Property Description

Ever dream of escaping the stressors of the big city? Would you and your family enjoy the pure, fresh air of the woods and wilderness?

Located in the northeast corner of California, neighboring southern Oregon and northern Nevada, the California Pines community in Modoc County is your perfect oasis. There are beautiful mountain views, hot springs, a national forest, waterfalls, wildlife and much more, all presiding in a tight-knit community of fewer than 10,000 people. Alturas, the county capital, once marked the gateway to California for many a wagon train seeking gold and still embodies the pioneer spirit of those times. 

With views of Mt. Shasta to the west and Mt. Lassen to the south, the scenery is just green and gorgeous. The question for you becomes, what do you want to do? You can camp, hike, fish, hunt, mountain bike, ride horses, go offroading and so on. The possibilities are endless, but they’re all sure to be fun!

I recommend watching this 7-minute video to learn more about the area, fuel your imagination for new things to do and see what “it’s like being back in the frontier.” Where the west still lives, indeed. 

About Modoc County:

Modoc is a charming Northern California community, with plenty of wildlife and a scenic landscape. Build your dream vacation home as a quick weekend getaway from San Francisco, Sacramento, or Oregon.

Modoc National Forest makes for an ideal hiking location, and the South Warner Wilderness provides an opportune setting for hunting, fishing, and horseback riding.

Comparable Properties

We’re confident that you won’t find a better value than our properties. (But if you do, please contact us, and we’ll see what we can do!)

We encourage you to conduct your own due diligence, but here are some examples of what we mean:

  • Craigslist: Similar lots are selling for $3,500-4,500
  • LandWatch: Expect to pay at least $4,000 if purchasing from LandWatch! 
  • Zillow: Only two of 13 reported sales in Modoc County have sold for less than $26,800 ($1,500 and $3,700) and both of those properties were less than 1.1 acres

Why are we able to offer such low prices? In short, we buy our properties in bulk directly from owners, enabling us to buy them at well-below market prices and, most importantly, pass those savings directly to you, our valued customers.
