This 40-acre parcel is nestled amongst the mountains of the Rose Valley recreational area in the Los Padres National Forest. With exceptional mountain views, mostly usable land, and a beautiful, natural setting, this secluded retreat offers an ideal location for a private ranch or weekend getaway. Historically known as the Gore property and once home to the Mountain Sweet natural spring water company, this versatile property has been used for a family-owned bottled water operation, dry farming Sudan grass and barley for cattle feed, and growing organic snow peas, onions, garlic and other root vegetables to sell to local restaurants. Rose Valley offers a unique, simpler way of life for folks looking to get away from the city and enjoy a slower-paced lifestyle. Build your dream home, create an off-grid retreat or simply keep the property as is to enjoy rustic camping in the country with your family and friends.
