It’s rare that such a property comes along for sale but particularly rare that it goes to auction. In tax-friendly Nevada and only 20 minutes from Lake Tahoe, this 34-acre boutique master-planned ranch has just about everything one could think of for creating an environment of pure pleasure. It is located at the foot of the Eastern Sierra Mountains and protected from further development with the mountains rising close behind the ranch making a dramatic visual statement.
Improvements on the land include the main gated entrance lined with 200 flowering pear trees, an award-winning eight-acre vineyard producing an annual 15 tons of grapes currently being sold to Tahoe Ridge Winery, acres of pristine fruit and nut orchards, a four-acre pasture, ten ponds with eight waterfalls, two year-round mountain creeks that produce 30,000 gallons of water an hour, the oldest stand of Aspen trees in Nevada along with Ponderosa, Jeffery Pines and Sequoia Redwood trees.
Nestled within this nature’s wonderland is the 3,100-square-foot main ranch house, guest house of hand-hewn logs that was featured in Log Home Design Ideas, a Jack Daniel’s-themed train depot, a fully restored 1923 Baltimore & Ohio caboose poker parlor and a firehouse complete with fully functioning 800-gallon 1962 fire truck. There is also a 5,000-square-foot automotive workshop, garage, and repair bay.
The Tuscan-inspired main house has three bedrooms, three bathrooms, a gym, a large terrace, and a three-car garage with workshop and storage. With plenty of room to expand, plans are available for a four-stall two-story barn. Also, there is an improved 1.5 acre home site ready to build one’s dream home. There are 8.2 acres zoned FR-19 for a future helipad and 25.59 acres zoned SFR-1 for adding other homes to the compound. For more information.
