The Lone Pine Ranch, a 27,000-acre property straddling Trinity and Mendocino counties, is a vast property of redwood forests, grassy meadows and a 16.5 mile stretch of the Eel River. And now its owners are putting up for sale.

This property is a magnificent Northern California outdoor utopia and it will only cost you $31 million to own it.

The ranch is currently owned by the descendants of the late stock market titan Dean Witters, who are looking to offload the property following 76 years of family ownership.

In essence, the Lone Pine Ranch is a remote piece of land nearly the size of San Francisco, with some of the most pristine wilderness Northern California has to offer. Brooks Witter, the great-grandson of the Wall Street savant, remembers being in awe of the vast wilderness as a kid.

“We would drive around and look for wildlife in the back of a truck. There are lots of deer, bear, coyotes, bobcats, porcupine, some mountain lions, wild pigs, lot of bird life. Elk have come back on the property in the last decade,” Brooks told SFGate.
