12+/- acres for sale in the beautiful foothills of the Sierra Nevada Mountains, less than 3 miles outside the cool village of Murphys, CA
Murphys has been labeled "The Next Napa" and "Carmel of the Sierra."
Own property just minutes from Ironstone Vineyards, home to Ironstone Amphitheatre where the Summer 2018 concert season (see http://ironstoneamphitheatre.net/wired/artists/) featured Toby Keith, Little Big Town, Counting Crows, The Isley Brothers, The Family Stone, Willie Nelson, Allison Krauss, Foreigner, Creedence Clearwater, America, The B52s, Stone Temple Pilots, The Cult, Bush, and who knows who else!?
This ~12 acre parcel is in a neighborhood called "Murphys Pines," made up of large lots with homes spread out over the hills. This was once prime mining and prospecting land and now features great views. This wonderful huge double lot is now available for sale for $129,900.
This property is unique in Murphys Pines in that it is not subject to use interference like gullies, road traffic, or dust. Plus, electrical service is located ~300' south of the property line across Darby Lane. However, it's perfect for off-grid solar and wind power.
Located at over 2,300' in elevation, this property's engineered building pad is in place. It has a Cal-Fire friendly gated driveway and a 600' deep well is in place to supply cold, clear, clean mountain water to the 3,000 gallon water tank situated 110' above the building site for municipal-level water pressure. All you need are building plans. And, there is the mountaintop!
Take an aerial look at 5279 El Camino Casale now. The adjacent 5+ acre mountaintop parcel to the west is 5383 El Camino Casale, for a total of almost 12 acres wrapping 180° around the mountain top. See the image of the two lots together at the bottom of this page. This would make for an incredible large property for just $129,900.
The night sky is unbelievable. Watch countless satellites and falling stars.
Please note that the road to the mountaintop property does not have any deeded or prescriptive easements to the top. Thus, in order to legally access the mountaintop without trespassing on Parcel 9 you must have the permission of the owner of Parcel 9 under California Civil Code Section 1008. In other words, you must have permission to walk up that road to see the top. And, if purchasing Parcel 8 you will have to also purchase Parcel 9, since the deeded easement shown on the MAPS page is straight and too steep for any driveway permitting, even paved. 12
