Description

THIS IS A ONE-OF-A-KIND DREAM PROPERTY!! So, grab your binoculars and come scope your kingdom!! The property brings with it some amazing history! One word: "FORD"... Yes, this was Harry Bennett's legendary "S-Star Ranch", given to him by the one and only Henry Ford in the 1940's! As local historian Ann Japenga notes in the article entitled, "Hatchetman: The Desert Exile of Harry Bennett"... "The long views in every direction would reveal a car's dust trail miles before anyone could reach him." As Ford's enforcer, Bennett felt safe here in splendid isolation. This property sits on a single parcel totaling 60 acres with an elevation of 1,300ft. The panoramic views are so incredible, you feel like you are on top of the world! It has the most breathtaking views of the SW - San Jacinto Mountain, and has a spectacular view of the NW - San Gorgonio Mountain. According to the Desert Sun, "the view of the Mt. San Jacinto from Bennett's hilltop perch is unrivaled." If you want to view a beautiful sunset, there is absolutely no better place in the entire valley! This compound comes w/ 14bd/12b and 3 other structures on the property w/ plenty of space for expansion or development. The main house is 7bd/7b with 4,217 SF, including an attached casita approx. 520 SF. The property comes with a hot mineral pool and spa. The 2-story Duplex is a side-by-side vertical with two 1bd/1b (1,272 sq ft each). The Guest House to the East is 3bd/2b w/1,200 sq ft, w/ its own fireplace. The Guest House to the West is 2bd/1.5b w/1,207 sq ft. Hot mineral water w/ well that provides 100+ degrees and 105+ gallons per hour. Making if perfect for a fantastic boutique hotel, Airbnb, or guest ranch. The ideas are endless! The property is adjacent to BLM land which means NO NEIGHBORS for forever! You can go horseback riding, hiking, biking, and/or ATV right from your front yard! Showings are by Appointment ONLY!!! Please do not disturb residents. Property currently has long term tenants and generates $13k a month.
