Escape the hustle and bustle of modern life and claim your own Southern Nevada sanctuary on the 120-acre Weber Ranch. With Clover Creek meandering beneath the towering Cottonwood trees year round, it's easy to forget you are in the middle of the desert.
Water rights from the creek and a well, totaling 140 acre-feet, provide ample irrigation for pasture or crops. The ag well is 105 feet deep, with an output of 500 gpm. Approximately 40 acres are planted in Wrangler Bermuda grass for sheep pasture. Flood irrigation is simple and effective, with borders to direct the water flowing from 12-inch pipes and strategically placed valves. There are over 100 mature pecan trees, as well as a few pomegranate trees, throughout the property. The pond is just over a half acre and is home to bass, bullhead catfish, bluegills, ducks, and geese.
Electricity for two 30' x 100' greenhouses and one home is provided by trailer-mounted solar panels with battery packs. Diesel-powered generators are in place for backup if needed.
There are two modest dwellings on the property. The main home has 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms and is approximately 1,832 sf. The bunkhouse has a combined living/sleeping area and 1 bathroom. Both are served by the domestic well. Renovate one or both of these or start from scratch and build your dream home here.
The beautiful Weber Ranch offers opportunities for several possible ventures--a small livestock or equestrian setup, self-sustaining homestead, recreational / hunting base camp, or retreat and special event venue. With the spacious greenhouses, you can grow all your own fresh produce with a surplus to sell. Being adjacent to public lands and within 50 miles of 6 state parks and 17 wilderness areas offers a plethora of activities to suit any outdoor enthusiast. The property is in Game Management Unit 242, and desert bighorn sheep, mule deer, quail, and doves are common in the area.
The quaint railroad town of Caliente, 42 miles to the north, offers basic services--fuel, a grocery store, a clinic and hospital, and a few cafes. The ranch is accessed by traveling south from Caliente on Highway 317 through the stunning Rainbow Canyon. This route is 20 miles of pavement, then 22 miles of gravel road. One can also turn north off Interstate 15 at Exit 100 (Carp / Elgin) between Mesquite and the Moapa Valley--this option is 42 miles of gravel road. Las Vegas is approximately 100 miles southwest.
