Wanted: Good neighbors!

This beautiful property (note: the map on this website is incorrect) in the Orland area has come up for sale. Two homes – count ’em, two! – on fourteen irrigated acres. Located on a quiet country road with minimal traffic. Just 5 minutes outside the city of Orland and its grocery, hardware, and feed stores. Just 25 minutes to Chico, the University, and the Latin Mass on Sundays. Traditional Catholic homeschooling family right next door. Lots of room for kids to romp outdoors. Milk your own cows or goats, raise your own meat, and grow your own fruits and vegetables. Enjoy California weather in a midwestern-like rural setting. Put down roots in an old-fashioned, settled community that remains one of California’s best-kept secrets!

  1. $400,000 for 14 acres. Taking out $100,000 for the house(es), that’s $20,000/acre. I’ll wait till the California real estate market finishes crashing, thanks.


  2. A Simple Sinner: I appreciate the sentiment and will let you know when my credit improves. :-)

    Danby: That’s our loss, but I understand. The Golden State’s perks do come with a price. That same property would have been around $550K just two years ago.


  3. Hey, this is a deal for California. You’d be living somewhere nice, not Bakersfield or some central valley nowhereland (sorry if any readers live in Bakersfield or the central valley…)

    Land in the Napa/Sonoma counties is still going for 50-100 k per acre (they’re assuming you’ll grow grapes on it). And homes in (certain) bay area parts are not budging much in price (Napa valley, again, as example). If we weren’t tied here with family roots, jobs and our own mondo mortgage, I’d consider it…..


  4. Dale: If I could sign for all of you, I would do it in a heartbeat!

    Benedicamus: Yes it is a deal for California, no question about it. But in the interest of full disclosure, Orland is not that different from southern part of the central valley, and some would say that, even compared to Bakersfield, it looks a lot like “nowhereland” up here! Although we did have gang-related homicide on Monday – the first in 10 years – so we’re slowly catching up with the rest of the state. :-/
