In San Luis Obispo County, we've been blessed with well over normal rainfall this past two months. What this means is that the surrounding mountains look like the green hills of Ireland (and will for the next month or two), and that we are hatching a fantastic wildflower show. It will be especially beautiful in California Valley.
California Valley is a remote, serene, untouched area on our eastern border with Kern County, and home to the Carrizo Plains National Monument--the most recently created monument in the federal system. Whooping cranes migrate to Soda Lake, Tule elk inhabit the plains, and all manner of smaller critters live here as well.
The community of California Valley consists of about 500 hardy souls who live here for the solitude, silence, and serenity . . . and also because it's a great, inexpensive place to establish a farm or ranch. Weather here approximates "real" weather: hot summers, Indian-summer autumns, cold winters with a dusting of snow every so often, and enough rainfall to create a glorious cloud of wildflowers during the spring months. Starting in February and extending through April or early May, there is a succession of beautiful blooms of all kinds. Come for the day and spend the night camping out among the stars. With no light or air pollution, the skies are sparkling and you can count a million stars.
There are a number of vacant parcels available in California Valley, but there is nothing currently available that equals my full-fledged family farm, listed at $199,000. I've got tons of photos, lots of information, so give me a call! Best of all, the owners will carry with 20% down (only 10% cash) at a good interest rate for up to 20 years.
