Land for sale in Vacaville, CA
The Buckeye Ranch comprises 2933 +/- acres of magnificent unspoiled wildlands. An easy hour from the busy San Francisco Bay Area, the ranch is located in Solano County, between the cities of Vacaville and Winters, just off of aptly named Pleasants Valley Road. While close to commerce, technology and the future, the Ranch is located in an area where growth is stable and quality of life considerations are a priority.
The Buckeye Ranch is nestled in the Vaca Mountains of California’s Coast Ranch. It lies within the Blue Ridge Berryessa Natural Area, a conservation corridor of 800,000acres of public and private lands, whose geographical boundaries, while informal and conceptual, were created to protect and preserve recreational lands, wild areas, agricultural lands and rural ranches such as the Buckeye Ranch against urban sprawl and threats.
The property shares much of its North and West boundaries with protected public lands of the Bureau of Land Management, The State of California, and the University of California Regents. Private lands bordering the Ranch on the West are protected forever with conservation easements. This Ranch is a strong and logical candidate for future voluntary participation in private land conservation easement protection as well.
The Buckeye Ranch is a wildlife treasure trove, with Black-Tailed Deer, Black Bear, Mountain Lion, Coyote, Bobcat, Wild Turkeys, and Feral Hogs, Small mammals, Amphibians and Reptiles, Raptors, Valley and Mountain Quail, Mourning Doves and Songbirds. One of the year-round streams, Miller Creek, historically supports a Native Rainbow Trout population.
The property elevations range from 300-2300 feet above sea level. There are many ponds and two year-round streams, Miller Creek and Wild Horse Creek.
The beautiful and diverse plant communities consist of annual grasslands, Valley Oak Savannah, Blue Oak, Grey Pine, Chemise, Redshank Chaparral, Coastal Oak Woodlands with Live Oak, Madrone, Toyon and California Bay.
The Ranch is made up of eight contiguous Solano County Assessor’s parcel. The current zoning is Agricultural 160 acre minimum, watershed. The property is currently enrolled in the California Land Conservation program, commonly known as the Williamson’s Act. Under this annually-renewing nine year contract, the property cannot be rezoned or developed for uses the than agricultural, open space, and recreational uses. In exchange, the land is tax based on its agricultural income potential, rather than being taxed at market value.
While each legal parcel could support a dwelling per Solano County Zoning ordinances, currently no building has taken place.
