great views of monterey bay. Highland Way is paved, and this is a flag lot, with entry via a graded, gated, shared, dirt road that begins at Highland. Stunningly located between Uvas Canyon County Park and The Forest of Nisene Marks, a State Park. This 40-acre parcel actually contains a forest, which the buyers might wish to name after themselves. Incredible rock formations. Significant increase in elevation from paved road; ample selection of building sites & helo-ports. A "mini-San Simeon. "The property has a graded, dirt, loop road which allows the entire parcel to be viewed. Buyers might wish to install their own zip lines within the forest that comes with the property.
Here’s an interesting property I came across last weekend. The real estate agent promotes this gated, vacant land property as a "mini-San Simeon" with "incredible rock formations" and a small forest which "the buyers might wish to name after themselves".
In reality, the 40-acre flag lot (APN 106-521-09) looks pretty barren and difficult to access,
Of course, no mention of this is found in the listing. Only positive possibilities are presented (e.g., ample sites for buildings/heliopad, zip-line tours through the forest, etc.), all for the asking price of $2.5 million.
And yet, he couldn’t put the most important thing about this property in the danged listing. If you’re selling land, then wouldn’t a buyer want to know how much land are you selling? I think that question is usually followed by where the fuck is it?
So why wouldn’t he put these really key pieces of info in the little fill-in-the-listing-form fields?
Look above. The listing info is all blank, and check out the name of the city, too! If you read through the really bizarre listing copy, there is a mention that it’s a 40 acre parcel in the Santa Cruz Mountains near some state park, but how many would-be buyers stopped reading when they got to the dirt road and flag lot?
And that’s too bad. Several of you may well want your own private zip line in the forest you might wish to name after yourself. Although if you expect this to be a mini-San Simeon, you’re going to need to import a herd of zebras. Oh yeah, and build a castle.
