Fort Jones, CA
Silver Sage Ranch! This 300 acre, Siskiyou County ranch offers a spacious 5,771sf Spanish-influenced home, overlooking beautiful Scott Valley & the Marble Mountains. It is located in Northern California, just a few minutes outside the small, historic town of Fort Jones, which has a grocery store, bank, gas station, multiple restaurants and other amenities. It is roughly 20 minutes from the County seat of Yreka, CA.
The lovely 6 bed/4.5 bath home includes two stories, consisting of 3,850 sf, plus a 1,913 sf fully finished, daylight basement with private entrance. There is a 60x36’ steel horse barn, riding arena and multiple pastures fenced with barbless wire & hotlines. The ranch also includes a 600 sf A-frame guest or caretaker cabin, which comes fully furnished with charming vintage pieces. The main house and cabin both have beautiful Saltillo tile floors, and all appliances in both houses are included in the sale. The ranch is well suited to horses, cattle or other livestock, and there are great riding trails right on the property!
The living room in the main house features a large fireplace with wood storage, open vaulted ceiling and spiral staircase leading upstairs. The kitchen has ample storage, a walk-in pantry, built-in desk and large windows overlooking the yard. There are bedrooms on every level, several with their own fireplaces, bathrooms and cedar-lined closets. Upstairs, the “morning kitchen” is a delightful place for breakfast — it opens to a second story balcony so you can enjoy the spectacular view. There is also a large, sunny office on the second floor.
The basement features a wet bar and game room with pool table, which is included in the sale. There are two bedrooms, a full bathroom, multiple closets and two storage rooms on the basement level. The larger storage room could easily be converted to a gym or home theater. The basement level has its own private patio. The yard is fully enclosed with deer fencing to protect the landscaping. A large, nearly new deck extends the full length of the house, with access from the sunroom and kitchen sitting area. It gets morning sun and afternoon/evening shade, making it a perfect spot for outdoor grilling.
The large horse barn, built in 2006, has water and electricity, 6 stalls — each with its own paddock — and two tack rooms. The metal pole barn, constructed in 2007, stores approx. 30 tons of hay. A riding arena, enclosed with pipe corral panels, is set among shady oaks and tall pines a short distance from the barn — and the panels are included in the sale. The horse pastures cover large acreage and have water piped to them.
The property has two wells, one producing approx. 7-10 gpm and one with approx. 12-16 gpm. Water is piped through a gravity feed system, which includes 4,800 gallons of storage so that water continues to be available to the house, cabin, barn and horse pastures in event of a power outage. The homes are served by septic systems. Electricity is provided by Pacific Power. For “home office” workers, both DSL and wireless internet service are available.
The 300 acres covers varied terrain, with countless oaks and Ponderosa pines. This is an area that is locally well known for excellent blacktail deer hunting. In addition to deer, numerous other kinds of wildlife populate this part of Siskiyou County. There are plenty of places for horseback riding and hiking on the property, as well as many recreational opportunities within an hour’s drive of the ranch. The property is in the Williamson Act, with its property tax saving benefits. The property does have a few private restrictions designed to preserve the quiet nature of the area.
