502-Acre Roger Riley Ranch in Pittsburg Listed for Sale

by CC News

Roger Riley Ranch, one of the last remaining cattle ranches in Contra Costa County has been listed for sale. The 500-acre cattle ranch is an ode to a time long ago when cattle outnumbered people on the wide-open California East Bay rangelands.

Listing agent Todd Renfrew of California Outdoor Properties said, “You’ll be hard pressed to find a serene ranch property of this magnitude and uniqueness so easily accessible to many cities in California’s East Bay and San Francisco.”

The homestead consists of a 2,037 sq. foot home with an attached two-car garage and private well. Outbuildings include a 2,550 sq. ft. horse barn, 1,008 sq. ft. storage barn with concrete floors, and an additional detached two-car garage.

Seasonal creeks and pond, coupled with a developed natural spring with a gravity-fed holding tank, provide ample year-round supply of one of California’s most precious commodities, water, for grazing livestock and property landscaping. Two undeveloped springs exist on the property as well. There is a cattle lease in place on the property, presenting an additional income-generating opportunity for the new owner.

List price is $6,999,000.

If I had 7 million I’d buy it, 20-30 years from now that property will quadruple in value

Ugh. I’m terrified to see what might end up there. I sincerely hope someone buys it who will maintain the open space.
