Seven adjoining parcels totaling 160 acres (4 at 10 ac ea, 3 at 40 ac ea). Zoned AG-5 (5 acre lot size minimum, allows house and various agricultural uses). Great parcels for building houses, for having your own ranch, for recreation, or simply for investment. You can potentially subdivide down to 5 acre lots without having to bring in any water rights. Property has access via existing roads: E Thomas Canyon Road or Lupine Drive. Very easy to reach. There are various private interior dirt roads on the property as well.
The land is flat around the north, west, and southwest parts of the perimeter, about on grade with a subdivision of existing homes adjacent directly to the north. This is the base of the Sonoma Mountain range, where the mountains come down to meet the valley floor. The parcel slopes steeply upward toward the east, to a large plateau on the farther east portions. The plateau has several relatively flat "fingers" which stretch out westward and northward, providing numerous potential building sites with unparalleled panoramic views across all of Grass Valley and to the city of Winnemucca. Unbelievably beautiful acreage and views, and rare to find such a large parcel right on the edge of town.
Electricity is present at the south and east property lines, and very near along the west and north property lines. Adjacent immediately on the north side of the property is a subdivision of existing single family residences. Well and septic are typical in this area, and not yet present on the subject property.
The property currently consists of seven separate Assessor's parcel numbers, 4 at 10 acres each and 3 at 40 acres each. Based on current zoning and preliminary discussions with the County, this property can potentially be split to 5 acre parcels based on current zoning. Therefore the potential is there for up to 32 individual 5 acre parcels. Seller's preliminary drawing for a potential subdivision layout is included with the sale, laid out in a way to work with the topography and provide at least one potential building site on each of the 32 parcels in the design.
Property is located 2 miles due south of the Winnemucca city limits, and about 4 miles south of downtown Winnemucca. Very close in location to town.
Winnemucca is located about 2 hours east of Reno along Interstate 80. Interstate 80 is one of America's most important roadways. The entire I-80 corridor through Nevada has awakened and is experiencing growth in recent years. Industry and jobs continue flocking to the area, there is huge potential here. Tax benefits are significant in Nevada and land costs are low, facts which are driving development and are expected to do so into the future. Winnemucca specifically is benefiting from an influx of mining and manufacturing jobs, which has created a housing shortage in recent years. It is an excellent time to invest in this area.
