LOCATION: The property is located at 3995-A West Butte Road in the historical old town of West Butte located in Sutter County, California. From the town of Sutter, California access Pass Road and travel west seven (7) miles to the property.

From the town of Meridian, California travel east on State Hwy 20 five (5) miles to West Butte Road, then north on West Butte Road four (4) miles to the property.

There are two private entry-ways to access the property. The west gate entrance from West Butte Road (3995-A mailbox) and the north gate entrance from the Pass Road.

PROPERTY DESCRIPTION: Sutter County assessor parcel number 013-070-078-000 containing 85 acres, m/l.

SOIL: Good, moderately deep and well drained Palis-Stohlman stony sandy loam. Typical Sutter Butte foothill soil, identified as (156) on the Soil Survey of Sutter County. The northern portion of the ranch is class 1 Olashes sandy loam and is described as (150) on the Soil Survey of Sutter County and is excellent deep orchard soil. This is the same soil that the walnut orchard is planted on across the street (on the north side of the Pass Road) and the west side of the West Butte Road.

INCOME INVESTMENT POTENTIAL: A good portion of this farm land could be easily developed and converted into an excellent productive walnut or almond orchard as the neighboring landowners have proven.

WATER: This property has excellent quality water supplied from a 396 deep well that is powered by Pacific Gas and Electricity (PG&E) that produces 75 gallons of water per minute.

CUSTOM HOME AND RESORT: There is a beautiful 4 bedroom, 3 full bathrooms, 2+ garage capacity, 2,700 sq. ft. custom-built mountain retreat built in 1999 located on the top elevation of the ranch with spectacular 360-degree views of the Butte Sink to the west, and the fabulous Sutter Buttes to the north, and the snow-capped Sierras to the East.

CUSTOM HOME AND RESORT/HUNTING LODGE: When you step inside you will find that the large living area (great room) is open to the kitchen and dining area and is perfect for entertaining and hosting. There is a nice sized room on the ground floor that is currently used as a den but would make an additional guest bedroom as well. The pine wood floors, custom paint, designer fixtures showcase the rustic style and the stunning handmade staircase custom built for the owner in Boulder, Colorado and is a piece of art all in itself. The fireplace is equally as eye catching as it jets up the 23-foot high ceiling in the great room. Upstairs the large master suite has a sitting area, enormous walk-in closet, dual vanities and a garden tub. Included in the 2,700 sq. ft. custom home is a newly constructed 530 sq. ft. guest home and includes two additional bedrooms, bathrooms and living quarters. The garage features two car parking as well as a large storage room that is dedicated to a gym and training room. There is also a fully equipped enclosed workshop with built in workbench.

RECREATION UNLIMITED: This property overlooks the world famous Butte Sink which is one of the most exclusive waterfowl hunting areas in the State of California. This is an area long recognized by avid waterfowlers, and the Federal and State wildlife agencies as a critical wintering area for waterfowl as they make their way down the Pacific Flyway during their annual migration cycle. This property could also be developed into a very successful duck factory by planting the acreage into waterfowl nesting cover and constructing additional brood ponds. Incidentally this would enhance the dove, quail, wild turkey and deer population that already abundantly live in this area. According to the owner, you can get your limit of ducks trying to land in the ranch brood pond on foggy days.


From the town of Sutter, California access Pass Road and travel west seven (7) miles to the property.
