Back on the Market! Property with a cabin. This 10.56 acre property sits just north of the 15 freeway in Yermo, California. Yermo is located in the Mojave Desert 13 miles east of Barstow and 9 miles north west of Newberry Springs. The property sits approx 300 feet southeast of Fort Irwin Rd. and .3 miles west of Old Yermo Cutoff.

There is a substantial amount of history in the area. Originally this 10.56 acre property was a 'jackrabbit homestead.' These homesteads were the last of the properties given by the government through the Small Tract Act of 1938. The Small Tract Act authorized the lease of up to five acres of public land for recreational purpose or use as a home, cabin, camp, health, convalescent, or business site to able-bodied U.S. citizens. When 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).

The wood shingle cabin is nestled among tall green palm and pine trees. This was the original cabin and is equipped with electricity. 3 Phase power is available on this property. There are two wells on the northern 5 acres; the primary well was drilled in 1984 and is 308 feet deep with water at 202 feet. The second well is not cased but drilled to 400 feet. There are two septic tanks on the property, one at the north of the property near the white single wide mobile and the other near the structure that burnt many years ago.

The property sits just at the base of a small hill with views of Yermo and Calico Ghost Town to the east. Calico Ghost Town is an old west mining town that was established in 1881 during the largest silver strike in California. Calico produced over $20 Million in silver ore over a 12 year span from its 500 mines. The property is now managed by the San Bernardino County Regional Parks. The Calico Mountains and surrounding area offer a geologically colorful backdrop to the brown of the Mojave Desert. Very few neighbors in the area give the property a rural feel.

The property is being cleaned of debris left by a previous tenant. The structures are not in livable condition and Sellers do not have title to the campers or manufactured home. There is a lot of possibility for this property and with a bit of elbow grease this could be a great getaway. Power, phones, water and septic are all available here.

Directions: From the 15, exit Ft. Irwin Rd. and continue north for 1.1 mile, turn right onto Old Yermo Cutoff and continue .5 miles, turn right onto Poppy Rd. to the property. There is currently a roadblock to prevent anyone from removing items from the property.
