 2 mini-splits. Flooring is laminate in Living/Dining/Hall. Lino in the Utility, Kitchen and Bath. Appliances included are washer/dryer, refrigerator, stove and microwave with beverage storage below. Draperies and Rods remain. The living dining "L" has built in cabinets to display your trophies and ribbons. Outside there is a complete RV set-up, a place to hook up a 50 amp generator and a 35 ft cover over a Jacuzzi and area for storage or workshop. The front of home also has the same size cover.
A second home is 1440 sq. ft. plus an enclosed porch that would make a great tack room. It has a utility room entrance adjacent to step out of boots to avoid tracking dirt into the 3 bedroom, 2 bath home. Another door from enclosed porch leads to a covered porch which runs to west side of home where you look out towards the geographical center of California and experience awesome sunsets. The large bonus room off of this part of the porch has so many possibilities. It can be finished in paneling or have more coats of drywall and be painted for large gatherings. Or the walls could be removed and converted to a large screened in porch for wonderful relaxing evenings after coming in from an event. By converting it to a screened in porch, you can have a 4th bedroom or a walk through office from the utility room. There is already one door out to the bonus room from the living/dining "L" which also has a cabinet for more trophies. In 2003, we did a complete kitchen remodel with new cabinets, garbage disposal and dishwasher plus you have a propane stove and room for a double door refrigerator plus a bar and a large kitchen eating area. The hall bathroom was remodeled in 2020. Master bath has large shower stall. Painting and flooring left undone for your material and color choices in living/dining room and one bedroom.
The 40 acres has 7-8 acres of woven fenced pasture with scattered large oaks to east. The flat area nearest the west end of it would make an excellent large arena. There is already a pipe under the driveway to provide water to the area. On the side where the homes are, there is plenty of area for barns and corrals. Right now, it is a blank page waiting for you to design your facility.. There is also a great well with a storage tank which serves the property. A mile off the main road helps keep your horses safe if they get loose.
The perfect place to raise your champions. Both homes Have been moved onto county tax roles. WE have all the paperwork. Would make excellent family compounds to be able to raise food and be away from towns or rooms to rent for contractors working in the forest or on the electric hydro systems as they do yearly. Or for people wanting to stay in a quiet area where they can hike in the forest or bring their horses to ride. Price is $318k with large home as is needing carpet and some minor repairs to suit your needs.
Everyone that has seen this property has wanted it. But they did not qualify and wasted 2 months of time that I do not have to waste. From now on, if you need to finance it, you need 20% down depending on mortgage company. You need to have a letter from them to email to me. I can provide mortgage companies who have said they would finance. We cannot carry any part of the mortgage due to our health and financing makes price firm at $318k as it extends the time we must stay here which increases fuel costs, increase costs for spare drivers and their return air fair. If you are able to pay cash, we need a letter from your bank. There is a 10k discount for cash, but need letter to say $318k and then we will discuss the discount.
The only reason this ranch is for sale is I have Congestive Heart Failure, COPD and triggers of wood stove and control burns. My heart is only at 40% and those triggers lower it more. A $15K DISCOUNT TO A CASH BUYER BY THURSDAY, 11/30/23 is more urgent then ever so that we can move to TX. my hubby and I can get better medical care and our son can respond to job offers. Note, title done recently so it will be quick and less expensive to my knowledge.
PLEASE NO WHOLESALERS. We do Coop with realtors.
