Congratulations to Sandra Jo Stevenson of United Country Stevenson Realty & Auction Services for her sale on January 18, 2018, of 3342-acre West Valley Ranch in California’s Modoc County. The sale of this working cattle ranch in Northern California was the largest land sale in the previous seven days based on data recorded through the Lands of America Comparable Sales program.
West Valley Ranch consists of 3,342 acres spanning the Modoc and Lassen county lines and the ranch is enrolled in the Williamson Act. The homestead hosts various outbuildings and includes the old fixer-upper home. Power is provided by a generating system, sewage disposal is private septic system, and potable water is from a domestic well. Situated in northeastern California at the base of the Warner Mountains, elevation here ranges from 4,800 feet to over 5,500 feet. The ranch is mostly surrounded by BLM and National Forest Service lands.
Tucked in the northeasternmost corner of the Golden State, 3,918-square-mile Modoc County offers a mix of high-desert terrain and rangeland among alpine meadows, lakes and peaks that form part of the Cascade-Shasta range. The local economy is supported by agricultural and ranching interests along with income from tourism and outdoor recreation opportunities throughout the area.
