Travel back in time to experience the romance, excitement and nostalgia of California’s Gold Rush era. Nestled within the Sequoia National Forest and surrounded by 7,000-ft high snow-capped mountain peaks, this 199+ acre property occupies a secluded valley with an elevation of 6,000 feet.
Enter the private gates of the Lonesome Ranch in the majestic Piute Mountains and enjoy simple living and wide open spaces, all with the modern amenities of today. This rare opportunity includes 17-parcels of land, with 9 historical cabins from the late 1800’s, 4 of which have been restored for daily use. The modernized and upgraded main cabin is the primary living quarters. It includes a wood burning-cobble stone fireplace, a well-appointed kitchen with stainless steel Viking Stove, dining hall, hand built spiral staircase leading to a cozy master bedroom, internet wifi, along with a private helipad and enough room inside the cabin for helicopter storage during snowy weather.
Lonesome Ranch also features 6 abandoned gold mines, and once hosted over 4,000 gold miners. Over 2 miles of telephone-pole fencing surrounds this nearly 200 acre ranch. Live “off the grid” as water and power are plentiful through multiple solar panels, propane tanks, back-up generators, along with multiple streams, 4 water wells, and a beautiful 4-acre pond.
The Piute Indians also came here throughout history to avoid the summertime desert heat (there are large rocks with grinding circles, where the Squaws ground their meal). The Lonesome Ranch is a truly unique find and a nostalgic piece of frontier Americana. Just a 3 hour drive (or 45 minute helicopter ride) from the hustle and bustle of Downtown Los Angeles.
