“Real estate cannot be lost or stolen, nor can it be carried away. Purchased with common sense, paid for in full, and managed with reasonable care, it is about the safest investment in the world.” – Franklin D. Roosevelt, U.S. president
This property is located 15 minutes from the town of California City and 1 hour to the Angeles National Forest. It is approximately 25 minutes to the southern end of the Sierra Nevada and 1 hour and 15 minutes to Bakersfield.
The property has access via a dirt road, Yucaipa St.
The lot is not too far from the Angeles National Forest. According to the United States Forest Service, “The Angeles National Forest is a unique area nestled in the midst of an ever-changing and growing population in the Los Angeles area. The Forest is one of the few remaining open space areas in Southern California. The forest is an important part of the overall health and well being of the area population. It provides open space, solitude from the everyday stress of modern living, a place to conduct research, a haven for wildlife, and offers a wide variety of recreation opportunities.”
“Ninety percent of all millionaires become so through owning real estate. More money has been made in real estate than in all industrial investments combined. The wise young man or wage earner of today invests his money in real estate.” – Andrew Carnegie, billionaire industrialist
The lot is zoned PL (Platted Lands). Please note that this property should be bought for recreational purposes since it is our understanding that the lot is not buildable since the county does not consider Yucaipa Street a legal road.
