Cartago Springs ‘Triangle’

MLS#: 2310472

The “Triangle” is a one-of-a-kind, 2.39 acre parcel bordering with the  California Department of Fish and Wildlife’s Cartago Wildlife Area.

This one-of-a-kind parcel borders with California State property to the east and with CG Roxane (Crystal Geyser Water) to the north.

The eastern boundary is legally described as the ‘meander line of Owens Lake” and Inyo County describes its address as “Lakeshore.” The surveyor of record suggested one could therefore make the case that the property actually extends much further to the east, where permanent lake water exists.

In any case the parcel is secluded and scenic- perfect for an off-the-grid nature dwelling or personal private place to pull in your trailer. It is feasible to drill a shallow well here, as there is an artesian well just to the south.

See this gallery of photographs taken at the adjacent Cartago Wildlife Area wetlands.

The State declares The Cartago Wildlife Area as “218 acres of fresh water wetland and springs provide habitat for waterfowl, wading birds and shorebirds including western snowy plovers, white-faced ibis and rails. Owens Lake has been designated a Nationally Significant Important Bird Area by the National Audubon Society and American Bird Conservancy and 144 bird species have been documented on the area.”
