This is a real western ranch in a great western Sierra Mountain setting surrounded by thousands of acres of Sequoia National Forest yet only six miles from the shopping center in Lake Isabella. The ranch is also just north of the historic gold mining town known as Havilah, Ca. Havilah, in its hay day, was the first county seat of Kern County and quite a rip-roaring town. The main ranch headquarters, which has a 1950's ranch house, a couple of tool sheds and the original stone and mud small settlers house, sits in a beautiful valley at 3000 foot elevation where Clear Creek and Cedar Creek meet and flow thru the ranch. The ranch flows up from the valley thru meadows, trees and hills to over 4000 foot offering a very stunning, unique and diverse setting. You can follow the Clear Creek Pack Trail from the ranch thru the national forest to 8000 feet and above. The whole area with Lake Isabella, the Kern River and millions of acres of National Forest is a fishing, hunting, hiking, horse-mans paradise. It just does not get any better then this and you can be back in L. A. in two and one half hours.
The ranch is in 4 legal parcels and is now a working cattle ranch with additional 7,200 acres, contiguous BLM and Forest service land under lease. There is room for an airstrip on the ranch but you have the Kern Valley Airport with-in thirty minutes next to the lake. This ranch would be a great for vinyards, orchards also solar and wind farms. Water is a very precious asset in these areas. A preliminary water study showed the ranch recieveing water from four main watersheds and the calculated net storage volume to be approx 215,000 acre-feet... An acre foot of water is approx 326,000 gallons, so thats an immense amount of water storage...You can find water from thirty feet down...
