This 5 acres sits in Johnson Valley in San Bernardino County. Johnson Valley is an unincorporated community between Lucerne Valley and Yucca Valley off Highway 247. The property sits 3.1 miles east of Highway 247 and 2,000 ft south of Bodick Rd.

The property has a patent for a jack-rabbit homestead that was deeded from the government to the past owner in 1966. 'Jackrabbit homesteads are only for folks who have a bit of pioneering blood in their veins. The land generally is rough, no water is immediately available, more or less road building has to be done. But fortunately there are many Americans who find infinite pleasure in doing the hard work necessary to provide living accommodations on one of these sites--and cabins are springing up all over the desert country.' (Desert Magazine, 1950)

The Small Tract Act of 1938 allowed federal land to be purchased by US Citizens if the applicant made the necessary improvements to his or her claim by constructing a small dwelling within three years of the lease, the applicant could file for a patent (the federal government's form of a deed) after purchasing the parcel for the appraised price (on average $10 to $20 an acre) at the regional land office.

This 5 acre sits at the base of a crescent hill with a wash that runs partially through the property. Above the wash is a small bluff overlooking the valley. The old jack-rabbit homestead foundation is present on the property near the bluff. Bureau of Land Management (BLM) land surrounds the property on three sides. The area is serviced by Bighorn Desert View Water Agency. Electricity is approx 1900 feet west near Garritson Ln.

Owner will carry: $2,500 down, a first trust deed of $4,450 at 7% interest amortized for 3 years. Monthly payments are $137.40 until paid.

Directions from 247: East on Bodick Rd for 4 miles, right onto Medina Dr. for .4 miles. Property is on your right.
