Greenwood Ridge Homestead 28 Acres

This 28 acre property is a great homestead property. Some of the very nice features it has are lots of gentle useable land, potential for great distant views of the mountains and valley down toward the Navarro end, beautiful redwood trees, a variety of other trees and a couple of small meadows. This property is high on the ridge, elevation around 1500 feet, and is adjacent to the very well recognized Greenwood Ridge Vineyards. It is off of the county road, about a mile and a half, and enjoys access to power and phone. The access road is gentle, wide and very well maintained. Greenwood Ridge is known for its desirable micro climate. Ample rainfall and a cooling influence from the coast but out of the coastal fog. Winter and spring inversions reduce the number of frosts as well. The topography on the land ranges from gentle to very moderate.

There are several roads within the property and there is potential to make many hiking trails within the property as well. The meadows are small maybe a half acre or so, but there is potential to clear trees to make a wonderful ridge top homestead. Hardwood trees can be removed without permit to open up much of the property if desired. In addition there is provision in the regulations to clear up to 3 acres of ground for a homestead, known as a homestead exemption. The zoning is PT, or TPZ, which means Timber Production Zoning, and it allows two full homes and a guest house. A guest house is limited to around 800 sq. ft. and cannot have a kitchen. Additionally, outbuildings are allowed as well. The TPZ zoning has the advantage of providing very low property taxes for the land. As you make improvements they are taxed as any other property.

This is one of the quietest homestead properties we have had on the market in some time, well away from the county road and the busyness of life, it is a place of solitude and enjoyment of nature. Wildlife is abundant, and it is a great wild mushroom habitat. Room for gardens, some domestic animals, or even a hobby vineyard. Bring your dreams and plans and make this property your future Country Homestead. A Beautiful Place!
