PRICE REDUCED to $19500 and listed with Road Runner Realty. This lot in Borrego Springs, California (an International Dark Sky Community) is the nearest one acre parcel to the Anza-Borrego Desert State Park visitor center and the Annual Nightfall Star Party at the Palm Canyon Resort.  It has a circular driveway, a water meter with established water service, electricity to the lot line and a cement pad for 360 degree dark sky viewing.  It is a beautiful location for a residence and has breathtaking views of the surrounding mountains. In the meantime, it might also be a great dark sky location to set up a DOB when staying at the Palm Canyon Resort assuming that this type of activity does not violate one of the many San Diego County rules.  Upon request I can provide a Zillow link so you can see a top down view of the lot relative to its surroundings.  I paid $56500 for this lot about a decade ago and added the improvements for an all in cost of over $60,000. FYI, a new water connection, according to the water company, costs $15000-$18000, so the price of the lot is only slightly more than the water connection already on the property.   The prior owner paid $80000 and the county’s assessed value is  $64,093!  The listing agent for this property is David Cragoe at Road Runner Realty in Borrego Springs.
