NOTE: This property has been sold and is no longer available.
This rugged parcel with breathtaking, snow-capped, mountain views in every direction is located about 12 miles from Winnemucca, Humboldt county’s only incorporated city. South of the property is Humboldt River, which runs across Northern Nevada. You have farms to the East and North, so the soil seems to be fertile (good if you plan to live off the land).
A land survey was recorded in 2002, and corner marks are available. There is a dirt road leading right through the parcel, from the West boundary to the East. Some distance North East of the property you will also find small thermal sources with temperatures of about 120-130 °F (see pictures at the bottom).
The property does not have any utilities so this would be a perfect chance to go off-the-grid and live off the land, in an environmentally sustainable fashion! According to a licensed water well driller living in the general area, the estimated required depth to drill is at least 100 ft, but it is recommended that you go a little deeper than that.
(Note: Power is available not too far away if you are not hardcore enough to produce it yourself!)
Skip your utility bills and enjoy low taxes, no pollution, no traffic and no morning/afternoon subway jam.

Note to all the lone wolves out there: The property is very rural and hard to get to – even some of the locals are scared of traveling the roads during rainy weather, so do not expect many visitors! Definitely not suited for the faint of heart… But maybe the perfect fit for you?
