Bartlett ‘Runway’ [SOLD]

SOLD 04-09-19

This 19.57 acre parcel is located about 10 miles south of Lone Pine and has development potential for a residence, experimental hobbyist runway, trucker’s rest stop, solar farm, water plant, etc.

This parcel is split by a Highway 395 easement and also by a long unused Southern Pacific Railroad route.

Looking Northeast toward an ex-railroad trestle, the old Pittsburgh Plate Glass Factory, and the Inyo Range.

The tracks from the old Southern Pacific Railroad are long gone from the larger section to the east, but the straight and flat track bed remains on their right-of-way.

Over 1/2 mile of smooth and flat railroad bed stretches north-south that is actually unused railroad property. It may be possible to officially acquire the right-of-way (currently being explored), but certainly a prescriptive access easement across already exists, as it has be used and crossed by off-roaders for many years. 

The smaller section of the property to the west of the I-395 includes a paved section of the old highway.

A section of the property is west of I-395 and contains thousands of feet of the old highway to re-purpose.

There is also good quality well at the old Pittsburgh Plate Glass factory just north, so it is quite likely this parcel has abundant potable water just underground. This property is unique and could be developed into a commercial operation of some sort, or used as an off-the-grid residential site all to itself.
