The houses were built by a 30 year-licensed/now retired Californian Contractor for his family. A great deal of planning and financial investment went into the structure. The intent was to construct green, earthquake/fire safe, with minimal maintenance for the next 100 years.
The property has a well, (dug and lined in 2003) but it has never been connected. The organic avocado grove has a 10 year lease. The homeowner gets a lovely view of productive land and 20% of profit after expenses. Grove upkeep, irrigation, food, weeds, pests, and certification costs for the Organic Grove are the responsibility of those who lease the grove. The flat fertile low land has not been leased and is available for production should the new owner want to add greenhouses, row crops, or horse facility.
