Listing ID: Lake #2278
This property is located in Lakeport, California, which is approximately 120 miles (2 1/2 hours drive) north of the San Francisco Bay Area. This is a 20 acre parcel, of which 10 to 15 acres are plantable. The rest is gently sloping with a nice view of the lake (Clear Lake) from the top of the property. Dotted with oak trees (blue oak, aka Quercus douglasii), a couple of walnut trees and a large blackberry patch. Mostly pasture land, currently used as grazing land for cows. This property is mostly open field, and gets lots of sun. It’s cold in the winter, but rarely gets snow at this altitude. It can get very hot in the summer. Surrounded by small estates, farms and family homes. Close to town, yet boasts a quiet country setting. Interested in Industrial Hemp? Industrial Hemp is legal now, per the new Farm Bill. The zoning (“Suburban Reserve”) allows for a number of possibilities. We are open to all ideas: livestock (chickens, horses, etc.), vegetable gardening, fruit trees, stables, kennels, winery, egg farm, and more. The county zoning can be found here: https://www.lakecountyca.gov/Assets/Departments/CDD/ZoningOrd/Zoning+Article+9.pdf . We are not considered a “fire zone”, nor are we in a “flood zone.” The residential units (two manufactured homes), garage, and water tank are not yet installed on the property, as it is pending loan approval, PGE engineering, and construction. We are open to a lease, parcel split, or purchase. Lake County is ranked among the best areas in the nation for its air quality (per the annual Lung Association survey). The county features over 35 wineries and offers world-renowned fishing at one of the oldest lakes on the planet. A birder’s paradise, and popular hiking destination.
