90 Miles from San Jose Airport. Available NOW.

Located in San Benito County about 45 minutes SE of Hollister, in the "Willow Springs" development, I have a 40-acre ranch available for sale via a regular real estate transaction ($450k OR BEST OFFER). Lease-to-Own is possible only with substantial down.

Wonderful, quiet setting, in a beautiful valley with "million dollar" views from the already cut and leveled building pad at the top of the property. With many Oak trees, flat to sloping terrain, gated, fenced and cross-fenced this is an ideal set up for horses. You can ride for hours along the roads and easements immediately surrounding the property (no need to trailer the horses anywhere to give them a good workout). Two build pads have been cut.

Income possibilities include organic foods, a vineyard or capturing/selling the water for bottled water (see below)!

The property is served by Panoche Road, County Road J1, (branching off Airline Highway/State 25) and the home is reached by a 1.5-mile dirt road (good condition, and well packed, so it is passable in wet weather). You wouldn't believe that this property is only about 90 miles from the San Jose Airport. A very peaceful, private location, with clean, dark skies at night for amazing stargazing!

A trailer can be pulled up and utilities are installed, ready to go, for weekend camping or living while you build your dream house!

Utilities already included:

Telephone - Landline INSTALLED (cell networks are unavailable, except on some local hilltops).

Water -- your own DEVELOPED, private spring with gravity feed and 5,000 gallons of storage near the lower building sight (water can be pumped in the INSTALLED pipeline to another 5000-gallon tank located at the very top of the property to service the upper building pad). This is an excellent natural spring with great tasting water and it is the reason this area is called Willow Springs!

Sewer -- septic tank and leach line are INSTALLED.

Barn Foundation -- Foundation has been poured for a 9 box stall barn with ¾ bath and tack room.

Power -- a solar system on a tracking mount with inverter/charge controller, etc., and powerhouse has been INSTALLED (new batteries needed to energize the system). Under a purchase agreement, PG&E can be brought in to either or both of the building sites already leveled (a PG&E power pole is right by the front gate) for an additional charge.

Internet and TV are via satellite service subscription.
