Property Description

Nearly 1,800 acres of recreational privacy in Napa County, complete with runway access, three in fact, and abundant water, over 500 acre-feet licensed for storage and use. Mysterious Valley Ranch has been treasured by the same family for the past 48 years, and is ready for the next pioneer to lay out their vision.

The ranch consists of four legal parcels, one being non-contiguous, and sits about 6 miles northwest of Lake Berryessa and the Putah Creek drainage.  Aside from traditional transportation to/from the ranch, it is accessed most easily by small airplane.  The owner constructed the main runway at the ranch in 1971.  Known as Mysterious Valley Airport (FAA – 20CL), the runway (14/32) sits at about 1,410 feet elevation and is compacted gravel and is approximately 3,500 feet long by 30 feet wide.  Once you land, there is a taxiway turnoff which allows for an easy turnaround so you are all set up for the departure.

Surrounding the airfield are approximately 140 acres of irrigated pasture land, currently producing an annual cutting of hay.  There is a large equipment pole barn, and there are several other outbuildings to support the ranch’s equipment and storage needs.  The ranch is off-the grid, and does have a small solar array field installed.   It is almost all nearly surrounded by public land, including the BLM’s Knoxville Recreation Area

The fields and valley landscape that surround the main airstrip are home to 20 separate reservoirs of varying size.  They continue to be used for swimming, fishing, boating, crop irrigation, and stock watering.  With great thought over the past forty plus years, the owner has developed the water storage canal/ditch system, and roads throughout the ranch so that they offer maximum efficiency.

With the majority of the ranch perimeter-fenced with wildlife fencing, the ranch currently supports small herds of bison, scottish highland cattle, and alpacas.  Fly in, or drive, Mysterious Valley Ranch is a beautiful, serene place that has many potential uses to offer to a new owner.
