Property Description
One of the finest properties in Alpine because of its beauty and location near town while offering complete privacy. The property is sandwiched between the Bush Valley and Escudilla Mountain, lies at 8,000 feet elevation and includes 85 deeded acres. With tremendous views overlooking the Bush Valley, San Francisco River and surrounding mountain tops the property backs up to national forest and includes paved access from US Highway 180. The property lies in two contiguous parcels with the entire north boundary being along the national forest. The front parcel includes approximately 45 acres and over a quarter mile of paved frontage along the highway. The 45 acres is roughly rectangular in shape with the western boundary coming to a point along the highway. Topography is generally sloping from north to south towards the highway with an open meadow located on the eastern edge. This area includes an earthen tank designed to catch run-off for livestock water. There is also a small spring near the center of the property which provides a small area of sub-irrigated meadow. The second parcel includes 40 acres and is located to the northeast of the first parcel and is connected by a property corner and road easement. The 40 acres is square in shape and is surrounded by national forest on the west, north and east boundaries. Topography on the 40 acres includes hillside dropping off to an open meadow reaching through the center of the property. Both parcels include some open meadow but have large stands of ponderosa pine and live oak trees. The extensive tree cover provides privacy and numerous building sites. The trees have been thinned and managed for wildfire protection within the past five years. Vegetation consists of ponderosa pine forest and alpine meadow grasses.

Alpine is an authentic small western mountain town, a quiet getaway with spectacular scenery with easy driving distance to many fishing lakes and streams.  Luna Lake is a short two mile drive.  The area is also located on the boundary between the famous hunting Units 1 & 27 known for large herds of elk and world-class 400+ point bulls.  With the large ponderosa pine and beautiful oak trees scattering the property and the magnificent views of Escudilla Mountain, Bush Valley and the San Francisco River, this property has great potential for a private, secluded home-site in the pines or possibly development into smaller tracts.  The two parcels could be sold separately, all offers will be considered.
