There is nothing the least bit contrived about this place. Lone Pine Ranch is the land legacy of stock market titan, Dean Witter. “Authentic” is the most fitting single word description of this historic landholding spanning across Trinity and Mendocino counties in Northern California. Comprised of three large ranches purchased by Mr. Witter starting in 1942, this ranch is gargantuan in size and nonpareil in natural beauty. With over 26,600 deeded acres all in one contiguous block, it is supported by viable cattle and timber operations. The ranch is conservatively estimated to have a carrying capacity of over 800 cows and approximately 30% of the ranch is a tenderly managed timber resource. There are over 16.5 miles of frontage on Northern California's Eel River, which covets National Wild and Scenic designation. Salmon and steelhead still migrate into these waters from the Pacific Ocean, and resident wildlife includes plentiful populations of elk, blacktail deer, pig, bear and quail. The old-time improvements convey the sense of a living museum. The main home, built in the 1930s, overlooks the Eel River canyon from a vantage point that still looks today much like it did when Mr. Witter made the decision to build here. The creak of the screen doors is an auditory time machine that journeys back to the innocent joys of childhood.Save Property Download Brochure
