Sheep Ranch, California

$1,175,000 | 161 ± Acres | Calaveras County

Claim your slice of Heaven on Earth at this private 160+ acre forest preserve in Sheep Ranch, Calaveras County.   Toward the end of a private road, the home site is a several acre park like setting with open fields, shaded patios, a high-fenced vegetable garden, and spectacular views of the surrounding mountains.  The two lower parcels are in a conservation easement, creating a permanant nature preserve as well as a buffer between you and your neighbors.  The property is framed on one side by Basella Creek, and the year round O'neil Creek runs through the southeast corner.  The house is a 4,000 square foot custom log cabin luxury home, with wrap-around covered porches affording views of the surrounding nature.  The property has incredible off-the-grid infrastructure, including an 8 KW solar system, stand-by battery bank, and emergency generator in its own weatherproof enclosure - meaning you have complete independence from the utility grid, yet you are not lacking any comforts of a high-end residence.  During the winter months, you will appreciate the radiant floor heating and wood burning fireplace, and during the summer months the whole-house fan and afternoon delta breezes will cool you down.  There is an abundance of water on the property, including a 75 GPM well, two 5,000 gallon storage tanks, a 1,500 gallon and a 1, 000 gallon storage tank, providing more than enough water for both your domestic and irrigation water needs.  The 40' x 80' metal barn building has an office, a 960 square foot loft, and provides enough storage space for all of your toys and the equipment you'll need to maintain this first class property.
