The Sierra Nevada foothills are dotted with beautiful farms, but, in Nevada County, it is very difficult to find FLAT acreage. After all, we are the hill country and rolling is “flat” to us. This amazing parcel breaks that mold. There is quite literally ten full FLAT acres of beautiful land. You can jump on a riding lawn mower and just have a grand time without worrying about falling down the hill. There is also a house on it! You can raise kids, cattle, or just farm. The neighbor has a vineyard, so I am assuming that works well, but just having this lovely land as your center piece might be just enough.
Farming is hard work. It can be daunting no matter what you are growing, but at my latest listing in Penn Valley there is a combination of lovely that works for many farm approaches. First, we have water on Brindle Pony. There is a sizable (20 gpm) well for home use, a pond for holding water and playing in, and there is piped underground water from the NID ditch nearby. So all three resources are available for the owner of this property.
Located at the end of a short road shared by less than ten neighbors, it is a quick five minutes to Highway 20. This takes you West to Marysville, Yuba City and Chico, or East up to Grass Valley.
The elevation is prime! Located at 1300 feet, it is above the valley fog, and below the snow (usually around 2500 feet). I am told this parcel is in direct shot of the cooling delta breezes. When they cool off the valley they somehow come to Penn Valley as well. This Spring was gorgeous in Penn Valley, with lots of late rains leading to lots of green pastureland. This isn’t always the case, but for now, it is picture perfect.
Oh and there is a HOUSE too! Located in the near center of the square parcel, the house was custom built by the seller’s dad. It is a three bedroom, single level, split floor plan with master on one end and additional bedrooms on the other. There is a WIDE open living plan with a nice office off the entry and kitchen that could be converted to dining room, but works great as an office.
There’s just too much to tell you about this property, but it is totally fenced with gates, so if you have cattle or kids it could work out for you. It is quite ready to show. New paint, flooring, and kitchen updates, it is move in ready!
