Historically, this area was platted up into 5 acre parcels after WW II and given free to returning vets as long as they built a 400 square foot or larger cabin on the property. This parcel for sale here does not have one of these cabins but many in the area do and they are being bought up and renovated into fashionable homes. Following the vets in the 60’s, many musicians came to this area to be free and many classics from that era were composed here. This area has consistently been a draw for adventurous, creative types – like you maybe!


Property Details

This  5 acre parcel is just north of the community of Joshua Tree.  The desert landscape is mostly comprised of rocky hills and desert. At night the stars are breathtaking and not a sound to be heard except nature. This is Joshua Tree.

The roads are paved until just before the property and then you will need a 4WD vehicle. There is electricity nearby but any other utilities would have to be confirmed. The property has not yet been surveyed.  The legal description is the best definition of the property but a survey would be needed to confirm the boundaries.

Also, it is surrounded by Joshua Tree Resource Conservation, JT/RC land (Bunker Mtn.) to the north, south and west as you can see in the zoning map further below on this page. This guarantees at least three sides of the property will remain open and natural.

Joshua Tree 6

Attention preppers. If you want seclusion this could be it. Or maybe a spot away from it all for your RV or ATV’s. Or maybe an isolated parcel in the surrounding Mojave desert for your new home. Or maybe you just want to invest and take advantage of the coming price increases.

Whatever the reason, this is a large parcel of California land close to Joshua Tree National Park and the community of Joshua Tree and the price is right so act now!

Joshua Tree 5

This is a really nice parcel if this is what you are looking for. At an elevation of about 2600′ vs. the surrounding desert at around 2400′, the property is really isolated by the surrounding hills and private land on 3 sides. This is the place to get away from it all but yet be so close to civilization.

Don’t miss it.

Please call or email to buy or with any questions (see SELLER INFORMATION above right-hand column).
