This 1.208 acre corner lot is heavily treed and situated just below the crest of a hill in the California Pines subdivision near Alturas, CA.
From this location, Hermit Butte is only 1.4 miles away, as a bird flies. Hermit Butte, elevation of 6,493 ft, is a summit of the Great Basin Mountain Range and located within the Modoc National Forest.
This lot has excellent year round access. The primary access road through the subdivision is California Pines Blvd, which is paved and a short 0.38 miles north of the property. The property has 580 feet of road frontage on Buckboard Rd and Wyatt Rd, which are well established dirt roads.
California Pines Blvd is maintained by Modoc County but the roads within the subdivision, like Buckboard Rd and Wyatt Rd, are maintained by the California Pines Property Owners Association (POA). The association dues are $95 per parcel per year.
This lot is zoned for residential use. Single-family and manufactured homes are permitted. Prior to obtaining a building permit, the county requires that a source of potable water be established, which would mean a well. A septic system is also required prior to building.
This area is buildable. You may have noticed in the pictures and video posted on this page that a nearby property owner (approximately 225 ft northeast) is in the middle of developing his or her lot. The build site is separated from this property by a stand of tall pine trees.
Though not required, property owners have access to mains electric in the subdivision. There are power poles near the property located on California Pines Blvd.
Not ready to build? That’s OK! The land may also be used recreationally. The county allows for camping and RV use for up to 30 days a time, and up to 90 days a year. County zoning does not allow for residing on the land full time in an RV or tiny home, unless you have a building permit.
The county also permits growing cannabis for recreational or medicinal use after you build a home. The limit is six plants per parcel with a home on it.
