Located just sixteen miles south of Interstate 40 this slightly less than five acre lot is situated in the picturesque Valley Springs subdivision of Torrance County. While not as remote as some properties we offer (you can see from the photos you'll have neighbors) the bonus is that there are already power and phone lines in the area. Perfect for mobile, modular or tiny home builders one of the best things about this property is that it comes already fenced in! This means you not only won't have to hire a surveyor to tell you your exact boundaries, but won't need to install a fence to keep out the nearby cattle (and there are nearby cattle).
What Our Photographer Told Us: Road access is easily navigated most of the way but is best approached with a truck or other off road capable vehicle, particularly within the final three-tenths of a mile leading up to the property on Harrington Road. Cell service remained excellent throughout the entire scout of the property.
What Torrance Planning & Zoning Told Us: While it is possible to drill a well in this area they stated there's likely a high alkali content in the ground water and recommended it best to use a catchment or other alternative system. They also stated that if a catchment system is used the local Fire Department would likely require a minimum 1,500 gallon water tank. It is important to note, however, the East Torrance Soil & Water Conservation District (linked in the table below) offers help in the form of financial incentives for this type of system.
This slightly less than five acre lot is priced well below ALL OTHER comparable sized properties in the area. It will not last long.
