Detailed Description:

With 355.86 gorgeous acres situated at the edge of the Sierra Valley and surrounding mountains, Smithneck Ranch is a rare offering for those with a love of the land and unimproved nature at its best! Suitable for agriculture and/or simply a beautiful home and/or retreat. The lay of the land, with its privacy and adjacent ag lands, offers a natural legacy for generations to come.

Smithneck Ranch consists of 195.86 acres zoned Agriculture/General Forest. The remaining 160 acres are zoned TPZ (Timber Production Zone. Smithneck Creek flows through with 1st and 3rd Riparian water rights for irrigation. All mineral rights are included as well. About 50+/- acres supported alfalfa production in the past. Currently, a local cattle rancher has a grazing lease (ending 12/31/2023) supporting 30+/- pair for the season. Year-round Smithneck Creek also feeds a couple of duck ponds before continuing downstream. One can only imagine the expansive meadows, natural springs, pine forests, and the abundant wildlife they support!

Bordering USFS lands, opportunities for outdoor recreational activities abound! i.e., hunting, fishing, hiking, camping, equestrian, etc. Less than an hour away are Reno, Tahoe/Truckee, Graeagle, the Lakes Basin, Frenchman's Lake, and Lake Davis....all of which offer their own amenities to add to the list.
