Welcome to 36505 Ditch Creek Road, a stunning 28 acres homestead. This offering provides a multitude of features: beautiful home, guest home, shop, commercial greenhouse, off-grid hydroelectric and grid power, direct access to vast BLM lands, irrigation rights with gravity pressurized system, creek frontage, orchard, & more. Enjoy exclusive privacy with a private gated entry and being the last home on Ditch Creek road before it turns into BLM and timber land. Nestled in the towering evergreens and beautiful landscaping, this fully updated estate is a private and secure oasis.Although you are connected to grid power, you also have the ability to run entirely off the hydroelectric and generator system. The system allows you to run primarily off-grid and use grid as back-up or run primarily on grid with the off-grid as back-up. The hydro system is truly unique and is the largest licensed private system in the area. The water diverts on BLM land from Ditch Creek and flows via a 12 inch line to the property's hydroelectric generator building. By the time the water reaches the building the pressure has built to an estimated 90 PSI which provides a formidable amount of power for the hydro generators. The generators deliver power to the Off-Grid control building and a bank of 24 batteries. The system has a 14.2kw inverter and a 14kw back-up generator which have been designed for the needs of this estate.
