First offering in 50 years: Lubken Ranch is a 759 acre paradise at the foot of Mount Whitney with priceless water rights the L.A. Department of Water and Power never managed to acquire (remember the movie Chinatown?).Sited within what architect Richard Neutra proclaimed to be the greatest expanse of free open space he’d witnessed since the Gobi Desert, Lubken Ranch is today a working cattle ranch with rich possibilities for future creative development (Western Sagaponac?). Satellite views show the ranch to be an oasis of green within the vast panoramic landscape. With uncounted miles of surrounding land owned by the BLM and DWP, the feeling on the land is as if you own your own National Park. Improvements include water systems, corrals, a 4 bedroom 3 bath ranch house, outbuildings, and the old Pheasant Hunting Clubhouse now converted to living quarters. The ranch is an easy 3 hour drive from Los Angeles. There is a 60′ wide 4,000 foot airport runway at an elevation of 3,680 feet just 5 minutes from Lubken Ranch. Reduced from a local broker’s price of over $20 million dollars, the Ranch now represents a unique and viable investment opportunity in land, water, and scenic beauty.
