Ever wanted a big piece of desert land where you could do pretty much whatever you wanted to - from hitting golf balls to skeet shooting to hosting your own baby Burning Man? Or do you just want a chance to social distance as far away from everyone else as possible? Or maybe just have the chance to do some world class star gazing at night?
Whatever your goal, here's your chance. 85 acres a few miles east of the recovering ghost town of Amboy, CA, it's one of the handful of privately owned lots in the middle of the Mojave Trails National Monument. 3.7 MILLION square feet of space to call your own. The property is flat and zoned RC, which allows for one residence per 40 acres. Check with the County of San Bernardino to verify any potential uses.
It's got about 650 ft of frontage on Rt. 66, and the lot is basically a mile deep, so there's plenty of room for activities. (The deed includes an easement to the State of California allowing for the construction of Route 66, so you'll literally be owning a piece of the Mother Road.)
It's just west of the famous guardian lions of Route 66. (That 171+ acre property is also being offered for sale, MLS# WS20036466.)
Once the Route 66 bridges by Essex are repaired in the next couple of years, this property may become even more valuable.
