Roger Riley Ranch

Pittsburg, California

$6,999,000 | 502 ± Acres | Contra Costa County

An ode to a time long ago when cattle outnumbered people on the wide-open California East Bay rangelands, the 502 ± acre Roger Riley Ranch, five minutes south of Pittsburg, CA, remains one of the last cattle ranches in Contra Costa County.

Passing through the secure gate to the ranch, immediately transports you away from the hustle and bustle of California’s East Bay cities. The homestead consists of a 2,037 sq. foot home with an attached two-car garage and private well. Outbuildings include a 2,550 sq. ft. horse barn, 1,008 sq. ft. storage barn with concrete floors, and an additional detached two-car garage. The property also features a radio tower operated by the Coast Guard, situated at its highest elevation.

Seasonal creeks and pond, coupled with a developed natural spring with a gravity-fed holding tank, provide ample year-round supply of one of California’s most precious commodities, water, for grazing livestock and property landscaping. Two undeveloped springs exist on the property as well. There is a cattle lease in place on the property, presenting an additional income-generating opportunity for the new owner.

With an average of 265 sunny days per year, you’ll have an abundance of opportunities to experience the great outdoors. Savor the picturesque views of the Delta, Black Diamond Mines Regional Preserve, and Mt. Diablo while horseback riding, atv’ing, biking, hiking, or going on a casual picnic. Being flanked on the west, north, and eastern fronts by the East Bay Parks District, the ranch has additional recreational opportunities nearby, but most importantly, the lasting peace and quiet of protected open space.

You’ll be hard pressed to find a serene ranch property of this magnitude and uniqueness so easily accessible to many cities in California’s East Bay and San Francisco. Seize the rare opportunity to create your own legacy in a place of unparalleled beauty and convenience.
