  • The 20.6 acre (Assessor) Sacramento riverfront property provides a beautiful and serene location; substantial income from an 18.6 acre +/- productive Chandler walnut orchard and rented 1,144 sq.ft 3-bedroom, 2 bath second home with detached 2-car garage; a well-maintained contemporary-styled 4 bedroom, 2.75 bath 3,176 sq.ft. main home and 3-car garage with salt-water pool and patio area; a 30 x 40 ft. enclosed barn/garage; and other outbuildings.
  • The orchard slopes gently from the home site down towards the Sacramento River and is micro-sprinkler irrigated from an approximate 275 gpm ag well in 4 irrigation zones. There is also second ag well of approximately 125 gpm that is not currently being used. A third domestic well provides approximately 60 gpm to the two homes. The orchard is approximately 20 years old and in excellent condition. Several very large heritage Valley Oaks have been preserved within the orchard and add significantly to its beauty and charm. There are also a couple of acres of native riparian habitat along the river.
  • The main home is 3,176 sq.ft. with a large master bedroom suite and two smaller bedrooms and 2.75 baths downstairs, and a fourth bedroom upstairs adjacent to the second story loft living room featuring expansive views of Mt. Lassen and the foothills to the East. The contemporary design includes many built-ins; a great-room concept living room with cathedral ceiling and wood stove; a modern eat-in kitchen dining area and breakfast bar; and a mud room/laundry area off the 3-car attached garage. The solar system provides power to the home, pool, hot tub, barn, and electric car charging station.
  • The relaxing back yard includes a paver-brick patio area; shady gazebo with fountain; a salt-water pool with diving board, electrically-retractible cover and cool-deck; and a 6-person hot tub with cover.
  • The property is convenient to excellent schools, and approximately 10 minutes from the 14,000 population city and County Seat of Red Bluff with its famous Roundup Rodeo and annual Bull and Gelding Sale, farmers' markets, and various arts and cultural events. It is also approximately 2 miles from a 17,000-acre recreational area managed by BLM that offers a variety of activities such as hunting, fishing, hiking, horseback riding, biking, swimming, kayaking, and picnicking.
  • The sellers will consider some seller financing with an acceptable offer from qualified buyers. Some furniture and ranch equipment may also be available outside of escrow, as the owners prepare to retire and move out of state.
